Docucolor 12 Power problem

Why does my docucolor has no power at all? Also, why does the docucolor 12 have waste containers for the developer and toner and the docucolor 2045 on has it for the toner?

    It is a docucolor 12. Does the trip switch say 20amp? I see a black
    switch at the bottom left corner. Yes, this works because I get a
    reading using my voltage meter going to the boards. Exactly, where is
    the power supply box? I would like to check to see if it works?

    By the way, I would like to know why they work different, if you don't
    mind. From what I understand, the docucolor 2045 does not have a waste
    container for the developer is because it has 4 different print
    cartridge that can be recycled and the docucolor 12 has one. If you use
    one, then the toner gets mixed and needs to be replaced much more
    often. Is this right?

    Thank you!

Check the fuse in the plug, 13 amp, the trip switch on the back of the machine, if not then its probably a power supply problem on the machine. you dont actually state the docucolour which has this problem.
Also as for the waste containers, why do you want to know about something that is a given. The answer is they work differently, if you really want to know about the inside workings i will tell you but you will be bored

    The power supplys are at the bottom at the rear of the machine. the Low voltage is on the right hand side as you look at it from behind. The AC power supply is on the left. If the power saver light is on when you switch the machine on it is the Low voltage. It is very very rare to have an AC power supply problem, not that it hasn't been done i suppose. Check the voltage that is going into the low voltage ps and see if anything is coming out. If there is nothing going into it then it is the ac ps.

    The DC12 and 2045 are built entirely differnetly. One is designed for speed and production. You have 4 seperate drums sitting inside the Developer housings. This means that the drive for both the drive and developer are in line for each colour. This also means that the waste for each is in the same line for each colour. The waste container at the back is an accumulation of developer and toner waste. On a dc12 these drives are completely seperate, and the waste for the developer just happens to run to the front of the machine.

SOURCE: Docucolor 12

The 2045 has a toner and Dev collection as dev ages ist looses its ability to charge and discharge and is then deposited into what is called the toner waste container. It has a different name but serves the same purpouse. TO answer the Question on the no power somemore info is needed. When you turn on the DC12 can you hear the fans run? do your hear any other noises when you turn your unit on??

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?

Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

Chances are that you didn't lock down the scanner when you moved the unit. You can attempt to open the unit and move the scanner bar manually to reset it. HPs are very difficult beasts when it comes to their power up check out. It must be fully functional...including all work in most cases. Good luck.
