Hi there. My name is***** am sorry that you are having this problem. It would be my pleasure to help. How are your printers connected to your Mac? Wirelessly? or via usb cable?

Thank you for that information. Please remove power from your wifi router, wait a few seconds and then power it back up. Wait up to two minutes for it to fully connect and assign ip addresses. Check then to see if the printers are available to you. If they are not, please restart your computer and the printers and try again. Please let me know the results.

Neither worked. Perhaps the printer wore out? It's at least 6 or 7 years old.
