Why won't my printer turn on?
My printer is plugged in, but there is no light showing it is on.
The Canon Pixma iP3600 is a compact inkjet photo printer that weighs 12.3lbs and is 17.0”(W) x 11.7”(D) x 6.0” (H). This wired printer was released as part of Canon's Pixma series in 2008.
This issue may be due to any of the following:
1. The power cord is not connected to outlet
Solution: Before attempting to fix the power button, make sure the cord is plugged into a working outlet
2. The power is not on
Solution: Turn on the power by pressing the large square button on front right side of printer.
3. Your printer has a faulty power connection
Solution: Reconnect to power supply. Try unplugging the power cord, pausing for 15 seconds before reconnecting to wall.
4. Your printer is connected to a bad wall outlet
Solution: Utilize a different wall outlet.
Please refer to this device's troubleshooting page for more information.
Faced similar situation... It was working an hour ago and stopped turning on all of sudden... Checked power cable... Tested the cable by putting it in my cam charger... It was fine... Shaked power point as sometime it's due to loose connection... Still no fix... Finally shakes the cartidge box gently... Cleaned the printer.... Connected power cable again and this time it does turn on... What a relief.... Try it... If it works for you as well... Good Luck
You can reset your printer by following this:
1) Turn the printer off
2) Press and hold the STOP button for 3 seconds.
3) Then press the ON button and release the STOP button.
4) While holding the ON button, press the STOP button 5 times.
5) Release all buttons.
6) LCD Screen should turn on and be blank. After a minute or better turn the printer off once more.
This should be the reset.
I suspect they engineered these to fail after so many years. I wouldn't often use the printer but when I used it I needed it. The ink would mysteriously disappear even when I wasn't using it and I had to buy ink cartridges for it often. So that is what I was doing. I turned the printer on, opened the ink door and checked the number on the cartridges. Closed the door then went into the other room to buy the ink. When I returned to the machine the power was off and I could not turn it back on. Changing outlets, reinserting the power cord, and holding down the power button to no avail. It was meant to fail. I will never buy another printer or product for that matter from Canon.
I had my Pixma MG 25505 not turning on, only orange flashlight being on, not flashing. I unplugged it, removed the upper cover and unplugged all the wires and tapes connected to main board and plugged them again. It worked! I hope it’ll help someone reading this in the future :)
