My Canon Pixma MX490 was working fine through January 16, 2021. It was on the same network as my Chromebook. I have used them together for several years.
Yesterday, January 18, 2021, I moved my printer across the room to its new stand. It was unplugged for less than 30 seconds. After I plugged it into the new outlet, it would not print.
It is still on the same network as my Chromebook but it will no longer print. I get several different ERROR messages -- either my Chromebook can no longer find it, or it is no longer in the drop-down list.
Why would a printer that has worked with my Chromebook for several years suddenly no longer work? I need to be able to print.
Please tell me how to connect the printer to my Chromebook. My Chromebook is a 2016 Acer.
Maybe something here will help:

I have a Pixma Canon MG3020 which after January 2021 would not print from Chromebook. I tried all of the suggestions including trying to set up my printer manually. My Acer Chromebook would not recognize the printer address or model. What I have come up with and I hope it helps all of the VERY frustrated Chromebook users that used to print from Google Cloud is this: I have an Android Smartphone and downloaded the Canon Printer Service app and the Google Drive. Anything saved in my Google Drive on Chromebook CAN be printed through my phone. HALLELUJAH!
