I have a savin clp 128 color printer that is networked.  It has worked fine for 5 years.  Now, it loses connection from the network.  I can ping the printer ip and then about a half hour later it can't be pinged.  When I turn the power off and on everything works and then about half hour or more later it stops communicating.  The guy from the company we bought it from came and hooked up a laptop to it and updated the firmware and said he was able to continually ping the network card.  He could not find the problem.  Any ideas?

sounds like the network card is going bad. Unless they sit there for a half hour or so and keep a ping going he wont see it has any issues. I would ask him to put in a new network card.

Sounds like a faulty jet direct (NIC on printer) or the switch port its plugged into is faulty.

NRhode has a good point i would try to move it to a new switch port as well just to be 100% sure.

would changing the ip address do anything?  Could there be a conflict?

It is possible there could be a conflict...best way to tell that is to just take the printer offline and keep pinging the IP address. If you still get a response then ya there is something else using that IP. or just change it to something you know is free, its a process of elimination.

Sometimes Disabling SNMP in the port settings will help with this.
