Hi everyone i need help i have a printer its a few years old its an HP photosmart C6380 all in one wireless. we lost the cd in the move so i had to reinstall the software through the website. which was fine but now i want to move the computer but not the printer to another room and make it wireless again. so i connected the printer to my router but it still continues to say my printer is offline. (just once it said that when i printed) now the computer and printer wont talk. unless i hook up the usb cord. I am working with a windows 7 home premium operating system 64 bit.
i would greatly appreciate any help. THANKS

This worked well. Had to make one other change in there but don't remember where it was. Somehow my use printer offline was greyed out and I had to get admin rights first. Then I was able to uncheck the option and print again. Not clear how this happened but thank you for the solution.

I followed your instructions but it will not allow me to untick the 'use printer offline button. Any other suggestions as to where else I might be able to change this setting.
Thanks for your help

I have a Diskjet D2360. It was working on very fine but suddenly the paper got jammed for some reason.
When i checked in the Printers and Faxes it seamed the paper is jammed. I got the paper removed but after that it shows that printer is offline. When i try to make it online the status changes to "Offline-Offline". So i again clicked on Printer to offline, and this changed the status to Offline.
The light on the on/off button keeps on blinking. I tried pressing the button a hundred times but it neither gets off nor it gets on......it just keeps blinking. I switched off and on the system and the printer a couple of times but the problem still remains. I even deleted the printer and re-installed it, but still the same problem.
No matter what i do the status remains as "Offline". When i open the top cover the status changes to "Door Open", but as soon as i close the the door the status changes to "Ready" and instantly changes again to "Offline".
Iam using a Windows 7 - 32 bit OS.

What if we are wireless and there is no USB cable? Also, I'm on a MAC, are the steps different? I keep trying lots of things and can't seem to get it to work.
Thanks for any help!
