Question about Epson Stylus Photo R800 InkJet Printer
The connection between the power on button and the power supply is a tenuous one at best. It is similar to modern PCs where pressing the power button doesn't turn the power off but instead tells the CPU to turn the power off. Obviously, if the CPU is hung up or in a snit, it can't or won't do it.
Anyway, one time I hit the button too many times, trying to power the printer off, about a year ago and it did, but after that it would not turn the power back on. I let the printer stand around with the power cord and the USB cable unplugged for about a month, waiting to save up money for a replacement R800. I got ready to order the new printer and, in frustration, plugged the power cord and USB cord back in and pressed the power button firmly (almost enough to break the button, also in frustration) and, ZAP, the printer came on and has worked since then. I think possibly the power supply "got confused" somehow.
So I guess that time heals all wounds.
