    i have the exact problem - i've tried reconnecting the USB cable and have tried different ports - but all with the same outcome - still offline. I'm starting to think it may just be the cable???

First step I would try is; unplug printer usb cable, then power down printer, reconnect usb cable to printer, power printer back on. If all this fails then lets try one other possible fix. Go to start select RUN & type services.msc, ok now you should have a services window that popped up. On the right hand side locate "Printer Spool" and right click on it, then select "Restart". this should refresh your printer spool. Hope this was helpful.

I tried all of the above and still couldnt get it to work. New cable, different ports, restarting.... I have a canon pixma iP1500 already installed, and Im wondering if that will need to be removed before i can proceed with the MP160.

Error message - printer offline

Most recent printers want software installed first, please use your CD or go to http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=238&modelid=15601#DownloadDetailAct to get the software and driver for your operating system. During the installation it usually asks you to plug in the usb for detection. Give that a try.

My Cannon MP160 computer scans ok, but when i try to print it says error:  printer is offline

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

My MP160 will only print documents, not web pages (is offline)

Click File Print or CTRL+P and verify the correct printer is selected.
