HI All:
My HP laser printer has been real cranky. Then it ran out of toner. I replaced the toner yesterday.

Now it continues to do the same thing.  Each time I send something to print, it says "printer not connected". I flip it off then on, tell the file to "pause" then "resume" during the restart, and it prints.

Do you think it's dying, or I could check to see if the printer driver is up to date? I'm on Sierra 10.12.6, and have done recent security updates which may have done something with communicating with the printer. 

P.S. Yes, it's plugged in..... :)
