Can anyone tell me what size power adapter is used with the Ij300 printer? It doesn't say anywhere on the printer what the voltage and current requirement is and this printer was given to me without a manual.
The AC adapter for the COMPAQ IJ300 is the Class 2 Power Supply, Model DND-3005, INPUT 120-127V-50/60 Hz 350mA, OUTPUT 30V---500mA, PART # 70D0209, Assembled in China 9933 per my orignal adapter for the COMPAQ IJ 300.

Try this approach: 1. Remove the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer.2. Disconnect the power cord from the power source.3. Reconnect the power cord directly to the power outlet in the wall. Bypass any surge devices or power outlets.4. Re-plug the power adapter into the printer.5. If the printer won't automatically power on, press the power button on the printer operator panel. I hope this helps. Should the problem continue, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.
Try to remove the power adapter from the printer. Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall.
Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the printer into the power source (bypass any surge devices or power strips). Reconnect the power adapter into the printer. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.
I found this solution on another website, I suggest you give it a try.
Everything works fine since I installed Vista except for my printer a Compaq IJ300 which is a Lexmark Z11 in disguise. I installed the driver for the regular Z11 through the "Add Printer" but had problems.
Went to Lexmark site - downloaded drivers for Z11 Series ColorFine- working perfectly. So far I have no other problems with vista.
Something similar happened to me with a Lexmark P122 which uses the same cartridge. I believe Lexmark also makes your printer. Did you check the simple stuff first? Shut down your PC and printer, unplug your printer cable, check to be sure it's clean and in good shape on both ends. You can used canned air to blow out the connections. Remove the cartridge, don't touch the copper part with your hands but you can use a lint free cloth with isopropyl alcohol and lightly wipe clean all the copper contacts. Reinstall the cartridge and cable, start your PC and let it boot normally, then start your printer. If you have the same problem, it's probably the printer cartridge itself. On my P122, it turned out to be the printer cartridge. Probably some shorted lands. And that in turned caused my printer to fail permanently. Is there a light flashing on your printer in a short/long type of sequence? If you don't mind, can you check the power adapter (the black box connected to the electrical outlet and supplies power to your printer) and tell me what it says following the word OUTPUT?
