The Canon 8180 will work with Windows 7 32 bit operating systems only. Their latest ToolBox drivers will also get the USB connected scanner to function. 64 bit Windows 7 users are simply out of luck as the printer is not compatible. Drivers are on Canon's site and easy to access.
the part is hard to fit if you have never done it before. If you plug the power straight into the lower half of the machine, does the printer section start up.
If not then it will be the Lower Power Supply as you have said.
i have got this down to about 1 hour to fit but i have been doing this machine now for 2 years. it is a big job and requires alot of space and time as you have to strip it comp down. I would say to maybe look at hiring a engineer to do it.
Depending what country you are in depending if i have any contacts that would help you?
