It could be "sort of" either. If the power supply fan is labouring or stopped, it will overheat very quickly and force a shutdown or blow a fuse. Because of the latter usually this will only happen a few times, and then perminently. If the cpu fan bushings are clogged with jam, and it is labouring, the cpu temps will shoot up and trigger a bios level shutdown. So you need to do some checking, and perhaps some cleaning. Usually if there are motherboard problems, you will get beeping indications of device checks. If there is no picture, then the vga card could be loose...but again, beeping for sure. loose power cord connect or worn - problems, not always a beep here. Check a cables and connections but the first checks are likely the root.
1. Disconnect the power cord from back of printer ( while printer is powered on ) 2. wait for 10 seconds 3. hold and press the Power button and connect the Power Cord. 4. Release the Power button after 3 seconds 5. Follow the Instructions on the printer screen.
Later try to shutdown it, it should not give the message again
This sounds like you have a major drain on your USB line which you must find now or you may lose4 your power supply. It's unusual for people to have more than 4 or 5 devices on the USB chain. Do you have more than this and are they some real power consumers. A DVD or Hard Drive are power suckers.
If you remove a few things for a little while and it works fine, upgrade your Power Supply.
Got the same problem following a message "Printer ink failure" code 0xc19a0035. Instructions say to shut down using button on/off. But printer refused to shutdown. After 30 minutes, I disconnected power cable. Removed cartridges. Reloaded cartridges. Reconnected power cable and got "Improper shutdown" message with continuous cycle. Solution: 1. While the printer is still turned on, unplug all cables and cords at the back of the printer. 2. Unplug the power cord also from the wall outlet... 3. Wait for two minutes. 4. Reconnect power cord to the wall outlet first. 5. Press and hold the pound (#) and six (6) buttons. 6. While holding down the two buttons, reconnect the power cord to the back of the printer and after two seconds, release pound and six buttons. 7. Turn on the printer if it turns off... and it's fixed.
8. Be patient to let printer run its tests.
