Solved!

cannot power on printer HP 8600 office jet pro

HP Recommended
HP 8600 office jet pro
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

The printer worked fine two days ago.  Don't ask me why I turned the power off, but I did.  Now I cannot get it to power on.  The plugs are all well seated, I have tried it in different outlets where I know there is power.  I have tried holding down the on/off button lightly, firmly, quickly, long hold.  Nothing happens.

Is there a fuse or something fixable that might have blown?  If it is an issue with the on/off button itself, is it even fixable?

 

Of course, it moved out of warranty a couple of months ago...figures.

 

Any help for this???

Welcome to the HP Community Forum.

 

I wish I had something positive to offer -- I should think switching off the printer would not put you in this kind of bind.  :Crying:

 

Perhaps something here will help:

I don't know why it wouldn't power up.  I persisted with unplugging, replugging, etc etc.  Eventually, it turned on.  Some kind of 'open' somewhere along the way but I felt like a Skinner pidgeon, randomly pecking and hoping for a reward.  

It's working now.  Thanks for replying.

The power supply may be a bit flakey.  That's a technical term.  Smiling.

 

You could also have a low voltage situation -- depending on where you are located, at at least here in the USA lately, there is a real possibility that the power is struggling to stay on.

 

Opinions vary on whether one should use a power strip on a printer -- if you think there is a power flux problem, then it might be useful to hook up the sensitive stuff to a decent UPS.  This could be overkill -- we use them in our home office; we live where we can have surges and low voltage issues even when the weather is not trying to rub us out.  Smiling.

 

Happy Printing!
