Sounds like the smpsu (power supply)is faulty.
if the fuse is black inside it means there is a s/c
on the psu if the fuse is clean it generally means
a faulty component on the board.
Either way replace or repair psu.

Make sure the voltage settings are correctly chosen, or you have the correct power adapter.

Re hp 1315 all in one the printer does not ge switched on after connecting the power cord. is there any electrical fuse which has blown off. if yes where is it located

Make sure you power cord is plugged in tightly on both the wall outlet and the transformer. Make sure the plug from the transformer is plugged tightly into the printer. If all this looks good check the outlet, or switch outlets. Then replace the power cord. If you have access to another PSC1315 try using its transformer.

The long and short of this is there is no fuse in the printer its self. If all the above fail, in all likely hood, you have a bad printer. At the price of these printers today, replacing it will probably cost you less than the ink you purchase for it.

Are you sure it was a full NEW toner cartridge?? Not an old one you had lying around.
If it was a new one the next question line goes as follows.... the machine will say in the display to "Rplace toner soon"...that dosn't mean its empty and to replace it..that means itsLOW and you should have a new toner cartridge "on-hand" because it will soon stop printing and say "REPLACE TONER". At that time the toner cartridge should be replaced, when it is installed a "fuse" on the cartridge blows and resets the toner light on the display. If you installed the toner cartridge when the display was saying "replace toner soon" you have blown the fuse in the new cartridge, now the machine has run about another 100 copies and says "replace toner"....but you now can't reset the light because the fuse is already blown because you may have replaced the cartridge too early!!! WHAT CAN YOU DO if that is the can replace the fuse on the cartridge..its pretty easy to see, just replace it with another mini-fuse of the same rating written on the existing fuse..then put the cartridge in again..the fuse will blow, reset the light and away you will go. When all else fails read the operators manual.

My ricoh 2045esp copier won't turn on. The wall outlet is working. Is there a fuse I need to replace, or reset button?

Have you checked the main power switch -- the orange switch on the lower left hand side of the copier? If that switch is off, the power switch on the ops panel won't work.
If that orange switch is on and you still can't get any power, there might be a blown fuse. The power supply board has several fuses on it, and if one of those fuses blows, it could prevent the machine from booting up.

How do i turn the unit on?

Simply plugging it the cord into an active electrical outlet will do the trick. There's no rocker switch on the back.

The MFCs tend to go into a power-saving mode where they are silent.

Look for signs of life on the tiny LCD screen.

If this doesn't answer your question, then follow this link to the Brother MFC 1850/ 1950 MC/ 1950 MC PLUS printer manual.

The main fuse is close to where the cord plugs into the machine. You can follow the wires, (black white and green) to an inline fuse or the main power board.

It wont print

hey mr /ms

i hope i can be helpfull plez tell me if the solution doesn t work ..and don t forget to rate me plez

Solution #1: Check the power cord at both ends. It might have been pulled out of the wall when you vacuumed last week, or the end that plugs into the printer might have come loose. If it did, plug it back in. If this is a new installation, make sure you didn't plug it into a power outlet that's connected to a wall switch. If the outlet is mounted upside down (the ground plug or "third prong" is at the top), it's a switched outlet.

Solution #2: It might be a blown fuse on the power supply. All dot matrix printers have fuses, and on most printers, the fuse is located next to the power cord under a small black cap that you turn slightly and then pull off. If it is the fuse (you'll see a melted piece of metal inside), replace it with the exact same fuse type. Radio Shack and your corner electron...
