Question about Brother HL-2040 Laser Printer
New machine, replacing one that was identical but old. I accidentally damaaged the old machine. New machine is hooked up, I checked all connections, even made sure the USB went directly into the computer (rather than hub). Using Macintosh system 10.4. The Mac will print fine on my connected Canon. I used the same connection and USB cable to hook to the HP. Still get "printer not responding." None of the idiot lights go on. The only light that goes on is "green" (as in "good"). The "test page" comes out fine. I can't think of anything else to try. It's the same printer driver as I've had - from either Brother or included in the Mac OS software. I'm using a dual (motorola) processor 2.5 G Macintosh with 2 gigs of RAM, and not having any other problems. (Over 100 gigs free space on hard disk.) Very frustrated. Thanks.
