Under printers, On the Hp 3100 model, right click on it, if it shows Use Printer Online then select that Option. Else if it shows "Use Printer Offline" it means to say that your printer is online.
Also check that whether the Power is On to the printer. Communication cable is connected. Proper printer port is selected.

Why the offline message


Hi,
Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Hp deskje d2360 printer showing offline error


Hi,

The solution for an offline error of a printer is to check the proper connection of the printer.

Two options exist to turn off the offline mode.

If you choose the first option to change the offline state of the printer,

then go to Control Panel and then 'Printer and Faxes' option on the Control Panel.

Double-click on the printer you want to change to online mode from the displayed window.

A pop-up window will open and you need to select 'Uncheck Printer Offline' option from the menu bar.

My HP deskjet D4260 is offline. I have tried everything to resolve this but cannot find a way of etting it back online. Please help


Once you have added either a USB or networked printer to your PC or Mac computer, you can begin sending documents to print. However, on occasion, a print command will create an error on the printer and take it offline, which will prevent all future jobs from printing. To resolve this issue, you will need to change your printer settings from offline to online.
    PC Instructions - Open the Start menu and click on the "Printers and Faxes" icon. This will open a window with a list of the printers currently set up on your computer. - Double-click on the icon of the printer you want to change to online. A pop-up window detailing all current print jobs will open. - Go to Printer in the menu bar of the pop-up window and uncheck "Use Printer Offline." This action will change the printer from offline to online.
    Mac Instructions - Open System Preferences by clicking on the icon in the Dock. - Go to the Print & Fax control panel under the Hardware category. - Select the printer you want to take online from the list on the left side of the screen. Then click on the "Open Print Queue" button. - Click on the "Resume Printer" button at the top of the queue window to change the printer from offline to online.

My HP Photosmart C309a series will not print anymore. It says I am offline however when I go into the control panel and right click on the printer, it is online. Any sugestion?


Instructions
  1. 1

    Check the cables to and from the printer to the computer and make sure that all of the connections are secure. A disconnected cable is often the cause of rendering the printer offline.

  2. 2 Turn the printer off and back on. Sometimes it could be just a glitch in the network. Reset the printer by turning it off and then wait 60 seconds and turn it back on again.
  3. 3 Check the toner or ink cartridge. Most HP printers have the capacity for both color and black ink or toner cartridges. They will normally run on just one of the two; however, when the one installed becomes too low or is installed incorrectly, it will go offline.
  4. 4 Check for torn paper, paper clips, sticky label residue and other items that could be the cause of printer jams. Any of these will stop a printer in its tracks.
  5. 5 Set the printer as your default printer and see if this resets it to online status. From the Start menu, select "Control Panel". Select "Printers and other Hardware". Under "Pick a Task", select "View Installed Printers or Fax Printers". Select the questionable printer that is offline. Select "Printer" from the pull-down menu. Click on "Set Printer as Default".

Try this. Go to Start, Printers and Faxes, right click on your printer. When the menu opens make sure there is NOT a check mark next to "Use Printer Offline".
