Customer Question
It says "printer offline"...

It says "printer offline" when I try to send something from the computer to print--how can I fix that?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?

HP Envy 5540, less than a year old. I printed out diagnostics, which say it is connected, but obviously not. Tried rebooting both router and printer; didn't work.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

Dell PC laptop Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Never has happened before. Had just tried to print out store coupon which had been e-mailed to me.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

That's all I can think of.
