You did not specify if printer was formerly working, the model # of the printer, or what version of Windows you are using. All this information is needed for successful troubleshooting. However, the below is general resolution for your problem:
"Offline" means your computer cannot "see" the printer as connected and powered on.
In order of things to try:
1. Turn printer OFF. Unplug USB cord from printer (or other end from computer). Wait at least 30 seconds. Plug USB cord back in. Turn printer back on. Does it still show as "offline" under Start --> Devices & Printers?
2. Try replacing the USB cord (yes, they can and do go bad).
3. Turn printer off. Unplug USB cord.
Under Windows Start --> Printers and Devices:
RIGHT click the Konica printer icon. Select "uninstall" (or "remove device") and follow through until printer is successfully UNinstalled. If there is other Konica software installed, remove it also (via Start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs -or- Programs & Features).
4. Reboot your computer. Follow manufacturer printer installation procedure, step-by-step (consult mfr website if you do not have a printed installation manual). Do not plug in USB cord or turn on printer until instructed to do so.
If all else fails:
Ignore any manufacturer installation instructions.
Do # 3 only above.
Plug in printer and connect it to computer.
Let Windows try to automatically install it (in most cases, Windows can install the "basic" print drivers, which are smaller and sometimes more stable than the fancy drivers and excess software the manufacturer wants you to install).
If still no go, you probably have a dying or dead printer. Consult manufacturer website for help.
Is the Pixma connected to a wireless router (or connected by USB or ethernet cable)? It could be that the router connection failed. Try restarting the router, or repeat wireless connection on the Pixma.
First unplug your printer from the computer then uninstall you installed driver . After that plug it to the computer and install driver again. Then restrat your computer after successfully instalation. If still now ggive the problem then install driver from the below link and install it. http://download.cnet.com/Brother-MFC-240C-USB/3000-2110_4-99329.html
hopefully it will be work. Other wise go to the servicing center.
Possible solutions: * Try restarting your PC. * Hook-up the USB connector to the original USB port... If unplugged. * When you print choose the latest printer detected... copy 1 or copy 2 * Delete the printer and re-plug the USB port. * Defective USB cable, try other cables.
I'm assuming it's USB and it got unplugged or turned off recently. Unplug the printer's USB cable for a bit (20 seconds), then plug it back in. Most likely the computer will recognize the new hardware and begin the software install that's needed. When you look at Printer on the computer again, you'll probably see a new one, but it'll show ONLINE. Make this one your default and delete the one that shows OFFLINE
I've had this happen to me several times and the above solution works for me. Good luck.
First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel. The printer’s status should be set to “ready” If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”. If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
Clear the printer queue
Shut down the computer
Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
Turn your computer back on.
Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print. Thank you,
It shows offline if the printer is not communicating.
Initially open printers folder and right click the printer icon and check if "use offline" option is not ticked.if its ticked then un-tick it.
if everything looks fine then:
1)first try unplugging printer from main power cord for a minute and then plug back in and check after refreshing if it becomes ready.
2)other thing to do is to remove the usb cable from behind the printer and plug back in after 45 seconds.
3)it is also quite possible that the usb port or cable might have gone faulty.in that case try replacing usb cable and check.
thanks ,keep updated and accept the solution.
