Hp laser jet pro M118 always saying "Looking for printer".

HP Recommended
Laser jet pro M118
macOS 10.15 Catalina



Continued issues with this printer and now it does it all the time and take several attempts just to print. Always says "looking for printer"...then i have to unplug it, let it go thru it's little warm up and then attempt to try to print again....this usually works but if I try to print something else 2 minutes later it's back to "looking for printer". It is so time consuming because I have to print several times a day for my businesses. Any help would be amazing !


Thank you kindly,
