Suddenly, after three plus years, we are unable to print.   Getting a message from the printer -- "Unable to open device (read failure)!"    I've spent almost three houyrs trying to figure this out.   It is a wireless connection.   I've turned power off and on.   I've deleted and re-added the printer (Canon MP610).   My only though is about a week ago we added Mountain Lion to the laptop.    Using Snow Leopard on the desktop.   Any thoughts?
