There are many reasons that your printer may be indicated as being "offline" or "not responding". Basically the printer and computer are not able to communicate. Since there are multiple causes for these messages, there are also multiple possible resolutions. The steps below will help in resolving the issue and possibly identify the cause.
Verify Printer Power :
Make sure the printer power is on. Press the power button to turn on the printer.
If the printer will not power on, check the power cord connections. Disconnect and reconnect the power cable at both ends. Then press the power button to turn the printer on.
Select the Appropriate Printer
Before you print, be sure you have the appropriate printer selected.
If the wrong printer is automatically selected, you may want to set the desired printer as the default printer.
If the same printer is listed multiple times, you may have to remove the duplicates and try to print again. It may be necessary to remove all of the listed printers and then reinstall.
Power Cycle Printer

Once turned off, disconnect the printer's power cord from the back of the printer. Wait approximately 30 seconds before you reconnect it.
