This morning I went to turn on the printer and it won't turn on. I have unplugged everything and plugged it back in without anything happening. I don't know what else to do. I acts like there is no electric response what so ever. If there is something I am missing let me know

Try unplugging your communication cable and turn everything off. Turn everything back on and plug in the cable. If that doesn't work delete the printer from your printer list and re-install it. Usually in this type of scenario it's a communication issue.
Did you get it working Jason? My MP610 did the same thing to me this morning... I went through all the rigmarole of moving it, testing it with different power cords and etc... with no success. I left it unplugged completely, tried it again this afternoon and it works. Well, it turned on, copied a piece of paper, I was able to access the ink cartridges and switched it on and off again twice and it worked. Hoping it will stay that way. I don't know if it happened because I put a CF card in to slot - will try card in another reader first and see what happens... I would be interested to hear what happened with yours, Jason.Cheers, Vicki 23rd April 2012
Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall. Replug the power cord after at least 10 seconds - bypass any power surge devices or power strips. Replug the power adapter into the printer. Your printer should automatically power on, otherwise, press the power button. If the printer still won't power on, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.
I believe the fix is to disconnect power cord for an hour or so.
This is truly maddening... it's a bug in the design of their power supply. It's happened to me three times in the past few months.
The first time it happened, I haplessly stumbled onto the solution wisdos mentioned (unplugging it for a while) without realizing it. I thought it just started working for no apparent reason.
The second time I tried all sorts of tricks (not remembering the fact that I'd disconnected the power for a period), spoke with Canon support several times and finally had to agree to have them send me a replacement printer.
I'll skip the part about not being able to get the old printer's print head and inks out to put in the new one because it wouldn't budge without the power being on.
Now, with second printer and a five-second power failure, the same deal... won't turn on. This time I pulled the power cord from the printer and let it sit for a few hours. Plugged it back in and it came on.
The maddening thing is that Canon support didn't want to escalate this to someone who might understand the power supply and diagnose the problem properly... their solution was to send out a new printer. What a waste of time, money, and effort.
Turn the printer off, unplug it, wait 10 seconds, plug it back it, and turn it back on. If it still says there's a paper jam, there is something interfering with it. Turn it off again, pull everything out that you are meant to, poke around, take anything you see that doesn't belong out, put everything back in the right place, and turn it back on. If you still have a problem, you should contact the manufacturer.
