My Pixma MG3520 used to work with this Lenovo Chromebook--I bought it specifically bc it was Cloud Print Ready. Recently the printer has been freezing up with BK messages despite adequate ink supply and I thought that was why it wouldn't print, but it copies fine, the printer is "offline" and I can't seem to restore it. I'm pursuing help with Chrome but no luck so far, and their setup page is nonresponsive in the same way the email form at Canon is. Very frustrating, but I have to believe there's a way to reunite these star-crossed appliances. Help? Thank you!

Just to be clear, it was at the time I bought it, and it worked fine for three-plus years. Do you mean they've simply stopped supporting it? If so, is there a patch or workaround? I'm poor and need this setup for a lot of paperwork.

You can use your PIXMA MG3520 with your Chromebook. First, please press and hold the STOP button on your printer until the Alarm lamp flashes 15 times, then let go of the button.
The Network Configuration page will print. Is the SSID listed match the wireless network name that your Chromebook is connected to? If so, please take note of the IPv4 IP Address on this page.
On your Chromebook, please open the Chrome web browser. Type in the IPv4 IP Address of your MG3520 in the address bar of Chrome and press the Enter key on the keyboard.
Log in to the user interface of your MG3520.
Click Google Cloud Print Setup on left side
Click Register with Google Cloud Print

Thanks. Someone called and walked me through this process but it didn't work. I got a "Congratulations! Your printer is now connected" msg, but behind it the screen said "Communicating..." for AGES, and when I tried to print once again the printer was not connected. I think my best bet is downloading to USB and printing at the library.
