    Specs:
    MacBook
    What monitor are you using?
    Are the ports USB 1.1 or 2.0?
    It's possible that the printer is drawing too much power from the computer and overloading it to the point where the monitor's ports won't get enough 'juice' to work.
    You would have to get a powered USB hub to compensate for this, if that is the case.

    Always best to connect to either the computer or second best a mains powered USB hub. Using the monitor USB ports can be very much hit and miss.
