I would leave the printer off and contact your printer's technical support department and let them know and they are the professionals specifically for that and they would be able to give you an answer and provide you with choices to fix the problem!

I have two HP Color Laserjet CP3525n printers for my home office. I've owned many HP laser printers and color laser printers (Konica) and none of them have ever made load squeeking noises while...


These are not the quietist printer I have dealt with. Most of the squeeking noises we have encountered in servicing are related to the drums in the cartridges. Are these original cartridges or refills? If original and units are still under warranty, I would go after HP to deal with the noise. If you are using refilled or remanufactured cartridges, some noise is just part of the money saving tradeoff you make.

Hp lasserjet printer 1200 motor will not stop with a loud noise


It could be a flipped wiper blade in the printer cartridge. Does it make the same noise if you take the cartridge out? If it does not then you should try rotating the green drum on the bottom of the cartridge towards the back of the cartridge (the bigger half) and then reinstall it. If it persists and you're fairly positive it is the cartridge installing a new one will fix it. If it is not the cartridge the machine might need servicing. We are fairly proficient with laser printer repair in our Cartridge World store, and our corporate office started recommending similar training nation wide for our stores. I would call you local Cartridge World and see what they can offer you.

If you hear the noise when you power up when just the transport is running, you may need a new fuser. If the noise only comes during printing after the transport starts it could be a bad laser unit. The levels should not be changed by removing the cartridges.

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.


noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)

My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly


Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

My HP laserjet 1200 is making a terrible noise when printing - do you have to oil the rollers?


No Please don't oil any part of the printer, oiling may damage the complete printer first check if the nopise is coming from rear, Top, Front or side.
If noise is coming from Top than possibly top outbin roller are making noise.
If side tham may be toner cartridge or cartridge motor is making.
If noise is coming from rear than either fuser or the gear which rotates the fuser are making noise.
If noise is coming from from than Tray 2 pickup assembly or faulty tray is making noise possibly faulty registration assembly can also mak noise none of the part should be oiled only the faulty part should be replaced.

Grinding noise in cartridge for hp laserjet 1200 series printer. I replced cartridge and still hear noise sometime worse and then not so loud.


I have the same problem and I know what is causing my problem. It's not in the cartridge. You're laser scanner is going to go bad. I had the problem 3 months ago. I would only make the grinding noise when it powered up. Printing was okay. I don't use the printer that much. Then about a week ago I notice only the bottom diagnostic light was on. I unplug the power and powered it back up. The grinding noise got louder and wouldn't stop. I unplugged the printer an replugged. Same thing.

I was bored (christmas day) and decided to open my printer to see what the root cause problem was. I removed several screws and once I got all the printer naked (removed all the plastic outside). I plugged it in an tried to listen where the problem was. I notice a vibration at the laser scanner (top black piece). I unplugged the printer. I unplugged the power source to the laser scanner. Replugged the power and saw all the gears move with no noise. Powered off. Replugged laser scanner. Powered on. Noise back. Defective laser scanner. The laser scanner has a ribbon cable, and four purple wires going to it, oh yeah there is a big yellow warning label, so you can't miss it. I hope this helps.

Sound unexpected when intializing


Might be that the toner cartridge is not inserted properly. It may also be a broken fuser gear.

HP Lasejet 1200


Seem that it maybe a faulty cartridge. If installing a new cartridge does not sort the problem then there is two other things that could be causing the fault.

1 the transfer roller is out of position.
2 The fuser unit is faulty.

Please try the toner cartridge first though.

Thanks J
