Try this:

Go to the Control Panel, then open Printers and Faxes.

If your Canon is listed remove it by right clicking and deleting.

Check Add and Remove software to see if any part of Canon’s software is listed and delete it if it is.

Leaving the printer on and connected, restart your system.

This should force Windows to recognize the printer and install a compatible driver from its library.
If successful, choose some document to print to see if the printer is now responding.

If this is also successful, then try reinstalling Canon’s software to regain access to special features not part of the Win driver.

Reformatting your drive is often not necessary and can cause the kind of problem you are experiencing; Restore works pretty good in most cases unless you picked up a really tenacious virus and couldn’t remove it any other way.

DOES ANYONE KNOWS HOW TO SOLVE MY PROBLEM?HERE IT IS..IT ALWAYS OFFLINE MY PRINTER EVERYTIME i print it,he goes offline and the print is unabale to print can anyone help me?to fix..thank you. im using HP...

when you hook up your printer to your pc via USB...can the computer detect your printer? does it prompt out any msg such as new device is installed and ready to use or did it ask you to install the printer driver?
if your pc can't detect your printer, replace the USB cable and try again.. and try to plug into a different USB port on your pc.. and if all fails, then most probably your printer main board is faulty...

Problems installing a printer

You can follow the steps below to install a resident printer driver which is part of your operating system.
NOTE: Windows should detect and automatically install devices attached via the Parallel or USB ports on the computer. You should be able to attach the printer, and the "Plug and Play" feature will install the appropriate driver.
If the driver does not automatically install, please contact your Computer vendor. The "Plug and Play" feature may be disabled within your computer.
The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.
1. Start by opening the "Printers and Faxes" window. Click on "Add Printer" on the left hand side of the screen.
2. The "Add Printer Wizard" screen will come up. Click on "Next".
3. At the "Local or Network Printer" screen, select "Local Printer" and place a check on "Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer". Click on "Next".
4. Windows should report it will check for Plug and Play hardware. It should also detect and install the appropriate resident printer driver.
5. A window will appear and tell you when the process is completed.
*NOTE: If Windows does not detect your printer automatically, you can manually install the printer. Simply select EPSON under manufacturer and select your appropriate model under PRINTERS.
6. When the printer is installed, it will ask you if you would like to print a test page. Check "Yes", then click on "Next".
7. The next screen will display the settings for the printer. Click on "Finish" to complete the installation and print the test page.
