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?

Try not to interrupt the infrared port so that the connection of both laptop and printer will not be offline

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

    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"


    Go to your printer list (Start - Printers and Faxes or Start - Control Panel - Printers and Faxes). Find your printer, right-click on it and you should see an item named, "Use Printer Offline" or "Use Printer Online" in your list. If you click on that item, it will toggle back and forth between the two settings. If it's offline, it will say, "Use Printer Online". Also, the printer icon will be grayed out if it is offline.

    I ran out of paper while printing. when i added more paper the printer went offline. i can't go online. i am in safe mode and had no problem with the printer until now.


    Hello sagold15,
    For some reason your printer went offline during the out of paper. Go into your printer section and right click the printer in subject and check it the "Use printer offline" is checked. If so, uncheck it and your printer will be back online. This will help your question.

    Good luck and thank you.

    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
