I was assuming you are using a windows xp operating system. Here is what you need to do.

Click on Start
Select Printers and Faxes
See if the printer's icon is blurred or clear. If its blurred then, some of the reasons are usb cable not properly fix to both the printer and the usb slot of your computer / printer was set to use as offline / printer is turn off or has no power.

If the printer's icon is blurred, double click it.
A small window will appear, Press the Printer menu and scroll down to "Use Printer Offline"
Make sure it is uncheck.
Close the window and see if the image of the printer's icon become clear.

Good Luck!
Please do rate my answer.
Thanks

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..

Canon PIXMA MP495 InkJet Printer - Offline issues


For Vista wireless setup: Open your Control Panel. Choose Printers. In the Printers box it lists your printers. Hover over the wireless printer icon, right click, choose Run as Administrator, then choose Use Printer online. This should change the status of the printer to Ready (from Offline). Be sure you've chosen this printer as your default printer. Might have to do this on a regular basis.

I keep getting message that my Canon Printer Pixma iP3000 'is offline'. How do I get it to be 'online' so it can proceed to print the 2 documenys on the printing queue?


Hi,

Here's the steps in order for you to get your printer ONLINE and be able to print.

1. Click on your START menu
2. SETTINGS / Printers and FAXES or via COTNROL PANEL, printers and faxes
3. RIGHT click on your printer
4. Make sure "Use Printer Offline" is NOT ticked, if it is, UNtick it

Your printer should respond immediately if there are documents on queue for printing and should print it out.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck!

I have a Canon Pixma MX330 color printer. It gets used only occasionally, usually to print brochures and the like. I recently switched it to copy mode by pressing the "copy" button on the front; now it...


When you double click the Printer and Faxes icon in the Control Panel you will see the printer that your computer is currently using. See.... if the printer image is clear it is online and ready to use, if its blurred then its in offline mode and cannot be use.

To correct offline printer.. some possible reasons is on the usb cable.. check if there is no open wire along the cable...Inserting the USB connector on the other usb slot of the cpu sometimes work just wait first until it is read.

If the printer is still blurred and offline after checking the usb connection, the 2nd thing to do is check the properties of the printer if it is set to offline mode. how? Double click your printer icon. It will display the print jobs window. Click on the Printer tab and uncheck on the "Use printer Offline". Cancel all pending print jobs, close the printer window and try again to print.

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC


In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.
