CanoScan8400 Suddenly Doesn't Work

For some reason, my 8400F doesn't turn on.  I've tried it in several different outlets.  Is there a fuse that could be blown?   Any other thoughts?
It has worked perfectly for some time.

    I have the same problem. My CanoScan8400 no longer turns on.

    I have the same problem. I took the unit to Best Buy GeekSquad and the technician determined that the AC power adapter is shot. I'm on the hunt to locate a new adapter and expect to not only find a supplier but also pay less than $20. Not bad compared to the price of a new scanner.

    Same problem. Canon replaced scanner twice under warranty, but same problem again. Now power adapter dead again. Something in the scanner must be killing the power supplies. Canon won't help now that warranty gone.

    Dead in December 2008. No power up. In process of buying new power adapter.

    January 2009, haven't used it in a couple of months, now it won't turn on. Funny, I was thinking it might the power adapter even though these don't often go bad. One possible cause is that I swapped out the surge protector recently. However the scanner and the surge protectors were switched off at the time all plugging/unplugging was done.

    Scanner has just failed to power up - am assuming it's the power supply (though am getting old one tested). Any of you managed to source a new supply? If so, where and how much?

    Hi mistersquid

    I have the same problem and was in the process of looking on eBay for a new adapter / power cord. Can you post the model / make and perhaps the seller's name. It would help me to ensure I get the correct one. cheers deltic11

I had the same problem about a year ago. The solution was to replace the power cord AND don't leave it connected to the powers source when the scanner is not in use, or it will burn out again.

You can find a new power adaptor on eBay. Mine cost about $20 US.
To prevent future problems, I plugged my replacement adaptor in to a power strip that is normally powered off, which should extend the life of the shoddily-engineered CanonScan 8400F power adaptor.
There oughtta be a class action.

The first thing I would do is clean your battery connections very good. you may have to remove the plastic covers off the cable ends to get them cleaned good. Also make sure you get the connection bolts tight.

Curling Iron will not turn on.


Lots of interesting problems in the Shavers category :)
Make sure you plugged it in. (I know, seems like a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how many times this is the cause of a problem!) If it is plugged in, and it still doesn't work, try plugging in a lamp or something else by which you can make sure the outlet is operable. If the outlet works, return your iron or buy a new one. If the outlet doesn't work, try using a different one. Otherwise, you're going to have to get into fuses/circuit breakers, ets, or call an electrician. Good luck!

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...


Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

I put my memory card into the Dynex reader and nothing is happening


Move the reader to a different USB port. If that doesn't work, the reader's probably given it up. I've seen several of this brand reader die an early death, for no apparent reason.

THE T V WILL NOT POWER ON


plug the cord into the outlet. If the wall outlet doesn't work find a different one. If the tv doesn't turn on with the remote take the plastic off of the batteries in the remote. if this all doesn't work, then there's something wrong with the tv and you should return it and get a new one.

I plugged in my PS3 using an HDMI cable and i get no feedback


If you just bought the PS3 use your composite cables that came with the system. Turn the PS3 on and go to the video settings, set up video input to HDMI. After you've done that plug your HDMI back into your PS3 and try turning it on. If that works go back to video settings and change the resolution to 1080p. If that doesn't work make sure your T.V. is on the same input that the HDMI cable is plugged in. If it is and still doesn't work try switching to a different HDMI port. If switching to a different HDMI port doesn't work try a new HDMI cable. If the new HDMI cable doesn't work then there is a problem with the port on the PS3 which would require a repair.
