    I open the hp 1170 to find the power source but I don't have schematics. Surprising to me when I open the printer and push the on and off button the printer worked for a short time and I turn it off but want turn back on could it be the switch or power supply over heating.

    My HP 1170 is doing the same thing - I went to use it Sunday and it wouldn't come on. Unplugged it and moved it to a different room; comes on, says it's initializing, reads '1 copy / 100%', sits there for a few seconds then shuts off.
    When it's working properly, the fan starts and you turn it on with the power button. With this situation, when it comes on for those few seconds, the on/off button doesn't work. This happened several months ago and I tried an outlet in another room (per HP's suggestion - they said it's probably low power in the outlet) then brought it back to the office and it miraculously started working again. I just tried several outlets outside of the office and it won't stay on in any outlet now. Sighhhhhhh...any other suggestions?

Hp labtop is plugged in but won't stay on. laptop come on for about a second then turns off. I replaced the power cord but that did not work.

The most likely cause of such a problem would be the processor. You should either check it or have it checked....
