As with most modern electronics, your unit has a 'switched-mode' power supply and most are built well enough to outlast the warranty.
They are very efficient but the kind of service some parts (especially electrolytic capacitors) are subjected to adverse conditions.

If you want to try a DIY analysis, remove the housing from your unit and locate the power supply; if it is modular, you may have to open a second case (much smaller).
Power supplies are easy to identify since they are clearly a different animal than found on the main boards, being made up of coils and larger semiconductors than the other functions.

If you gain access, look for cylindrical components mounted perpendicular to the circuit board with a plastic foil jacket and an exposed aluminum top, there may be a lot of different sizes but these are the most likely failures.
Since they can burst when failing, the aluminum is scored in a 'Y' pattern to enable a more gentle bursting.

Check them closely and look for domed (bulging) tops. These are close to dying and typically no longer able to function as designed.

They vary in quality so replacements can be better (longer-lived) or worse.

Most techs will know which replacements are best and the cost difference is low and negligible.

Good luck-

Printer won't turn on...is plugged in and has been printing well.


hi, have you tried checking, changing the fuse in the plug.
check the lead is fitted correct.

as for the fuse is the printer running of mains lead or just of the usb lead let me know, if its mains the unplug the lead that goes to your comp and then try it with just the power lead plugged in to see if that makes the differance.

Check the mains lead works try it on something else if you can if its running off only the usb lead then the lead may be at fault.

Let me know then i can assist you further ok

Have you tried unplugging the power cord from the back of the printer waiting a few seconds and plugging it back in. This may help it recognize the cartridges.
