My son bought one and plugged into and electrical outlet inside. It worked fine. He unplugged it to take it to his room. The next time the electical outlet was used...which was the next day, the outlet was dead.
He took it outside. Plugged it into outdoor outlet. It worked fine. He unplugged it to move it, but instead just did without it. Plugged it back into same outlet several hours later.... outlet is dead. I'm scared to use it anymore. Has anyone else had any problems like this? What do you think is going on? All the other outlets in my house are working fine.

Either the power source has issues or the power jack on printer has gone bad or printer's main board has issues. Verify that the electrical connections and outlet are functioning:-
Unplug the power cable or power module from the electrical outlet.Unplug the power cable or power module cable from any power strips or surge suppressors.If the product uses a power module with a detachable power cord, unplug the cord from the power module, and then plug it back into the power module.Unplug the power cable or power module from the back of the product.Wait at least 30 seconds, and then plug in the power cable or power module into the electrical outlet.Plug the power cable or power module back into the product.Turn the product on. If this doesnt help, take the printer to another room and plug it in another power source. If this doesnt help, use a multimeter to check if adapter is giving out right voltage. If adapter and power source are fine, then your printer has a hardware issue and needs to be repaired by Canon.

If it is popping the GFI reset on the outlet, there may be a leak inside it. GFI's usually only trip in the presence of water creating a path to ground. It could be just starting to leak and shutting off before enough comes out to see. You could try plugging it in to a normal outlet, but you must BE CAREFUL! If there is a leak, don't touch it or unplug it until you kill the power to it by tripping the breaker, pulling the fuse, or unplugging an extension cored at a safe distance. Obviously, if you have a leak, take the necessary steps to fix it.
Did you unplug it from the Wii, or from the Wall Outlet? You need to unplug it from the wall outlet, not the Wii. If you haven't unplugged it from the wall outlet and left it unplugged for 5 to 10 minutes, then unplug it from the wall outlet and leave unplugged for a good 5 to 10 minutes.
This is a common problem with the Wii. Even if it's hooked up to a
surge protector. If there was a power surge, or the power went out,
etc...anything, this will happen. The problem is with the AC adapter,
not the Wii itself, so power to the AC adapter needs to be cut off.
There is a circuit inside the AC adapter
that needs to be reset. Unplug the AC adapter from the wall/surge
protector outlet. Don't unlpug it from the Wii, it has to be at the
outlet. You have to kill power to the adapter.
Unlpug it from
the wall/surge protector outlet, and leave it unplugged for 5 or 10
minutes. This will kill power to the AC adapter, and give the circuit
time to reset. When you plug the adapter back into the outlet after 5
or 10 minutes, the red led on the front should be lit up.
is a common problem with the Wii. Considering how often I see this problem, I'm amazed Nintendo didn't address it in their FAQ on the Wii. It happens
almost every time there is a power surge or the power goes out, etc.
if it's hooked up to a surge protector, this happens. Power comes back
on, but the Wii appears dead. It won't turn on, and the LED indicators
won't light. If there was a power surge, or the power went

You need to reset the AC adapter to get the Wii to work again. There is a circuit inside the AC adapter that needs to be reset.

Your outdoor outlet(s) may already be ground faulted: often these outlets are fed from an existing GFCI outlet; check your bathroom(s) or kitchen for a GFCI receptacle. Use the tester he mentioned to see if it is live – be SURE to get a tester with the button on it that checks GFCI's as well – if the tester button kills the GFCI from any outlet on that circuit, you know the GFCI is working. Using the tester in your outdoor outlet verifies the GFCI AND the wiring to your outdoor outlet – something the GFCI's 'test' button can't do. ...Wilzard
POSSIBLY THE EASIEST THING IS FIRST TO DETERMINE ALL THE THINGS THAT ARE ON THE CIRCUITS IN QUESTION AND WORK FROM THERE , AT LOWE'S OR HOME DEPOT OR A GOOD ELECTRICAL STORE YOU CAN PURCHASE A DEVICE CALLED A CIRCUIT FINDER THAT WILL HELP YOU FOLLOW THE CIRCUIT FROM THE PANEL TO EACH PLUG IN OR LIGHT FIXTURE , WHEN YOU GET IT ,It WILL COME WITH DIRECTIONS ON ITS USE IT SIMPLY PLUG IN OUTLETS IT WILL SAY TO PLACE OVER BREAKER BUT SINCE YOU ARE WORKING OUT OF A FUSE PANEL DO THIS PLUG INTO OUTLET YOU THINK IS THE FURTHEST FROM PANEL AND PLACE DEVICE OVER OUTLET NEXT CLOSEST CHECKING BACK TOWARD IF YOU NEED TO PLUG INTO LIGHT FIXTURE USE THE SCREW IN 2 PRONG PLUG LIKE YOU WOULD SCREW IN TO HOOK UP A EXT CORD ETC CHECKING FOR PROBLEMS ALL THE WAY BACK TO AND INC THE FUSE PANEL BY DOING THIS YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DETERMINE THE CIRCUIT ROUTING AND HOPEFULLY FIND THE PROBLEM ,HOPE THIS INFO USEFUL
Same problem, but now it is ok. I emailed Sunbeam and was told that if my blanket was not plugged directly into a wall outlet it was not getting enough power and I needed to plug it into a wall outlet taking these steps:
1) Unplug from the surge protector/extension cord
2) Unplug from the blanket
3) Plug back into the blanket
4) Plug into a wall outlet
