im sorry to answer like this but the best place would be from Canon, if you contact canon spare parts (you can find the pohone numbers on the canon website valid for your country IE> www.canon.com,au for AUSTRALIA or WWW.CANON.COM For the USA and so on.
they will have under CONTACT US the parst number to call, in some cases you can also scour through Ebay as sometimes there are ppl selling the printer as a faulty unit but it has a woriking power supply or they even may have a Chinese aftermarket one there for you
hope you get what your looking for
I think it would be wrong to suspect a problem with the adapter wire if the same problem occurs with two adapters. Do both adapters work with your friends printer? If so one would suspect that the plug port on your printer is defective.
This is the advice from the manual:
Power button is not lit
1 Disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet, and then from the printer.
2 Plug the cord all the way into the power supply port on the printer. make sure it is well seated
3 Plug the cord into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using.
4 If the Power button light is not on, press Power.
If this does not correct the problem and it is a new purchase I would consider returning it to the vendor. Otherwise you may need to have a technician Tto investigate and confirn that power is reaching the printerre and the problem lis elesewhere with a switch or posisbly you need to replace the power connector port on the printer.
No power to the printer.
1) Either the power adapter is not connected properly.Remove the power cord from main power outlet and connect it to any other electric outlet.Also at the back of the printer there is a socket where the power got get connected.Remove power wire from there too and reconnect it.
2) If the problem is not solved then there are two possibilities:--
A) The power cord is faulty and needs replacement.
B) Or the printer circuit board is got short and it has to be replaced.
In both the cases A as well as B you need to get the fault checked by other spare power adapter or power supply board in printer.At local printer repair shops they have this parts in spare.They will get the fault checked and let you know that which part has to be replaced.Either the power adapter or power supply board.The cost of new power adapter is near to $10 and cost of new power supply board is near to $40.
One more thing i want you to check is.In your printer power adapter there is one three pin power wire is connected.That three pin power wire wire goes from main power outlet to the printer adapter.In some cases that three pin power adapter gets faulty.If that three pin power wire is faulty then the cost of that power wire is just $2.So get that three pin power wire also checked.
To see how this three pin power wire looks.See the fig below:---
If this wire is faulty then its not much costly.
This are all the possibilities that you will have to get checked.To get the fault confirmed.Thanks.Helpmech.
You can try a different power socket make sure though it's plugged directly into a power socket without any adapters also check the front button panel to make sure it's firmly connected else your power unit must be blown if you smell a electrical burn from the printer then it proberly is damaged if you are still ubder warrenty I suggest contacting HP or your place of purchase
If no, It sounds like Faulty Cord or might be Fault Power Supply Unit ( Adapter/Switch/Fuse ).Also, try removing the print head before replacing the power supply. Many times the print head fails and
printer won't power up. If it powers up with the print head removed,
you're good to go with a new print head.
The next suspect would be PCB. If that is at fault, keeping in mind the Age of Printer, better to Purchase a New One as it does not make any sense to pay more for repair than Investing in new one.
