'Unable to send data to printer' on Mac . Why?

HP Recommended
HO Laserjet 1320
macOS 10.12 Sierra

Out of nowhere, I got this message when trying to print, using a ethernet network to print from one Mac to another,

'Unable to send data to printer'

Things had been working for years.  I tried the usual restarts, changing USB cord, etc.

It turned out the sending computer had spontaneously unchecked the "printer sharing" box in the System Preferences

in the Sharing category.

Once I rechecked that box, everything worked as usual.
