Nearly all later printers have circuits that stay 'alive' even with the power turned off. Try pulling the AC plug overnight' this should clear most stored errors that may still be present.

After power outage front display blinking "16".


I had a similar issue where after a power outage, the player would not power up.
I removed it from power and took the cover off looking for a fuse. Could not find anything so I put the cover back on and plugged it in and it worked. My theory is the electronics needed time to fully discharge in the circuits. I would leave it unplugged for about 24 hours. I left mine unplugged for several days. I hope this helps.

Epson wf-7520 power light, auto answer light & wi-fi light blink


As far as the wifi is concerned, try getting it connected to your home network. Once it gets connected, go into your network settings and try to get the IP address. If you can obtain that, you should be able to add a network printer using TCP/IP port. Also, see if you can factory reset the printer, and start the setup all over.

We had a power outage now the T.V. won't turn back on, there are no lights on or blinking. I can't get it to show any signs of life. What's the deal please help!


Unplug the set for 2 hours then plug it back in. After a power outage when the power returns it will sometimes send tvs into a dumb mode, unpluging will reset the tv to factory settings and it should run just fine

Hi,

Try this solution.

* Turn your printer off.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel of your printer.
* Turn your printer back on.
* When the drum light is lit by itself let go of the button.
* Hold in the circular button on the front panel again.
*
Once the Alarm light comes on, let go of the button.
Your printer should now be reset.

Hope this help you.

After a power outage my wd62525 won't restart.......the green timer light has been blinking for more than 24 hours HELP!! (I did try to reset, same blinking)


There is chance that the power outage might have damaged the power supply. It does happen, it's most common with storms. I recommend that you go to a shop and get that board checked

This same problem happened to my 55511 about two years ago. It appears to be a software issue. I ran the built in self test and it corrected the problem. Have you tried this?

Power went out and back on; now printer won't print


I had the same problem after a resent power outage. Here's what fixed mine.

Turn the power switch off.
Wait a 15-20 seconds
While holding the button on the front panel down turn the power switch on.
After the drum light comes on release the button wait then press the button again.
Turn the machine off then back on again and you should be back in business.

To prevent the problem in the future if you are not using the printer turn it off and if the power goes off while printing get the printer turned off before the power comes back.
