My Epson DX7400 won't turn on

My printer is just out of guarantee and won't turn on. I've tried another power lead but it makes no difference.

Funnily enough Ive had a similar problem with another Epson printer recently. I removed the power input unit - involves a bit of dismantling and replaced the on-board fuse. This was a quick blow 2.2 Amp one if I remember correctly. However, the fuse is capped at both ends and rests on the circuit board wire soldered to it. Not a task for the feint hearted! The replacement worked for about a week and then blew the fuse again. Obviously other components on the board were duff - printer scrapped.
Then the customer mentioned it had got damp through an open window and that he'd only had the printer three years ... tum te tum!

    Hi. I know it is now three years since your post but if you are still around could you tell me what model of Epson printer had the fuse that was replaceable. I've trying to find out if the Epson D120 has such na fuse as two of my printers have died due, I suspect, moisture in the printheads. Maybe I can ressurect them by replacing the fuses. Thanks (

It doesn't turn on

First try connecting the printer to a different outlet. If possible, get a replacement power cord and test if the printer will turn on.

If these steps don't help, the power supply or another internal component has failed. If the printer is under warranty, contact Epson. Otherwise, decide if it is worth attempting to locate and fix the problem. (If you take it to an Epson service center, you'll have at least a $50 fee just to diagnose the problem.)

I wish that I had better news for you.

Connect the power cord, rise the cover that accesses to the print-carriage, turn On the printer; when the print-carriage move to left, unplug the power cord then, manually, move the carriage until the right area where you can open the cartridges-cover and change the cartridge you need.

Apart from the fact this DX7400 problem is mis-filed under Epson Stylus C86, it seems probable the poster has sorted it by now!
