1st - Could be a non-working outlet, Check the breaker for this outlet.
2nd - Could be a bad power cable or not inserted far enough making a good connection.
3rd - There could have been a power spike from a storm that blew a fuse in the printer.
4th - If no fuse, than something more serious has happend to the printer & needs repair or trash it & get another when there is a sale. Some can be bought for the price of the ink.

I hope it's 1, 2 or 3. Good luck.

Hi,

Try this out:

Some printers require time to turn on. These printers may or may not give feedback in the form of blinking light(s). Wait up to a minute for the power light to come on before proceeding with the steps below. Instructions If the printer uses a power adapter (module), follow the instructions below. If the printer uses only a power cord, see the section below entitled “ If the printer uses only a power cord .” If the printer uses a power module Follow the steps below to ensure power is properly supplied to the printer:
  1. Check the power module part number against the part number listed in the User’s Guide to ensure the proper power adapter is being used.
  2. Disconnect the power cord or adapter from the wall outlet.
  3. Disconnect the printer data cable from the printer.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the printer, wait thirty seconds, then reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  5. Disconnect the power cord from the power module and reconnect the power cord to the power module. This may not be necessary if the power module has a permanently attached power cord.
  6. Reconnect the power cord directly into a working wall outlet. If the power cord was plugged into a surge protector or power strip, plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead. NOTE: "The HP Photosmart 8100, 8400, and HP Deskjet 6000 series printer power cords feature a green LED built into the power plug. If the LED is not glowing, the power module may have failed. Proceed to step 7 below.
  7. If the printer still will not turn on or the power LED built into the power cord is not glowing, plug the printer into a wall outlet in another room. If the printer or power LED turns on when connected to an electrical outlet in another room, there is a problem with the power in the original room.
  8. If there is still no power to the printer, then the power module, cord, or printer may be defective. Try the power module/cord on another HP Deskjet or Photosmart printer, of the same model if possible, to see if the power module is functioning. If the power LED is still not glowing, the power module may be defective. Replace the power module and cord.
  9. If the power module/cord works on the other printer, then this printer is defective. Service your printer.
  10. If you cannot determine whether the problem is the printer or the power module/cord, or if another printer is not available to test with, replace the power module/cord first. If this does not resolve the issue, service your printer.
If the printer uses only power cord Follow the steps below to ensure power is properly supplied to the printer:
  1. Check the power module part number against the part number listed in the User’s Guide to ensure the proper power adapter is being used.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet.
  3. Disconnect the printer data cable from the printer.
  4. Disconnect the power cord from the printer, wait thirty seconds, then reconnect the power cord to the printer.
  5. Reconnect the power cord directly into a working wall outlet. If the power cord was plugged into a surge protector or power strip, plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet instead.
  6. If the printer still will not turn on, plug the printer into a wall outlet in another room. If the printer turn on when connected to an electrical outlet in another room, there is a problem with the power in the original room.
  7. If there is still no power to the printer, then the power cord or printer may be defective. Try the power cord on another HP Deskjet or Photosmart printer to see if the power cord is functioning.
  8. If the power cord does not work on the other printer, it is defective. Replace the power cord.
  9. If the power cord works on the other printer, then this printer is defective. Service your printer.
  10. If another printer is not available to test with, carefully inspect the power cord for damage.
  11. Inspect the power cord for visible damage. If the power cord is damaged, replace the power cord first. If this does not resolve the issue, or if the power cord looks fine, then service your printer.

Goodluck,

Pixma ip1600 won't turn on. No power cord just a cord from printer to computer. I unpluged the entire system and waited 15 minutes and it still won't power up. Any suggestions?


You need the power cord which has a polarized plug on one end. The other end (a figure 8 like shape) will fit into the printer. See http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/7/0900005347/01/ip1600esi_us.pdf . Amazon and other sites have replacement power cords for Canon inkjets and inkjet multifunction printers. One source: http://www.amazon.com/Canon-ip1600-ip6600d-ip6700d-Printer/dp/B003XT2LKC .

I hope this helps.

Computer won't detect printer


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer (if USB connected)> reboot your pc > unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer (if USB connected). Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection or when the WiFi light on the printer turns solid green (if WiFi connected.).


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable connecting the printer from your computer.
  2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.
  3. Delete the Lexmark print object.
  4. Reboot computer.
  5. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - black box where the power cord is plugged into on the back of the printer, and re-plug after 30 seconds.
  6. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to the computer.
  7. Wait until your computer fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, try to print a document to verify that the problem is fixed.

You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/nJ7AgN. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

Please try the steps below:
  1. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the power source. Re-connect after 30 seconds to a different known working power outlet. Bypass any power surge devices or power extensions/strips and directly plug in the cord into the power outlet in the wall.
  3. Re-plug the power supply into the printer.
  4. Press the power button if the printer won't automatically power on.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

Lexmark E450dn will not power on, power cord is working


This issue may be due to one of the following:

  • An incorrectly set power switch.
  • An improperly functioning power outlet, surge protector, or power supply backup.
  • A poorly connected power or data cable.
  • A defect with a third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) option such as a memory card.
  • An incorrectly connected or malfunctioning optional paper tray.
  • A malfunctioning printer component.
Please try the following steps:

Step Action 1 Make sure the power switch is in the "on" position. If it is, power off the printer. 2 If your printer's power cord is plugged into a surge protector or uninterruptible power supply (UPS), unplug it and connect it directly to a grounded wall outlet. Some of these devices can interfere with consistent electrical flow and cause the printer to fail to power up properly. 3 Disconnect the power cord from the back of the machine and then reconnect it. Make sure the power cord is plugged in all the way. 4 Disconnect any data cables (parallel, USB, Ethernet) from the rear of the printer. Any defect in a data cable may cause an electrical short circuit that could cause a loss of power to the printer. 5 Turn the printer on, this time with only the power cord connected and plugged directly into a grounded wall outlet. 6 If the printer still fails to power up, power off the printer once more. Verify that the outlet is working properly by connecting another device to it to see if it receives power. You can also try plugging the printer into a different grounded outlet. 7 If possible, try another printer power cord. 8
Verify that the printer is the correct voltage type for the environment in which it is being used. A 110V (low-voltage) printer will not work properly in a 220V (high-voltage) environment, and vice versa.

  • NOTE: Look at the rear of the printer and locate the electrical specifications sticker. Verify that the voltage rating on the sticker is the correct voltage for your printing environment (i.e. 110V or 220V).
9
Remove any third-party (i.e. non-Lexmark) options, such as memory cards, as they may interfere with proper printer functioning. Also remove any paper-handling options such as an optional second paper tray. 10
Attempt to power on the printer once more with all options removed, having verified that other devices work from that power outlet.
If there is still no power, the printer may require service to fix the issue. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support or a local service provider.

My printer won't turn on. I have tried turning everything off and back on but it still won't turn on.


There is only one way to find out if it is an issue with the printer or the Power cord or Power Adapter.

Normally every HP printer has 2 parts. One cord connects the Printer to an Adapter. the Adapter cord then connects to the Wall outlet.

Now that you have connected the printer to working outlet, Check after 10-15 mins if the Adapter ( black box ) is warm or cold. If the Adapter is warm and the green LED light on adapter is glowing, then it could an issue with the Cord or the Printer.

Try with another Adapter or power cord to diagnose.

For Other brand printers, there should be a power adapter ( black box ) and it should be warm when connected to wall outlet, if it is not warm then it is defective power adapter that you need to replaced. Else it is a problem with printer mechanism.

I have a HP Deskjet D1560, and with the power cord plugged into a working outlet (I checked), the printer won't turn on. Is it just old? Is something wrong with the power cord or the printer?

When printer is turned on it reads 256MB and that is it. No menu buttons or anything else will work. Never get ready light.


First, try to unplug and wait 30 sec. then replug the printer into the wall to try to reset it. Then, read below to see if there is a solution if the '256mb' display problem persists. Control panel display is blank No display message Cause Solution The printer’s on/off button is in the standby position. Verify that the printer is on. Fans might run while the printer is in standby mode (off). The printer’s memory DIMMs are defective or installed incorrectly. Verify that the printer’s memory DIMMs are correctly installed and are not defective. The power cord is not firmly plugged into both the printer and the power receptacle. Turn off the printer and then disconnect and reconnect the power cord. Turn the printer back on. The line voltage is incorrect for the printer power configuration. Connect the printer to a proper voltage source, as specified on the Power Rating Label on the back of the printer. The power cord is damaged or excessively worn. Replace the power cord. The power source receptacle is not working correctly. Connect the printer to a different power receptacle. Printer is on, but nothing prints Cause Solution The printer’s Ready indicator light is not lit. Press STOP to return the printer to the Ready state.
