Question about Canon S520 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

AC Adapter # K30170

Gentlemen:
My wife tripped on the printer electrical cord, and the printer fell to the floor. The cord plugs into an AC Adapter/module (K 30170) witch can be remove from the printer's back by pressing 2 tabs. After removing it, 4 or 5 color wires that go into the printer are exposed.
I did some tests with my VOM and no voltage reaches the printer.
Can you find this part from an old/broken printer?

Thanks:

AAV

It will not trurn on does the ac adapter need replacement it is over 10 yrs old


Look at adapter, see what output is supposed to be- maybe 12 volts DC? Find a multimeter that will measure DC voltage, and see if the output plug has that across the connector. If you have an ordinary power cord without an adapter, it will have 120 volts AC like any other cord, which you can also measure on AC scale, but be careful as you can get a dangerous shock, just like you can from an ordinary household outlet.
Note: AC voltage may vary by country.

I cannot turn the printer on


These are the possible solutions:
  • Press power button.
  • Disconnect and reconnect the power cord. Plug the printer's power cord straight into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using. Bypass any surge devices or power strips.
  • Unplug the power adapter from printer (rectangular black box inserted in the printer where the power cord is attached). With the power cord attached to it and other end plugged into the power outlet in the wall, check if it's warm/hot but not too hot, that means it's working fine.

If these does not help, it could be a possible defective power adapter issue. Please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance. Thanks.

The printer is plugged in but does not turn on. The green light on the AC adaptor is on. I have tried a friend's AC adaptor and it did not work either.


I think it would be wrong to suspect a problem with the adapter wire if the same problem occurs with two adapters. Do both adapters work with your friends printer? If so one would suspect that the plug port on your printer is defective.

This is the advice from the manual:

Power button is not lit

1 Disconnect the power supply cord from the wall outlet, and then from the printer.

2 Plug the cord all the way into the power supply port on the printer. make sure it is well seated

3 Plug the cord into an electrical outlet that other electrical devices have been using.

4 If the Power button light is not on, press Power.


If this does not correct the problem and it is a new purchase I would consider returning it to the vendor. Otherwise you may need to have a technician Tto investigate and confirn that power is reaching the printerre and the problem lis elesewhere with a switch or posisbly you need to replace the power connector port on the printer.

MP830 will not power on


Here is what Canon has to say:
Solutions for Printer won't power up Issue: The device does not power on

1. Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source 2. Disconnect the power cord and wait approximately 10 minutes 3. Press the ON/OFF button to power on the multifunction device 4. Disconnect and reconnect the electrical cord to ensure a secure connection 5. The MP830 may require repair 6. Try a different electrical source / outlet
Here is a snip of my notes on the same subject for an Epson printer:
Well, first things first I guess:

  1. Try the printer in a different outlet (other side of room, or similar, not same power Jack)
    1. If you have power here, your issue is likely the outlet, not the printer.
  2. If the power cord has an "on" LED, check to see if it is lit up while plugged in.
    1. If you have an LED with no light while it is plugged in, you are looking at a power adapter that is no longer working
  3. If there is no "on" LED to check, your next best bet is to take your printer and power cord to a store that sells printers, and ask if you can "try" a new chord before buying it. (most stores will allow this to keep customers happy)
  4. You may also want to check with the manufacturer if the chord is found to be bad, as some will send replacements free of charge.
  5. The last option is that there is an issue inside the printer. This is not likely, though it is possible. Most printers have an external power adapter that keeps any power issue outside of the printer, but I can't tell from the Canon site if this printer has one or not. (It would be a black box between the plug and printer.)
    1. This can also be checked by "testing" a new chord at a store. New chord, still no power, internal issue.
      1. If this is the case you will want to contact Canon if the unit is still under warranty.
-Hope this helps.

Printer doesn't turn's on


Per Canon:

Solution: Disconnect and Reconnect AC power adapter or power cord to the device and electrical source

Secure all Power Connections
  • Disconnect the AC Power Adapter or power cord from both the device and the electrical source.
  • Then reconnect it.
  • If you are still unable to obtain power to the device, try another power outlet.
  • If possible, try connecting power directly to a wall outlet (as opposed to using a surge protector or power strip...just as a troubleshooting measure).
If this does not work, have you tried a different outlet to ensure that the outlet isn't the issue? Also, when you press the POWER button, does the printer respond at all, or is it basically dead?

Please post back if you need further help, otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!
