My printer won't turn on after a power failure.

We had a power outage yesterday and now my printer won't turn on. Everything else on the surge protector is working great.  Is there a reset button on the printer?

No, there is no reset button.
disconnect the pirnter from the computer and the power cord. press and hold the power button for 30sec. connect the power cord, and connect it back to the computer.

SOURCE: my printer won't turn on after a power failure.

Most of the time if your printer will not turn on that means that the low voltage power supply is shot. If the machine is under warranty you may be able to have it replaced.


There is no reset on the printer, if you cannot get the printer replaced under warranty I recommend buying a new printer as you cannot even order the parts to fix the printer with the problems you are having.

Hope This helps!

My area recently had a power failure. Oddly, during the power failure I could still see a light coming from the Canon MG5220 printer. After power was restored, it was sometime later when I noticed that...


Unfortunately, it sounds like when the power was restored, the printer experienced a surge. If this was not plugged into a surge protector, then it's possible the switch was fried at the point of power restoration. It is important that with units such as printers, monitors, towers (computer), tv's, vcr/dvd players, almost any type of electrical appliance be plugged into a surge protector. However, even if this was true in this case - when a power shortage (outage) is experienced, it is necessary to unplug everything so that when the power is restored, nothing that is plugged in will be affected; as your printer was.
Now, you can have this fixed - either take it to a local computer repair shop; that might be able to fix it, or contact the manufacturer and inquire about sending the unit in for repair - regardless of warranty or not. If it is still under warranty, they may honor it. I am not positive they will for an accidental damage such as this, but it's worth calling them.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

There are two things. I most likely suspect that the print head wiper blade has stuck to the print head. Very common problem after a power failure.
Not sure how I didnt see your post before now. But if your still having that problem let me know, I can tell you how to fix it.

My MP600 is not turning on after my home had a power outtage. The power in my home is now on and everything else turns on except my MP600 printer.What doo i need to do to turn it back on?


Unplug the power cord for a couple minutes and when you power on again, hold the power button for a few seconds until you hear a beep. There may have been a surge with the outage that has hurt the internal power supply requiring a shop repair if the power doesn't return.

You can try to power up with the printhead out, that sometimes causes it to not power up. Otherwise that machine is fried since you can't get a replacement logic pcb anymore.

Canon PIXMA ip4500 will not turn on


Sounds like the power outage was a power surge and destroyed your printer, especially if your printer was not plugged into a power surge protector strip. Check with others in your apartment to see if they experienced the same. If so, your landlord may be responsible and can put in a claim. If your printer is still under warranty, contact Canon. Also, check to see if this item is covered by tenant insurance, if you have coverage. Hope this helps.

Power issue


Sounds like your power supply may be shot on your computer. You can get a power supply tester and check it. Not sure what to do about the printer. If you had a surge protector in between your computer and ac. Plug the computer and printer back in to the AC outlet directly and see if that helps. Hopefully only your surge protector is damaged.

Please rate, Thanks.
