My clp500N will not power on. I've made sure the power cord is delivering sufficient power, changed power cords and sources, but it does not go on.
Every dozen or so times I boot up, the printer will also go on and work perfectly witih no error messages. We try to do all our printing during these times! Once it went on after switching the main power switch on and off 7 times (coincidence?).
Toner seems full, I've emptied toner overflow, I've made sure all doors/drawers are shut properly, and I've even re-loaded the printer driver.
Ideas? Can it be internal counters that are programmed to not allow it to turn on or maybe a simple as a bad on/off switch? I'd buy a new one but just spent big $ on new toner.

The wate motor transfers (you guess it) waste toner to the waste toner
bottle. If the bottle fills up, the motor cannot transfer more waste to
it. This is rare, for the printer should ask for a new waste toner
bottle when the previous one fills. However,it happens frequently when
users try to empty and clean the bottle instead of replacing it.
If it is not getting any power at all, only one of three things: cord is fried/dead; could be the outlet, try something else in the same socket; or, the board in the printer is dead. 1.Press the POWER button to power on the printer The device has a <POWER> button.
Connect the power cord from the printer to the electrical source. Press the <POWER> button. Wait until the device has completed its cycling process before submitting a print request or completing installation.
That is a problem with the toner sensor, it's in the black window behind the waste toner bottle. Sometimes blowing the toner off with a duster can will help, but usually I have to replace the entire sensor assembly JC96-03234A
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
