OfficeJet 6500A Plus Goes Offline and Won't Come Back

I'm having  trouble with my OfficeJet 6500A Plus, keeping it "online" to the wireless network in my home.  I am trying to print from my HP Pavilion laptop which has been loaded with the latest software from the HP Support site.
The printer shows itself to be online to my router.  I've even run the Wireless Setup Wizard over again to reintroduce the printer to the router.  But, no, my laptop considers the printer to be "offline" and, if I try to remove and reinstall the printer, Windows can't find the printer on the network.
By the way, my Pavilion laptop is new, purchased in July and it's running on Windows 8.1.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Denny LaBarge

  • Mac OS X Leopard Mail SMTP server keeps going offline and won't come on

    My SMTP in mail on my email accounts keeps going offline and I can't work out how to get it working again. My internet connection is fine. I am receiving emails. I was able to send earlier on my business email account but now my .mac account has gone offline and then my business on went on me.
    I only started using my business email account in mail today and loaded the account into mail. Does anyone have any answers for this as I can see there have been some other people who might have had a similar problem but I can't see any fixes?
    I have deleted and reloaded both my .mac and work account a couple of times now and restarted my computer but still no good.
    Can anyone help?

    I have that offline mail smtp server when I try to send emails from work with my macbook. I've always been able to send emails away from home using the login and password in the smtp configurations. It's a real pain since I use one email account for work and personal business. I can receive email but cannot send any. Everytime I have to answer an email while I'm working, I have to go to the browser, go to my provider's mail page, login and send from there my emails.
    Do we have the same problem?

  • Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter 1.03 - screen goes black and won't come back

    I have a new Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter to allow my original Apple 30" Cinema Display to connect to the new Mac Pro.  Shipped straight from Apple, it is firmware version 1.03.  I've never had flickering issues as so commonly described, but the display will often go black (possibly after a screen power save) and not come back.  when this happens I am still able to connect to and use the Mac via remote connection.  But the only way to get the screen back is either to unplug the adapter and plug it back in to the Mac, or to shut down and power up the Mac.  Is anyone else seeing this issue?

    Hello,
    From the news page here...

    See if it's related to this...
    It also seems to be related to later OSX versions, like 10.8.x & 10.9.x
    The 2012 macs (and later apparently) (also later OSX versions on earlier Macs can do it also), not waking normally from sleep after hours being in sleep. (noted here ...

  • All Mail accounts offline and won't come back

    Suddenly this morning, all accounts (4) on my main, desk, computer went off line. Nothing I do brings them back. I've reset all login credentials and am out of ideas.
    - I've checked with my ISP and they find nothing wrong
    - other emails in our domain still working
    - in fact, the mail is coming in on my other devices -- iPad, iPhone, Air, etc. (so it's not the server, clearly)
    I'm left to think the Mail app on this one computer has something wrong.
    Anybody know anything I can do?
    Running 10.6.8 and Mail ver 4.6
    Please help!

    Thanks!
    Seemed the answer was to disenable each account in Preferences, then click Enable This Account back to on. Each one in turn came back on line. Also found the problem in another computer in the office and it worked to bring that one back also.
    Much appreciated.

  • Why does my iphone 3gs screen goes black after reaching another party and won't come back on to press end the call

    why does my iphone 3gs screen goes black after reaching another party and won't come back on to end the call

    hi smalley3,
    Welcome to the Forums.
    The flickering issue maybe due to a bad LCD cable or in some cases, a faulty GPU (the GPU is integrated to the CPU, and the CPU is soldered to the motherboard).
    If there's still no image on the screen even after connecting an external display then you likely have a bad GPU.
    In this case, I recommend you contact support for service (and also to see if there's a consideration that can be done on the warranty repair).

  • Screen goes to sleep and won't come back on - how to fix?

    My 2009 MacBook screen goes to sleep and won't come back on. It just stays black while the computer is still running. This just started happening one day for no apparent reason. Anyway to reconcile?

    When you post for help, please state which OS X is installed.
    If you aren't sure, click About this Mac from your Apple menu 
    Troubleshooting advice can depend on that information.

  • After upgrading to mavericks my mac shut off and won't come back on

    I upgraded to Mavericks and my 2013 macbook pro shut off and won't come back on.  When I push the start button I can hear the chime and then my sleep light blinks really fast and then shuts off completely.  All I get is a white screen with the loading circle just going around and around.  I tried resetting the pram but that didn't work.  Any ideas?

    Reinstalling OS X Without Erasing the Drive
    Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the COMMAND and R keys until the menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears. Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    Reinstalling OS X Without Erasing the Drive
    Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the main menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility and press the Continue button. After Disk Utility loads select the Macintosh HD entry from the the left side list.  Click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If Disk Utility reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit Disk Utility and return to the main menu.
    Reinstall OS X: Select Reinstall OS X and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.
    Alternatively, see:
    Reinstall OS X Without Erasing the Drive
    Choose the version you have installed now:
    OS X Yosemite- Reinstall OS X
    OS X Mavericks- Reinstall OS X
    OS X Mountain Lion- Reinstall OS X
    OS X Lion- Reinstall Mac OS X

  • 15-r018dx display turns off and won't come back on

    I have a HP 15-R018DX laptop that I just bought and when I close the display, it turns the display off and won't come back on when I flip it open again.  I've already changed the Power Options so that the "what happens when you close the display" options are all set to "nothing happens".  Despite that, each time I close the display and open it again, the display goes blank and stays blank, though the status LEDs on the left side tell me that the compuer is still on and not hibernated, etc.
    The only way to return the display to normal is to push the power button (I have it set to hibernate when I push the power button) and then turn it back on again after it hibernates.  Then, the display is illuminated again like normal.  No amount of touching the touchpad, it's buttons, or keyboard keys will return the display to normal once it turns off after the lid is closed and re-opened.  Any ideas on what's happening and how to make the display turn on when opening the display again? Thanks in advance!

    I was also facing the same probs..
    bt when i reinstalled OS, nw alomost every part s ok except the brightness part..
    The option to adjust brightness seems unavailable..

    Hello QuinnDev,
    Thank you for posting in the Apple Support Communities.  It sounds like you are trying to use your MacBook Pro with a Thunderbolt Display in closed clamshell mode (MacBook Pro closed), but sometimes the display doesn't stay on.  I found an article that talks about closed clamshell mode.  You would have to fulfill the following requirements to use your display this way:
    Requirements for closed display mode:
    Power adapter
    External keyboard, mouse, or trackpad
    External display
    You can find all the steps and the full article here:

  • HT1339 After I disconnect from my PC, my iPod nano shuts off and won't come back on?  How do I fix this?

    When I disconnect from my PC, my nano shuts off and won't come back on.  I have tried holding down both the On/Off and the Home buttons -- but nothing...

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • MacBook Pro 2012. Replaced hard drive yesterday by apple. Went home working and now it turns off and won't come back on till I plug it in... Help!

    Have had a ton of issues with my Mac. Went to the apple store in march and they said my processor could be going bad and they basically did nothing. Yesterday I was using my computer put it to sleep. 10 minutes later I opened it up and it completely crashed. Drove 2 hours to get to apple because I am away at school and need my computer for finals. They replaced my hard drive and it was working perfectly fine till today. Now it turns on and works and then shuts off and it won't come back on till I plug it in. It's completely charged and I need it for my classes. I have apple care but I can't keep driving back to apple every day. I have a apple appointment tomorrow but this is ridiculous. Has anyone had any of these issues? What's it going to take for them to replace my computer I can't even live a day without it right now. And by the way. I could not even get any of my data off my old hard drive. So basically nothing is on this computer right now.

    Let them know how this is inconveniencing you.  For a replacement, I believe Apples general rule of thumb is if it comes in for the 3rd time for the same issue they will replace it, but it may vary by store.  It cant hurt to ask for a replacement.
