Question about Canon BubbleJet i560 InkJet Printer
My canon i560 on my mac mini os x tiger suddenly one fine morning had no power. All efforts--unplugging and re-plugging, using a different outlet, using a different system in a different room--failed to turn its power on! Canon tech support--on hearing the problem, and what fixes I had tried--glibly responded by saying the power unit is dead, and I'll have to take it in to their service center. But how and why did the power unit die--when the rest of my system didn't--threy're plugged in to the same surge protecter? This is crap--this the third canon to die on me in the space of a little over a year! I should add I use the printer for light occasional, mainly, text printing. My confidence in Canon is all but gone (have they now abandoned reliability--a dark suspicion!). Pity, because I was a sworn Canon fan. If anyone has any solutions--I'd be grateful.
It's possible the power supply died, however, there is a 3amp fuse on the slide in power unit that could have blown. I would check it before taking it to the recycling pile. If you mess with it be careful around capacitors, they'll hold a charge even if not connect to power for several days.
