Simple test to confirm the origin of the problem: disconnect all the cables except the power one, make sure the pc is closed and no memory cards are inserted then try to start the printer. If the printer doesn't start at all then the printer itself has a hardware defect.
The only thing you can check is the power pack: it's at the bottom of the printer, the power cable plugs in it. Take it out by unscrewing the 2 security screws, plug the power cable in it and in a mains socket then verify the voltage at the output contacts with a voltmeter. If no voltage is present then the power pack is dead and must be replaced. If the power pack is active then the printer itself is defective. In that case it will be more economically sound just to replace the printer - fixing it will cost you almost as much as a new one.

    Of course there is always a chance something on the printer has failed that damaged the power supply. So if you bother to buy a new power supply, you might immediately damage the new power supply plugging it in to the same printer. Is it worth the gamble? Humm...

The printer is switched on at the plug and all connected but the printer wont turn on when clicking the on/off button on the actual printer. what can i do?


Is there a power light on the power brick? if not make sure the power brick is plugged in all the way. Try plugging a lamp or a light in the socket and make sure the not the outlet.
Still having problems try a different outlet.
If there is power going to the printer make sure the connection between the power and the printer is firmly in.

Paper jam


Hi Good day!! Follow this method to remove your paper jam:

1. Check to make sure that the power cord is securely plugged into an active wall outlet if your printer is not turning on.

2. Make sure that the USB cable connecting your computer to your printer is securely connected if your printer powers on but will not perform a print job.

3. Remove a paper jam if the "Check Paper" light on the front of the printer is blinking. To do this, first turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the printer. Open the front cartridge door and locate the jammed paper. Gently pull the jammed paper toward you. Plug the printer back in and turn it back on.

4. Connect your printer to a different USB port on your computer if you are experiencing slow printing. The slowness could be due to a connection problem with your computer's USB port. After you've switched the port, try your print job again.

5. Make sure that a phone line is securely connected from a phone jack to your printer if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes.

6. Clean the scanner surface if your scans are blurry or have vertical white or black lines. To do this, spray the a soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner. Wipe the scanner glass with the cloth and then dry it with another clean lint-free cloth.

7. Hard reset the printer if you are having trouble solving your problem. Turn the printer off and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds and plug the cord back in. Power the printer on and try your job again.

8. Restart your computer if you can't solve your printing or scanning job. Sometimes restarting the computer can solve an unseen problem.

Cannot turn on the printer even if connections are ok ?


The only thing that could stop you from turning the printer on other than a broke printer is the power/power cord is not connected. The printer should turn on without a USB or parallel printer cable attached.

If no lights are showing when you try to power the printer, check the power connection in the back of the printer to ensure it is plugged in, check the plug into the adapter is connected and that the power cord's plug is connected to the wall outlet - if you have a power strip make sure it is turned on and the circuit breaker is not popped. Make sure that there is power to the outlet by plugging in something else to show it has power. If all of those check out ok and you have a meter, check for voltage at the power connector at the printer (pull the plug out of the printer and check voltage from inside the plug to outside the plug. It should be 18 vac.

If all of this is ok, there is something wrong inside the printer. Probably time for a new one as cost to repair is probably too high.
