If you have a DC volt meter, pull the little box out of the back of the printer, (the one that the power cord goes into), and see if you get power at the 2 terminals you see. If not, then you have to replace. The part number is 13D0300. I have a used one if interested. Or you can seach ebay and find one.

We had a power outage, now pixma Mx410 won't come on, any ideas?


Is pinter plugged into a power strip? Try plugging directly into wall. Make sure wall outlet is working correctly, try another item in plug in. Does printer have a power module or brick that is plugged into printer? That power module is there to protect your printer during a power surge, it may need to be reset. Is there a light on that brick or power module? If so, does it light up? If not, could be a bad power module. There is no such thing as "reset" button, so don't look there...It will have to be reset in a series of ways for an "external" module.
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
  4. Wait 15 seconds.
  5. If the printer uses a power module with a detachable power cord, reconnect the power cord to the power module.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  7. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  8. Check to see if the power module or the power cord has an indicator light and if it is on
For an internal module:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  3. Wait 15 seconds.
  4. Reconnect the power cord to the rear of the printer.
  5. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
  6. Check to see if the power module has an indicator light.
Not sure if this will help you..but worth a try.....

No power to LexMark x6650


If you are encountering power problems with your printer, please go through the following checklist:

  • Make sure the power cord is plugged in securely and directly to the power outlet. Power surge protectors can draw power away from the printer.
  • Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet and the back of the printer and then reconnect it.
  • Check the power supply box (if there is one) to see if it is warm or cold, as there could be a defective power supply issue.
  • If there is access to a voltmeter, test the power supply to ensure that it registering the correct amount of voltage (most Lexmark printers have a 30Volt output).
  • Make sure the correct power supply is connected to the printer.

Display not showing anything but the cord has a green light inside cube protector and red light under copier deck and lid


Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer.

Wait at least 10 sec before replugging the adapter. This will give enough time for the printer to reset itself. Also, make sure the printer is plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall and bypass any power surge protectors.

The printer will not turn on.

Solutions

1. Check the power cord or power module connections at both the printer and the power source (power outlet, power strip or surge protector).

2. Try disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord or power module to the printer.

3. Try reconnecting the power cord or power module to the power source or try a different power source.

4. Verify that the printer is connected to a power outlet that works.

5. Make sure there are no additional switches turned off, such as those on a power strip or surge protector.

6. Check the power breaker to make sure the power source is working.

If these solutions did not fix the problem, have the printer serviced. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bud09170&tmp_task=solveCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=59129

Printer will not turn on. Lexmark 7100 Series Model 4409-K01


if the printer is plugged in to the surge protector, plug in to the wall socket.. and then chek.. if it is not truning on , check if the power cord connected to the printer is warm ... OR.. if any light is glowing in the power cord..
If the power cord is warm/light is glowing in the power adapter, and the printer is not turning on. then the problem may be with the printer itself...

I have a gateway desktop computer. Recently moved


Before you actually replace the power supply, check some other things first:
1. Wall socket
2. Power strip/surge protector
3. Power cable
4. On the back of the computer, where the power cable plugs into, is the red switch set to 115? It should be 115.
5. Make sure that the power cable is not connected to a regular extension cord. Power cable must plug directly into a surge protector that is not daisy-chained to another power strip, surge protector, or normal (household) extension cord. Surge protector must be directly plugged into wall socket.

If none of the above solve the problem, open up the case and ensure that all power connections are secure. Also check ALL other components' connections. Any loose connections can cause problems for you.

If everything is secure and the problem persists, replace the power supply.
