CANON PIXMA MP510 WILL NOT POWER ON

My printer has been powered off for several weeks because the black ink cartridge needs replaced. I'm trying to turn it on to replace cartridge and it will not power on. I've tried other outlets and still cannot get it to turn on.

I had a similar problem. What worked for me was to remove the power pack, which is secured by two clips. Slide a knife or similar to release the power pack. It will slide out to reveal a mini-plug with five red wires. Disconnect this.

This where it gets a bit uncertain. I plugged in the power pack and put a meter across the outputs. They seemed to be working (ie I was getting voltage). I had a quick look at the indide of the MP510 and decided there was nothing further I could do. I then reassembled everything and, just out of curiosity, pressed the power button again. And it came back to life!

I suspect that in your and my cases, the MP510 had "crashed" and I performed a hard reset by removing and then reconnecting the power pack. But who knows? Best of luck

Hurri Up's solution totally works!
No need for knifes though. Unscrew the one plug and just click it open. Very relieved!

SOURCE: Will my Canon MP510 work if Black ink cartridge installed alone?

No, Canon machines only work with all inks installed, you can get air bubbles in the printhead without inks and that would ruin the printhead.

Mp510 waste ink needs emptying


Ink Absorber Full
This may clear the ink absorber problem. There is ink absorbers located at both ends of the printer where the ink head move.
To dry the ink absorber, power up the printer and open the cover so the ink cartridges and print head will move to the middle of the printer.
Then take several sheets of absorbent tissue, fold it into a pad and place it inside the printer over the ink absorber on the far left hand side of the printer to soak up the excess ink. You may need to change the absorbent tissue a few times. Then repeat the same procedure on the right hand ink absorber.
Close the lid and the printer should now function normally.
