Canon IPixma 4200 Won't Power On (occassional)

Printer works fine when it works but every several months or so, it will fail to power on even though there is power at the outlet...I have even checked with a volt meter at the printer end of the power cord. The switch doesn't light even when held in. This situation may last for anywhere from a few hours to several days. Anyone ever hear of this problem? How can I open the case to access the back of the switch? (Case has no screws or other fasteners)

Go on an elimination hunt. Try connecting to a new power outlet altogether. If no go, try turning off and removing all cords, usb etc, reconnect. Then try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer to see if this corrects it. Post agian if no good.

Why isn't it powering up and all lights are staying on?


Check all the cables and make sure that they are plugged in tightly. After that I can't help you without more information.

Power off the printer and wait for 2 minutes.
Power the printer back up and access it thru the PC controls software and try to print something that way.

I have a canon IP 4200 printer. The ink cartridge light on the Magenta ink cartridge doesn't work so it won't accept/recognize that a new ink cartridge has been installed. Is this something that...


It sounds as though you have a break in the carriage ribbon cable. A new carriage would hopefully cure it but its just possible the logic board has failed and is not sending any signal to the magenta ink tank. Its certainly repairable but you would need to know the costs and the labour charge to see if its worthwhile.

Our Canon jx210p fax keeps saying "chk printer


CHK PRINTER 5100 / SEE MANUAL
Cause Action Movement of the Holder is blocked. Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the Holder from moving, then turn off the machine and turn it back on again. There may be an obstruction that is not allowing the Holder mechanism to move. Check for any obstruction (paper clip, small object, etc.) and also that the protective tape are removed from the FINE Cartridge. Check also for a paper jam and clear the jam if necessary . Then press [Stop/Reset] and start again. The FINE Cartridge may be defective. Press [Stop/Reset]. Reinstall the FINE Cartridge (see Prepare the Machine ) and start again.In either case, if the error does not clear, try unplugging the fax. Wait several minutes, then plug it back in. Also, try replacing the FINE Cartridge with a new one. An error requiring servicing might have occurred. Turn off the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. After a while, plug the power cord of the machine back in and turn on the machine. If the same error occurs, contact the service center.

Will not turn on MP830


I just had the same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm here on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume that it took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge)then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is 3 weeks old, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me as well.
