As long as i have my usb cable hooked up to my printer and laptop it works but when i disconnect the cord its offline.what should i do?


It may not be configured to the correct port.The port selected could have been the USB port that's why when you disconnect the USB cable printer goes offline and would not print wireless. Follow the steps below if you are using a WINDOWS computer: For windows XP :
  • Click on start then go to printers and faxes.
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win vista
  • click on start,in the search box key in printer then hit enter on the keyboard
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • go down to properties
  • click the ports tab
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
For win 7
  • click on start,in the search box put in devices and printers and hit enter
  • right-click on the default printer canon pixma mx340 series
  • click on printer properties
  • check to see which box is checked.If the usb port box is checked,that answers the reason why printer goes offline and would not print wireless when USB cable is disconnected.
  • In the list of ports ,look for tcp/ip with the correct ip (192 number) address of the computer.
  • when you find it,tick the box,click on apply then ok.
  • if you do not see it anywhere on the list ,you need install the software.
Let me know if you need assistance in configuring wireless connection and installation.

Says that it offline. will do everything except print


There are only 2 reason when printer says offline.

Ist. When computer does not communicate to printer and this is happen because usb cable not plugged in from printer to computer properly or its loose. If use cable already plugged in properly and try to plug the usb cable in a different port in your computer and then restart the computer. and if you are using wireless printer and wireless connection on printer is disconnected then Run the wireless printer setup again by printer disk.

if issue still persist then follow step 2.

IInd. Go to Start>>printer and devices>>here you will have your printer>>right click on it from your mouse and left click on Use this printer online

My computer says that my printer is offline and won't print but it is on and has a wireless signal.


Most times if it says offline is because of some kinda settings issue. When my printer tells me it is offline is because IP address changed that was set up in computer to connect to printer. Make sure IP in printer is same as IP in printer settings on the computer. If not just remove the printer and readd it with new IP address. Good luck.

My HP Photosmart C4580 wireless printer will print when the computer is plugged into the printer. However when disconnected it will not print and will say that the printer is offline. How do I make it...


you gotta go into the printers folder in control panel and and right click on you printer icon and then select use printer online ,just to check if you printer has been connected wirelessly properly or not insert the cd and click on add a device and then try to install your printer in the wireless network if you printer is detected then install it and complete the installation ,it means that your printer was not installed but only configured to work on the wireless network thats why you keep getting the printer offline
