BIOS settings for the parallel port?  If I have mine set to auto,
various distros of Linux don't notice the port, but if I manually pick
IRQs for it, things are fine.  Likewise, the modes for using the port,
EPP, ECP, etc., might need to be manually set to suit the printer.

An obvious thing that springs to mind if the printer was working, then
wasn't, is the condition of the cable?  If you've moved anything and
it's a bit dodgy, that could be the root cause of problems.
