Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

5 Answers

Canon i860 "printer offline" but light is blinking

The printer says "offline" and there is no option to put it "online". Also, when I go to print, the light flashes green as if it's about to print, then it stops and I get the "Error; printer offline" thing. When I go to print monitor, the Canon i860 is there twice. The main one isn't an option, though there is a green check mark next to it. The one that is a highlighted option is the Canon i860 Copy1. Frustrated..... Any suggestions?

Move mouse pointer on to your printer icon in the Printer folder. Does a right click and click on the sixth line of the menu (“Use printer on line”). Then it will change as “Use printer offline”. Make sure the printer is set as default printer.

Printer off line means it is not set to print. You need to set it to online either with a lever or a button. It will go online and then it will print. It doesn't mean online like on the net just online ready to print with your computer.

    You may just need to make it your default printer. Click on printer in the control panel and choose this printer as default. Delete any other printer that isn't in use.

Go to you printer icon in the printers folder, right click on both printers mentioned and cancel all documents. Firsly disconnect printer from usb or parallel port. Next uninstal both printers as the copy one refers to a second installation.(right click, then either uninstal or remove) Insert your cd driver disc and install driver, then when prompted connect printer. If again this fails, then either try another cable or connect in another port.

First go to your PC. Press start, settings, printers and fax. Right click the printer icon and you can turn it online from there. there is most likely no online button on the machine itself.

SOURCE: canon i860 error codes

Try this: With your i860 printer turned ON, press and hold the I/O switch then pull off the power cord. This will turn off your printer. But without lifting your finger on the I/O switch put back your power cord. the I/O switch will blink for a second and will go off, then turn-on your printer again and see if it works.

Remove the data cable from the back or size of the printer. Turn the printer on and let it cycle. Then plug back in the data cable. It should show a green light by the cable if you are reconnected.

My hp 2360 wont print, green light keeps on blinking, it says printer offline on the printer status bar


Make sure that cable to printer is attached and if printer still shows offline then in control panel for the printers make sure that you right click and choose Use Printer Online

What the flashing light means
The Power light can flash for several reasons:
? The printer cover is open.
? The printer is out of paper.
? A problem exists with the printer, such as a paper jam or a problem with a print
cartridge.
