    It's probably a bad power supply, but can you plug something else into the outlet to make sure it's not a fuse?

Cannot turn on the printer even if connections are ok ?

The only thing that could stop you from turning the printer on other than a broke printer is the power/power cord is not connected. The printer should turn on without a USB or parallel printer cable attached.

If no lights are showing when you try to power the printer, check the power connection in the back of the printer to ensure it is plugged in, check the plug into the adapter is connected and that the power cord's plug is connected to the wall outlet - if you have a power strip make sure it is turned on and the circuit breaker is not popped. Make sure that there is power to the outlet by plugging in something else to show it has power. If all of those check out ok and you have a meter, check for voltage at the power connector at the printer (pull the plug out of the printer and check voltage from inside the plug to outside the plug. It should be 18 vac.

If all of this is ok, there is something wrong inside the printer. Probably time for a new one as cost to repair is probably too high.

X4530 InkJet Printer: printer won't turn on. Don't have ink cartridges i...

The printer should turn on even without the cartridges yet. Try this. Make sure the power cord is plugged in straight to the wall. Bypass any surge device or power strips. Unplug the power supply from the printer. It's the black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in. With the power cord still plugged in to the power supply, the LED around the contacts should lit solid green. If not, make sure the power cord is properly secured. If this does not help, you may have a defective power supply. If it does, insert it back in the printer in the correct position. Plug it hard just to make sure. If it does not power on automatically, press the power button. If this does not help either, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

This, probably, is a power issue on the printer. Unplug the printer from the computer. Unplug the power supply from the printer (it's the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Try not to use any power strips or extensions for the power cord. If possible, plug the power cord straight to the wall outlet. With the power cord plugged in straight to the power outlet, plug the power supply back in the printer. That should refresh the printer. When everything's powered on, plug printer to computer. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Cannot turn on printer

Is the printer plugged into a power strip? Please make sure the power strip is turned on.

Also, please change the power cable for the printer as this can sometimes be faulty.

Have you tried to plug the printer into a different location, I mean into a different wall outlet.

Was printing fine. I turned the printer off and it won't go back on. Everything is plugged in correctly.

Possible hardware failure, unfortunately.
Turn it off. Then unplug it from your computer and unplug it from the wall too.
Plug it directly into a working power source. Then turn it on.

Printer won't turn on.

Try to unplug the power cable for about 2 minutes then plug it back in. Check if you can turn it on now. Double check the power plugs. Try to plug on a different power outlet.

Printer does not turn on - checked plugs etc - all OK It could be a problem caused by new cartridge being installed.

This just worked for me. Printer would not turn on, no lights, nothing.

Took cartridge's out, unplugged from computer and wall outlet. Waited 5 min. Plugged into wall plug first, printer turned on, plugged into computer and reinstalled the ink cartridge's and pc found new hardware ( printer ) and all was working after that.

Unplugging from wall socket and pc, was what I needed to reset it.
