SOURCE: Canon i860 "printer offline" but light is blinking

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.

Canon pixma mp170 won't print. says printer is offline, but everything is connected and power is on.

Mercury is retrograde -- really!

I am assuming this is wireless? (but not enough details!!!)

Try to RE-boot your system (by shutting it down completely for at least a full 60 seconds or more!) to see if it will pick up the printer.

You can also try to work it from the main software control for the cannon printer.

Just set up cannon PIXMA MX870 printer. Cannot get it to print from wireless connection. In my printer box it says the printer is offline. It will print when I connect the printer with a cable. I use a...

I had the same problem - my printer showed that wireless LAN was enabled & my mac showed the printer but said it was offline. I went to preferences, print & fax, hit the + key to add a printer, added the canon printer again, set that printer as my default, did a print command from Word & that created a queue in the new default printer ... and it printed. Deleted the first Canon printer that was "offline." Oh, and I'm not sure if it made a difference, but before what I just described, I checked for software updates after the printer CD install process & uploaded one update.
