Hp Photosmart c6180 offline

My printer shows as offline and I cannot get it to print.


HIstory.  I have a home network.  I was using mcaffe.  the printer went offline.  I downloaded new drivers and it was still offline.  I installed windows 7 and printer worked for a day or so.  Now it is back offline.  I am not very computer literate so I have a hard time when I do troubleshooting.


Please adv ise.

I've included a link to an HP document that includes troubleshooting steps as well as a link to download the Print diagnostic utility. I've added a second link to the Network diagnostic utility to help identify network issues.

Re: Hp Photosmart c6180 offline

I have tried various "solutions" to try and get my C6180 to print, but it always appears "offline", even though the hp diagnostics recognises that it is properly connected.  Nothing works.  It did print 1 1/2 pp of a document before it gave up the ghost again.  All inks are completely fresh.
