Common problem on the HP 4200/4300's it's caused by the swing arm (the gear assembly that drives the fuser) HP have modified this. If you contact them direct they may replace it free of charge

Turned on the printer and hear a clicking/grinding noise back by the rollers that exit the paper - can not print How to get whatever is jamming movement resolved?

If you remove the Fuser Assembly and look at the black gear to your left, you will find what is call a Swing Plate Assembly. When those gears gets worn it will cause the Fuser gears not to engage properly and cause jamps and loud noise. Some times you can get by replacing just the gear you can see. If you have to remove teh complete assembly, it is quite a chore and shoud be done by a service technician.

I have a CL4000DN making a grinding noise when first turned on any ideas?

it is possible that the drive gear in the fuser has failed. this will cause a very loud grinding sound in the back of the unit where the paper comes out. you can order new gears for it but sometimes its easier to replace the saying all this where is the noise coming from?

Every time we print or turn printer on it makes a very loud grinding noise. what are the possible causes

This is a common problem.

You need to replace the "fuser assembly" and make sure when you order it, that it comes with the extra gear. The instructions are simple. You will replace the fuser and the small gear located on the left side as you look in from the back.

If you are in the USA, or Canada, is a good place to buy this kit, and they warrantee the fuser for 6 months. The OEM HP Fuser is warranted for 30 days, and may not come with the gear.

I have an hp 4250dtn and the fuser rollers at the initial point don't turn, also I am getting paper jams on top by the cartridge, I noticed that the paper is not fusing with the ink, but I am not sure...

The fuser and swing gear asm (the swing gears drive the fuser) probably needs to be replaced. I rarely see the fuser drive motor cause this kind of problem. Are you hearing any noise coming from the back?

HP P3005 making grinding noises

this is a problem that HP refuses to acknowledges. Its caused by the gear that meshes with the main fuser wanders to the right as the printer prints. we are checking into a fix for this, since we are getting no cooperation for the manufacturer, Canon or HP. Canon makes the print engine

On startup printer growls

Hi Charlie, These machines have a history of growling, however usually they growl before changing the fuser. The fuser is most likely the problem maybe you got a bad one. If you still have the old one and it was quiet you could pop it back in to confirm. Ther is also a gear kit available to replace the fuser drive gears but usually the noise is in the fuser.
Another growling noise can come from optional tray3 if installed. Easy to diagnose just lift machine off the assm. and print.

Hope this helps
