- Check the power status of HP Officejet 4655
- Check if the network is enabled and if the internet connection is stable and connected
- Check for physical detachments of cables, and check if the wireless is switched on the printer.
Sometimes changing the local wireless password may have brought the HP Officejet 4655 offline. Sometimes when the password is changed for the local network, the printer configuration is often overlooked. The following are the chronological steps to be taken to resolve the printer offline error. The error for the printer to appear as offline is identified on the computer, mobile or tablet in the printer notification area. The first step is to check if the HP Officejet 4655 is powered on. On the LCD readout navigate to the wireless module and check if the printer is showing as connected to the wireless. If the printer is not connected, then you need to run the wireless connectivity wizard and go through the steps to connect the printer back on to the network. In the case of wired networking, ensure that the physical cable is not detached from the printer and also on the router end. If the printer still shows as offline but the hardware end is perfectly connected, remove the printer from the printer setting and reinstall the printer with the drivers.
Printer not connected
After the print command has been issued the HP Officejet 4655 may not commence printing and may be stopped at the spooling stage. The status can be seen from the print notifications on the computer from which the print command is given. The hp officejet 4655 printer is a non- portable design and normally when the printer is installed there is no occasion to actually move the printer at all. So over time there is a possibility that the printer may have been moved, thereby dislodging the cables. So check if the connecting cables are secure both at the printer end and at the router or the computer end. Restart the printer and check the LCD for connection status after reboot of the printer. If the wireless connection is showing as not connected, then run through the wireless setup process from the LCD screen, under the module wireless network.
Compliance issues and general non-compatibility are the major reasons for printer not working on a particular OS. The command areas of the software are Operating System dependant and they require full compatibility with the printer software in order to function seamlessly. Not all issues that may arise on the HP Officejet 4655 are a result of continuity interruptions or hardware. HP Officejet 4655 not being able to print could be a result of OS issues. The result of OS updates may make drivers incompatible unless the corresponding drivers have also been updated. OS issues manifest themselves when there is a non-updated software scenario.
When there is a paper jam, the result is usually due to excess dust or moisture leading to sheets of paper sticking together. The main reason of Paper jam can be countered by proper sieving of the papers before loading the input tray, by proper aligning of the guides. Sometimes, tight guide placement too can lead to paper jam.
When the HP Officejet 4655 encounters a paper jam, switch off the printer. Remove the paper output tray and see if there are remnants of paper from the jam in the output area. Then slide out the input tray and check for jam in the input derailleurs. By flipping the HP Officejet 4655 on the right side, you can examine the bottom of the hardware where the paper loops through and the jammed paper can be removed slowly and carefully from this area. Now care should be taken that the paper is removed slowly and not in a stop and go manner.

Prints a blank page
Printing of blank pages occur normally when the printer has been left idle for a long time and the print heads have dried up. The HP Officejet 4655 has an option under maintenance to clean the print heads, and after running this option it is advisable to check if the problem is resolved.
HP Officejet 4655 is not immune to network issues, as the cause of the issue can for the most part, be external. As with connectivity issues, sometimes with a change in the router passwords, the printer would have not been updated. As a result of poor or cut network connectivity, the printer will not be able to carry out the print command and the result may be sub optimal. To correct the network issue, the first step is to physically check the condition of the network, if the printer is connected locally. Over time there may be physical degradation of the network cable and this may lead to break in network connectivity. If the actual network connectivity has been tested intact, then it will be incumbent upon the user to reinstall the network preferences in order to rule out data corruption.
