We had a power outage and the printer will not turn on. It is pluged into a surge protector and it was not running when the storm hit. We tried plugging it into another outlet, turning it on, running it from the computer, etc. Any ideas?

Re: power outage=shut down

You do not say your location- so this may not be relevant to you. If in UK - check the power cord fuse. If it is a model that relies on an external power supply- try to find anther of the same specification. Other than that presume it has died

Printer offline after power outage. Restore?

Hi, Joy.

Give these a try:

1. Right-click on your printer icon and select "Offline" to uncheck and bring it back Online again.

2. Let your printer cool down for at least 5 minutes. Power it on again.

3. If you are connected to a power surge protector, flip the switch and power the printer on to see if the printer powers on again.

4. Connect your printer to a different outlet.

5. If not a power issue, remove and reinstall the printer driver.

Hope this helps.

After power surge, canon I9900 printer will not turn on?

You can try to power up with the printhead out, that sometimes causes it to not power up. Otherwise that machine is fried since you can't get a replacement logic pcb anymore.

Canon PIXMA ip4500 will not turn on

Sounds like the power outage was a power surge and destroyed your printer, especially if your printer was not plugged into a power surge protector strip. Check with others in your apartment to see if they experienced the same. If so, your landlord may be responsible and can put in a claim. If your printer is still under warranty, contact Canon. Also, check to see if this item is covered by tenant insurance, if you have coverage. Hope this helps.

Most surge protectors only protect up to a certain limit. If you had a large surge, then i would say the power board in your printer has been zapped. I would suggest you purchase a new or second hand printer to replace yours, unless your willing to pay more than the printer is worth to fix it.
Another thought is that the problem could be the actual power point it was plugged into. Try plugging it in to another power outlet that you know is working.

Power issue

Sounds like your power supply may be shot on your computer. You can get a power supply tester and check it. Not sure what to do about the printer. If you had a surge protector in between your computer and ac. Plug the computer and printer back in to the AC outlet directly and see if that helps. Hopefully only your surge protector is damaged.

Please rate, Thanks.

Surge causing power outage

A laser printer when warming up draws far more power than your battery backup is equipped to support. Plug it into the surge protector side if you have one, or bypass the battery backup entirely.
