MX922 - Scanner Won't Connect


I have a macbook  - OS Catalina 10.15.7 and my printer works fine over the network, but I'm no longer able to use the scanner. The computer recognizes the printer but not the scanner - or I should say it recongizes the scanner bc I have the ability to choose it in Scan IJ Utility and Scan IJ Network Scanner Selector EX, but I'm still unable to "connect" to the scanner.


I have deleted and reinstalled the latest drivers and such numerous times to no avail. The printer and the computer are on the same network. I subsequently updated my computer's OS to the latest version of Catalina, but again no help. I've also tried restarting and unplugging and restarting both the printer and the computer. Nothing. Not entirely sure what's going on or why this suddenly happened.


Dealing with tgime sensitive stuff here and have spent hours on this already.
