Pixma TS5120 won't print unless I turn the printer off and on again

Every. Single. Time.

If the computer has been on a while and I've been printing things, I have little issues with this. But I can never get anything to print on the first try. What is going on? It doesn't seem to matter what device I'm trying to print from, either.

Thank you for your help. The printer already had those settings though…so it hasn’t helped anything so far. It seems like a connection problem but I can’t understand it. Anytime I want to print something if I just turned on the computer, it goes to the printing page and doesn’t load. After I turn off the printer and turn it on again, I can try printing again and it will then give me the options for the media type and paper source so I know it will print. But if I just turned on the computer, it’s like it just won’t make the connection to the printer right away and waiting doesn’t help. Without fail I have to restart the printer. Every. Single. Time. It doesn’t even matter if the printer has been off and I’m just starting it at the same time as the computer. (We typically leave the printer on, but either way we have to restart it.)
