not trying to be rude, but can you detail what you have tried?

Ie power off the printer and back on,
unplug the usb port ?
try a new usb cable?
reboot the computer?
uninstall and resinstall the printer?
uninstall, remove all USB connection references to the printer, reboot, then reinstall the printer?\

Uninstall/Reinstall USB driver?

by oldbaritone In reply to Printer connection proble ...

if you've tried everything markp24 suggested, also try deleting the "USB Root Hub"(s) from the device manager and let them reinstall - if you're not booting from a thumb drive.

and if all of these "generic" solutions haven't helped, we would need technical details of what you're doing - OS and version, Printer make and model, etc.
