Brother HL 2170W printer fried by lightning?

Printer was plugged into a protected power strip during a lightning strike. My wife thought she noticed an arc--not at the printer but near the modem/router that printer is also plugged into. Printer now does not power up. Right side, near vent, is very slightly warm. Power source checked and triple checked. It's the printer. What do we do now?

    Yeah I've tried all that. Still faintly warm at the first vent, and no other signs of life. This a printer only--not an all in one. Does it have a fax board? Is the power board easy to and worth reolacing?


    Thanks for all help

    Plug it staright into the wall outlet, see what it does. If it still gets hot, It may be that the Fax board in the unit it shot. or the power bd. is bad.

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.

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.

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.

Power overload with Brother HL-2170W


It might just have been that outlet in the surge protector is bad when you tried to use it, it might have shorted the system out

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.

Replace with new will need new main board (170 bucks) and modeum board, for best protection it needs a fax filter that protects power line and phone line, standard surge protecter only protects power line
