Hello The printer no longer turns on. There is no indicator light either. Possible reason? While rearranging my workspace I switched off the power strip without first switching off the printer. Since then it doesn' turn on any more. Thanks, Vince

A couple of things to try before you go the repair route. You've already disconnected the power supply to have it checked. Sometimes removing the power supply from the printer will reset it.

What I recommend doing first, is disconnect the power supply (if you reconnected it) and then disconnect any computer connection. Reconnect the power supply and the see if it will power on. If it does, there is a probability that the computer cable is shorted and causing it to ground out and not allowing it to power on. Then you will need to replace the computer cable. If that doesn't solve the problem, then it is probably an internal fault.In this Case, you need to Sens the Unit for Repair. Possible Causes could be Board might have Blown.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Indicators, headlight, high beam, Heater showing strange behavior. Can you please suggest what could be the possible reason for it . BCM or Multi Function switch?

Hooking up an OBD2 reader will tell you right away if the BCM is shot or BCM. Take it to advanced auto or O'Riley's they will hook up a an OBD2 reader and tell you. Sounds like a faculty PCM and BCM to me or just faulty PCM since you've replaced the Body Control Module already.

When the switch is pushed the indicator lights go on for an instant then turn off.

This is a powre supply problem and could be fatal. They used to be available as a spare but are no longer. The power supply is the same as on the 430/450 and 750 so you may get lucky.

My brake lights are not working. I've checked the bulbs and fuses and changed the brake light switch. I'm also having issues with the turn sugnals not working properly... could the turn signal switch...

no the indicators are not connected in any way with the brake lights ,which is what i would say on a europeon car but i have just realised that american vehicles use the stop light as the indicator so in which case the answer is yes ,dont have a lot of experiance with this system as its illegal here in europe ,but what i would do here is to put a paper clip across the brake light section of the switch and and then follow the current back along the loom .Now on this type of system the indicator cuts out the brake light so its possible that the new switch is defective as all the works for this cut out and turn on is built into the stop light switch so its possible that for some reason you are supplying power to the switch when you shouldnt ,or what else it could be is a bad earth on teh back light cluster so try another earth wire as well to the back lights as a bad earth will cause all sorts of problems .

Ws61753 reset light continues to flash no reset

only 2 possible reasons----reset micro switch on front of set is bad or the receiver(large metal box is bad) if the micro-switch---remove front grills and inspection plate behind them---locate the one or 2 plugs that come from the front keyboard and unplug them----wait a full 2 minutes and turn set on with remote control---if it comes on you have bad switch on the front keyboard(seen this before) if it does not come one the receiver box is bad(usually bad caps and one or 2 other parts) it can now only be sent out to be rebuilt----Mitsubishi no longer sells this part and when they did it was very expensive.

if this was helpful please indicate by a vote for my help.

check the cables, it's possible that a wire used for the comm. from the server to the switch/router is not making proper contact or is broke...
