Hello Greg,
There is a ps to my original email:
I should have sent the printer's IPP report. It has a
printer-state-message that says: USB port busy; will retry in 30 seconds...
I think this is the source of the problem.

I have been using: sbin/rchotplug restart. This works until the port becomes
busy again. But it doesn't tell me what exactly is going on which I would
like to know.
