Won't switch on.

My printer won't switch on at all. I have checked the fuse and supply, all OK. Did it a couple of weeks ago, and suddenly switched on after several minutes.

    Haven't used mine for a while. Get a brief flash of green when hitting the on-off switch, but won't switch on. Is the switch itself had it?

Your expert reckoned it was definitely the mains cable, but in fact I bought a new one, still no luck, and the machine has definitely died it final death. I am buying a new A3 printer (some expense!).
Thanks anyway.

Printer wont switch on

Try to plug the printer into a different known working power outlet in the wall. Bypass any power surge devices or power strips - these tend to draw away power from the printer.

IT Won't power up.

Possible failure of the main power supply unit which is a switch mode power supply.( SMPS).
You need to disconect the power supply to the printer and open the panel to check the SMPS unit.

Please check on the link below for tips to check the SMPS unit. If this is not possible check with a power supply unit to confirm before you order.

HP LaserJetIIIP - just won't switch on - cable and fuse OK

I can't believe that someone is still using one of the first LaserJet printers I got certified on!!! If you really want to gut the machine, there is a fuse in the power supply that could have blown. It is also possible that the power supply has finally died on its own after all of these years. You may just want to check the output voltages first to make sure of the status. If some voltages are present and not others, the fuse is still good, but the output circuitry is shot, in which case you would need to get a replacement power supply (if they are even available anymore).

Be careful with the disassembly process. The plastic clips may be brittle after almost 2 decades and could easily snap apart.

Ricoh 1027 copier no powew at all

The problem may be one of the internal fuses. Whip the side panels off (with the machine unplugged of course) and check the fuses on the power supply boards.

Screenwriter3 stalls at startup

I had a similar problem a couple weeks ago. We found that for some reason the printer was on "Pause" on our main network PC. This was of course effecting the whole network. Hope this helps!

Replace the power switch. A fairly standard switch type. You may get one off ebay or similar site. If push came to shove, you could just replace the power input assy.
