Hi. My printer was working fine. I turned it off for about 10 days. Now I can't turn it back on. I've checked all cables, outlets, etc. I've pressed the on button for up to 15 seconds. Nothing works. It just won't turn on. Please help!

Could be almost anything ! Do the usual simple checks - fuse in the mains plug (should be 3A), have you got another piece of equipment (radio etc.) that uses the same 2-pin plug for power - use it to check that the mains cable is OK. If the mains cable is OK, it maight be the switch on the power supply module or the power supply module itself ('L'-print), but could be more ... check if the sewing light or display backlight is coming on, but if completely dead, your only solution is to get it checked-out by a Bernina service agent.
Either the power source has issues or the power jack on printer has gone bad or printer's main board has issues. Verify that the electrical connections and outlet are functioning:-
Unplug the power cable or power module from the electrical outlet.Unplug the power cable or power module cable from any power strips or surge suppressors.If the product uses a power module with a detachable power cord, unplug the cord from the power module, and then plug it back into the power module.Unplug the power cable or power module from the back of the product.Wait at least 30 seconds, and then plug in the power cable or power module into the electrical outlet.Plug the power cable or power module back into the product.Turn the product on. If this doesnt help, take the printer to another room and plug it in another power source. If this doesnt help, use a multimeter to check if adapter is giving out right voltage. If adapter and power source are fine, then your printer has a hardware issue and needs to be repaired by Canon.

This may be a longshot, but many electronic devices like TVs, dryers with electronic computerized controls, entertainment systems like the Wii, and other devices sometimes get "confused" and won't turn on, turn off, or otherwise work properly, perhaps due to a small power surge in your AC line.
I've found that one of the first things to try when it appears to be a failure of the electronics and not a mechanical issue is to unplug the device at the wall (to make sure that any power adapter is also unplugged) and wait about 10 minutes for any residual electric charge to dissipate. Then plug the device back in and give it a try. This has worked with a television, a Wii console, an electric clothes dryer, and some other devices that I thought had died for good. This may explain why sometimes a device is taken to a repair shop and it works fine.
There are, of course, other reasons that the unit won't turn on, but I would try this first before looking for other reasons for the problem.
If the printer is plugged into an AVR or a UPS try
plugging it directly to a known good power outlet to make sure that it's
not the UPS or AVR that's causing the trouble.
Another thing you
can try is to make sure that the power cable is ok. Eventhough it's
intact wires from inside the power cable might have melted so try
swapping power cables or if you have a power tester check for the
continuity of electricity on the power cable.
If both looks good
and the printer still does not want to turn on, check if the power light
has any sign of life, does it give a blinking amber light or no light
from the printer comes out at all?
If there is a blinking light
or a steady amber light try to remove all the printer components (inks,
cartridges, etc. and put them back in then try turning the printer on)
it still does not work please provide the model number of the printer
as a service might be needed to make sure that the capacitors, IC's and
the PC-board of the printer is ok.
P.S don't forget to check the fuses to make sure that they are in good condition.
