My printer, an HP PSC 1410 All-in-One, will not turn on after leaving it unplugged for two weeks (I was out of town and always unplug everything to save on electrical costs). It's connected through a power module, and I have tried unplugging the power cord from the power module and the power module from the printer, and reconnecting them all again. I have tried different outlets, and it will simply not turn on. I have also tried disconnecting the USB cable that runs from the printer to the computer, just in case it was interfering in some way. Does anyone know how this could have happened, and what I can do to fix it?

What Mac OS X software will let me scan things using my second hand Canon ImageRunner C5800
networked printer/scanner? There's PC software available, but I'd rather not have to run XP just to scan things. Note: if I sound clueless I am; if I'm missing something obvious then please tell me.

I have a whole bunch of Epson 1400 ink cartridges that expired on 01/2009.

Up until recently my printer worked fine, but today a document wouldn't go through, so I tried clearing the print queue, etc., and then finally decided to reinstall the printer. I removed the printer, but it's still listed in the control panel and Windows will not let me reinstall. How can I completely clear it and get it working again? [more inside]

Just returned from fabulous 2 week holiday in New York. I Brought back Epson Artisan 800 All-in-One Printer from Staples costing $230. Unfortunately, I cannot use it in U.K., unless I plug voltage converter/transformer products. Has anyone else bought this set over there with more success?
Any advice \ information appreciated.
Please specify me What exact voltage converter product to buy & where to buy it from USA online store. Thanks. [more inside]

College student looking to buy a laser printer. I've only needed to print papers in black ink during my past two years of college. But what's this - I can buy a color laser printer for the same price as a regular one? Are there any downsides to a rarely-used color roller?

I am using a Lexmark Z605 printer with a Mac OSX 10.5.4 laptop. When I try to print documents it doesn't give me several options (they are crossed out): color options, advanced layout, quality, or printer services. When I click on them (for example, color options) it says:
"The bundle 'ColorOptions' could not be loaded because it does not contain a version for the current architecture.
Contact the bundle's creator listed here for the latest version.
1.0.3 2000-2003 Lexmark International Inc."
What to do? Is the "current architecture" my laptop? [more inside]
