Default on most systems is an industry standard 4 seconds. However your computer is never really without power even if you unplug it. You need to unplug it and leave it unplugged for at least 30 seconds or so to make sure all capacitors discharge. then make sure the switch on the back is on then turn it on.

Turn the power supply back on now... if that doesn't work, unplug the power cord then plug it back in and make sure the power supply button is in the ON position before attempting to turn ON the computer tower. You should NEVER have to flip the power supply switch to turn off a computer. Even if it LOCKS up tight, you can "Press & HOLD" the power button in for roughly 6 seconds and the computer WILL turn off. I guarantee you it will turn off that way... go ahead and try it once you get the system on. If these things won't work, you may have fried your power supply, but I highly doubt it. I'm guessing something is still off.

Unplugged it. After looking for a new tv online I decided to try getting it to work. So, plugged it back in and held down the power button, a red light came on, held down the power button again and an orange light came on, held down power button again and green light came on and tv powered on. This was simply a case of trial and success!

Just what do you mean by Power Button not working? Is the Power Button depressed and won't return, is the button out and won't go in? Do you have power to the speakers? Or What?

Ink absorber full, ip2600

I have a ip2600 that has had the waste ink absorber msg come up twice. After trying several recommended fixes involving pressing the Resume key twice then 4 times, etc., I've found the perfect solution. Start by cleaning the waste pads with tweezers, etc.
1. Press Power Off
2. Disconnect Power Cord
3. At SAME TIME, Press & HOLD Power Key while re-connecting Power cord
4. Release the Power button
5. Press the power button again
This will work!

2) While holding the Power button, release the Resume/Cancel button. (Do not release the Power button.)

3) While holding the Power button, press the Resume/Cancel button three times, and then release the Power and Resume/Cancel buttons. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.) During initialization, the LED blinks in green.

4) When the LED stops blinking and lights in green, press the Resume/Cancel button the 4 times. (Each time the Resume/Cancel button is pressed, the LED lights alternately in either orange or green, starting with orange.)

5) Press the Power button. The LED lights in green, and the
selected function is performed. (When the operation completes, the printer returns to the menu selection mode automatically.)
