Ensure that the external device has power. (MIDI cables is not able to give power to an external device even though the other end is USB). Ensure you have all 5 pins at the MIDI end of the cable. (any that are bent or simply aren't there, the cable will need replacing).

The MIDI cable is plugged into the 'out' port on the keyboard? Also the software you are using, have you chose the right routing (input/output) options under settings?
