Usb device has exceeded the power limit

Recently, my printer has quit working. My computer now gets a pop up on the taskbar that reads "a usb device has exceeded the power limit of its hub port." I don't understand how it could have exceeded its limits when we are only utilizing 2 of the 6 ports on the computer. Can you help me figure out how to get rid of this message and get the printer back up to tip top shape? Please and thanks.
