    I had this problem for a MacBook Pro. Here are the steps that fixed it for me:


    1) Open Printer and Fax under Hardware in System Preferences (on the dock)



    2) Double click a printer and you will get the options 'Set default printer' and 'Restore printer system'. Choose 'Restore printer system'. Note: this will remove all printers from your printer list



    3) Click Add (+) to add a new printer. For me, the scanner appears immediately as Printer Name: Canon MX340 series, Kind: Bonjour Scanner, and the printer takes 10 seconds or so and appears with a lot of numbers after the name, Kind: canonijnetwork.



    4) Choose the printer. Change the name if you like. Select Add.



    5) The printer appeared in my list with the status 'Idle', as opposed to 'Offline', and I was able to send print jobs wirelessly immediately.



    Good luck!

I had the same problem. I just re-installed the software, making sure I followed all the instructions, what I didn't do the first time was register the printer and scanner when the prompt came up. I thought it meant register the product with the company, so I skipped that. Second time I registered (which actually was registering with the computer itself), followed thru the installation till it said done (or exit), and it all works fine now.

Printer offline wont print cant get back online


Hello,



Check the status of the printer at Control Panel. Set it to online if it's shown as offline. If this doesn't fix the problem, check whether installing the vista driver available at your printer manufacturer's website helps.

Step 1:
a. Click Start, go to Control Panel and select Hardware and Sound.
b. Click Printer.
c. If the Printer is offline, it shows "Offline" status. If the Printer is online it shows "Ready".
d. If the Printer is offline, set it to online.
e. Right-click on the printer and select "Use Printer Online".
f. The display should change to ready when the printer is set to online.

Step 2:
If still you are facing issues, then update the printer driver. This should fix the problem.

For further precise instructions, please let me know the Operating Systems installed on the Computer.

Hope this helps..

I cannot install my new pixma mx340 setup driver on mac os x 10.6.6. Get Installation failure message. Was successfull installing on 10.4


With 10.6, you just need to plug in the printer and the Mac will download the right drivers automatically.
If that fails, download and install the Canon drivers manually from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL899

My usb never reads a printer and it says its offline and never prints. canon Mp240 printer.


The printer connected to your system requires drivers to function. Drivers act as the translators between the printers and the operating system and issues with the drivers mean that problems would come up with the use of the printer. If the driver is unable to initialize and sustain communication between the printers and the OS, printer would show offline. All users having the printer showing offline issue are recommended to check the printer drivers installed on the system. if the printer drivers are found incorrect or outdated, then the drivers would have to be resolved to solve the issue. get more help to fix printer offline error .
