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.

When i power up the printer it make a loud noise. It appears to come from lower area below the cartridge. it makes the noise even if the cartridge isn't in


If this is a grinding noise it will be the gear assembly near the fuser on the printer. You would need a printer repair person to fix this for you.

If my printer is squeaking what could be the problem besides the toner cartridge?


Squeaking noise is usually caused by the toner cartridge, expecially after market ones. But if its not the toner, I've seen the mirror motor cause a rotation noise in the 1300/1200 series printers.

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.

Copies are coming out with a dark horizontal lines and printer is making a rather loud sound when paper is in printing process.


Two things that can cause print quality issues and noise.
1. The toner cartridge can cause lines and sometimes can make a squeaking noise.
2. The fuser can cause streaking and smudges on the prints and can cause a grinding noise if the drive gear is worn or the bushings are worn.

HP laserjet 1200 series printer makes a groaning whining noise when it starts up to print; noise continues until it stops.


Sorry, it's old, cranky, and worn out. Live with it, or buy a new one, it's not cost effective to fix it.

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)

When printing, grinding noise occurs


Try a different toner cartridge. If you still get the noise, it will probably be the fuser. They have gears and bearings that sometimes break.
