Question about Canon i860 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I860 power supply apparently bad

My i860 quit working in the middle of a job. It shut off and won't restart. I took out the power supply and measured voltage. Information on the piece says it should be putting out 24 volts. Mine was doing 7 volts. I can't find a replacement power supply, and it's not worth taking to a repair center. Are there any other options?

    Two weeks later, I've had no solution other than try to find a new power adapter. They must be rare (except at a high price), but a friend has one on the way.

    1. I have the same problem : printer just stopped working; does not even turn on. I brought it to a repair person who suggested I get a new power supply. But I have no idea who has them.

Same problem here, 7 & 14 volts instead of 24 & 27...  No luck finding one either, except for one in germany on ebay that doesn't ship overseas.

Power supply

Measuring the voltages of a PC power supply is not a job for your basic DIY'er, and needs specialist equipment.
I would try swapping out the PSU with another known good unit

My whirlpool calypso washer just quit working no codes no power just dead. GVW9959KQ2

Won't Power Up
  • 120VAC electrical supply.
Check voltage supply to washer.
  • Open AC cord.
Check for voltage at the power cord connection to the line filter.
  • Line filter open.
Check voltage into and out of line filter.
  • Machine control board open.
With the washer off but connected to the AC outlet, measure the AC voltage between Pins 4 and 2 at connector P16.

I would recommend checking the power supply first but it is possible the board may have gone as well.

Usually random shut offs or restarts are power related

Power supply failure? Changed cord and outlet. Still no ready/light.

The power supply is internal to the printer. These voltages are internally generated. Unless there is an outside supply it is not repairable without a tech assistance.

Power to printer but printre will not turn on as there a reset

Are you using a volt/ohm meter to determine that the transformer is supplying power to the printer?

If so, what is the input (measured at the receptacle) to the transformer?
What is the output of the transformer and is it supplying the correct amount of voltage (output voltage requirement is normally found imprinted on the body of the transformer or in the technical specifications section of the printer's manual.

obvious your power supply internal supply blown a fuse or in shut down mode due to short. I guess since you have a light the 5v supply is working but power supply makes many voltages to work your set properly probable at least 5 diffent voltages. one or more maybe shorted ...shutting down the power supply's higher voltages. it gonna take a tech to fix it. good luck

Power supply

you are so lost... a short in anything after the power supply will shut down the horizontal driver signal. first check to see if horizontal output transitor is shorted. If not it should have about 110 volts dc on it. if not go back to Power suppy ...many things start here...check to see if you micros got power a 5v heatseeked regulater is common bad. also the startup circuits can be the power suppy. I look for a kit online for power supplies ...they give you about every that fails. or you can start buying bet it is take to a professonal for you my freind havent a clue. CrazyLarry
