HP officejet goes offline

homeboundMay 19, 2009

I'm having an issue with a fairly new (couple months old) HP Officejet J6450 all-in-one (same as the J6470, but it's the Costco model#) .

It's connected to a Linksys router and the thing periodically going offline. Pulling the printer's plug to reset the connection takes care of it for a couple days, but I'd like a permanent fix. Any ideas?

(I'm about to deal with HP directly, but I'm trying to locate my product literate first.)

Forgot to mention that I'm running XP and Vista (two computers) and the problem is with both. Router is connected to the XP computer with ethernet, wireless G to the other.

Seems like the printer is the problem, though.

Take a look at these posts linked below with that model and see if any fit your situation.

As this is new you could use the help line for HP. I found them very helpful when I had an issue with my printer, they walked me through things till we hit the problem

Here is a link that might be useful: Hp J6540 help
