You could try to use static ip to remove possible problems with dns retrieving: 

  • Set the machine to static ip (Menu -> Network -> WLAN -> Boot Method -> Static).
  • Check the ip number on the machine (Menu -> Network -> WLAN -> IP address)
  • On your PC, go to Control Panel -> Printers
  • Right-click printer, choose Properties
  • Choose Ports and click "Add Port"
  • Double-click on Standard TCP/IP, follow the guide and type in your IP number earlier retrieved.
  • Save settings, press OK and the problem could be solved (if it was due to dns problems). 
Also, if it works, you can change the network settings for scanner driver to go to ip address too instead of dns, even if it isn't a problem right now, it could later be.

SOURCE: printer not working wireless (printer offline)

Phoned Canon with the same problem. Everytime I installed the printer it would work until I rebooted. Canon advised that 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

POwer botton flashing light.. cant print and the status is offline.. how can i fix this problem pls help


The flashing light is because the printer will not print if it's offline. Be sure the printer is connected to the Internet. It may be offline because you have tried to print too many documents. If that's the case, you will need to delete all the documents that have been sent to the printer and haven't printed. Don't delete the actual document from your computer, but from the print queue. Hope this helps.
