I was just printing out my E/ticket for a flight,it printed the first page then stopped/no power??
Expert:  Electronics Pete replied 1 year ago.

Have you checked that all cables are securely connected?

Have you tried connecting the printer to another power supply socket?

Do you have a voltmeter available to carry out some tests on the power supply adapter?

I have had it turned off for bit whilst doing the payment thing,i just turned it back on and there is a alarm light on

Ok, can you try turning it off again, then check for any stuck pieces of paper inside it, wait a couple of minutes, then turn it on again and let me know the status before you try printing again?
