Why is My Canon MP130 Printer Offline?

I have a Canon mp 130 printer at home for over 6 months now. it used to work perfectly fine until last night and did not show any kind of malfunction over the time of its use. Yesterday while giving a print command my computer showed my printer to be offline. I checked my printer and it was on and looking just fine. I restarted the whole system and even updated the drivers but still the offline messages flashes. i could not figure out the reason for it being offline. Can anyone here suggest something to get my Canon Printer back to online?
