Unit will not come on-power ok ac to dc adapter ok


Great job on checking the power from AC to DC adapter. Also, make sure to plug the printer straight to the power outlet in the wall, bypass any surge device or power strip. Unplug and replug the power adapter in the printer, make sure it's properly secured and in the right position in the slot. Press the power button if needed. If this doesn't help at all, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. I hope I can assist you more on this matter.

My Wii stopped working. Nothing lights up.


This is a common problem with the Wii. As I said, I'm very surprised Nintnedo didn't cover this in the owners manual FAQ, considering it happens almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.

Even if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,not the Wii itself.

There is no need to buy a new one or a AC adapter. Resetting it should work. There is a circuit inside the AC adapterthat needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.

Unlpug it from the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.

My nintendo has no power going to it even tho the a/c adapter is hooked up


You'll need to unplug the AC adapter from the wall outlet and leave in unplugged for 5- or 10 minutes or so. Unplugging it from the Wii does no good.

You need to reset the AC Adapter. It's a common issue. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii.

No power


You may try to reset the AC adapter by following steps below.

1. Unplug the Wii AC adapter at both ends (from the back of the Wii system and from the wall outlet or power strip).

2. The AC adapter must remain unplugged at both ends for a full 2 minutes.
3. While you're waiting, unplug/remove all accessories from the system (including game discs, SD Cards, Nintendo GameCube controllers, memory cards, hookup cables, and Sensor Bar). Remove all of these from the outlet and the Wii.
4. Also check to see that controller cords, AC adapter, and Stereo AV cables/Component Video cables are not frayed and do not have exposed wires. If you find any frayed cords or exposed wires, you should replace those parts.
5. After you've waited 2 minutes, plug the AC adapter into the Wii system and directly into a wall outlet, not a surge protector or power strip. Check to see if the power light comes on.

If the steps above didn't work, I suggest you go at http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/wii_repair_home.jsp?problem=PWRNOPOWER and send the unit and power adapter for repair.

C4180 Won't Power On


Make sure the plug is all the way into the AC adapter. Then, you will need someone to verify the output of the AC adapter. You should have a 16VDC and a 32VDC output from the adapter. If that is good, you have an internal problem with the printer. If the output voltage(s) are missing you will need to replace the AC adapter.

Here are the specs:
  • Input voltage: AC 100 to 240 V ~ 1 A 50–60 Hz, grounded
  • Output voltage: DC 32 Vdc===940 mA, 16 V===625 mA
  • HP part# 0957-2146 Call 1-800-227-8164 for availability.

    It doesnt turn on!!


    You might want to check if it's just a bad power connection first, because a new adapter isn't cheap. They cost about 60 bucks plus shipping from the HP parts department:

    http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/Cart.asp?mscssid=X5RP3M7TBGKQ9H7055FS88LMF259DGG9&NotBulk=&NotFound=&NotOrderable=

    Before you shell out that kind of dough, I recommend you first eliminate the obvious like a bad surge suppressor or power strip. Sometimes, one of the outlets in a multi-outlet power strip can go bad and cause just one of the devices plugged in to lose power. It actually happened to me once with a brand spanking new surge suppressor I purchased and I had to go back to the store and get it replaced under the warranty. So, be sure to check by plugging your printer into a different outlet.

    If nothing's wrong with your power strip and AC power cord, the next thing to check is the power connector that plugs into the back of your printer. It has three contacts on it, which means there are three points of failure. Unplug it and plug it back in. Wiggle the connector a little, mumble "I hate this stupid printer", and then observe the printer's power light.

    Still nothing? Well, if you're feeling a little adventurous and have a basic understanding of how electronic circuits work, you can check the AC adapter to see if it's really dead. You do this by testing the DC outputs of the adapter with a multimeter. Don't have a multimeter? You can either borrow one from a geek friend, or buy your own for about twenty bucks at Radio Shack (get a cheapie model - nothing fancy). IMHO, everyone should own a multimeter. They come in handy for checking batteries and bad connections in low voltage wiring. After you learn to use one, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.

    Anyway, getting back to the printer, the AC adapter has a dual DC voltage output with three pins. The center pin is ground and the two on either side are positive voltages (+36 volts and +16 volts). If the AC adapter is good, your multimeter will indicate at or slightly less than these voltages when tested, around +35v and +15v. A good voltage reading tells you that the AC adapter is probably okay. In that case, the problem is inside the printer itself and buying a new adapter would be a waste of money. At this point, it's pretty safe to conclude that the old mule has finally kicked the bucket.

    Hope this helps.
