install software , check and double check the cable connections , enable it in device manager and ... if that doesn't do it... search 4 that guarantee.

    I was also facing same issue with my HP printer it shows offline. I tried a lot to fix that however I was not able to fix that. I got this link http://www.printer-techsupport.com/Hp-pr... over the internet. I just visited and made a call on their toll free and got instant help for my HP printer.

    Restart it and check connections. If you are referring to it saying that in the Printers and Faxes windows, right-click and turn it Online.

    If using wifi try this - turn off printer, in "settings" find printer and "remove" it. then turn printer back on. Go back into stings and chose "add device" - your computer should now "see" the printer and you can re-install fwith one click! worked for me using HP laptop and printer!

    If you are sharing you need to go to control panel, open your default printer and go to customize your printer and you need to go to sharing and click on share this printer.

    By plugging it and switching it on. As long as the proper drivers are installed.
