my wireless printer shows offline printing...how do i get it online?

I have been using my laptop and wireless printer for quite awhile.  All of a sudden I can't print, it keeps showing printer offline.  I can't figure out how to get it online.  Any help?

Re: my wireless printer shows offline printing...how do i get it online?

Please read this post  then provide some details.  What printer model? What operating system? How is the printer connected - USB, wired LAN, Wireless LAN, bluetooth? 

 

Running the diagnostics at http://www.hp.com/go/tools may help resolve the issue.

Previous suggested tool (http://www.hp.com/go/tools) showed everything was ok (checked) but my printer still showed offline.  I finally found below web site, although not specific to my HP P2015dn, step 8 (Stop then Start print Queue) resolved the problem.

My symptom: both HP printers suddenly stopped working from my DESKTOP & showed as either OFFLINE or error message.  Both printers cable connected to Linksys router.  However, throughout problem, my LAPTOP could print successfully to both printers.

My HP OJ Pro 8500 A910 sometimes shows off-line and won't let me print.  How do I fix this?  I have a work PC, and sometimes am on a VPN, and sometimes not.  It has worked for in both modes in the past, but wouldn't last night.
