Question about Canon PIXMA iP4300 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Canon iP4300 is noting "offline or no power" blinking orange light 3 times then turns off

The cable seems fine, but all of a sudden the printer won't work and I get a note stating "offline or cable disconnected from computer". I've tried using different cable or switching adapter in computer but still won't connect. I press power button and printer turns on for maybe 30 seconds, blinks orange light a few times then shuts down again.

Printer doesn't respond via USB only WiFi


As my helper partner states, I quite agree but I would also use a different USB which the one you're using might be damaged, use another USB station cause maybe its also damaged. But if it states that the printer is offline...it will never print because its not selected as your active Printer. Actually you are sending the printing jobs to that printer wich is not active or recognized.

Hi Valued Star Customer

It seems like the USB host may be going into "sleep mode" and not awakening. Please contact Star Support at support@star-emea.com for documentation.

Printer not receiving jobs from computers in office..HELP!


what type of connector do you use? if its network printing then check ip address, cable, and the network card of the machine if it shows light, if its usb cable check the driver or cable.
note: make sure when you press the print buttom on the machine it doesnot show offline! if it shows offline you cannot print hit go or start to make it online.
if none of this work, reset the machine by hitting 1087 twice this will take you to maintenance mode then hit 906 then start, highlight the words that come on screen by your finger then hit start, the machine will ask you to put the main power on and off, do that and you will be fine.
Best Regards

Problem with hp officejet4315v all in one


Hi there check that the data cable hasn't fallen out if not change data cable. If still not working check that you are using the correct port within the driver .
  • Goto Printers and faxes
  • Make sure that the printer states Ready not offline
  • If states offline Right Hand click and select use printer Online
  • If not above right click and select properties
  • Once in properties select Ports from the Tab at the top of the window
  • Make sure that you are using the correct Port i.e. LPT1 or USB that the printer is connected to.
  • If you aren't change the port by clicking the appropriate one or add new port.
  • If you are on the right port try reinstalling the print drivers
I hope this helps you
Thanks J
