    I too have no power to my MP830. I tried the "20 min" off and it did not work for me. Any suggestions to what else can be done. A few days ago the ADF wasn't working and would tell me I had paper jammed and to remove the document??? HELP!

    My printer has no power to it at all. We have tried everything. Disconnecting the power cord etc with no luck. Its less than 9 months old and had little use. Is there any thing else I can try. We had a power cut today while I was at work could this have affected the printer.



    Hope you can help.

    I have the same problem with my MP830. The power does not turn on. We tried several outlets that have power and are currently working, but no luck. We are currently trying the 20 mins off solution that is posted. I'll write back in 20 minutes and let you know how it goes.

There is a glass pigtail fuse on the printed circuit board of the power supply. The problem is getting into the power supply housing. It's not meant to be accessed but can be done. I removed mine from the board and it tested bad. The other problem is finding the same type and rated fuse. Good luck with that. It wasn't meant to be. Good news is that you can buy a new power supply from Canon for about thirty bucks and it's a breaze to replace. It's located where the power cord plugs into the unit and has only one screw securing it. Five minutes or less to replace.

Unplug from the wall for at least 20 minutes to let the capacitors drain.

Hi,

Try this out:

Some printers require time to turn on. These printers may or may not give feedback in the form of blinking light(s). Wait up to a minute for the power light to come on before proceeding with the steps below. Instructions If the printer uses a power adapter (module), follow the instructions below. If the printer uses only a power cord, see the section below entitled “ If the printer uses only a power cord .” If the printer uses a power module Follow the steps below to ensure power is properly supplied to the printer:
  1. Check the power module part number against the part number listed in the User’s Guide to ensure the proper power adapter is being used.
  2. Disconnect the power cord or adapter from the wall outlet.
  3. Disconnect the printer data cable from the printer.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the printer, wait thirty seconds, then reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  5. Disconnect the power cord from the power module and reconnect the power cord to the power module. This may not be necessary if the power module has a permanently attached power cord.
  6. Reconnect the power cord directly into a working wall outlet. If the power cord was plugged into a surge protector or power strip, plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead. NOTE: "The HP Photosmart 8100, 8400, and HP Deskjet 6000 series printer power cords feature a green LED built into the power plug. If the LED is not glowing, the power module may have failed. Proceed to step 7 below.
  7. If the printer still will not turn on or the power LED built into the power cord is not glowing, plug the printer into a wall outlet in another room. If the printer or power LED turns on when connected to an electrical outlet in another room, there is a problem with the power in the original room.
  8. If there is still no power to the printer, then the power module, cord, or printer may be defective. Try the power module/cord on another HP Deskjet or Photosmart printer, of the same model if possible, to see if the power module is functioning. If the power LED is still not glowing, the power module may be defective. Replace the power module and cord.
  9. If the power module/cord works on the other printer, then this printer is defective. Service your printer.
  10. If you cannot determine whether the problem is the printer or the power module/cord, or if another printer is not available to test with, replace the power module/cord first. If this does not resolve the issue, service your printer.
If the printer uses only power cord Follow the steps below to ensure power is properly supplied to the printer:
  1. Check the power module part number against the part number listed in the User’s Guide to ensure the proper power adapter is being used.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Disconnect the printer data cable from the printer.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the printer, wait thirty seconds, then reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  5. Reconnect the power cord directly into a working wall outlet. If the power cord was plugged into a surge protector or power strip, plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead.
  6. If the printer still will not turn on, plug the printer into a wall outlet in another room. If the printer turn on when connected to an electrical outlet in another room, there is a problem with the power in the original room.
  7. If there is still no power to the printer, then the power cord or printer may be defective. Try the power cord on another HP Deskjet or Photosmart printer to see if the power cord is functioning.
  8. If the power cord does not work on the other printer, it is defective. Replace the power cord.
  9. If the power cord works on the other printer, then this printer is defective. Service your printer.
  10. If another printer is not available to test with, carefully inspect the power cord for damage.
  11. Inspect the power cord for visible damage. If the power cord is damaged, replace the power cord first. If this does not resolve the issue, or if the power cord looks fine, then service your printer.

Goodluck,
Dont forget to rate me as fixya..

Lighter plug seems burnt out


Even if the fuse shows no signs of being blown (one such sign might be a black spot), you might want to try a different fuse of the same amperage to make sure.
If the fuse is good, you have more work to do. Check whether power is getting to the outlet by testing it with a voltmeter or circuit tester. If the voltmeter shows power is reaching the outlet, the outlet itself is probably damaged from repeated use or simple misuse. Though chargers and other plug-ins are supposed to be of uniform size, some may be bigger or smaller than others.
time to get a new outlet then.

Lexmark E450dn will not power on, power cord is working


This issue may be due to one of the following:

  • An incorrectly set power switch.
  • An improperly functioning power outlet, surge protector, or power supply backup.
  • A poorly connected power or data cable.
  • A defect with a third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) option such as a memory card.
  • An incorrectly connected or malfunctioning optional paper tray.
  • A malfunctioning printer component.
Please try the following steps:

Step Action 1 Make sure the power switch is in the "on" position. If it is, power off the printer. 2 If your printer's power cord is plugged into a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), unplug it and connect it directly to a grounded wall outlet. Some of these devices can interfere with consistent electrical flow and cause the printer to fail to power up properly. 3 Disconnect the power cord from the back of the machine and then reconnect it. Make sure the power cord is plugged in all the way. 4 Disconnect any data cables (parallel, USB, Ethernet) from the rear of the printer. Any defect in a data cable may cause an electrical short circuit that could cause a loss of power to the printer. 5 Turn the printer on, this time with only the power cord connected and plugged directly into a grounded wall outlet. 6 If the printer still fails to power up, power off the printer once more. Verify that the outlet is working properly by connecting another device to it to see if it receives power. You can also try plugging the printer into a different grounded outlet. 7 If possible, try another printer power cord. 8
Verify that the printer is the correct voltage type for the environment in which it is being used. A 110V (low-voltage) printer will not work properly in a 220V (high-voltage) environment, and vice versa.

  • NOTE: Look at the rear of the printer and locate the electrical specifications sticker. Verify that the voltage rating on the sticker is the correct voltage for your printing environment (i.e. 110V or 220V).
9
Remove any third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) options, such as memory cards, as they may interfere with proper printer functioning. Also remove any paper-handling options such as an optional second paper tray. 10
Attempt to power on the printer once more with all options removed, having verified that other devices work from that power outlet.
If there is still no power, the printer may require service to fix the issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local service provider.

Canon iP4300 printer won't power on. It was running and just shut off, light won't come on power button. Tried another outlet, no help. Sounds like a Fuse, but can't find anything showing where it is.


It may well be a fuse but it isn't likely to be a familiar one unless you are a tech. Most parts on boards are now done with robots and the fuse case best suited to this is called a 'micro-fuse' and come in two packages; one is a cylindrical case with two pins through the board that are bottom mounted. The other looks like a resistor (but no color code rings) and mounted parallel to the board. Both will have tiny ratings on them and require a soldering iron.
Another possibility is that a small value capacitor (typically between 4.7 and 100 uFd) has decayed to the point that the power supply no longer functions but this problem will normally result in an intermittent, and finally permanent failure to even turn on rather than failing while operating.
BTW, trying another outlet isn't always successful unless it is on another circuit. If a breaker or GFI has tripped, it will affect all outlets on the circuit. Better is to try another appliance in the suspected outlet.

GE JVM1190SY/WY My microwave shows no signs of receiving any power. The light won't even come on. I have tried plugging it in to several different outlets, all of which tested good for a 120 volts. ...


Dead appliance, power on wall outlet.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

If your appliance has absolutely no functions at all, remove it from the mains supply, remove the case and see where the mains lead goes in to the appliance and follow the cable until you find the main fuse.
ONLY USE THE SAME TYPE AND RATING OF FUSE TO REPLACE IT.
The usual cause of this fuse failure is the door switches are contaminated or sticking. Check the door switches before putting power back on to the appliance.
Hope this helps.

2006 Dodge Dakota - power outlet doesn't work. The #28 fuse checks fine.


Take a 12v test light and wrap the probe with electrical tape, leave about
1/4" exposed. With the key on, ground the test light wire and insert the
probe into the outlet and touch it to the center power contact. If the light
stays out and you have a good ground, you don't have +power at the
outlet. If the fuse is good, you may have a bad wire or socket. But if it
lights up, we go to the next step. Touch the probe to a known +power
source and ground the wire to the metal side in the outlet. If you don't
get light, check the ground for the outlet socket. Repair as needed.
If it lights up, then you know you have power and ground. Check the
plug on the device you're trying to use. I hope I was of some help.
Good luck.

No power ay outlet


Maybe unpluged power/ground on plug. take off trim to access back of pwr outlet. It should have grnd wire and hot wire. Test hot wire with a different ground. If it tests ok, relocate ground/run a new one. If it has no power, recheck fuse or run a new hot wire from fuse panel.
