Hard connection.

Laptop directly to printer.

Printer is reading - PRINTER IS OFFLINE.

PIXMA MX922

Still trying to connect.... keeping getting an Admin reader - saying I need USER NAME & PASSWORD.

 

It's hardline connected. I rebooted yesterday.

 

Laptop shows the printer. Shows it as the default. Show that it's IDLE.

 

Then you go to print and it says "OffLine" -- see if printer is connected.

 

Please help.
