Does the printer say it is off line or does Windows say the printer is off line? Is this a network printer or USB printer plugged into the computer? Is the printer plugged in and turned on? What printer?
Don't be so stingy with the information.

Is the printer turned on? What, besides the power outlet, is the printer connected to? Is the power cord plugged in?

Likely

Yes everything is hooked up ..... power cord & USB CORD....I did some rewiring on my computer... so I may have left out something.... I dis- connected fax from computer and dropped that service with my provider so I no longer have telephone cable hooked up.

I have the same printer as well and am experiencing the same problem. I think the problem has to do a conflict between windows 7 64 and potentially settings on my Netgear WNDR3400 Wireless N router , configured for WPA-PSK security. Not only does it affect wireless, but also USB printers directly connected to my laptop. The reason I make this claim is because I can go to other locations such as the library, hook up my portable Canon i80 printer and print with no problem. I've also noticed that shutting down at home is also much slower.

I doubt that the WiFi would affect a UBS printer that is plugged directly into the computer (MAYBE one that is on another computer and shared). Try going to Deices and Printers and right click on the printer and select 'Troubleshoot' and see what it says. I assume you have the printer's drivers installed and installed them before you plugged in the printer the first time. If not, right click on it and delete or uninstall there, install the drivers supplied, and reinstall the printer.
