Re: why is my printer offline?

Go to system settings and select the ‘Printer’ option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the ‘Use Printer Online’ function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the ‘Printer Offline’ message occurs due to a ‘Job Stuck’ issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

Set peace of mind as your highest goal,and organize your life around it.

Hi, It might be as simple as just clicking use online or there could be an issue that is causing it to go offline. To help you please download the HP print diagnostic utility HERE and run it. It can check and fix most minor causes that will make a printer go offline.

Re: why is my printer offline?

My new computer is a Dell wireless and was set up to operate with my HP wireless printer. Everything has been working fine until today when attempting to print from the computer I received a message which says it's off-line. Uny help on how to correct this problem?
