Hi @Hawaiian1997,

Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.


Thank you for posting your query. I'll be more than glad to help you.

I understand that you are facing issues with your HP DeskJet 2132 All-in-One Printer wherein it is on pause mode.

 

This issue could occur if the pause printer option is checked in the printer driver settings.

 

Let's go through a few steps that may help to fix this issue.

 

And here are a few steps listed below: 

 

1. Turn the printer off and on, and then make sure it is in a ready state.

2. Search Windows for devices, and then click Devices and Printers in the list of results.

3. Find the icon for the printer you originally installed.

4. Right-click the icon for the default printer, and then select See what's printing. The print queue window opens.

5. Click Printer. If a checkmark displays next to Pause Printing and Use Printer Offline, click each item to remove the checkmark. Try to print.

 

You may also check the link: Printer is Offline (Windows)

 

Let me know if this works.
 

You have a good day ahead.
