Question about Canon PIXMA iP1500 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

IP1500 won't power on

It's plugged in, the plug it's plugged into works. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the cord. It worked fine with no problems about a week ago, and it's just been sitting there since then. I tried unplugging and replugging it, hooked it up to my laptop and restarted the laptop. I can't really think of anything else to do.

GE JVM1870SK03 vent fan, turntable and lights are out, seems to still heat food but sounds funny

Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The unit not powering on is an indication that it has a power fault.

First, remove the microwave's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. It may cool by then and might power on. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electricity entering into the unit.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then the unit is most likely having a power problem.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the microwave, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the microwave doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the machine.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

If any machine or electronics device doesn't power on, it means its having a power problem. It might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This microwave must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the microwave turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store within our vicinity.You might also find visible bad component without testing with a meter. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

No power

Pull the SD card from the top and make sure you have the appropriate update from the cruz website on it. Follow flash instructions.
Test the power cord with a voltmeter to see if its giving power. ****** works well too. Not really don't do that, I mean it'll work but get a tool to check it. Someone who works on cars or their house will probably have one.
If that doesn't work, open the back, pull the battery plug and then plug it back in. If it still doesn't turn on you're probably beat. You can look further into digging in and removing other internal parts to attempt to reset whatever it is that is wrong but most likely it's an issue along the power line on the way in or the jack itself. If it had a surge it'll be something further that is fried. In most cases you're buying a new one.
Keep an eye out for the t301 its much more capable and prices drop to about $70 during sales. The touch screen is real (capacative) which is a major improvement and you have a lot more space to download stuff.

All of a sudden the MP560 won't turn on. The outlet is working but the printer doesn't respond to the ON button. I've checked the power cord it seems to be ok, the cord hasn't moved or been...

This may be a longshot, but many electronic devices like TVs, dryers with electronic computerized controls, entertainment systems like the Wii, and other devices sometimes get "confused" and won't turn on, turn off, or otherwise work properly, perhaps due to a small power surge in your AC line.

I've found that one of the first things to try when it appears to be a failure of the electronics and not a mechanical issue is to unplug the device at the wall (to make sure that any power adapter is also unplugged) and wait about 10 minutes for any residual electric charge to dissipate. Then plug the device back in and give it a try. This has worked with a television, a Wii console, an electric clothes dryer, and some other devices that I thought had died for good. This may explain why sometimes a device is taken to a repair shop and it works fine.

There are, of course, other reasons that the unit won't turn on, but I would try this first before looking for other reasons for the problem.

Take out the AC power jack and then remove the laptop battery. Plug AC power back in and see if the laptop will turn on. If it turns on let it boot the operating system and then shut down as normal, remove the power cord and reinsert the battery and again see if it will switch on. If it does then there has been a glitch with the battery. If it doesn't then there is a problem with the battery.

If the laptop won't switch on either with or without the battery then there is a possibility that the motherboard has developed a problem.

Good luck.

No power from my laptop .... cord has power but computer wont power up. No lights coming on computer or anything. Cord has blue light on .

Can you try to remove the battery then plug in the power cord then try to power on the computer, if it still doesn't work, call you manufacturer as you might be having a hardware issue.
The power supply may not be working on this instance.

WD Notebook Hard disk power problem

The power cord connects to a little circuit board inside the case, and the hard drive itself connects to the board. I would think that if you damaged anything it would be the board but not the drive. You could try taking the drive out of the case and connecting it directly to your computer (or you could get a computer shop or computer geek friend to do it if you don't feel up to it). If the drive itself isn't damaged you will be able to read your data.

Palm Tungsten E2 won't work after power cord is removed.

The traditional steps for resetting charging problems are:
1) press reset /while/ the power cord is plugged in
2) unplugging the battery for about 30 seconds, then plugging it back in

You have done #2, but I do not know if you have done #1. Try it, then try to recharge again. If that fails then you probably need a new battery. I have found them on eBay before.
