  1. printer offline


    I have the HP Print Smart app download from the Microsoft store. Have used on this Dell inspiron 15 3000 without a problem until recently. Now the app shows the printer is offline. The help in the app wants me to download their print and scan fix app. I am running windows 10 in S mode. Would like some advice. Thank you.

    :)

    HP Printer shows Offline

    I understand that your HP printer is offline. I’ll certainly assist you with this.



    However, please let us know:





    I would suggest you to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the HP article

    You may also want to refer the troubleshooting steps mentioned in the article

    Change a printer’s status from “offline” to “online”.

    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
