I've download new drives & updates, plugged in all the cords, printed a calibration page but I can't print from my computer. I've run HP diagnostic tool & get printer is not connected message. I've switch USB ports & cables but still can't connect. My OS in Windows Vista 32 bit.

Does the printer show on your taskbar in the bottom-right corner of your desktop?

Have you tried to see if the printer will work on a different machine? Also are you using a USB hub or a USB port on your computer case? If so try plugging the printer into the back of the computer directly in the motherboard.
When a solution is found please mark the post that solves your issue.

This printer has been used and works with my IMAC, until I unplugged both the IMAC and printer and moved them to a new location.
;Now, with the USB cord connected, computer on, and paper in the tray, when I send a print job to the printer it will not print and gives the error message "printer offline". How do I fix this?
