If you've connected the printer/scanner through an USB A/B cable, it is most likely that you have used your old cable, the one you got with your old printer. The problem is either because it's from a really old one, or because it didn't have a scanner included.

To be honest, the first time this occurred, I've tried most anything and then I returned it to the shop and got a new one. The problem persisted. Then, I decided to try buying a new cord. The guy selling me the cord didn't give much chances on solving the problem this way, but, apparently, it did.

Long story short: Buy a new USB A/B cable (The one you use to connect your PC to the printer).
