Re: will not turn on

Its a logic board. I had canons local authorized service center fix mine for $225. They told me every I9900 they've seen that wouldn't power up had a bad logic board.

Re: will not turn on

Very late last night our power went out for about 40 minutes. Today my i9900 will not turn on. This is the second time this happens to my i9900. The first time, I was lucky, it was still in warranty (11 months 2 weeks into it). Now its exactly 1 year 2 weeks later, and the same problem has occurred. I believe the i9900 must have a very sensitive PC board. I have the printer connected to a UPS and nothing else in my home has exhibited a problem. I tried unplugging. Connecting to a different outlet, and interestingly, when you plug the cord, you can hear a very faint click or spark noise. The last time, when Canon sent the replacement, I switched the power supply but that did not fix the problem. It seems the problem is somewhere else. Anyone has an idea on how to fix? Will it require sending to a repair center? If so, any ideas what it will cost? Thanks... cokyq

Samsung CLP620 Printer says: Not Compatible Cyan Toner after storm June 5, 2014 at 6:00 am, we had a very heavy storm with lighting for several hours, it rained lightly earlier. We turned printer off at...

It depends of what is wrong. Perhaps the storm has nothing to do with having an empty cartridge. Perhaps lightening, induced a little current in the printer or in the chip on the toner cartridge.
You only can find out, by placing another toner cartridge in its place. And don't wonder if the error still is there. But then you have to call in an service engineer, because something serious can be wrong.

At least i hope you at least remover the cartridge once, to see if all contacts on the chip (and in the printer) are still clean and shiny.
Only clean contacts with a dry cloth or a cotton swab. Vever use anything sharp.

Won't turn on.

Did you get it working Jason? My MP610 did the same thing to me this morning... I went through all the rigmarole of moving it, testing it with different power cords and etc... with no success. I left it unplugged completely, tried it again this afternoon and it works. Well, it turned on, copied a piece of paper, I was able to access the ink cartridges and switched it on and off again twice and it worked. Hoping it will stay that way.
I don't know if it happened because I put a CF card in to slot - will try card in another reader first and see what happens...
I would be interested to hear what happened with yours, Jason.Cheers, Vicki 23rd April 2012

I have the same problem error message 0x886a789e

The surge has blown up the chipset that produces the signals required for faxes.

If you have a surge protector fitted then the maker should repair or replace the printer under their terms of warranty.

If they sell you protection then they have to offer it

Try a different known working outlet..If you still don't have any lights then try a different power cord. If there is still no power then the printer is bad. With all the storms we have had going on it could be a bad main board or blown caps or onboard fuses.

Power went out for awhile due to storms, now my

You may need to reset the printer. Here are the align cartridge instructions from HP, in case you haven't seen them. Here's another link that explains, in step 7, how to do a partial reset. If that doesn't work, shut down, remove both power and data cables from your printer for a few minutes, then reconnect and restart.
Hope that proves helpful!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

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.

My scanner stopped working yesterday. Tried everything and no luck. Its an MP830 and the printer works fine.

Did you have a storm or lightning? Try unplugging the power cable from the left rear of the machine (not the wall). I have had to do this on several occassions after storms. Good Luck!
