If the output voltage is cheked it can be confirmed. It is possible tto repair the unit if it has failed. so opne it up and check if the fault is minor like the failrue of fuse in themains or in the secondary section . If so replace and test on printer to ensure it is not blowing out again. If so there is a powerr short onthe main printer board.
However If the adapter is not working evenif fuse is intact, it must be checked with a multimeter to confirm the fault .

My dell v313 printer has power to it and wont turn on


Often this is due to the power adapter going defective. Try another power adapter (available cheap on eBay). If this model does not have an external power adapter, it is probably the voltage regulator or rectifier in the printer itself and would not be worth fixing.

Printer wont turn on


Try to unplug the power adapter at the back of the printer and check if the LED light is on. If not, try to plug in the power cord to another power outlet. If still the same problem, the power adapter is the culprit.

If the LED light is on, make sure to plug in the power adapter all the way in the printer.

OfficeJet 7410 wont boot up.


I would try resetting the power supply.
You can do this by unplugging the power adapter cable from the wall outlet.
Unplug the other end from the printer.
Unplug the power cable portion from the rectangular power adapter.
You should be left with a power cord, a power adapter, and a printer; All three are not plugged into anything. Leave it this way for 30 secs, then retry the turn-on process after plugging the cords back into where they belong. Also, try plugging straight into a wall outlet, and not into a surge protector.

If this is not working still, double check the outlet in question by testing it with an appliance like a hair dryer or lamp.

Good luck!

Printer wont feed paper


Try to reset your printer. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. printmastert_40.jpg

Wait at least 10 sec before replugging the adapter to the printer. Try to print again. If that doesn't help, there could be something in the feeder that's blocking the paper path. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder and grab a flashlight and look inside.

Hp c5280 wont switch on, its been working well when last used this morning.


Disconnect the power chord from the back of the printer. Wait for 40 seconds and connect it back and check if it is warming up or not. If not the press power key for few seconds and see if it turns on or not.

If not then check if the adapter is getting warm or not after it is connected to wall outlet.
If adapter is warming up then try another power chord and check..

If both power supply are getting warmer then problem is with printer hardware and if printer works with another power chord then replace the damaged power chord

My printer wont turn on


Dear Sir,

If your computer won't turn on, try each of these steps:
  1. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a working wall outlet, and that it's properly connected to the power adapter. (To check if the wall socket is working, plug in a lamp or other electrical device.)
  2. Make sure that the power adapter is properly connected to the power port on the back of the computer.
  3. Disconnect all accessories that are plugged into the computer, such as a printer, hub, or iPod.
  4. Reset the computer's PMU, SMC, or PRAM. Refer to the instructions for your model:
  5. Try plugging a different power cord into the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power cord.
  6. If the computer uses a power adapter, try connecting a different power adapter to the computer (if you have a working one available). If the computer starts up, replace the old power adapter. (Computers that use a power adapter include MacBook, MacBook Pro, iBooks, PowerBooks, Power Mac G4 Cube, and Mac mini.)
  7. If you tried all of the steps above and the computer still won't turn on, contact Apple technical support (1-800-APL-CARE in the U.S.) or take your computer to the nearest Apple Store or Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP) for diagnosis. If you plan to visit an Apple Retail store, make a reservation at the Genius Bar using

Thanks For Your Time,
