Is my power supply broken?


My beloved Epson Style Photo 1400 recently stopped turning on after having a "General Error" when trying to print (accompanied by flashing red ink and paper lights simultaneously). Now that it isn't turning on, when it is plugged in I can hear a faint intermittent beep coming from the back, between the power plug and the USB plug.

Can anyone help me identify what the problem is here, and how to get started with fixing it? I am guessing it has to do with the power supply, simply because the thing won't turn on....but correct me if I'm wrong!

Thank you!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It sounds like it could be the power supply. that would make sense. If you take the cover off then you can get a voltage tester and see if the power coming from the outlet is getting through the power supply...BUT BE CAREFUL...electricity is very dangerous so do not touch anything with it plugged in. Unplug printer, take covers off, be careful not to tough electronic boards as they can still retain power. Plug it back in then only tough it with voltage meter ends. DO not tough anything with your hands. Only do this if you feel comfortable doing it. take some pictures inside and post them so we can see close ups of the electrical boards. Look for burnt or blackened areas as those would be your problem. Also solder connections that have simply come apart. Below is some links to places to get parts.

This comes from OLDTURKEY03!!!! Thanks!

I am having the exact same problem. We'll try your solution and let you know how it goes. Thanks!


My Epson 1400 isn't powering up. I pulled it apart, so I could pull the power supply out. I don't see anything burnt and the capacitor's aren't swollen. The fuse looks good also. I'm new at using a multimeter, so I'm not sure as to where to touch the leads to test it.
