Hi, I'm Sudipto. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP

Expert:  Sudipto replied 11 days ago.

The problem you are facing can be caused due to few reasons, one if the power cord is defective, two if the cord is loose, three is the internal power supply is defective and four if the main board is defective, now the cheapest solution for this problem replacing the cord, only if it is defective otherwise in case of the other two reasons, the repairing cost will be more than the price of a new printer, as the printer is four years old, now you can try to connect the printer to any other wall outlet to rule out the cause of defective wall outlet. Let me know, if you need any further help otherwise, please remember to give a positive rating, as that is the only way I am compensated for my time and effort.
