Cant get my printer to turn on

During the early morning we had a power surge and computer did shut down then restarted and was protected which I also though the printer was too but when I went to use it it would not turn on so I shut everything down and unplugged the printer (all outlets) and plugged it back in and turned on the computer etc and nothing...still no power at all to printer. Could it be damaged now because of the power going off in the night? I checked everywhere for a reset button or something. Read the manual and still no solution to get my printer to even turn on.

Frequently power down

1. Power off the printer and computer and then disconnect the interface cable.

2. Power the computer back on.

3. Once the computer has booted, power the Brother machine back on.

- If the computer still reboots, restarts, shuts down, or enters hibernation mode, this problem is related to the power source for the Brother machine and computer. Continue to the next step.

4. If the Brother machine and computer are plugged into the same surge protector, uninterruptible power supply, or power backup device, power everything off.

5. Unplug the Brother machine power cord from the power device.

6. Plug the Brother machine power cord directly into a wall outlet or a different surge protector strip. You may need to use the reset button on the power device.

7. Power the Brother machine and computer back on.

Good morning, i was printing and the printer shut

Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall. Replug the power cord after at least 10 seconds - bypass any power surge devices or power strips. Replug the power adapter into the printer. Your printer should automatically power on, otherwise, press the power button. If the printer still won't power on, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

After power outage the printer won't power up.

The printer is dead, the surge got thru and fried it. Replace it and the surge-protector.

Hello-i have 2 problems with my lexmark 2600 1-printer is only 4 months old. it is always telling me that there is no communication.,i plug and unplug, restart machine, it dosent always work. 2- after...

Hello. Unplug the usb cable from the computer. Reboot the computer. Remove the power supply off the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in to. Reinsert the power supply after 10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, plug the usb cable back to the computer. Good luck!

Installer Canon PIXMA iP1000 Printer

If you attached the printer FIRST, before you installed the CD disk that comes with the printer, you will have conflicting drivers.
When you install device without installing it's drivers, Windows 'sees' the device, and matches up one of the thousands of generic drivers it has.
You need THE drivers for YOUR printer.
Windows will have a conflicting issue with which drivers to use. The ones it matched up, or the ones you installed.

A Driver, is software that allows an operating system to 'communicate' with a device. (Windows XP is an example of an Operating System)

Should you have connected your printer first, THEN installed the CD disk, this is how to correct the problem,

1.Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. REMOVE anything you see listed with Canon's name in it, pertaining to your printer. There may be more than one program.
You should be asked if you wish to restart your computer. NO!
Close all windows until you are back to the desktop screen, then shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

2.Computer off, and unplugged from the surge protector. (Electricity)

3.Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

4.Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.
(Number 3 and Number 4)
What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

5.Now plug the computer back into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.

6.After Windows has fully loaded all the way, and any programs you have in the Start Up menu have loaded, install the CD disk that came with the printer. Follow the installation instructions.

7.Once the installation is done, you can restart your computer if asked. If you are not asked, go ahead, and restart your computer.

8.After Windows has fully loaded, and any Start Up programs have loaded, plug the USB cable from the printer into your computer.

9.Plug the printer into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the printer on.

Printer isn't functioning

While using my printer, it appeared to shut itself down. The power button did not work. I called Canon and the service rep instructed me to disconnect the power cord from both ends (from the printer and the outlet (for 5 to 10 minutes). When I reconnected the printer, the printer worked fine. The rep stated the machine will do this rather than become damaged from a power surge. Hope this helps.

Computer Restart

I noticed this issue also. Initially, I thought it was the printer. However, I found that I was overloading the electrical outlets that were on a 15 amp breaker. With my computer and the CLP printer, and two to three other items on the same circuit, the computer defaulted to power down due to the overload.

Printer Surge

I agree with first thought circuit overload.

I dont think it is the printer, I think it is your power supply in house. Just moving it to another socket does not change it from what might already be a circuit with a lot of load already.

You are experenceing surges that are normal operation ie at power on quatz lamp turns on reaching temp of 180 deg cel, then idles, if print command is issued back on comes the lamp drawing power.
