I accidentally murdered my Brother all-in-one printer last night.
We are moving stuff around in the office and I plugged it in at its new location without shutting it down properly before I unplugged it at the original site. I noticed a small spark when I plugged it into the power strip, followed by a spontaneous power up and power down. After that, it was dead as a doornail.
I called the Brother customer service line this morning and we determined that:
1. It needs professional service and
2. It's out of warranty.
Since I got it free a few years ago from the Amazon Vine Program, I'm not out any money and happily I have a nice Canon all-in-one printer that I got from the Vine Program that has now taken its place as our prime printer.
I hate to throw it into the trash, but I'd useless to me and takes up space.
