Error message says pixma 3220 is offline, but then prints hours later

Trying to print from my Acer laptop using Windows 10, I get an error message that says my printer is offline, but when I check, the printer is online.  In addition, the document prints several hours later.  My husband has a canon 3500 series, and I am experiencing the same problem if I try to print on his computer.  Maddening.
