Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Does the adapter work?

When I plug the adapter into the outlet, the green light at the end of it that goes into the printer turns on, then when I actually plug it into the printer, the green light goes off, and the printer never turns on. Is the problem the adapter, or the printer? Its a brand new Kodak 5300. Never been used.

My printer won't turn on. I have tried turning everything off and back on but it still won't turn on.


There is only one way to find out if it is an issue with the printer or the Power cord or Power Adapter.

Normally every HP printer has 2 parts. One cord connects the Printer to an Adapter. the Adapter cord then connects to the Wall outlet.

Now that you have connected the printer to working outlet, Check after 10-15 mins if the Adapter ( black box ) is warm or cold. If the Adapter is warm and the green LED light on adapter is glowing, then it could an issue with the Cord or the Printer.

Try with another Adapter or power cord to diagnose.

For Other brand printers, there should be a power adapter ( black box ) and it should be warm when connected to wall outlet, if it is not warm then it is defective power adapter that you need to replaced. Else it is a problem with printer mechanism.

I have a HP Deskjet D1560, and with the power cord plugged into a working outlet (I checked), the printer won't turn on. Is it just old? Is something wrong with the power cord or the printer?

The printer is plugged in but does not turn on. The green light on the AC adaptor is on. I have tried a friend's AC adaptor and it did not work either.


I think it would be wrong to suspect a problem with the adapter wire if the same problem occurs with two adapters. Do both adapters work with your friends printer? If so one would suspect that the plug port on your printer is defective.

This is the advice from the manual:

Power button is not lit

1 Disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet, and then from the printer.

2 Plug the cord all the way into the power supply port on the printer. make sure it is well seated

3 Plug the cord into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using.

4 If the Power button light is not on, press Power.


If this does not correct the problem and it is a new purchase I would consider returning it to the vendor. Otherwise you may need to have a technician Tto investigate and confirn that power is reaching the printerre and the problem lis elesewhere with a switch or posisbly you need to replace the power connector port on the printer.

No power


Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Leave the power cord attached to it with the other end plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge device or power strip. There should be a green LED light on around the adapter's contacts. If LED is off, properly secure the power cord. If that doesn't help, either the power adapter or the power cord is the problem. If LED is on, plug it in the correct position back in the printer and properly secure it. If printer won't automatically power on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, the printer itself is the problem. I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem.

Printer is dead


Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Leave the other end of the power cord attached to the power outlet. Bypass any surge device or power strip, plug the power cord straight to the power outlet in the wall. Properly secure the power cord in the power adapter. There should be green LED light on on the power adapter. Plug the power adapter back in the printer. Make sure it's plugged in securely and in the correct position. If it won't power on automatically, press the power button. If that doesn't help, it may be a hardware problem. If that's the case, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem.

Printer will not become ready.


Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Make sure the other end of the power cord is plugged in straight to the power outlet in the wall, bypass any surge device or power strip as it may cause power loss. If you check around the silver contacts on the power adapter, there should be a green LED light on. If not, that's the cause of the problem. If it's on, plug it back in the printer in the right position and properly secure it. If it won't power on automatically, press the power button. If problem persists, the printer itself is the problem. If these are the cases, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem.

Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Leave power cord attached to the power adapter and the other end of the power cord plugged in straight to a known working wall power outlet, bypass any surge device or power strips. There should be green LED light on around the power adapter's silver contacts. If none, make sure the power cord is properly secured. If that doesn't help, that's the main problem. If LED light is on, plug it back in the printer in the right position and properly secure it in. If printer won't automatically power on, press the power button. If that won't help at all, the printer itself is the problem. I hope I can assist you more on this.

Hp deskjet 6540 power adapter turns on but printer doesn't


This printer have a problem on HP circuit board. Usually its grounded due to ink waste, or not using it like what you said it took about three months. Here is a tip if your printer HP is still under warranty then you can send or contact to HP Center or the one you buy from it. To be sure that your printer is working back normally.
Good luck!
