S5 taking hours to power on.

Posted (edited) · S5 taking hours to power on.

I'll be in contact with support (again) about this, but am wondering if anyone else has experienced it and possibly got it fixed. Sometimes when powered up my S5 will takes hours to actulaly power on. You hit the switch and absolutely nothing happens. Quite a few hours later (more then a couple, less then 12...) it will power up (switch was left on). When it does this, it doesn't make a peek; no fan spin, etc.

 

It is .. bizarre. Anyone else see this? Sending my printer in for service will be a huge hassle.

 

(if it would stay on WiFi I'd just never power cycle it... but it won't. Better then before, but still falls off occasionally)

    Looks like this time, it won't be hours, it won't be ever (sans service). I wish they hadn't embedded the power supply. There are a lot of good things about embedding a power supply but serviceability isn't one of them.

    Hi

     

    Did this get fixed? If so any feedback on what the issue was?

    It got fixed by sending the printer in for warranty repair. The power supply needed replaced.

    Ok, that makes sense.
