My printer keeps saying it's offline what could be wrong?

Canon is a Japanese brand that has spread its wings all over the world now. It is recognized for the manufacturing of cameras, camcorders, steppers, photocopiers, & medical equipment.

Similar to any hardware, even a printer has faults and problems while interacting with a different system. One of these issues is that it shows "Canon Printer Offline" even when it is properly connected.

Solution's of Canon Printer Offline:-

Solution 1: Restart the Printer Spooler service.

Solution 2: Disable Use Printer Offline feature of your Canon printer.

Solution 3: Reinstall your Canon printer software.


If, you are getting a Canon Printer Offline error to feel free Chat with Technician. If you are using a canon printer, it is possible that your printer cannot print correctly and then you find that its status is offline.

Printer is offline and will not print. Restarting does not help.

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.
