Connect the device to a different usb port. Download the newest software/drivers from the Belkin web site. Remove the old software and install the newest downloaded version. Please supply the error.

Don't know how to connect HL-2040 printer to laptop.

If the printer does not have a USB port and the computer does not have a parallel port then you will need to get a USB to Parallel print adapter. One end is USB to plug into the computer and the other end has a standard parallel port to plug into the printer. Install instructions will come with the adapter. Try any computer shop such as Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc etc.

I want to install it to my system

You need to download the driver for the HL-1430 printer for your HL 1030 model which can be found here:

this link provides information for Vista PCs - additional information can be obtained from the Brother website if required.

Once downloaded you will need to install the printer using the "Add a printer" wizard which can be found in the Control Panel (under printers).

Just connected printer via usb to macbook - it worked fine on an HP laptop. Now it only prints blank pages

The Brother HL 1030 in USB mode is supported by Windows. When using a Mac with OSxx thru USB will show that there are no communications with the printer. One solution that appears to work with Leopard is to use the alternative communications software for USB connections called "usbtb" which can be downloaded at (it's a free download).

If this does not work you will have to use a different parallel-usb adapter.

Good Luck,

USB to Parallel connection (Panasonic KX-P1121)

I would recommend buying a Printer parallel port connection (PCI to LTP1), install it into the system, and use the printer parallel cable.

I did a front feed on my Brother HL-1230 printer and now the cheque is jammed in the printer. How do I get to the drum to remove the cheque?

Open the front of the printer via the 2 tabs on the sides of the front door. Lift the toner/drum assembly out of the printer. You should be able to see the paper in the unit. Carefully pull the paper out of the unit. You may want to run a few pages through the printer to pick up any residual toner before printing another document.

Is there any way to convert an old printer cord to USB

I assume you mean the printer has the old style, wide "parallel" port i assume, and your PC uses usb.
There are adapter cables available to convert USB to parallel, but I think they are becoming harder to find. Check at your local Office supply/electronics store.
