Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I bought an HP Deskjet F4400 printer for college and it keeps saying the printer is offline. I have a Macbook Pro, so there's no "Control Panel." I looked under "system preferences" but was unable to right click on anything to turn in online. Please help.

Its likely the printer port that the printer is assiged to. I assume its plugged in via usb. power on the printer, then connect the usb cable. go into the printer properties, look for printer port. do not use LPT1 LPT2 or Com anything. make sure printer port is set to the USB port. Its a mac so it may be tricky to find. Quite often these printers set to LPT1 by default which is incorrect on a USB printer. good luck.

I have an hp deskjet f4400 printer. it was working on my pc. I have just purchased a macbook pro and now it says the printer is offline. It is setup for wireless. what should i do?


The only thing I can think of is if this is a new macbook pro it will have OS X 10.7 Lion on it and according to the hp website http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3837403&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=3742084 there are not Lion drivers for it and if hp were going to support lion with this printer they would have probably have been put up on the site by now.

My hp 2360 wont print, green light keeps on blinking, it says printer offline on the printer status bar


Make sure that cable to printer is attached and if printer still shows offline then in control panel for the printers make sure that you right click and choose Use Printer Online

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:
? The printer cover is open.
? The printer is out of paper.
? A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print
cartridge.
For information
