My [purchased in Australia] printer switches itself off as soon as I turn it on. It stays on for less than a second and then won't even do that. It worked fine the last time I used it here in the UK. I have alrteady bought a new power cable but that hasn't worked. Can anyone offer me any suggestioins?Many thanks

Did you get it working Jason? My MP610 did the same thing to me this morning... I went through all the rigmarole of moving it, testing it with different power cords and etc... with no success. I left it unplugged completely, tried it again this afternoon and it works. Well, it turned on, copied a piece of paper, I was able to access the ink cartridges and switched it on and off again twice and it worked. Hoping it will stay that way. I don't know if it happened because I put a CF card in to slot - will try card in another reader first and see what happens... I would be interested to hear what happened with yours, Jason.Cheers, Vicki 23rd April 2012
Common problem with this particular Printer is a Bad Power Supply,needs to be replaced,its nothing related to the cleaning you did. you have Order a new power supply Board,open the back cover of printer and Install it.
If all the LEDs then try to turn off the power switch, wait a few seconds, and then turn it back on. If all the LEDs are still blinking, press Go and Job Cancel buttons together and let me know what LEDs stay on.
Unplug the power to the printer before the power comes back on to avoid any damage due to surges when the power is back. After the router is back on and working. Plug your printer back. Then press the blue button for 10 seconds so that the setup page is printed. Your printer is now back on.
