    Printer connected via wireless continually says offline. Downloaded drivers to computer, added another "printer" as copy 2 and it prints everything, but when I shutdown, that copy 2 printer disappears.

Make sure that the paper paths are all clear, open and close all covers and power off then power on again. If this persists unplug the netwok connectiona dn try connecting and printing directly to it via a parallel port or try unplugging the JetDirect from the printer. If this works then the JetDirect network card is at fault and needs to be replaced.

Hi,

One way to make the printer go "on-line":
1. opening your "Printer & Faxes", the HP DeskJet F380 would be shown as an installed printer, by doing a right click, you would be presented with various options including making it go online.

There are two (2) areas that you can configure to make it stay always online:
i. in the same "Printer & Faxes", right click on the HP DeskJet F380, click on "Properties", in the next window click on the Advanced tab, tick "Always available", set Priority to "1", in the "Printer" tab, uncheck "Power Save".
ii. open your "Device Manager" (right click on "My Computer", click on Properties, click on "Hardware" tab, click on "Device Manager" button. Expand your "Universal Serial Bus controllers" (click on the + sign of the last entry), right click on each and everyone of your "USB Root Hub". Click on "Properties", click on "Power Management" tab, uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
After each and every re-configuration it is of course required that you click on Apply/OK.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: Printer status offline

I just ran into the same problem. The computers on the network that were running XP were showing the printer as "Ready", but all of the computers running Vista were showing the printer as "Offline".

After trying a number of solutions that I found on other message boards, I accidentally discovered that the problem was an IP address conflict. It seems that the server changed the address on the printer, which didn't bother the XP machines but brought the Vista machines to their knees.

Press and hold the blue button (HP called it the "Go" button) for 5 seconds, which will print a configuration report. In the TCP/IP section you will see the IP address for the printer. Next, open the Printers window, right-click on the P2015 and click Properties. Click the Ports tab. Find the port that is checked and click the "Configure Port..." button. If the "Printer Name or IP Address" field differs from the IP address on the configuration report, change it to the one on the report. It took a few seconds after hitting OK for the computer and prrinter to link up again, but that solved the problem for me.

SOURCE: the printer will not print because the status is

This can occur if the usb has been jossled loose. I would unplug the usb, unplug the printer. Wait 2 minutes. Plug the usb back in and plug the power back in.

Why the offline message


Hi,
Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

Offline status


The most likely cause for this OFFLINE status on the PC is which interface is selected on the printer.
I think the printer defaults to Serial interface, so if you are using USB ensure you select the USB interface via the control panel on the printer, similarly if the connection is parallel ensure the parallel interface is selected.
If the connection is serial, ensure the cable is of the correct pin configuration and ensure the serial interface is set up correctly.
