I hope this is the right forum for this question. I have an HP psc 1200 series all-in-one printer. It is 1 1/2 years old. It has always worked great. It gets power through a power surge protector. I always unplug the surge protector from the wall outlet when I'm out of town for some time. When I plugged it back in, my computor will work, but my printer won't even blink. I've unplugged it from the surge protector, from everything, tried different outlets, nothing gives it power. Does the usb cord have anything to do with power to the printer? I've tried removing and replugging it, too. Any help will be appreciated, I don't want to replace a 1 1/2 year-old printer. I'm running Win98SE.

2,

The USB cable has nothing to do with the external Power. Is the Power Cord detachable?

If yes, make sure it is secure at the printer end. Also try another cable.

Perhaps the Printer is internally fused. Hopefully with a user replaceable fuse!!!

Have you checked your User Manual's "Trouble Shooting Procedures"???

I would first assume a power supply failure in the printer or it's power cable. Certainly not a computer issue if no lights come up.
