My PIXMA MP530 seemed unable to get power. I checked all the connections and couldn't get it going. A call to Canon was to result in them sending me a new printer until after a second call I got a technician who suggested the following and it worked!
Unplug the printer and wait at least an hour. After an hour plug it directly into a working socket.
Apparently there is a transformer that has to have the unplugged time to be able to reset (or something).
Anyway it worked and saved me a whole lot of hassle.
4 step to Reset waste counter CANON PIXMA iP 1500 STEP 1:- Disconnect printer from AC power(unplug it from all source of power supply leave it for 5min then back after)) STEP 2:- Press and HOLD the POWER button, and connect printer to AC power STEP 3:- release the the POWER button STEP 4:- Press the POWER button again
it may need to be reset or the worse the power surge blew out its memmory chips inside the printer. printers come with an amount of memmory about 4 to 8 megs so that it can remember print jobs try a test page after you leave unpluged for half hour
the printer should be able reset itself
I had this same issue. Lost power in the house for just a second, but after the printer would not turn on. I think that the loss of power caused the printer to get stuck in a locked state. Tried everything I could think of including changing outlets that the printer was plugged into but nothing seemed to work. Saw a troubleshooting tip on the Canon webpage about unplugging the unit for 5 minutes and thought it was hooey, but tried it anyway. Ended up leaving the unit unplugged for probably 15 minutes and when I re-plugged it in it fired right up.
