You can contact any local technician as it needs a repair but the amount you will pay to the local tech would equal to two printers
you can purchase a DELL printer
you can call 1-800-999-3355(united states) and place an order for the new printer

After a brief power outage during a thunderstorm my canon i9900 will not turn on. I left it un pluged for several hours and then repluged it and still nothing. Everything else in the office works fine.

The power supply of your printer are damage due to the brief power output during the thunderstorm. Just check the fuse inside of the power supply of the printer if they have some burned or else use the Multi Tester to identify that the fuse are damage or needed for replacement.

After power outage the printer won't power up.

The printer is dead, the surge got thru and fried it. Replace it and the surge-protector.

Have you recently had a severe thunderstorm?
Sound to me the units components have taken a shock.
You can try to unplugged it overnight and turn it back on.Remember that if you run through a power strip and there is lightning and it intercepts the surge it has lost much of its protection!
Also only use the software or the actual printers power button to start or turn it off.

Tally T2240/24 Printing Problem

When you changed the ribbon, it is more than likely that the print head is out off position and the printer needs to find its home position again.
To get the printer to find its home position again power the printer OFF and back on again, the printer will then check the position of the print head and set the 'home possition'

You can set the left margin on the printer by simply moving the paper in the printer by unlocking the tractors and sliding them in the required direction.
