The power supply could certainly go bad. Have you had any power surges or outages recently? Do you use a surge protector? Is there any other device plugged into the same circuit that is having problems?

You can probably find a new power supply for your printer somewhere online, but between the cost to buy it, cost to ship it, and time spent replacing it, you're probably just better off buying a new printer.

ML350 G4 will not boot. System was running but became unresponsive. Powered down using power button. Now no response to pushing power button. No Leds lit anywhere. Fans running on power supplies.

Try pulling the hot swap Power supplies, push the power button hole the supplies are out to discharge power, then put them back in again and try the power button again.

I accidentally plugged my hp photosmart printer into the wrong power supply and now my printer will not turn on. Is there a reset button on this printer?

You can look for a reset button on the rear,bottom or sides of the case but I doubt that you will find one. If you plugged the wrong power supply into the printer the printer's internal power board is probably damaged.

You cannot fix it yourself as you do not have the schematic or wiring diagram of the printer and you probably don't have the test equipment required to isolate the failed part(s)You will have to take your printer to a store that repairs printers and copiers.

If you believe that this information was helpful to you, please return to the FixYa website and rate my response to your question.

Our canon MP560 printer will not turn on - it was plugged into a surge protector and we have tried moving the plug to alternate outlets just to make sure that wasn't the!

This is what worked for me. I had a similar setup and could not get the printer to turn on. Remove the power supply from the back of the machine. It is a very simple process: pull apart two small plastic connectors with your fingers to remove power supply. Disconnect internal blue cable from power supply.

Replug blue cable and be sure it is plugged in tight.
Push power supply back into place, be careful of blue cable when pushing it back into printer.
Plug in and printer just may work...good luck!

My printer does not turn on?iam pushing the on button.

Unplug the power supply from the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. With the other end of the power cord still plugged in to the power outlet, the power supply of your Lexmark X5650 should have a green light on around the silver contacts. If not, you might have a defective power supply. If that's the case, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for the power supply request. If there is, plug it back in the printer all the way through and in a correct position. Printer should power on automatically, otherwise, press the power button. If printer is still not powering on, it might be defective now. Contact Lexmark Technical Support for further troubleshooting.

You may have a problem with the switch panel board. If you disassemble it, you may be able to test the panel by shorting the two connectors to the power button. On the other hand it could be the power supply that is dead on the output side. Both are problems that do occur with R3** series but not that common.
