Did you check whether there was a new configuration file with a
different format than the old one?  A possibility.

At one point I had a similar problem after an update, for an HP
printer. The HP drivers would not recognize it.  I searched for the
model name on the web with linux and found a linux printer project
whose name I can't remember, but that had lots of alternate drivers.
When I installed that it brought up the specific model and printing
started working again.  Might be worth a try.

What about disconnecting the printer, rebooting with it disconnected so
it is not found.  Then shut down, reconnect the printer, and start
again.  It may clean out a configuration left somewhere and the
hardware discovery could put in the right configuration.
