    I cannot see any light of any kind on or near the power cord.

  • calypso2 Jan 04, 2009

    I checked again inside the cabinet and a green light is on. Still unable to turn on computer. All cords have been double checked and surge protecters bypassed just in case.

    What do you think?

  • maplestkid May 11, 2010

    Have you checked on the back of the computer where the power supply connects to the wall and seen if it has a green light?

Had a similar problem, If PSU light is on and still no power its most likely the PSU is gone. More specific the main plug wiring to the system board.

If therte is a switch on the back of your pc on the power supply check to maske sure it is switched on. if that all checks out try directly connecting the cable to the wall socket if your arnt already doing that. if that doesnt workout check to see of your surge protector if you have one and see if the switch is on. if all those options fail you are going to have to go into the pc case. check the cpu power cables. they are a 4 pin connector in a square shape usually and placed next to a big fan wit a heat sink on the mother board. give that a riggle and push to make sure it is connected. plug the power back in and see if it works. if the problem still isnt solved you can if you know how too check your power button connection on the motherboard and give it a little riggle. if that all still fails then i think your power supply is no good.

    well like i said if you know how to open up th side of your pc (when it is off) and give all the power cables a quick wriggle and see if that fixes the problem.

    sometimes connections get a little corrosion or dust and it can either not get enough power to its target or completely block connections. if that doesnt work reply back

My printer won't turn on


Hi

Either the power source has issues or the power jack on printer has gone bad or printer's main board has issues.
Verify that the electrical connections and outlet are functioning:-

Unplug the power cable or power module from the electrical outlet.Unplug the power cable or power module cable from any power strips or surge suppressors.If the product uses a power module with a detachable power cord, unplug the cord from the power module, and then plug it back into the power module.Unplug the power cable or power module from the back of the product.Wait at least 30 seconds, and then plug in the power cable or power module into the electrical outlet.Plug the power cable or power module back into the product.Turn the product on.
If this doesnt help, take the printer to another room and plug it in another power source.
If this doesnt help, use a multimeter to check if adapter is giving out right voltage.
If adapter and power source are fine, then your printer has a hardware issue and needs to be repaired by Canon.


Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Try to remove the power adapter from the printer. Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall.printmastert_62.jpg

Wait for the printer to complete the current task.

OR

If the printer continues to blink after several seconds, follow these steps:
    1. Turn the printer off, and then turn it back on.
    2. If it does not turn off, unplug the power cord from the back of the printer.
    3. Unplug the power cord from the power source. Wait 30 seconds.

  • Restart the computer and the printer. Try printing again.
  • Make sure there is a direct connection from the printer to the computer. Remove scanners, switchboxes, and so on.
  • Try another cable.
  • Try connecting the printer to another computer. If the printer prints, then the problem was with the main computer, possibly a software or device conflict
