After switching the printer on it gets ready to print and I hear the usual sounds, I persume the ink cartridge carrier moving but recently it has started making a loud chattering sound for a few seconds...


First of all, check to see if you also hookup the phone cable to jack too? If yes, temporary unplug it to see if noise goes off.
Also, open the lid to check on the drive belt. It may be loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is the gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on left side of the of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight might be broken. Check that to see if it is the case. If it is that is why it makes loud noise when printing. And if it is not fixed, eventually you will receive an error message and printer will not work.
Check that and let me know.
Thanks

Noise while printing - Diagnosis Pt 1


<p>Unexpected noise (such as clicking, thumping, or grinding) from an branded device are heard during printer operation.<br /> <br /> <span><b>NOTE: </b></span><br /> Noises can be caused by a number of things, some of which may not be addressed in this document. This document deals strictly with the isolation and potential resolution of known noises through troubleshooting.<br /> <p>The following table describes some of the noises to be expected in a printer functioning normally:<br /> <span>Noise occurs:</span> <br /> <span>Additional information:</span> <br /> During power-up<br /> When the printer periodically makes humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/left side of the printer, the printer is actually cleaning the ink cartridges. This is a normal operation for the printer. This sequence may happen in the following conditions:<br /><br /><br /> <ul> <li> <p>Before and/or after printing<br /> <li> <p>During power on <br /> <li> <p>After the printer has been on standby/idle for some time<br /> <li> <p>After replacing a cartridge<br /> <li> <p>In the middle of a long print job (such as printing many photos)<br /></li></ul> During printing*<br /> <ul> <li> <p>Paper pickup: There will be some noise during paper pickup due to the movement of rollers and gears.<br /> <li> <p>While printing: The unit has printed a few lines or the paper has been fed into the printing area. There will be some noise during printing due to the movement of rollers, gears, carriage and paper (paper feed and ejection).<br /></li></ul> During paper ejection*<br /> At the end of the print job, there is a louder clicking noise as the paper is being "pushed off" to the output tray.<br /> During copying/scanning<br /> The scanner may make pulsing and dragging noises as it scans portions of the document or it may make a long rolling sound if it is doing a continuous scan. After scanning, it will make a long dragging noise as the scanner is brought back to the home position (could be on the left or right side).<br /> Post-printing with no additional jobs in the queue<br /> Post-completion of a print job and without another job in queue: At the end of a print job, there will be a noise on the left/right side of the printer as the pens are being capped. The printer may try to do this a couple of times, which is normal.<br /> Between print jobs<br /> The printer may make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/ left side of the printer during the cleaning of the ink cartridges.<br /> In the accessories<br /> There may be some noise associated with accessories (ADF, duplexer, etc.) during the initial positioning and during normal operation.<br />

I replaced my color cartridge on my HP Photosmart C3100 series printer and now it is making a grinding sound, but prints perfectly fine - what is the problem?


You would want to try and reinstall the print cartridges. It is possible that something is just stuck that is why you are hearing the grinding sound.
Let me know.

Cartridge stuck; making a terrible clicking noise. The screen tells me to push Set. Nothing happens.


Print head drive gears are stripped out or pulley that the print head belt attaches to is crushed. The pully sits on the right side above where you put the ink and if you can get the pieces can sometimes be crazy glued back together temporarily, the other is on the right side and if damaged is VERY difficult to fix.

Weird noise from printer carriage


The loud clicking noise is probably the carriage trying to move and something is keeping it from doing so. Check to see there are no foriegn objects obstructing the carriage head from moving across the paper. If nothing is found, then likely a hardware error exists.
hope this helps!

My canon pixma mp530 makes a loud noise most times when it powers up and when i print a document. It works OK otherwise.


My MP-530 would try to boot up making a noise like something slipping or grinding, ending with ERROR Code 5100.

Solution: Open the Lid. The drive belt was loose and not able to drive the carriage. There is a gear on the right side of the carriage and a pulley on the left side of the carriage. The spring which holds the pulley tight is missing or broken. I was not able to see the tension spring. To put tension on the pulley, to tighten the drive belt, I cut a Popsicle stick into a wedge and inserted it into the middle slot right of the pulley.
Close the lid and power back on. Runs like new. Hope this helps.

Canon Smartbase MP360 showing error code ##336


It seems the home position sensor is out of whack or the mylar band behind the print cartridge carriage is missing or broken.
To find the mylar piece look for a clear 6mm x 460mm clear piece of plastic with black markings (like a gradient) on both sides.If you find it you can try and place it back by looking for an extended eyelet on both sides of the stell print carrier.
Most people in haste to change ink have the hand slip and it becomes dislodged.

I am getting a service error 5100.


There is something blocking the carriage from seating home. 5100 generally means there is either something in the paper path or an obstruction in the ink carriage path. Open the clamshell to look at the carriage path and make sure the cable connecting the carriage is not restricted.

F4280 doesn't print; cartridgers stuck on right


Turn the power off. Open the door. There should be a thin clear plastic strip with black tick marks on it that runs across in front of the metal bar that the print carriage rides on. Make sure that it is still there and hasn't been pulled off it's moorings on either end. This is how the printer keeps track of where the carriage is at any given time.

Hood a finger over the edge of the print carriage and gently pull it out of its home position. You may need to slightly lift the front edge of the carriage and move it near the center of its range of motion.

Close the door and turn on the printer.
