The screen doesn't display any information
If there is no power, the screen will be dark and blank. If the power cable is not plugged in all the way, the machine will not turn on. Check to make sure that the printer is plugged in or has battery power. If the power light is not on, then power is not getting into the printer, and the power adapter or battery may be faulty and must be replaced. The easiest way to do this may be a whole sale replacment of the circuitry of the printer, demonstrated here: Circuit Board Replacement
If the power light is lit and the screen is just white or black, then power is getting into the device but the light may be out. If the screen is dark, it may be faulty and require replacement. Screen Replacement If the screen is lit and blank, there is a software problem, which can be fixed by hooking up a computer and doing a complex software repair, but it may be more expedient to replace the hardware that the software is stored on.

With heavy use or if the fan is not working properly, the printer can over heat. If the temperature of the printer is too high, it may automatically stop itself from working until temperature falls to a safe level. Check to determine if the printer is warm to the touch. If so, let the printer cool. If this happens with only moderate use, the fan may need to be replaced. Cooling Fan Replacement

Power won’t come on
