Printer not working at all

I noticed the other day that my printer was not powered on. I tried to turn it on, unplugged and replugged all connectors, checked the power supply on the surge protector and reinstalled the software all to no avail. Is there anything else I can do or can I buy a new power cord?

Remove the surge protector, plug your printer direct to the wall outlet and try to power on again. try to apply a bit more pressure on the power button or try holding in down for 5 seconds, temporarily unplug the computer connection too.... if it still will not power on, try a different power cord.... if it still will not turn on with a new power cable, then check your warranty status with lexmark, this one needs to be replaced or repaired

My printer will not turn on it worked yesterday and i've done nothing different. could it be the "brick"?

Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer.

Check if it's warm or cold. It could be a defective power adapter issue. Unplug and replug the power cord into the power outlet to reset it. Bypass any surge devices or power strips. Replug the power adapter into the printer. The printer should automatically turn on, otherwise press Power button.
If problem continues, then it could be a faulty power adapter problem. I'd suggest you to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Good morning, i was printing and the printer shut

Try to unplug the power adapter from the printer. Unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall. Replug the power cord after at least 10 seconds - bypass any power surge devices or power strips. Replug the power adapter into the printer. Your printer should automatically power on, otherwise, press the power button. If the printer still won't power on, please contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

Our canon MP560 printer will not turn on - it was plugged into a surge protector and we have tried moving the plug to alternate outlets just to make sure that wasn't the!

This is what worked for me. I had a similar setup and could not get the printer to turn on. Remove the power supply from the back of the machine. It is a very simple process: pull apart two small plastic connectors with your fingers to remove power supply. Disconnect internal blue cable from power supply.

Replug blue cable and be sure it is plugged in tight.
Push power supply back into place, be careful of blue cable when pushing it back into printer.
Plug in and printer just may work...good luck!

5100 is a carriage error, usually caused by grease on the clear encoder strip behind the carriage assembly. You can clean the strip with a damp Q-tip just damp with plain water.

Grinding noise in cartridge for hp laserjet 1200 series printer. I replced cartridge and still hear noise sometime worse and then not so loud.

I have the same problem and I know what is causing my problem. It's not in the cartridge. You're laser scanner is going to go bad. I had the problem 3 months ago. I would only make the grinding noise when it powered up. Printing was okay. I don't use the printer that much. Then about a week ago I notice only the bottom diagnostic light was on. I unplug the power and powered it back up. The grinding noise got louder and wouldn't stop. I unplugged the printer an replugged. Same thing.

I was bored (christmas day) and decided to open my printer to see what the root cause problem was. I removed several screws and once I got all the printer naked (removed all the plastic outside). I plugged it in an tried to listen where the problem was. I notice a vibration at the laser scanner (top black piece). I unplugged the printer. I unplugged the power source to the laser scanner. Replugged the power and saw all the gears move with no noise. Powered off. Replugged laser scanner. Powered on. Noise back. Defective laser scanner. The laser scanner has a ribbon cable, and four purple wires going to it, oh yeah there is a big yellow warning label, so you can't miss it. I hope this helps.

HP 7410 - No display and orange exclamation point is lit

Unplug your power supply and leave it off for like ten minutes, then replug it and see if it will initiate itself, if not it sounds like serious malfunction.
