How do i get my printer from offline mode back to online mode


  • Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  • Pull up 'My Computer' then click on 'Control Panel'. From the Control Panel, click on 'Printers and Faxes'. You will then see a list of Printers connected to the PC.

  • Delete pending print jobs to make sure that the correct document will be printed later and for you not to waste paper. Double click on the printer that you want to use, and a window will appear showing you a list of pending print jobs. Simply click on 'Cancel All Documents' from the 'Printer Menu'.

  • After you have deleted all pending print jobs, right click again on the printer icon and choose 'Use Printer Online'.

  • Try printing a test file, if it doesn't work the first time, reboot the PC.

Lights were flashing on printer and not printing. Couldnt get document cancelled. Replace catridge. Lights stop blinking, previous document cancel but printer still not printing


Check the printer properties in the control panel. Look in the status column. If the status is paused or offline, select resume or online or reset from the Printer menu option. Sometimes you have to turn the printer off and back on for it to start again. If it is an inkjet printer, don't unplug it. Some printers get messed up if they are not powered off using the power button.

My HP deskjet D4260 is offline. I have tried everything to resolve this but cannot find a way of etting it back online. Please help


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 - 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.
    Mac Instructions - 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.

My hp 2360 wont print, green light keeps on blinking, it says printer offline on the printer status bar


Make sure that cable to printer is attached and if printer still shows offline then in control panel for the printers make sure that you right click and choose Use Printer Online

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:
? The printer cover is open.
? The printer is out of paper.
? A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print
cartridge.

Printer is offline and will not print. Restarting does not help.


When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.
