Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Intermitent Ticking When power is on the printer has an intermitent ticking (approximately 16 ticks, then silence, then ticking, etc.) When ticking the Alarm light blinks. I recently had to disconnect the printer, computer, etc., due to a coming storm. The ticking problem did not exist prior to the disconnect. The printer copies and faxes as usual. Any possible answers are appreciated.

I determined that there was an incorrect connection from the printer to the main phone line jack. The DSL connection and the printer were reversed.

Konica Minolta bizhub c452 makes clicking / ticking noise. also has color streaking.

This is a sign of wear if you can check the internal mechanics of the printer when it is running, you will see that there is a gear issue.

I have a SATO M-8400RV printer that stopped printing. When powered on, it make a rapid ticking sound, the display is flickering and the stepper motor does not move although it apears to be receiving at...

Sounds like the power supply/motor drive board is bad. You might consider a new printer or repair the power supply. The printer is obsolete and only a few parts are currently available from Sato

Samsung SCX-4521F Possibly lost its power? When

If it just make tick sounds, but does not power up and does not do its normal startup, it probally the power supply board on this printer has failed. This printer like most modern electrical appliances has a switching power supply. The ticking sound is the power supply trying to start, but it senses a fault and shuts down and tries to restart.

I had a similar problem with my printer, though it not the same model (CLX-3160) but the same manufacturer Samsung. I took mine appart and found that one of the capacitors on the power supply had failed. It was blown and the top of the capacitor popped open. I am not saying this is your problem but it would be the first thing I would check if you want to get this fixed. Otherwise, look for a new printer.

Hope this helps.

I have an HL-5280DW it keeps making this loud ticking sound when I go to print and it said to replace the drum and I did and it continues to make the loud ticking/popping sound. What should I do?

Take out the drum and toner shut the door and power up, if the noise is still there during the power up short run, you probably need a new fuser. If the noise goes away with toner and drum removed you probably need a new toner. New ones, especially generic toners are too hard to turn and make that noise.

HP 6110

Is the ticking sound coming from the right side near the bottom? Or the left side near the top. If it is the right bottom then you're looking at a service station. If it is the left top then a scanner unit. Scanner unit is not available from Hp. You can try dismantling and cleaning all mirrors and lenses (usually doesn't work). If it is the service station, you are probably going need parts that are not availble.
