Printer won't power on after power outage

  1. Hoping someone can help. My printer/scanner/copier Brother DCP J-315W was on when the power went off during the recent Sydney storms. The printer is about 3 years old and connects wirelessly to the PC. The power went out at 12.30 am so I just went to bed and when I woke up everything was back on except the printer which has no power. I have tried pulling the plug out of the machine and waiting 15 seconds, and trying to reboot the pc, modem and printer together but had no success.
    It seems dead. Do I need another printer or is there a solution?

    No surge protection? Power outages from storms can cause no damage or high damage to electrical/electronic circuits. There may be a blown fuse inside, but it sounds like it is time to buy a new printer

    You can try with all resetting options provided by the manufacturer or try to connect it to a different power outlet, however, is very likely that you'll have to get another printer.
