Canon MP280 printer plugged in and on but doesn't work!

March 5, 2013 at 07:17:28
Specs: Windows 7
The printer is not showing in the taskbar either. When I try to do maintenance on it or print something, I keep getting this message:
"The printer is offline.
Check that the printer cable is connected and the printer power is on."
When I unplug it from any of the USB ports and plug it back in, it does not ding as if I am unplugging something else and replugging it. I re-installed the USB ports and checked the port and printer drivers. It's all installed and up to date. I have a computer running Win 7, one running Win XP, and one running Ubuntu Linux. They are all doing this. What's going on here??? I need to use my printer! Please help me!!!

The printer itself is evidently faulty if it's not working on any of your computers.
Since printer repairs are almost unheard of these days, and repair would probably be very expensive anyway, it would be cheaper just to replace the printer.
