Samsung scx 4623fn printer, will not switch on when power button

Resolved Question:

Samsung scx 4623fn printer, will not switch on when power button pressed. connected to my laptop via usb cable. used to work fine then gradually would not switch on, then would turn itself on even if the power button had not been pressed whilst working on the laptop! Now dead. Mains power to the printer is good.

In my experience the condition you have described says bad power switch. the turning itself on really seals the deal. That means there is a short in the switch which has gradually burned through to an open, leaving you unable to turn on the printer.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news

No mains switch, just a soft switch to electronics.

there is still a contact in there that isnt making contact anymore, or the power controller board has gone, that too would cause these results
