SOURCE: PC dead. Replaced power supply. No lights. No nothing.

When that happens it is usually the motherboard.

To test parts you need a benchmark.

PSU can be tested using a multimeter.

Motherboard is tested using a tester like this one: PCI Test Card, PC Analyzer, Motherboard Test Card
Ram and CPU (CPU sometimes get damaged) are usually not damaged by this kind of problems, they can be tested mounting them on a working motherboard. For the RAM we also use a RAM tester that costs about $200.

Ensure also that the switch contacts to new motherboard are installed properly. A technician can test cabinet power switch using a multimeter, or carefully bridging with a screwdriver the switch on contacts on motherboard (do not do this unless you are sure about what you are doing)

Test the new PSU on a different socket, when a PSU blows , it may damage the main socket.

Also remember that new power supply units have two connectors. The big rectangular main one (24 pin) and a smaller 4 pins squared one.

As an home user you may not have access to testing equipment, therefore my suggestion is.

Ensure you are using the right PSU.

Ensure that the motherboard is connected to power switch.

Test the new PSU with a multimeter.

Examine the motherboard for blown or leaking components and burnt areas.

If you do not find anything, but the mainboard is still not working, then buy a motherboard-cpu bundle compatible with the PSU that you bought and assemble a new system inside the old cabinet.


Regards.

Hi, I am using HP Laserjet 1020. In this printer red light not working. So printer is not working. How can i rectify this problem. When I give print out all document in queue with no error messages...........


If red light not working nothing will happen, printer has to print but in your case we can suspect power supply board or formatter.Step 1:Check printer initializing or not, are you find out any difference while initializing? Step 2:Check whether system recognizing the printer or not. If not replace with another formatter then confirm, even its same replace power supply board..

Pixma 810: Suddenly the printer is dead. Despite power cable is connected with Pixma I can no longer turn the printer on. Is there a fuse anywhere? What is the solution? Best regards Peter Widmer


Hi

First of all please make sure that all the cables from/to the printer are connected properly. Now please use different power socket to make sure that the printer is getting power. If so then we can reset the printer. To reset the printer unplug it from/to the power socket and mains and let it sit without power for more then 10 minutes and then replace all the cables and print a test page. If still the issue is not resolved then you'll need to replace the printer cable. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Canon Pixma 5200 printer power will not come on. It's 3-4 years old and has worked problem free until now. No known power surges and all other devices on same circuit are fine. It seems to have just...


Hi,

Do you see any Light Blinking ?

If no, It sounds like Faulty Cord or might be Fault Power Supply Unit ( Adapter/Switch/Fuse ).Also, try removing the print head before replacing the power supply. Many times the print head fails and printer won't power up. If it powers up with the print head removed, you're good to go with a new print head.

The next suspect would be PCB. If that is at fault, keeping in mind the Age of Printer, better to Purchase a New One as it does not make any sense to pay more for repair than Investing in new one.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Printer is printing in RED ink only??


Something's gone wrong with your cartridge. Try to use an old cartridge that worked and see if there are changes in print. If there is, then you need to replace your cartridge, it's busted. This issues usually happen when you replaced your cartridge while the printer is unplugged. Make sure you unplug the power cord before replacing the cartridge with a new one.

Printer does not power up


My Canon IP3000 would not turn. It turned out to be the Print Head. It had burnt out and gone short circuit. This caused the built in power supply to shut down, hence, the printer appears dead.

Now, how do you get the Print Head out when it is locked down on the left side (your right side if facing the printer)? Open the top lid and inside you will see a chrome sharft, about 10mm in diameter, that the Print Head slides along. Put you finger under this bar and lift it 3 to 4mm. It's under spring tension. The Print Head will also rise, releasing it from the lock. With your other hand, slide the Print Head to your left. You can now release the bar and move the Print head freely.

To confirm the fault, try to power up the printer with the Print Head removed. Don't forget to put the lock bar down first, to stop it hitting the cover when it tries to go home.
