Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer lists work offline

Pyropcman thanks for the response to my question. Unfortunately my question was added to the end of another person's question. I obviously did something wrong. I am printing wirelessly from my laptop. Most of the time it will work, but occasionally it will switch to work offline. I have tried to change it to work online, but it just adds a second work offline. I can usually fix it by turning the printer computer off and starting again. Is this a Vista glitch?

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.

Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.
fa3281g.png
If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

It says it's ofline


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.

    Windows says printer offline, but it is not offline. network settings confirmed. windows firewall turned off. scanner works perfectly over network, but printer is "offline"


    The printer offline error mostly troubles windows 7/8/10 users, The printers loses connectivity even when it is connected and operating. The status message displays offline on the computer, and the printer does not print. An Offline status indicates that the computer has failed to communicate with the printer. In some network conditions, the printer might get offline unexpectedly.

    Before going to the solution for this you must know when and why printer offline error takes place:
    The error may appear when Windows 8 diagnoses that the printer is unavailable, but unfortunately, most times it fails to tell whether the printer is really offline or if it has connectivity problems or printing errors. Reasons why your printer appears to be offline, include problems with hardware, such as disconnected cables or malfunctioning equipment, and problems with software, such as corrupted or incompatible driver files.
    These might occur when:
    1. The connection between the computer and the printer is slow/unresponsive.
    2. The printer has encountered an internal error
    3. There are multiple unfinished print jobs in the queue.
    There are some simple steps you can follow before going to any complicated way:
    Your printer offline can be a problem with the driver software. This is a small piece of code that Windows and the printers use to "talk" to each other. If the driver software is outdated, corrupted or incompatible with the version of Windows that you have installed, you may need to update it.
    Restart the printer and the computer or unplug its USB cable.
    Do check that the printer's power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. If the printer is connected to a power strip, make sure the strip itself is connected to the electricity supply and is turned on.
    In case you are using a network printer both wired or wireless, You restart the router as it may cause due to network failure.
    Different manufacturers come with their own diagnostics software which can inform the user about the problems coming up (Ex : HP's Print and Scan Doctor), Use it as it will be really useful.
    PRINTER OFFLINE ERROR Solution 1 :
    Type in Services in your windows searches and hit the enter key. Click on Services option from the set of search results as shown below.
    A new window for Services opens up. Scroll down and find the entry named Print Spooler.
    Now right-click on Print Spooler entry and then on Properties option.
    Set Startup type as Automatic from the drop-down menu.
    As next, hit the Start button and wait till windows start the Print Spooler. Once done, hit Apply button.
    Now if you look at the status of the Print Spooler, you can see that it is Started.
    Solution 2 :
    If the above method doesn't work for you, you can always try our second method. For that, type in Devices to the windows search and choose Devices and Printers from the search results.
    Now find the printer that is offline and right click on it. Click on the option See what's printing from the context menu that appears.
    A new window opens. Now click on the Printer tab and uncheck the option that says Use Printer Offline.

    Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


    Good Day,

    One thing you can try instead of deleting the doucment writer is to change the default printer. You can do this by right-clicking on the HP printer icon and selecting "set as default" from the drop down box. Also try turning the printer off and back on aswell as restaring the computer if you have'nt already. Did that printer ever work from that computer? How is it wired, by "switcher" do you mean a shared printer through you network(was printer sharing configured properly), or an A-B printer switch. Please clarify

    Hope this helps for now
