When you flip the power switch on the side, you should see either lights on the front or hear the fuser and cooling fan. If neither of these happen with the switch in either position, check the power cable and power socket it's plugged in to. If all these are OK it is likely that the power transformer inside the printer has died or the power switch itself has failed.

Gateway laptop i push power button it wont boot up but leds in front flash 4 times


Try holding down the power button instead of just pushing it. I had this problem with my HP dv7 and holding the power button down for around 5 seconds worked for me. Also make sure that its plugged in to a power source.

How can you reset a brother HL-5170DN with out the password either with it connected via USB or ethernet i cannot remember my password


You'll need to reset your printer to factory settings. BE SURE TO PRINT A CONFIGURATION PAGE FIRST.

VIA THE PRINTER CONTROL PANEL
  1. Switch the printer off.
  2. Make sure that the front cover is closed and the power cord is plugged in
  3. Hold down the Go button as you switch the printer on. All the LEDs light up. Keep the button pressed down until the Toner LED lights. When the Toner LED lights, release the Go button.
  4. Hold down the Go button until the Yellow Status LED lights. When the status LED lights, release the Go button.
  5. When all the LED's light, the printer will start warming up. The print server has now been reset to its factory defaults.

This should fix the drum light being on that 1720

Turn off the power using the switch on the back of the printer. Open the front door of the printer. Hold Continue button down, power on the printer, and continue to holding Continue down until the LEDs begin to flash. When the LEDs start to flash, release Continue button. The LEDs will continue flashing until only Error LED will be lit. Close the front door. Continue, Ready/Data, Toner Low and Load Paper LEDs should be lit. Wait till the printer completes the POST process. POST is complete when fan noise and rollers stops. After POST wait for 5 seconds Press Cancel button 4 times slowly until the Toner Low LED is lit. This is the procedure resetting the counter. Press and hold Continue until all LEDs begin to cycle in sequence, then release Continue. Now only the Toner Low LED will be lit. Cycle the power of the printer: Remove the power cable - Wait for 5 seconds - Plug the power cable back to the printer - Power the Printer on.
