I have same problem.
I found part of my problem.
Fuse 2 (5amp slo-blo) in the low voltage power supply was blown.
Replaced it.
Turn power back on and the component R3 (which is an inrush current limiting thermistor # 10D-13) in the same power supply, blew apart and blew the same fuse.

I don't know if something down stream is causing R3 to blow up or if something is bad in that power supply or I just have a bad R3.

I'm gonna try to get some of the R3's before I do any more testing.

There are internal fuses - or it could be a failed PSU

My focus 2.0 TDCI starts good but after about 20 seconds of drive cuts out and stays powerless for about 5 seconds and then suddenly the power returns . When I keep it full of diesel the car is fine but...

I am assuming when you say powerless you mean electrical power so go to your power distribution box disconnect the cable after you disconnect the battery cables clean all connections with oooo steel wool then spray and wipe clean using wd 40 or pb blaster to get all the acid corrosion off then spray the battery post again and the distribution box stud put it back on and tighten then put the battery cables on and make sure everything is tight this should do it the cables or distribution box stud nut if loose will kill all the power after a few minutes because the gap now increases and contact is lost good luck and if this was not what you meant please post back in comments and we'll see what the problem is remember to be specific about the symptoms Stephen

This could be due to various reasons.

1. Make sure that printer is connected directly to a wall outlet and not to any surge protector.

2.We can perform a cold reset or restore the printer to factory defaults. If the printer is connected to a network then make sure that we make a note of the network settings since the settings will not be the same after performing the reset.

If this is the same problem I had, mine went for 2 weeks, everyday with me pushing the on button and it stood there like a giant powerless paperweight. Then one day it just suddenly turned on, unfortunately it turned on with RRoD. I'm actually familiar with repairing the RRoD problem, however its been a month now and everything i've tried it just stays on RED Ring of Death.
So sorry this isn't a solution, but if you be patient, maybe yours will turn back on without RRoD
