My Printer HP DESKJET 2360 is offline. I tried to unplug the cord then plug it again but it wont turn on.. Please I need your help..

I have the Plug going to the wall and confirmed power at the outlet. I have the UBS back to the Computer and plugged into the printer and it will not turn on at all. Its a Year old at most and havent used...

I see a power supply issue here. Looks to me your printer power pack is gone bad. You need to confirm this by trying another similar power pack with the printer to be sure. If the printer is portable take it to the store or technical personnel to try another power pack with it. Once confirmed you may have it replaced.

Good luck & God bless!

Canon pixma mp780 printer will not turn on!

It's possible that the printhead has burned out and in the process it's blown the printer in the process.

You can try one trick that has worked for me in the past but it's by no means guaranteed.

- Disconnect the printer from the mains/power socket!
- Remove the cartridges and printhead

Work out how to remove the left panel (left when looking at front) and then identify the power pack which is like a module that plugs into the printer.

Into this power pack goes one or two small internal connectors which you should disconnect, wait 10 seconds and then reconnect.

Push the power module back into position if you've had to release it, and then try plugging the printer back in to the mains/power-socket and try turning the printer on.

If it DOES comes back online, you should get a brand new printhead ASAP.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT use your old printhead as it will blow the printer or any other printer that it is installed in.

If it doesn't come back on then it's toast and it's time to look for a new printer.

I suspect you will find the printer is dead but if it does come back online you'll have dodged a bullet that took my MP750 and iP4000 to printer heaven. The fix above worked for a couple of iP4200's and an MP500 so it could still be ok.

Good luck.

Won't turn on?

Unfortunately this sometimes happens because the printhead has decided to die on you... There's a warning in here too so whatever you do, don't try the printhead in another printer because if it was the cause it will fry that printer too.

A couple of things to try though:

1. Locate the printer power pack in the printer... This is a module that will slide into it's slot in the printer. Removing it may require you to take the case top off (which I can't help with, sorry) but if you can manage it continue..

OBVIOUS BUT IMPORTANT: Disconnect from the power before you do ANYTHING!

2. Remove the power pack from the printer and disconnect from the cable or cables internally but make a note of how they connected so you can reconnect.

3. Re-connect these cables after a couple of minutes, replace the power pack.

4. Test the machine by plugging it back into the mains and turning it on... If it comes back to life, you're sorted... If it doesn't your options are very limited.

Oh and obviously check that the fuse hasn't blown in your power leads plug (if you're using a fused plug - ie: in the UK, etc.)

Hope that helps... and good luck.

Turning on i guess

It should work OK once you plug it back in. Note there are three places to check the power connection.
- The power pack has to be inserted firmly
- the cord that goes into the power pack
- the cord into the wall - be sure to check the wall outlet with a lamp or something to make sure it's not an overall power problem/breaker, etc.

Hi-- This is actually a problem with the Canon LK-51B battery pack that goes with the iP90v portable printer. We've charged up the battery pack and all the lights have gone out, indicating full...

electronics should not be relied on to realy confirm u need to use a second battery pack to connect ur printer n see if the same thing will occure. i guess the battry inside d pack may be dead even though its a new one.
