    The power cut appears to have killed my printer/scanner. It won’t switch on or off now. Even though it was connected to a surge protected power socket. Very annoying.

    Fortunately, after reading up on a forum – unplugging computer and disconnecting USB lead then giving it a few minutes and plugging back in using a different socket – has cured my printer. Will be putting it back into surge protect socket once I know that the power problem has been fixed!

    Ahh the old switch it off and then back on never fails.
