The term HP Printer Offline refers to an HP printer that is unable to communicate with the device providing the print job. Since an offline printer cannot accept or process new print jobs, it's best to pause all print jobs until the problem is resolved. Send no additional print requests to your offline printer until you've finished reading our troubleshooting guide. If you have print tasks in the queue, you may need to cancel them until you can reconnect to the internet. Remember to save your work so you may print it later.
