Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Printer doesnt power on....no light
I was encountering the faint, high pitched whine that Crisaturno and theaney were getting. My printer (X6170) wouldn't power on, but after leaving it plugged in for about 5 minutes the whining stopped. My printer then powered on. I think the high pitched whine is a capacitor charging (My printer had been unplugged for a week or two). Try leaving it plugged in for a good while and see if the whine stops, if it does, hopefully your printer will start up.

After a power outage, I experienced the same problem. I plugged into another outlet & still no power. Eventually, I got the printer to power up. I think when you press the power on/off switch - you need to depress the switch for 5 seconds & then let up on it. Try this at least twice to make sure you cycle thru at least 1 on/off cycle. I also thought the power supply went out - but not so.

Is the printer connected? and switched on? (sorry for saying this but sometimes silly mistakes happen). Also is the switch on the printer turned ON? (maybe just the mains is ON). If it still does not work, u need to get your printer power assembly replaced.
