    My printer application says the printer is not connected.  But the cable is plugged securely into both my computer and the printer.  The printer is turned on.  I have tried to unplug and plug back in all elements.  I cannot print from any application.

My CD won't catch in my drive, and it won't allow me to reconnect my printer after disconnecting it for another use for another computer. Is there anyway to add this printer without having to use the CD. HP Photosmart 8050?

Thanks...

My printer says offline and won't print


Is your printer turned on?
Connected to the computer?
Showing an error message on the printer?
Typically, your computer will set a printer offline when it can't talk to it, so we do the above testing first...
If your printer is indeed on, and it's connected to the computer, there are things to try:
change connection wire.
change which port it's connected to on the computer
test on another computer

Printer not responding


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

Connecting to printer through network


What operating system are you using? If it is xp it is very easy. Right click on your printer on x computer and click sharing and share it with an easy name like HP Laser, then on y computer open run command by going to start and run and in there you will type in \\xcomputer name which you can get by right clicking on my computer on x computer and choose computer name. once this is typed in run on y computer press ok and you will get window with some shared folders and also a printer. Just double click on printer and it will ask you to install drivers and it will connect but your x computer has to be on to be able to print from y computer.Same principle with 2 vista computers. If one is vista and one is xp this might be little more involved. Hope this helps.
