Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No power getting to printer

I had the power cord tested. There is current (power) going through the cord. The printer won't turn on. What now? We have tried using a different outlet; holding down the on/off button for 10 sec.; I have been online trying to find troubleshooting info in owner's manual. No luck. Is there a fuse or something inside the printer itself?

    No power also... used the cord on other machine and it works fine.... the power failure is from inside the machine....Is there a fuse of some sort? I did open it up and find that there seemed to be one hard wired into the board but I could not locate anything else. Please help =)

    I have the exact same problem with a refurb. canon mp780 at 2yrs of age

    disappointing when all the 780 seem to have the same problems....

  • RSHE Feb 22, 2009

    I have the same problem with a three year old Pixma 780. The power outage was preceded by a message "wrong cartridge" that flashed on the LCD until the machine dyed althogether. I have been using non brand name cartridges for a few years now. Is it possible the machine is programmed to rebel eventually at such an insult? The only other possible precipitating event was a bad USP outlet on my Dell Dimnension 9150, that will requiore a complete uninstall to correct.

    Sonmebody out there in Canon land, give us a clue!

This is due to the Power supply depending what country you are in i can offer you the part number but you will only be able to buy this part from a canon service company like myself, but im in the uk.

If the power supply does work work it will be down to the main board. if you had a service engineer out he would test the power supply to see if it was working to work out what part he needs.

power supply: HY7-2921-000

hope this helps

Pixma ip1600 won't turn on. No power cord just a cord from printer to computer. I unpluged the entire system and waited 15 minutes and it still won't power up. Any suggestions?


You need the power cord which has a polarized plug on one end. The other end (a figure 8 like shape) will fit into the printer. See http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0900005347/01/ip1600esi_us.pdf . Amazon and other sites have replacement power cords for Canon inkjets and inkjet multifunction printers. One source: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-ip1600-ip6600d-ip6700d-Printer/dp/B003XT2LKC .

I hope this helps.

No power


If it is not getting any power at all, only one of three things: cord is fried/dead; could be the outlet, try something else in the same socket; or, the board in the printer is dead.
1. Press the POWER button to power on the printer The device has a <POWER> button.
Connect the power cord from the printer to the electrical source.
Press the <POWER> button.
Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting a print request or completing installation.

2. Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source
  • Disconnect the AC Power Adapter or power cord from both the device and the electrical source.
  • Then reconnect it.
  • If you are still unable to obtain power to the device, try another power outlet.
  • If possible, try connecting power directly to a wall outlet (as opposed to using a surge protector or power strip...just as a troubleshooting measure).
3. Disconnect and reconnect the electrical cord to ensure a secure connection 4. The iP6000D may require repair
For toll-free technical support, please call 1 (800) 828-4040 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. - 12:00 midnight. EST, Saturday 10:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m., excluding holidays).
5. Try a different electrical source / outlet

this will surely fix your problem..

I cannot get my Lexmark 5600-6500 to turn on


Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer.

Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the power cord into the power outlet in the wall (bypass any power strip) and the power adapter into the printer. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

My printer won't turn on. I have tried turning everything off and back on but it still won't turn on.


There is only one way to find out if it is an issue with the printer or the Power cord or Power Adapter.

Normally every HP printer has 2 parts. One cord connects the Printer to an Adapter. the Adapter cord then connects to the Wall outlet.

Now that you have connected the printer to working outlet, Check after 10-15 mins if the Adapter ( black box ) is warm or cold. If the Adapter is warm and the green LED light on adapter is glowing, then it could an issue with the Cord or the Printer.

Try with another Adapter or power cord to diagnose.

For Other brand printers, there should be a power adapter ( black box ) and it should be warm when connected to wall outlet, if it is not warm then it is defective power adapter that you need to replaced. Else it is a problem with printer mechanism.

Sony vaio pcv 2244 wont turn on. after a while it will attempt to turn on but no luck.


Hello,

This is power problem, i advice you change the outlet you are trying to plug your printer to see if it will power up, it that did not solve the problem, then you will need to change the power cord to that printer because it could be that the power cord is malfunctioning and not supplying full current to power the printer, so i suggest you change the printer power cord to test another power and see if it will power up.

Take care.

HP 2610 won't turn on. Power cord problem?


If there is no power at all test a different power cord. If there is a power adapter in the middle you can test DC voltage on power adapter.

Sometimes the power socket on the printer is bad, in that case you need repair service.

Test also the printer on a different socket.

No power


probably you already checked the following:

changed power cord
changed power source/outlet
checked for any obstructions inside the unit

check your warranty status (starts from the date of purchase)
no user-serviceable parts in there, unit is service/replacement bound

***
tip : having it repaired costs more than buying a new one
