When I plug in my printer the power doesn't come on.

It used to work perfectly. Could the cord be faulty, or is it the printer?

I suggest that you try another cord but if that doesn't work i'd say that one of the board in the back of the machine may have become faulty which would stop your machine powering up.
Hope it works

The power went out on my lexmark printer...cannot get it on again, What are my options?


Try another known working power cord. If that doesn't work, it's most likely an internal issue with the printer. There's not much else you can do unless you feel comfortable opening up your printer and testing the power with a voltmeter.

Hp PSC1210 All-In-One not turning on


HP makes a couple of different power cords for the PSC 1210 and their other printers. First make sure you are using the correct power cord (Amperage and voltage). Unplug the power cord (from the wall and the printer and from a power module if you have one). Leave all of the sections unplugged for at least 15 seconds to reset the power module/printer.

Next connect the power cord to the wall outlet and to the power module if present and check if the LED (if present lights up). If it doesn't try another outlet. In either case, check what the outlet voltage/amperage is at the end of the power cord with a multimeter (before you plug it into the printer). If you have a power module, then check the Amperage (it will be a DC current out).

If you are not getting the correct voltage and amperage out or the LED doesn't light (with a known good outlet), try a different power cord/module.
You can order these from HP.

If you have the correct power at the cord, plug the power cord into the printer and attempt to turn it on. (Press and release the power button.) If the printer still doesn't come on, the unit needs service. Contact HP if the printer is under warranty. Decide if it is worth fixing if it is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

Screen on front lights up but cant see numbers are functions


Try to re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
If that doesn't help, try to plug the printer to a different known working power outlet in the wall to determine if it's a faulty power outlet issue.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

My printer will power itself down and then power back up for unknown reasons?


It could be that your printer is not getting enough power to turn itself on properly. Try to re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.



If that doesn't help, try to insert your printer into a different known working power outlet in the wall. This will help us identify if it's a faulty power outlet issue.

Your printer may need to be reset. Disconnect your printer from your computer. Unload the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. While the cover is open, check for any paper jams or obstructions in the paper path and the cartridge carrier's path. If all is clear, close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it.
When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first. Close the cover. Check for any errors. If no error, reinsert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear. You can also try to reinsert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.
For your wireless connection problem, you may need to reset the printer's wireless network settings first. Please refer to How to Reset the Z1400 and Z1500 Series Network Settings.
To reconnect the printer to your wireless network, re-launch Lexmark Wireless Setup Utility on your computer.

Stopped working...is it a fuse wrapped around the power cord that could be faulty?


no that is a graphite ferrol just to cut down noise it may receive from other devices. check the voltage with a meter on the power supply. If it plugs direct into a/c from the wall, the power board is most likely bad in printer. then it's a throw away.
