Question about Canon PIXMA MP510 All-In-One InkJet Printer
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

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.
