  3. why does my printer continue to be offline

    Hi,



    Thank you for posting in our Microsoft Community.



    There are multiple known causes of this issue, such as third party anti-virus software, corrupted system files, outdated driver and also intermittent connections if your printer is connected wireless.



    To further isolate this issue, we would like to gather more information why your printer keeps on getting offline for us to provide the best possible resolution.



    • What is the current build and version of Windows installed on your computer?
    • Are there any recent software or hardware changes made to your computer prior to this issue?
    • Are you getting any error message? If yes, what is the exact error message?
    • Where do you see the message that your printer is offline?
    • Are there any third part anti-virus application installed on your computer?
    • How is your printer connected? (Wireless/USB)


    In the meantime, we suggest you run Windows Printer troubleshooter and check if that will fix the problem. Refer to the link below for suggested steps on how to fix printer problems in Windows.

    How do i fix printer offline

    Printer offline

    Hi there,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    Could you please help me with the below question:

    • Did you make any changes to the computer before this issue started?

    Printer will continually switch itself to offline mode due to an IP port issue. To keep the printer from switching to offline mode, you must validate the printer's IP address.

    Meanwhile, please follow the troubleshooting steps as mentioned below:

    Steps:

    1. Press Windows andR
      key together on your Keyboard.
    2. Type Control and hit enter.
    3. Click on Hardware and sound> click on Devices and printers.
    4. Select the HP Printer 2540, right click on it.
    5. Uncheck the option use printer offline and select
      properties.
    6. Go to the Ports tab at the top of the pop-up window.
    7. Click on "Configure Port"
    8. Check that the "Printer Name or IP address:" box is the same as the IP of your printer.
