Canon printers have quite a reputation in the local market. People are much emphasized over the electronics from Canon rather than that from any other vendor. Canon printers stay errorless for quite a while after the month of purchase. These printers sometimes come up with little problems that could be easily fixed. For instance, the problems with the canon printer drivers, canon printer offline error etc could be easily solved in a three to four step fix guide.
For solving the canon driver problems, there is a need of a fresh driver setup. It is recommended to make this setup as a backup in your computer. It could be found in the Driver and Utility Software CD from the Canon along with the product instruction manual. In other case it can be downloaded from here, the official website of canon. Before installing the new copy after download, uninstall the old version of driver already installed and reboot your computer.
Now for the canon network printer is currently offline issue, there is a lot that could make this happen. But at most of the times, the reason behind this is the wireless router IP conflict. Actually, whenever the printer demands an IP, it gets the feedback with a currently used IP of any other user. This problem could be solved easily through a network router reboot with at least a half a minute delay. With a reboot, the IP addresses are all allotted again automatically to every device connected. This may solve all the major issues causing network printer offline.
Sometimes the canon printer offline error is given due to the power issue. The canon printer consumes considerable amount of power while printing, thus, you cannot use the UPS or any other unstable power source. There is also a need of connecting the printer power cable with desired power rating accordingly with the printer.
Sometimes this canon printer gives off the waste ink error. This could be overcome by simply undergoing though the process mentioned below.
Press Menu on printer > press scan/copy > press Right Arrow> Press NVRAM > Set ABS-M level to Zero > ABS-P Level to Zero > Press Stop for exit.
This could be an easy way of bypassing that waste ink error. This error basically bugs the user after a good long run. New printers do not show such errors. Old timers can be fixed through this way many times you like.
