Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
Most USB cables are 3-6 ft. long. Longer ones tend to attenuate the signal, but that normally happens when the cable is beyond 15" or 5 meters. Did this just start happening? Try un-installing and re-installing the printer drivers. If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

The USB cable should preferably be no longer than 10 feet or 2 meters. However if that is not an option you can also check the following to help increase speed of your print jobs.
Printing is too slow
Make sure the paper type selected in the printer driver is appropriate for the type of paper loaded in the printer.
For Windows, clear all customized settings and select Text as the Quality Option from your printer driver's Main window.
For Mac OS X, clear all customized settings and select Automatic as the Mode and move the slider to Speed in the Print Settings dialog box from your printer driver's Print dialog box. See the printer driver online help for details.
Close any unnecessary applications.
If you print continuously for an extended period, the paper may temporarily stop feeding or the print head may pause for a while. This is to slow down the printing speed and prevent the printer mechanism from overheating and being damaged. If this happens, you can continue to print, but we recommend stopping and leaving the printer for about thirty minutes with the power on. (The printer does not recover with the power off.) After you restart, the printer will print at normal speed.
Uninstall the printer driver, then reinstall it. For a new driver for your printer and operating system see here.
If you try all of the methods above and cannot solve the problem, try Increasing the Print Speed (For Windows Only):
You can increase print speed by selecting certain settings in the Speed & Progress window. Click the Speed & Progress button on your printer driver's Maintenance window.
The following dialog box appears.
The table below lists the factors affecting print speed.
Print speed Faster Slower
High Speed Copies On Off
Always spool RAW datatype On Off
Page Rendering Mode On Off
Print as Bitmap On Off
