    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.

    You can also refer this link for more information
    about Printer issues.

    Hope it helps.

    Printer keeps going offline when windows 10 updates

    Hi Graham,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that your printer shows offline.

    • When you say “Printer keeps going offline when windows 10 updates” do you mean that the printer goes offline after installing updates?

    I suggest you to follow the below given methods and see if that helps.

    Method 1:

    I suggest you try
    changing the printer’s status from “offline” to “online”
    and check if it resolves the issue.

    Method 2:


    If the issue persists, I would have you download and run the HP Scan doctor from the manufacturers website. Refer to the article and follow the suggestion on
    Resolving Printer Offline problem using the HP Print and Scan Doctor.


    Method 3:


    If the issue persists, I suggest you refer to the article
    Troubleshooting offline printer problems
    and perform the troubleshooting steps mentioned and see if that helps.

    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    Zaki

    PRINTER OFFLINE

    Networked Printer showing "Offline"

    Hey guys,

    I'm having a slight issue with one of my printers in that it's showing offline and I can't print to it.

    It's a Datamax label printer which is connected to my network via a Netgear print server, this has then be added to one of my servers for sharing etc.

    So far I've tried the below.

    - Classic on/off.
    - Removing from server and re-adding.
    - Ensuring that under port configuration SNMP Status is disabled.
    - Assigning to different IP.
    - Restarting Print Spooler.

    I can ping it fine and the printer itself is letting me do manual test prints using its interface, but no matter what I cannot get it to stop showing up as offline and allowing me to print to it over the network. I should add that it's worked fine for the past year.

    Any suggestions?
