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 have not used my pixma for several weeks and have the same problem.

    This is the second pixma with this problem, we exchanged the first one.

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.

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.
