Re: No power due to a lightning ,

Unfortunately, no power is no power. The power supply may be damaged. The only solution would be to get the unit serviced.

Got hit by lightning and won't turn on. Power source is good. Need to find out how to take it apart.

Most of the time after an appliance has been hit by lightning, it is toast. In the case of a printer you can probably buy a new one for the cost of the replacement part. Next time make sure you also purchase a surge protector to plug your computer and printer into and then you will be protected from lightning strikes.

My HP Office Jet Pro 8600 will not power up. We had a big storm last night and it may be due to a lightning caused power surge. Is there any type of internal protection device, fuse or breaker I can...

No internal fuses, sorry. If the power surge cam in on the AC power line then the external power adapter in most likely dead. You can check the output power with a multitester set to DC voltage, it should be 32volts. If it is bad then you need to replace it, they are available on Ebay here:

If the power surge came in on the phone line and you had it connected to use it as a fax then the main logic board will need to be replaced. You would need to get the HP number on the side of your logic board to order one of these, there are several versions and you need your number to get the correct one.

All LED lights flashing on Brother HL-2140, how do you clear it?

Your printer needs servicing due to a fault on its electronics. This is due to a power surge or spikes cause by an abnormality in your power distribution system or your power transmission/distribution lines might have been struck by a lightning during a storm and its breakers have failed to cut the power.

As a precautionary measure, always plug electronic devices on surge protectors.

Send your printer to your nearest Brother Service Centers.

Copier will not turn on....had a storm and power outage earlier this week. Brother MFC-6490CW.

Seems the is an internal problem due to overvoltage. This could be caused due lightning.
If you are lucky only an internal fuse is blown. Else the power supply is gone ... In the worst case also other electronic parts are damaged.

Our hp printer j4680c took a lightning strike. We replaced the power adapter but when we plug it into the printer the light goes out on the adapter. Is there anything else we can try? The unit doesn't...

This sounds as if it has shorted out the main power board inside the printer. Some small TV Repair shops handle out of warranty printer repairs, but will charge considerably for this. Unless your willing to pull it apart it would be more economical to replace the printer. But ask around, someone may be willing to give you a quote, and this should be weighed against the cost of a replacement
Unfortunately with lightning strikes the amount of power surging up the line can destroy many components inside the printer,and not much can be done from the outside.
Sorry it was not the answer your looking for, but lightning is a electrical devices worst enemy!!

Power outage and now my brother HL-5250DN Laser printer won't work. Removed it and plugged back in. It installed automatically but won't print. Using Win 7

Your printer may have experienced damage to electronic components with the outage, especially if due to a lightning strike causing the outage. You should have a shop troubleshoot and decide if it will need a new board, such as a formatter/logic board.

Brother HL 2170W printer fried by lightning?

Wait until the printer cools and try again. As you said, you've tried from different power sources (including a different outlet). If still the same problem, unfortunately, your printer got the "hit" instead of the protected power strip.

After lightning struck in my backyard, printer won't turn on.

HI, this was an unfortunate surge that has fried the power board Assembly in this unit. it has also fried the main control. this may be a total loss unless, you are considering replacing the entire mother board and power assembly as well.

Replacing the main control board and power board will restore proper function.
