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.
- 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.
- 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.

If you have no errors on the printer, the printer must have ink and paper and a ready or green light on. After that, go to control panel, printers, and right click on your printer icon. make sure it is checked as the default printer, and if it says offline, click on use printer online. If there are no errors on the printer you should be ready to print.

Unplug it and then re plug it in; I suggest USB connection over anything else; don't worry about self install if you already have done so in the past. In the print > hit properties on the icon for bubblejet > go to the ports tab > scroll all thw way to the bottom and click the "USB" checkbox. and you should be good.
A couple suggestions. Unplug the usb cable from the pc to the printer, make sure there is no paper jammed in the machine, unplug the machine from the wall and see if you can move the print head left to right freely. If nothing is obstructing it plig the power cord in with out the usb cord plugged in. See if the machine goes to ready. If all of these fail, that means the main board has been damaged by a power surge, and it would be cheaper to replace the machine than repair it. Good luck!
