Hi. Welcome to justanswer.

Was there any kind of power outage ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

I am afraid that the power circuitry of the printer has gone bad. You will need to change the power board. It will cost you around £30-40.

Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Hold down Resume button and press Power button once

Then the Power circuit pcb is the fault for sure

who is capable of repairing the printerand and at what overall cost circa - I live 15 miles north west of Stirling Scotland
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Since it has been about 2 year so it is not under warranty. So you can take it to any local repair shop and get it repaired.

There are many options available which you can check here. CLICK HERE TO VIEW

There are no Canon Repair Center in Scotland.

The pcb will cost around £25-30 plus the service charges by the repair center
