Question about Dell 922 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

After power outage the printer won't power up.

During a thunderstorm we lost power for a couple hours. The computer was off when this occurred. My dell PC (XP) works fine but the printer (922) won't power up. I have held down the power button for 5 seconds a few times. I have also disconnected power from the surge strip, and the USB cord, reconnected and restarted the PC a few times with no success. I have plugged the printer into a different power source. All the settings check out in printer/properties. When I try to print the error message tells me there is no communication to the printer.

The printer is dead, the surge got thru and fried it. Replace it and the surge-protector.

Sound system keeps cutting off. Red flashing light over power button


Take it in to a Kenwood service centre. You can't possibly diagnose what has been damaged by the power spike. At least it is not totally fried and they usually are. You are lucky.

Wii won't turn on after a power outage.


Hey, recently had a power outage and now your Wii won't turn on?

Well unless your Wii is completely fried from the storm then this should work (It has for me every time I have had an outage).

After you find out it's not getting power then just unplug the power cable from the wall and from the Wii. Normally I unplug it for about 12-24 hours then you go plug it back into the wall, plug it back into the Wii, look at the power button and if it is red/orange then it has been fixed and you should never have a problem with it again unless you keep it plugged in during a thunderstorm/power outage!


This has happened to me about 8 times and this method worked every single time!

Whirlpool refrigerator not cooling after storm


Assuming that both freezer and refrigerator temperatures have risen and the humming sound that you heard was followed by a sudden click more than likely the start device on the compressor has gone bad. This is a common problem with all Whirlpool refrigerators (KitchenAid is Whirlpools top of the line product and suffers the same problem).

After a brief power outage during a thunderstorm my canon i9900 will not turn on. I left it un pluged for several hours and then repluged it and still nothing. Everything else in the office works fine.


The power supply of your printer are damage due to the brief power output during the thunderstorm. Just check the fuse inside of the power supply of the printer if they have some burned or else use the Multi Tester to identify that the fuse are damage or needed for replacement.

I had a power outage in my neighborhood the other day and ever since then my wii isnt turning on. what my be the problem?


Whenever I have a really bad thunderstorm that ends up in a power outage my wii does the exact same thing...

I don't know what the cause is but what you should do is just unplug it for about 12 hours (about how long i leave it unplugged everytime), plug it back in and if it is the same problem as I have it should work fine (until another power outage...)

BUT if it still doesnt power up leave it unplugged for another 6 hours, after that if it still wont turn on id call nintendo and find out what the problem is...

Voice mail outage


You can try unplugging the power supply and phone lines for a few minutes. Then reattach the phone lines and power up to re-boot.
Our Vodavi 5000-00 used to blink off during thunderstorms until it finally fried. This is how we used to reset it.

Power outage


It sounds like it got fried by that power outage, did you have a surge protector on it? If you just bought it in December it should still be under warranty. I recommend you call Emerson and see what they can do about it.

No power


Hi,

It is possible that during your absence, there was a power outage/interruption, a thunderstorm or even a spike in the power lines.

Initially, have you tried a full hard reset? If not, pls unplug from the mains. Most current devices would reset and revert back to factory default settings (assuming no internal hardware fault) when unplugged for a considerable period of time (a couple of hours).

Other than the above, there is no other user action possible as the unit has to be opened requiring knowledge with electronic components and circuitry. If the full reset is still a no go, then perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
