Question about Dell Inkjet 720 Printer
My kids have Dell 720 Printer, and it won't turn on. It is plugged in to the computer through a USB cable. There does not appear to be a separate power cable. The user manuals are long gone. Does this printer get its power throught the USB cable, or should I be hunting for a power cord?
I know what you mean, actually the empty slot right above the usb connection is a slot for the power cord. See those two metal prongs in the slot above the usb spot? That's where a big block-like power cord goes...

Here is the link for the user manual; http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/PRN720/en/OM/720_English.pdf Page 11 states that there is a seperate power cord, and shows the connection port. Unfortunately there is no picture of the power cord itself, it may be a standard cord alone, or it may include a power transformer - the manual is unclear. All the contact details for dell are included in the manual, or contact them on; http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dellcare/en/contact_us?c=us&cs=19&l=en&s=dhs&~ck=mn Hope this helps :)
