Sometimes it maybe as simple as your cable not correctly attached or a simple error coming from a paper-jam.
However a printer appearing as “Offline” error can also be down to problems with your printer driver or software. This can depend on the age of your printer or when you have or haven’t installed updates.
This printer offline to online troubleshooting can be used with all types of printers including Brother, Canon, Epson, HP and plenty more.
How can I make my offline printer show as online again?
Follow each step to ensure you aren’t missing any items to fix your printer from offline to online. canon printer says offline
Physical Printer and Cable Checks
Check both ends of the USB cable are firmly inserted. If the printer is networked then make sure the Ethernet cable is firmly inserted. If the printer is wireless check your internet connection or make sure it’s connected to your router. canon printer says offline
If you’re connected by cable try using the end of the printer cable in multiple ports or sockets on your device.
Try using a different cable to make sure the fault is not with the cable alone. If you’re on a network or wireless device a simple check would be to attach a cable to your computer/or device to make sure your printer is working. Therefore the fault could be with your network connection.canon printer says offline
