Question about Canon PIXMA iP4200 InkJet Photo Printer

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.

Failure of Printer to Print Color


Try using a new HP ink cartridge. I had the same problem with a printer I purchased off of CraigsList even though the ink level was good. I installed a new color HP ink cartridge and it printed without a problem.

Juicier will not work at all


Try the juicer on another circuit to see if the breaker failed altogether on the circuit you were using. It's possible that the machine is drawing more power than it should and may need to be checked by an appliance service dealer. An electrician can also check the power draw at the breaker to see if it is being overloaded. If the machine itself is defective, it should receive professional service. Good luck!

No power everything was fine then nothing when i got home is there any fuses to check in the microwave


There is a fuse under the cover, as well as a couple of safety thermostats that can cause a dead oven. It may also be that the power transformer for the control circuit board has failed. I've seen several Sharp ovens where the transformer died because of power surges. This would cause no display and no functions even though the oven has power. Also, did you make sure the outlet your oven is plugged into has power? If it's a GFI outlet it may need to be reset, or a circuit breaker in your electric service panel may have tripped.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Epson Stylus CS5800F Printer will not power on. Plugged into known working outlet, but no luck.


I had that same problem with my CX5800F. I tried it in several working outlets and shut down/started up many times. Tech support couldn't figure it out so they had me sent it back for a replacement. Several days later, before I packaged it up for shipment, I decided to test it out one more time, and it powered on! I sent for a replacement anyways. Since it's still under the 1-warranty, I'd suggest sending it back for a new one if all else fails. Good luck!

It started, then stopped!


Seem to be a power problem. Leave your printer unplugged a while. Connect it again and see if the power comes up. Check the power strip outlet, change it for a different one or connect the printer to another outlet on the wall. If still not working your printer needs to be serviced or replaced

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.
