First, turn off your printer, and uninstall the drivers/software (all hp components installed with the printer), restart your computer.

You can try resetting the machine now:

Press the On button and turn off the HP All-in-One. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Unplug the power cord from the back of the HP All-in-One. Wait for 20 seconds. Plug the power cord back into the HP All-in-One. Plug the power cord into the wall outlet. Turn on the HP All-in-One by pressing the On button.

If the above troubleshooting methods don't seem helpful, proceed to the next step...


Now follow the below instructions:
Remove all the cartridges, clean the contact points on the cartridges and on the printer using soft brush/cotton dipped in alcohol/acetone /spirit.
While the cartridges are kept for drying, do the following:
Turn it off > Disconnect usb cable, power cord, inthernet cable; >remove the papers from the tray >open the back panel door (the rear door where you clear paper jam). Also turn off the mains switch which the dc adapter is plugged in. After keeping it Off for about 5 minutes, turn on the printer again with only the power cord connected, keep tapping the cancel button while it boots up and again leave it On for few minutes > turn it off > connect all the cables > again turn it On and keep pressing the power button while it boots up. Now you can install the cartridges. Check the status message. It should work fine now.

If the problem persists,

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How do I change from offline to online?


When running a WIRELESS PRINTER, it happens to me all of the time, Turn the Power OFF, wait 15 seconds and while you are waiting, CLEAR OUT your Printer Que... Then Power back up and then it should work.. If this did not work, then Do it again and UNPLUG ALL the cords to the Printer and wait 30 seconds and then replug them. If it continues, then you need to remove and reinstall the Printer on your list of available printers...

Trying to print 'offline'. Computer recognises it is offline but will not print. Error message says 'Printer is offline' which is as it should be. Printer is HP photosmart C4580.


So, if you want to print, the printer must be online. Offline method doesn't work to print. When the computer sayst that the printer is offline, it means ypur printer is turned off or you don't connected the printer to PC.
As in conclusion, if you want to print set the printer online.

Printer is offline ever


I would suggest you one option if the operating system is windows. You have to go to Start -->Control Panel --> Printers and Faxes . Then you will see your printer icon there. RIght click on that. Check whether you are having an option "Use printer Online" or "Set printer Online". If you have that option , just click on that and apply the settings and see what happens - Thank you
