Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Does any sign of life, any light or indicator power light or pilot light, appear on the printer?

Try re-seating the power cord at both ends. Try a different outlet altogether to plug its power cord into. Press the Power switch firmly. - Any results?

I just tried another outlet. we tested the outlet that it is plugged into and it is getting power. it is as if there is no power. I tried opening the door on the front. Pressed and held the on off button. It worked fine yesterday and today there is nothing.
Technician: Russell H., Printer and Office Tech replied 10 months ago

No lights, no activity, nothing. That is a problem for sure... let me check on options for this case, circuit breakers, main fuses, anything of the sort. Meanwhile, check the length of the cord for fraying, severe bending, cuts, breaks, strains, bulges (which can mean breaks inside the outer casing, too)... starting where it goes into the printer, and along its length to the plug. (This will make sure you have the right cord plugged in, of course...also.)

Also: 1. is the blue power light On ?

2. open the roll cover, see if the printer suddenly comes to life...?...

3. look inside... opening all easily opened covers. Any lights anywhere, perhaps a green light near where the power cord goes into the printer?

4. check near where the power cord goes into the printer... any switch, or push-button, there? if so, check that - if it is a sliding switch - it is not set to '240' or '220 V' or the like. (If a sliding switch is set to '120' or '115' or '110', then leave it as it is.)

Let me know what you find out, please.

I think it's safe to say that, once the things I suggested have been checked on and done, the power supply for this printer might need replacing. It seems they do fail fairly often-enough that it is mentionable as the first thing to try replacing.

The power supply is, according to one HP page, the "CQ890-67089 AmpXL 5V Power Supply SV".
