Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
It's not so very clear about your problem. I am not sure whether it the problem with your printer or with the computer that doesn't power back. In the first part of your query, it seems your printer is having a problem, but when we go down to the 5th line "The green power light was on so i tried to turn the computer off and back on. It will not power back on" I got confused with it.
If it's the printer, before you do anything with it, remove the cable usb cable from the computer and disconnect it from the printer. Now unplug the power cord from the printer, and connect it (the Dc adapter and the printer) to another socket (only to check that the outlet adapter is not the problem). If it works and power on on with another socket box, then the problem is with the "triple tab outlet adapter". It might have burnt out or have got overheated when you did connect the vacuum cleaner. Power jack/Socket/(Triple Adapter) easily gets damaged and burnt when a high power electric appliance is connected. It could be loose connection or if not would have totally burnt, you'll not be able to use/connect to the adapter unless you replace it.
But if in case the printer doesn't work/power on even with another Mains Outlet, then verify that the AC adapter (printer's adapter) is turned on. You'll be able to see this from the power led light indicator.
Let me know after you are done.
