Hi,

Since it was only January, then perhaps you can claim warranty. Problem could be anywhere from the fuse, AC cord or AC adapter, power supply and a few other more.

Should you prefer to do a DIY, this would require that you be familiar with electronics circuitry and components, the use of a DVM and probably even a soldering iron. Should you wish to venture a user electronics repair, pls post back.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Your particular model comes with an external AC adapter that is powered from the mains and provide the low voltage supply for the printer. This is made up of three parts; the AC cord, the adapter itself and the output cord. You need to check the continuity of both cords and a voltage output of the adapter. A DVM would be required.

Hi,

Does the printer show any signs of life when you plug it in?

Hp PSC1210 All-In-One not turning on


HP makes a couple of different power cords for the PSC 1210 and their other printers. First make sure you are using the correct power cord (Amperage and voltage). Unplug the power cord (from the wall and the printer and from a power module if you have one). Leave all of the sections unplugged for at least 15 seconds to reset the power module/printer.

Next connect the power cord to the wall outlet and to the power module if present and check if the LED (if present lights up). If it doesn't try another outlet. In either case, check what the outlet voltage/amperage is at the end of the power cord with a multimeter (before you plug it into the printer). If you have a power module, then check the Amperage (it will be a DC current out).

If you are not getting the correct voltage and amperage out or the LED doesn't light (with a known good outlet), try a different power cord/module.
You can order these from HP.

If you have the correct power at the cord, plug the power cord into the printer and attempt to turn it on. (Press and release the power button.) If the printer still doesn't come on, the unit needs service. Contact HP if the printer is under warranty. Decide if it is worth fixing if it is out of warranty.

I hope this helps.

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,

My c4480 printer will not turn on. I checked the connection on back of the printer. I used different A/C outlets.


Hi,

Try the following solutions if there are no light indications, no noise, and no movement from the printer when you turn it on.
Solution 1: Make sure you use the power cord that came with the product
Solution:
• Make sure the power cord is firmly connected to both the product and the power adapter.
Plug the power cord into a power outlet, surge protector, or power strip.
• If you are using a power strip, make sure the power strip is turned on. Or, try plugging the
product directly into a power outlet.
• Test the power outlet to make sure it is working. Plug in an appliance that you know works,
and see if the appliance has power. If not, then there might be a problem with the power
outlet.
• If you plugged the product into a switched outlet, make sure the outlet is switched on. If it
is switched to on but still does not work, then there might be a problem with the power outlet.
Cause: The product was not being used with the power cord provided.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 2: Reset the product
Solution: Turn off the product, and then unplug the power cord. Plug the power cord back in,
and then press the On button to turn on the product.
Cause: The product experienced an error.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 3: Press the On button more slowly
Solution: The product might not respond if you press the On button too quickly. Press the
On button once. It might take a few minutes for the product to turn on. If you press the On button
again during this time, you might turn the product off.
Cause: You pressed the On button too quickly.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 4: Contact HP to replace the power supply
Solution: Contact HP support to request a power supply for the product.
Go to: www.hp.com/support.
If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for information on calling
for technical support.
Cause: The power supply was not intended for use with this product or it had a mechanical
failure.
If this did not solve the issue, try the next solution.
Solution 5: Contact HP support for service
Solution: If you have completed all of the steps provided in the previous solutions and are still
having a problem, contact HP support for service.
Go to: www.hp.com/support.
If prompted, choose your country/region, and then click Contact HP for technical support.
Cause: You might need assistance to enable the product or software to function properly.

Good Luck
