Photosmart C8180 Printer offline

All of a sudden my desktop cannot print to my printer. It is networked wirelessly and my laptop prints to it fine.

I have uninstalled everything related to the printer and reinstalled to no avail. This problem just started today after replacing an ink cartridge. I had just printed a document, replaced the yellow ink cartridge and then when I tried to print the same document after making some corrections to it it wouldn't print and I started getting the offline message.

I have followed all of the troubleshooting instructions on the HP site for this and still nothing.

Run the print and scan doctor, and check the results.

Also make sure the printer is still connected to the network.

Thank you for your reply.

All of a sudden after a day it started to work again, confused here but happy again none the less.

GREAT!!! The printer may have just fell off the network, and automatically got back online. If you have anymore problems, feel free to ask.
