Click Start and then go to Printers and Faxes (XP), Printers(Vista), Devices and Printers(Win 7)
1. Right Click on your printer Icon 2. Click Open or See What's Printing 3. Click the option that says Printer on the upper left corner of the window that pops up. 4.

I have A Canon MX410 printer and is showing message offline and I have unplugged and plugged the printer. I have a Mac Mini and it worked fine for awhile. What to do??? Thanks Rick


Is the Pixma connected to a wireless router (or connected by USB or ethernet cable)? It could be that the router connection failed. Try restarting the router, or repeat wireless connection on the Pixma.

My HP 1315v psc is only printing the first half of the sentences. the last half is missing. It prints pictures ok, but not my letter I wrote. It's like I tore the letter in half and had only the left...


Mostly pictures are in color, if your color cartridge is good it will gives you good print,if your mono cartridge clogged you wont get proper mono prints.. remove mono cartridge take ear buds dip in to the water clean nozzles gently, take print out then chem repeat two three times if result not satisfied, replace mono cartridge..best of luck..

Printer is offline


Hi, turn it's power on. be sure the usb/data cable is connected to the cpu, if still not, remove the printer's adapter and connect it again, power it up again. if not still online, restart your pc.



When you want to print a document, you choose print and select your favorite printer but nothing happens. You look at the printer menu and see the pesky printer offline message and instant frustration. The task of the moment is going from offline to online. With creativity and patience, you'll have your printer back online in no time.

Instructions



Attempt to set the printer to online. This may not often work but it's the first action to take. Go to "Settings" and then "Printers". Right click on the "Printer" and select "Use Printer Online". Test the printer to see if it now prints.


Clear any print jobs. Double click on the "Printer" after performing the above step. Go to the "Printer Menu" and select "Cancel All Documents". There could have been a stuck print job that would cause the printer to go offline. Try once again to set the printer back online and try printing a test page.


Turn on the printer. Make sure the printer is turned on and turn it off, wait a minute and then turn it on again. Check to see if the is jammed. Check all the network connections to make sure none are loose. Repeat the above steps again if necessary.


Restart the computer. If this doesn't work, you will have to reinstall the drivers. Go to "Settings" then "Printers" and select the printer. Right click on the printer and choose "Properties". Under the "General" or "Details Tab" look for the driver button and select it and choose the driver again. You may also have to download the driver from the printer manufacturer website.


Reinstall the printer. Under "Printers" in the "Settings" menu, go back and select the printer, then delete the printer and reinstall the printer through the add printer wizard. Use the latest printer driver from the printer manufacturer's website.



Hope it helps.

PRINT IS FINE FIRST HALF OF PAGE, BUT QUICKLY FADES/WEAKENS LAST HALF OF EACH PAGE


You need to clean your print head nozzles. Find menu on your printer and push the button then use the up and down arrows to navigate the options. Find the one that says "maintenance" and push "ok" or "enter" from your printers key pad. Then find the "clean print head or nozzle" option and again push the "ok or enter" button on your printers keypad. Follow the instructions to complete the cleaning and print a test page to make sure your problem is solved. If not, repeat the cleaning until the ink flows through your print head correctly.

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.

my print is offline, how can I fix?

My HP printer 2420 leaves "ghost" prints on the pages.


This can be caused by one of two things.

1. faulty wiper blade on your toner so that the previous image in not being wiped off the drum.
2. worn fuser sleve.

To work out which it is you will need to do a half stop test: print off a normal document then when it is about half way through the printer ( unfortunatly you may have to repeat this to get the timing right) open the front cover. remove the toner cartridge. if you can see the ghosting on the page the it is the toner. if its not there then its a new fuser. to save on money and if your confident enouh you may be able to just chane the fuser sleve depending on the state of the fuser on a whole.

hope this helps
