Why is the printer not turning on?

I bought this printer last year and never touched it or took it out of the box until now. The printer is brand new. I set up the internet connection without any problem. However, I started printing and all of a sudden, the printer turned off by itself. I tried turning it back on but would not turn on. I even tried changing plugs to see if the plug is the problem. What can I do to fix this printer?

Is this a good question?

When my school closed back in March I wrapped up my printer and kept it safe. Now it will not turn on at all and I have tried everything.

Chosen Solution

1- Unplug AC cable

2- Hold Power button for 5 seconds (Keep holding it)

3- Plug AC while you hold Power button

4- Wait 10 more seconds and Power should come on

If that does not work after 2-3 tries, return it to the store or toss it out.

the issue is with the main board. there are 2 transistors that are broken down in your main board. had it replaced. second step is to manual clean your printhead by technicians and use it otherwise you end up with the same issue again and again.
