Re: will not turn on

Check for paper jammed inside the printer. Check usb adapter is connected, if not printer does not turn on. however you can make a engine test page by pressing a button inside hole located in lower right side when you are behind the printer (below usb adapter)...
If anything does not work, your printer is over now..

HP 1315 printer won't turn on

I have an HP printer too, but it's HP 2050. When i plug it in it usually makes a noise and then the power button blinks. To turn it on requires me to hold the power button down for a few seconds until the power button light stays on. If you haven't tried yet, try pushing down and hold and see if it turns on. Hope this helps :)

You can do this by resetting the communication settings between the computer and the printer.

Turn off printer, unplug power cord and usb or parallel/usb cables .
wait for 15minutes and connect all cables back on then turn power on.
it should work if it does not work then seems you have problem with
head/logic board so that needs to be replaced.
if that's case, better see printer Tech to have the part replaced.

When i try to print something a window pops up that says "communication not available" ive tried restarting, unpluging the power cord and the usb cord...nothing seems to work

This problem could be caused by several factors - incorrect USB port selection, your printer is not set as your default printer, firewall, etc. This article in the Lexmark website: Communication Not Available' Error Message and Print Job Stalls in Print Queue will help you determine the cause and resolve your printing issue.

Canon Pixma Mp810 won't turn on, any suggestions

I had the same problem. Everything was working fine one day, but when I tried to switch it on the next day, nothing! The status light came on green briefly but then turned off. I thought the power module might be blown so I ordered a new one, that changed nothing, my printer was still completely dead, showing no sign of working at all.
I dismantled it to inspect every component for signs of failure, everything looked like new. Having read that the print heads can fail (dry out then blow) on canon printers, I tried starting the printer without the printhead and hey presto, it turned on and went through it's startup cycle. After making whirring sounds for a while a message popped up telling me that there was no printhead installed. As soon as I reinserted the printhead the printer turned off and wouldn't turn on again, even if I removed the printhead again (and unplugged/waited etc). I had to unplug and then re-plug a connector on the printer's motherboard to get back to the stage when the printer would turn on (without the printhead).
I have inspected the printhead with high powered magnification and found nothing unusual - a new printhead is about $100! My final conclusion is that there is nothing actually "wrong" with the printer but rather that it is a case of programmed obsolescence. My printer is about 5 years old (like new) and in the service manual that is the prescribed lifetime for the printer, so it's designed to simple stop working after that time.
PS. I did do the ink well reset procedure, didn't help.
