Machine does not power up


The fuse is located in a little black box underneath the base of the machine, but it is not an easy job to take the box out, disassemble it, replace the fuse, and then reassemble the whole machine. I suggest you take it to a service center.

Eroor E42

E42 means there is a scanner error. Canon website suggests you turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord from the power source. Wait approximately ten minutes, plug the power cord back in and power on the machine.

If the error is not resolved, a machine service error may have occurred. Please contact your local Service Center.

Power on no boot

Ok lets try the simple stuff first:

ATX reset: sometimes the motherboard can get stuck and hang, some people blame static buildup for it personally I think its just the BIOS hangs similar to the way windows does sometimes. Resolve this by removing all sources of power such as the battery and the power lead then press the power button for 30secs do this a couple of times. Plug the power lead back in then power on.

If ATX reset doesnt work try plugging a standard monitor into the laptop then power on. If there is no display just power off.

If no results appear above try removing the hard disk, there will normally be a panel on the underside of the laptop with what looks like 3 discs laid on top of each other remove this then unscrew and remove the disc. Try to power machine again. If it powers and display is shown it would suggest a faulty drive, otherwise replace drive.

Next step would be optical drive this is usually held in place by a single screw on the underside of the machine. The screw is usually identified by a disc shape whith a segment missing. Remove the screw and carefully pull the drive out, take care not to damage the bezel of the drive at this point. The bezel is removable and should it happen to come off it can be clipped back into place provided the clips have not been damaged (hence take care). Once removed try to power machine again. Results same as for hard drive, if it powers and display is shown then the drive is faulty otherwise just replace drive.

Next step is remove the memory. Remove all power again. Discharge any static by touching something earthed (a favourite is bare metal on any plumbing). On the underside of the machine there will be a panel designated this time by a rectangle that has some lines on one of the long sides. Remove this to find the RAM this will be a small card with a row of connectors along one side that will be in a socket. The RAM is held in by clips on either side, carefully pull the clips apart and the RAM should spring up as it is usually spring loaded. There will usually be two slots for RAM if there is a card in each remove both. Plug in the machine again and press the power button. If the motherboard is healthy it will usually sound 3 short beeps stating that it recognises there is no RAM / RAM fault. If you get beeps it would suggest that one or both sticks are faulty causing the machine to misbehave. Replace one stick and attempt power. If machine starts then it would suggest the remaining stick is faulty but you could try to insert second stick again to see if you can repeat the error. If machine powers correctly with both sticks in then it would suggest some of the contacts had become corroded and reseating them has made the connections good again. If there are no beeps and is still not booting correctly then it would suggest that there is another fault with machine.

Try removing the Wi-Fi card if your machine has one check under the remaining panels for a card with 2 or 3 wires connected to it (they are usually black and grey). Remove card in the same way as you removed memory. Again try to power with card removed.

If none of the above work then I would suggest that your machine has a faulty motherboard and you will need to weigh up the economy of having it replaced against putting the money towards a new machine.

Good Luck :-)

No power

One of 2 things.
Your machine power switch went bad, or the low voltage power supply.
