My hp 1040 will not start up or turn on. I replaced the power cord, read the manual, did everything, switched out phone line cord, even used another phone jack and power outlet at home and still no...

If this is the model with the plugpack built into the back (and your cord plugs into this removable bit) just ensure this is firmly home with a good push!
failing that it looks like you've done all you can as a user, your local office equipment repairperson could be consulted, it's most likely a power supply replacement.
Good Luck!
