Brother printer will not turn on
Asked Aug 9, 2010, 07:39 AM
I have a Brother MFC-5840 CN (printer/scanner/copier/fax) that will not turn on. We had a lightning storm recently that resulted in the cable splitter needing to be replaced in order to get phone and internet service back. Cable television continued to be working.
The printer went off but was making a clicking noise from the back that progressively was getting faster and faster so we unplugged it. When we plug it in (the outlet is funtional) it will not turn on when the on/off button is pressed. After several minutes, it starts to make the same noise. There is no connection in the back of the printer to remove the power cord to try and replug it in from there.
I am wondering if lightning killed it! Any thoughts to try?
