This is a common problem with USB printers and there are three main reasons it can occur:
To fix a print spooler issue is relatively easy and this usually solves the problem.
If you have tried to fix the print spooler as detailed above and you are still having issues, it may be the case that your USB cord or port is not working. Try a different USB cord or port and this should solve the problem.
If you've checked your USB connections, then you can sometimes solve persistent issues like this by resetting the entire print system, but please note: this loses all your printers & print settings, so it's quite drastic. Apple have a support note with the process here.

...I have bought imaging gear from a number of the discount online merchants over the years and when I decided to purchase this P800 for producing point-of-sale display material for my own business … and hopefully (maybe) a small range of art prints … I found you guys by accident when searching around. It was an immediate revelation … an Australian online retailer selling specialist gear and with a strong industry knowledge base. For me, that’s a win-win situation. And, the efficiency and frequency of update communication you’ve provided creates a strong customer bond which I’m sure will endure. So, top marks from me … the transaction has been flawless.
I’ll be placing another order for a full ink set and papers in the early new year.
Thank-you and all the best for the festive season.
