My Canon IP3000 would not turn. It turned out to be the Print Head. It had burnt out and gone short circuit. This caused the built in power supply to shut down, hence, the printer appears dead.
Now, how do you get the Print Head out when it is locked down on the left side (your right side if facing the printer)? Open the top lid and inside you will see a chrome sharft, about 10mm in diameter, that the Print Head slides along. Put you finger under this bar and lift it 3 to 4mm. It's under spring tension. The Print Head will also rise, releasing it from the lock. With your other hand, slide the Print Head to your left. You can now release the bar and move the Print head freely.
To confirm the fault, try to power up the printer with the Print Head removed. Don't forget to put the lock bar down first, to stop it hitting the cover when it tries to go home.

Try removing your printer cartridges and then the print head from the printer. If the printer powers up with the print head removed, then the print head is either shorted or clogged. If it's shorted out then you will need a new print head (usually cheaper to just buy a new printer). If you can clean the print head without damaging it, sometimes it will work again. Usaully a good 24 hour soak in alcohol or a cleaning solution will work.

I found a vista driver for a Pixma ip 2600 and downloaded it. My printer now works but the black ink doesn't. Don't know if it's a driver issue or otherwise. It might be worth a try for you. There are no available vista drivers for the ip3000.
