Power issue I experienced a power surge and then outage yesterday. Hp 950 connected to surge protector but still now it just blinks. When I can get it to turn off it just blinks but power is not really getting to the equipment to get it to reset. I have tried to turn off everything and still no luck. I cant untinstall and reinstall because now my disk drive on the PC wont work either (Gateway windows xp) Any suggestions?

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.

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.

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.

Printer power is disabled.


I would say the most likely cause of the issue is either that the printer is no longer functioning or that it is experiencing power issues. Make sure that the printer is plugged in directly to the wall and not into a surge protector or a power strip. The printer does not share power well and pulls it in large amounts - when it can't get it it throws little power fits and sometimes will not turn on at all. Try another wall outlet and see if you can get it to power on.

Also if this does not help more info like the type of printer, what you have tried, power outages, would really help to solve the issue.
