    This is a printer that is located in a relative's home. I can access it using TeamViewer and rest it, but that is a hassle that I would like to eliminate.

If I try to print it again I get a message that the printer is not found and it suggests a bad or disconnected cable. I have tried another cable just to be sure.
    The 3630 is a modern printer. The technique I gave you replaces HPLIP as a manager of printing. In fact, HPLIP may as well be purged from the system.
    Code:
    systemctl status ipp-usb
    should show the service as active. Another check would be to give
    Code:
    avahi-browse -rt _ipp._tcp
    Code:
    avahi-browse -rt _uscan._tcp
    This printer does have wireless capability and I wonder if I would put a wifi card in the PC if that might make it work better?
    Given a sound USB connection (cable, external USB HUB etc), I cannot see it making any dufference.

    The first command did show it as being active. However, when I went to exit out of the terminal, it said that there was a program running and closing the terminal would terminate the program???

    Pass on that.

    How about the result of the other two commands?

    Re: HP printer only works once

    The outputs of the two commands look OK to me. From my perspective ipp-usb is functioning correctly and should manage printing before and after a reboot. It shouldn't make any difference, but you could be daring and purge HPLIP.

    HPILP was purged before I installed ipp-usb. After installing, the printer worked until PC was rebooted. After reboot, printer failed to work. I then reinstalled hplip and it worked.......until rebooted.

    I really haven't any definitive answer to this. It is beginning to look like some fundamental issue. Try backing up cupsd.conf and doing
    Code:
    cp /usr/share/cups/cupsd.conf.default /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
    Code:
    systemctl restart cups
    No more ideas now. Apart from trying wireless.
