OfficeJet Pro 8730 keeps losing connection to computer - USB Conntection

HP Recommended
OfficeJet Pro 8730
Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

My printer is connected to my computer via USB. Everything was working great till a few weeks ago. Now when a have several pieces to print, the printer just stops communicating with the computer and print jobs will back up in the print queue. I have updated the drivers, uninstalled and reinstalled the printer. The only thing that seems to work is disconnecting the usb cable for a few minutes and re-plugging, annoying to have to do every 5 minutes though!
