First thing to try is unplugging power cord for five minutes, to see if it clears.
When it is the fuse the unit does not start at all (no light), try the unplugging, open all doors and close them back, after power surge some of the sensor can be stuck on error message.
If it does not clear the error you need to call a technician. He will connect a computer with code reader to the copier to diagnose the problem, in case of internal error.

MFC-8710DW has no power


If your Brother machine does not appear to have power,then check whether or not the date and time appear on your Brother machine's LCD. If anything is displayed on your Brother machine's LCD, then it is most likely receiving power.If your Brother machine's LCD is blank, continue to Step 2.
Verify the Brother machine's power cord is connected securely to the power outlet. If you are using a surge protector, extension cord, or power switch, disconnect it and plug the Brother machine directly into the wall outlet.
Please note Brother strongly recommends that you connect your machine to a surge protector.Because To protect your investment against power surges and lightning,
In particular, we suggest that you use a surge protector that is compatible with both standard A.C. power cords and telephone line cords. Surge protectors equipped with telephone jacks will assist in insulating your machine from any power surge that might travel through a telephone line.
If the Brother machine is turned OFF, its LCD will be blank. Please make sure the Brother machine is powered ON by pressing and holding the On/Off or Power Save key. This key is located in the upper-right corner of the control panel.
If your Brother machine's LCD is still blank, connect it to a completely different, known working power outlet. If the Brother machine powers up, then the problem is related to the original outlet.
-OR-
Confirm the power outlet is working by plugging another known working device (a lamp, radio, etc.) directly into the same outlet. If the other device does not work, the problem is related to that power outlet. If a wall switch controls the outlet, verify that the switch is ON.
If your Brother machine still will not power on, please contact Brother Customer Service.

When I turn the machine on I hear the machine on see a the screen light up for approx. 1/2 minute then the machine shuts down all on its own.


It could be one of several issues.
1st: Have you tried plugging into a different outlet on a different circuit breaker?
2nd: Have you tried a different power cord?
3rd. Has there been any power surge/storm before the issue manifested itself?
4th: Does the fuser feel warm at all?
If all the above have been done and you're confident those have been answered properly, then we go to the next possible cause:
I suspect there might have been some sort of damage to the ECU (Electronic Control Unit) board. Not a cheap fix!

Following a power cut, my HL2142 has all lights flashing. Can't fix it. Help.


A power surge most likely damaged your printer. Printers are a cheap item and getting it repaired would most likely not a cost effective solution.
To prevent power surge problem you need to connect all your computer equipment and printer to a power board with a built-in surge protection then plug this power board into the mains outlet.

Lights flashing on op panel and code 00729c98


Remove it from the surge protector and plug it directly into the wall. This may prevent a problem that when the printer goes into standby, the surge protector stops it from returning to full power.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy New Year!

Thanks, Joe

I have a gateway desktop computer. Recently moved


Before you actually replace the power supply, check some other things first:
1. Wall socket
2. Power strip/surge protector
3. Power cable
4. On the back of the computer, where the power cable plugs into, is the red switch set to 115? It should be 115.
5. Make sure that the power cable is not connected to a regular extension cord. Power cable must plug directly into a surge protector that is not daisy-chained to another power strip, surge protector, or normal (household) extension cord. Surge protector must be directly plugged into wall socket.

If none of the above solve the problem, open up the case and ensure that all power connections are secure. Also check ALL other components' connections. Any loose connections can cause problems for you.

If everything is secure and the problem persists, replace the power supply.

After power surge, canon I9900 printer will not turn on?


You can try to power up with the printhead out, that sometimes causes it to not power up. Otherwise that machine is fried since you can't get a replacement logic pcb anymore.

Canon PIXMA ip4500 will not turn on


Sounds like the power outage was a power surge and destroyed your printer, especially if your printer was not plugged into a power surge protector strip. Check with others in your apartment to see if they experienced the same. If so, your landlord may be responsible and can put in a claim. If your printer is still under warranty, contact Canon. Also, check to see if this item is covered by tenant insurance, if you have coverage. Hope this helps.
