Yes, there is an internal fuse. I have a DX5000 as well which woould not turn on so I ripped it apart to check for an internal fuse as all other fuses, cables etc were fine.
I have to say it is a bummer to get to the fuse in the DX5000. You have to take out each and every part of the assembly before you can reach a fuse on the Circuit board attached to the main input.
It is a T1.25 Amp 250V ceramic fuse which I could not get hold of therefore decided to ditch the printer.
I would say it is not worth the effort, just get a new printer. Look out for deals... I got the Epson Stylus SX200 on a half price deal for just £39.99. Its better and faster then the DX2000 and this time I checked the power input. It is easy to open and access the main input circuit from the back in this one.
NOTE: If you do happen to go for ripping the thing apart then please do not touch the power circuit board with you hands even if the printer is totally disconnected as it has a capacitor on it which will discharge and give you a little shock if you happen to touch it. Good luck.

Sir, I got Epson stylus 480 printer and unfortunately in Pakistan voltage is 220v but i imported it from america where voltage is 120v so i directly turned it on and it started once on 220v and now not...


What you should have done before using your Epson stylus printer was to purchase a Voltage Converter able to convert 220 volt into 120 volt.

You probably "burned" out the printers electrical circuit because you let 220 volt directly into a device built for 120 volt.

If it is the other way around f.ex. connecting a 220 volt device into a 120 volt outlet it will not destroy the product. Only the product may not work as it is supposed to or it will be slower.

Here is a site with a voltage comparision chart, that can help you to choose a Voltage Converter for your purposes.

No power to printer


Hi Pat,

Most printers do not have an internal fuse. Most of the times its the transformer in the power cord and that must be replaced. Assuming it did not get wet and that it did not get a voltage spike from a storm it may have just overheated. If it has a special connector on it such as a three prong when going into the printer it is sometimes cheaper to replace the printer then the cord itself.
