There are only 2 reason when printer says offline.

Ist. When computer does not communicate to printer and this is happen because usb cable not plugged in from printer to computer properly or its loose. If use cable already plugged in properly and try to plug the usb cable in a different port in your computer and then restart the computer. and if you are using wireless printer and wireless connection on printer is disconnected then Run the wireless printer setup again by printer disk.

if issue still persist then follow step 2.

IInd. Go to Start>>printer and devices>>here you will have your printer>>right click on it from your mouse and left click on Use this printer online

My printer keeps going offline. What can I do to get it back online?

I understand your Printer is offline on your Windows 8 computer.
The easiest thing to do is just rebooted everything. Turn off router, computer and printer.
Wait a few minutes and turn on router, computer and printer.
Before trying to print make sure there is nothing waiting to be printed. Right click on your printer and see whats printing. Remove if anything there. Try to print again.
If the printer still showing offline try installing and running HP Print and Scan Doctor.
Download and install at this location.
Let me know how this goes.

My printer is connected, nut doesnt seem to work

Check whether the printer is in offline. Double click the printer icon in the bottom right of the screen (near time). Or double click your printer in the printers and faxes. Your printer job menu will open. Select printer and check whether use printer offline is ticked. If so, remove it. The another problem is your usb port number may be changed. check it in printer properties.

Printer status says offline, and we can not print on laptop

If you're offline with the printer, you definitely won't be able to print.

I'm assuming you're using Windows XP here. Most Windows products will be similar...

On the laptop, click on the Start button, then Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Find your printer in the list, right-click on it and click "Use Online" or uncheck the "Offline" box.

Good luck! Remember to rate the solutions!

Printer Offline

If your problem still persists then If the printer and the printserver is on and connected to the printserver and the router respectively. Then try right clicking on the printer icon in the printers and faxes window to set it online. Try Printing. If it did not work, then right click on the printer icon again > Properties > Ports > set the proper network port. Apply the settings and try Printing.
