Do an eBay search for Power Cord for CanoScan 8400F. I got a brand new one there for $8 from a reliable Hong Kong Supplier. Took about a week to get it.

CanoScan8400 Suddenly Doesn't Work

I had the same problem about a year ago. The solution was to replace the power cord AND don't leave it connected to the powers source when the scanner is not in use, or it will burn out again.

If possible, try it on another computer. If the symptom is the same, then the scanner requires service.

Canon 8400f will not power up

I know this sounds stupid, but did you make sure to switch the power switch to the ON position? When the power is connected, and then you flip the power switch on, the light inside the scanner will illuminate, possibly briefly but noticeable. If that doesn't happen, then you're not getting power. Try different outlets. Re-secure power cord connection. If still no power, then I suggest to contact Canon (techsupport) for another power cable.
