a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

First step I would try is; unplug printer usb cable, then power down printer, reconnect usb cable to printer, power printer back on. If all this fails then lets try one other possible fix. Go to start select RUN & type services.msc, ok now you should have a services window that popped up. On the right hand side locate "Printer Spool" and right click on it, then select "Restart". this should refresh your printer spool. Hope this was helpful.

I had the same problem with a Brother MFC-6490CW AIO printer. Here is how I resolved it:
Open the printers folder.
Right-click on the Brother printer and display the Properties page
Select the Ports tab.
In my system (Vista Premium), the selected port was a WSD port (whatever that means). Further down the list, there was a TCP/IP port that was obviously created by the Brother installation software. I selected the Brother-created TCP/IP port (which deselected the WSD port), applied the changes, and suddenly my printer was online. No idea what the difference between these two ports is, but I'll stick with the TCP/IP port until further notice.

Do you mean it says "offline" under the printer icon in your PC's printer dialog box?
Right click it , then select "use printer online".
Please let me know

Phoned Canon today with the same problem. All I had to do was right click on the MP620 printer in printer control panel, then make sure that "Use Printer Offline"is not selected. Worked for me. Goodluck
