How to reconnect or reconfigure your cabling:
  • If you're using a single USB cable to connect your printer to your computer, simply disconnect and reconnect the printer cable at both ends.


  • If you're using more than one USB cable to connect your printer to your computer (because you're using a hub, for example), disconnect and reconnect each end of each cable that forms the connection between your printer and computer. If that doesn't help, connect your printer directly to your computer using a single USB cable.


  • Connect the USB cable to another USB port on your computer.


  • Use a different USB cable.
