Printer Problem - Epson DX8400
Printer suddenly stopped printing - loss of mains power. I checked to see the power cable was properly connected, that the fuse in the plug was ok and plugged the power cable into another mains socket, still the printer will not come on. I have you any suggestions.
Thank you.

Hello Richard. Still no success. No signs of life in the printer. Is possible that the power unit inside the printer has failed?
yes, this is what has occurred and will need to be replaced
we have ruled out all other causes and its not the mainboard else you still get power but a fault code.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the printer to have this replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
