I have a Creality Ender 3, I've had it for just under 2 years and during a print one morning it suddenly stopped and powered itself off. After checking the fuse and other electronic components it still didn't power on. I purchased a new switch as I thought the problem was there but after replacing it is still did not turn on.

The printer has been working fine and there were no visible or audible anomalies. I urgently need this to be fixed.

    $\begingroup$ This might be a broken Power supply as much as a broken board. To test: keep the mains power unplugged, connect the front USB port to a PC. If you get a screen, the board is ok. Just get a new Power supply in that case. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I think it may be wise to invest in a multimeter, you would then be able to check if the PSU outputs 12/24 V (depending on the output voltage). $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Does the outlet that you're plugging it into have power? (Yea this happened to me once with my Anet A8) $\endgroup$
