Printer shown as offline when try to print but is connected to network

When I try to print nothing happens and a check on the computer of the status of the printer states that it is offline. A test of the ENVY 4500 printer shows that it is connected and to the same network as the HP computer. My tablet is also unable to find the printer.

Re: Printer shown as offline when try to print but is connected to network

Hello Barton46, and welcome to the HP Forums, I hope you enjoy your experience!


I see you are experiencing connectivity issues. I would like to help!


I would recommend powering down the printer and the computer, and unplugging the power cord from your router for 60 seconds.  After the router begins broadcasting again, power up your printer and computer.

I would also suggest following this document on Wireless printing center Troubleshooting Issues.


Also, do you have any other devices wirelessly connected?  Do they have any issue printing?


Good luck and please let me know the results of your troubleshooting steps. Thank you for posting on the HP Forums!
