The problem can be sorted out well by changing the USB cable that you use. I hoe the cable is not proper or may have some issue with it. Try to use other cable that may definitely help you out well for sorting the problem. I hope the printer may work well then. Also there is a possibility that the cable is not of good quality or is worn out.
