Well I’ve just taken the AC Adapter out - I’ll let you know if a the replacement works once I’ve purchased it - Which I am hesitant to buy in case that’s not the problem.

The printer is barely 2 years old and barely used, I shouldn’t be experiencing this problem of the printer not turning on.

Canon you need to get your act together if you would like to stay in business, I’m seeing a lot of comments on this problem over a range of different printer models - Mine is a Pixma iX6860.
