Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
No power light. One day OK next switched on and no response. Lead and fuse in plug checked OK. Any idea what I could do. Nobody seems to want to try and repair printers.
The reason why no one wants to repair inkjet printers is they are cheap and it is cheaper to buy a new one.

There are a couple of fuses in that power supply. But if it is a 412 or an F12 most likely you have developed cracks in the solder connections of that particular LVPS.
I would recommend replacing the LVPS.
Roughly a 250 dollar price on that power supply.

The DFX-8500 uses a series of beeps to identify errors and error 6 relates to carriage load measurement. This error causes an auto power off after 12 seconds.
Parts that can effect this error are:
PW Sensor - defective
CR Motor - Defective
CR Encoder sensor - defective
Hope this helps

Is it possible that the cord came unplugged from the transformer itself instead of the printer or wall plug?
A power outage shouldn't affect it, but a power surge can. Please use surge protection circuits on your computer equipment. It's so much cheaper than repairing or replacing them.
Take it from someone who learned the hard way....
You can try a printer reset. Turn the printer off, unplug the power and data cables from the machine. Wait at least ten minutes to allow the printer cache to be purged.(Canon's recommendation)
Then plug back in and turn on.
I hope this works for you! Good luck!

SOURCE: Do I need a new print head?
5 flashes indicates a faulty printhead or possibly a problem with the p/head contacts. Try removing the head which is easier if you take the cartridges out first(no tools required) and re-seat it having checked the contacts for dirt.
If that doesn't work it may be that the waste ink tank is full. Try this ...
Canon S9000, S300, S400, i550, i560, i850, i860, i865, i9100, i9950, PIXMA iP3000 above,
1. Turn off printer
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal.
