Printer says it is not connected with my mac

My printer is so unpredictable, and it shouldn't be. It says it is offline sometimes and it wont print no matter how many times i turn it off and turn it back on, restart my computer, etc. I print through wifi because i have a cannon MG5495 series and it is so frustrating needing to print something out one day for a class and it not work, but just magically it will start working the next day or day after. Any ideas as to why this might be happening or what I can do to fix this? I did not pay this much money for printer for it to only work sometimes. please please please help me!

Re: Printer says it is not connected with my mac

I have just installed my new Canon TS6050


It was simple. Everything went as planned.


Only now, my Mac is being told the pjrinter is not connected. It shows me the printer, it is set as defauilt, but still won't print.


Mac OS 10.9.5
