Try standard printer fixes - uninstall the software, restart the computer, reinstall and plug the printer in when it asks you to.

Does it work when powered on? Some LED indicator on it, perhaps some sound of moving head?
Did you try it on different USB ports?
Did you check it's USB cable with some other USB device (if any)?
Can you try it on another computer (if any around)?

On top of that, most converters don't change the frequency which can cause system instability. If I remember correctly 120V runs at 60Hz and 240V runs at 50Hz. This can cause more problems.
That being said, if the converter is on the printer, see if the printer starts up. When you push the power button, do the lights come on do you hear the head moving aroudn etc. as it warms up. If not, the problem is with the printer.
