My printer won't power on [Canon PIXMA iP4500], and I think it's dead. There is no printer movement at all. It has been working fine since 2008, until a few days ago.

When I press the power button, the power light won't even turn on. However, if I unplug the power cable for around 5 minutes to drain the power, then plug it back in, I can get the power light to turn on if I hold down the power button. But as soon as I release the power button, the power light turns back off.

Has anyone experienced this problem before? Is there a fix?

i figured out the problem was caused by a bad printhead. i managed to fix it by replacing the printhead with a used one that i bought online. it was weird that this was causing the printer to not power on.

note: even though i replaced the printhead, i still had to unplug the power and wait for the power to drain before the printer will power on normally again.
