I'm wondering if someone could point me in the right direction. I have a HP Color LaserJet Printer that is no longer in warranty. We had a problem at church and there was a power surge that burnt out two of the computers power supplies, a Westell DSL Modem, and (I think) the power supply of my printer.

I have located a power supply for the computer but can't seem to find any step by step directions on how to replace the power supply.

If anyone has had this problem and knows of a place where I can get step by step documentation, I would sure appreciate any help.

I am running Windows 7 64 bit.

I'm not sure I am in the right forum but hope someone can help.

Thanks for any and all ideas!

You don't say what model printer it is, so here is a listing, that hopefully has your model in it. They are all service manuals, which should include power supply replacing steps.

Not sure if you are asking for step by step instructions for computer or printer.

If it is the computer, is the new power supply the exact same as the bad one?
If not, post the model of the HP and the max wattage of the old power supply.

There is likely more damage than just a power supply. Have you opened the case and
examined closely?

Another thought is that this equipment may be covered by the churches fire/ theft/ property insurance.
Depending on cause of surge, the power company may be liable. Of course, if it was an act of
God then the insurance may cover if there is any.

I thought in my original post that I mentioned it was a Hewlett Packard Color LaserJet Printer. I do appreciate your assistance. As I mentioned earlier the power supplies of our pastor's and secretaries computer were burned up by a power surge. This surge was created by workmen that had been in the church doing construction. Our pastor doesn't want to put the cost back on the workers and has decided to eat the repair costs. A parishoner has donated a new printer and I've been able to replace the power supplies for both of the damaged computers. They are working fine now.

I was given the HP Color LaserJet Printer and am hoping that I can repair it myself. You may be correct in that there may be more wrong than just the power supply. I can get a replacement power supply for the printer for $18.70. I thought it would be worth it to see if this will take care of the printer. That is not a bad price for a otherwise very good printer.

Will keep looking for service manual. Thanks for your assistance.

What is the model number of the printer??

My HP printer's power supply is external. One end of the power cord plugs into the wall and the other end plugs into
the printer with power pack inline. No instruction would be needed.

This was the reason for my wondering what instruction was needed:

Perhaps you should have written printer instead of computer.....
