Two days ago I noticed there had been a brief power outage: my computer was complete shut down instead of being in the sleep mode as I'd left it. No problem. I turned it on and all is well. . . with the computer.

But when I wanted to use my printer (an old HP Photosmart C5180 All-In-One) I found I could not get it turned on. In the past I'd just have to press and hold the power button until it began its start up process.
That doesn't work now.

I've checked the power cord and also tried unplugging it for a few minutes, and this also had no effect. I can't find any 'reset' button, but don't think that would help anyway, because there's obviously just no electrical activity.

Anyone have any ideas?

Granted, it's old (2006) and in some respects is limpin' along i.e., it's technically not supposed to even work with Snow Leopard, but somehow it does. at least for most of the functions.

Thank you I never think of checking YouTube for some reason


Actually, I'd already done all those steps, except the one about separating the
module from the power cord, which is where the resetting occurs, according
to this video.

Many thanks, PL
