Re: i need help
This can happen because of an overvoltage when power comes back. All you can do is unplugging power cable for five minutes, and connecting back sometimes. If this does not work, then the problem is often the power supply unit. On printers with external power adapter you just replace it. I think MX700 does not have an external power adapter, therefore you may need to call a technician. You find the number to get repair service on your owner manual, check also your guaranty terms.

It is likely the device was damaged by the power surge when power was restored, this is for sure if it was connected to surge protector. Most power suppliers will pay for damage from this type of power outage. Contact them and ask.
You sure it was an outage and not a surge? Check for damaged or blown components inside the printer. Make sure all power conections are snug. Try a different power strip. If all else fails, contact EPSON (or whoever the hell makes this thing)
Try this solution. * Turn your printer off. * Hold in the
circular button on the front panel of your printer. * Turn your
printer back on. * When the drum light is lit by itself let go of the button. * Hold in the
circular button on the front panel again. * Once the
Alarm light comes on, let go of the button. Your printer should now be reset.
Your printer may have experienced damage to electronic components with the outage, especially if due to a lightning strike causing the outage. You should have a shop troubleshoot and decide if it will need a new board, such as a formatter/logic board.
In all probability that Power Outage caused a massive Spike or Surge on your power line. This has affected this unit. It doesn't take much to cause this type of thing and is quite common. It may be repairable, however these days buying a new one is often a better option. If you do go the repair route, go to a reputable place, & please ensure you get a firm "Quote" not an "Estimate" for repair.
If this happened after a power outage and not a hit/drop then it's probably fried the board to the hard disk, you can often get another board from the same model drive and fix it, by swapping the boards over.
Definitely the fuser got problem. This can be confirm by pressing the Go button and only the Toner LED will light up.
What had happen was right after the power blackout the fuser has fused together both rollers (heating drum and rubber roller) where the paper pass through in between the rollers. Since there was a power blackout, the printer fan has stop functioning and the heat was unable to disperse out from the printer. Suggest to improve on design to disperse heat using aluminium cage in case of power blackout.
Who ever has a Brother HL-2040 should definitely use together with a UPS.
