1. Try different USB port in your computer

If that does not help

2. Try different USB cable

If even this does not help then there may be some issue with the print spooler of your home pc ..which can be solved by few steps ..but for now I think this will surely help you out

My Canon MP250 says it is offline- but there is no option of resuming the printer in the system preferences (MacBook Pro)- What other solution(s) could there be? I've tried restarting both devices

Go to System Preferences > Hardware > Print & Scan > click on add printer or scanner. Now let the OS search for printer under Default tab.
If it finds your MP250, great. Proceed with adding and delete the old MP250 printer in the list.

Every time i try to print it says the printer is offline cannon mp250 windows vista

Press your start button in the bottom left corner of your screen. In the search bar search for devices and printers. Find your printer on the list, if there is a duplicate right click the one that is not set as default and click set as default printer. If this doesn't work go here and download the driver for your printer!

Just set up cannon PIXMA MX870 printer. Cannot get it to print from wireless connection. In my printer box it says the printer is offline. It will print when I connect the printer with a cable. I use a...

I had the same problem - my printer showed that wireless LAN was enabled & my mac showed the printer but said it was offline. I went to preferences, print & fax, hit the + key to add a printer, added the canon printer again, set that printer as my default, did a print command from Word & that created a queue in the new default printer ... and it printed. Deleted the first Canon printer that was "offline." Oh, and I'm not sure if it made a difference, but before what I just described, I checked for software updates after the printer CD install process & uploaded one update.
