HP Color LaserJet 2840 making awful noises

It sounds like groaning, grinding, dead cow noises. I'm not sure if it's the motor, gears, Imaging Drum, or what. Please help!

This can be numerous issues really.
Either the paper being used the printer does not like, this can be the texture, type, size etc try making sure all the rollers are clean. If problem persists Id take it to get a service done.
Good luck

Groaning noise when turning wheel in either direction. almost sounds like a cow mooing.

Have the tie rod ends checked for no lubrication, they are the common source of this type of noise. I think a tire shop can listen to the noise give you an answer as to what it may cost to fix at little or no charge.

Grinding loud noise in the transaxle

sounds like the bypass lever might not be re-engaging, push it in firmly. OR, the brake is sticking. this, of course, is if the noise is a growl or a groan. if it IS a grinding noise, look for something stuck in the trans cooling fan or between the axles and wheels, otherwise it's inside the trans and that's not good [re: replacement]

HP Color Laserjet 2840 now makes ear-splitting whine every time

Did the noise start right after you replaced a toner? If so it must be a bad toner which is causing the gears to grind. If this noise happened out of the blue then it might be a bad fuser drive gear which is the gears that connect the fuser to the machine.

Color Laserjet 2550 Loud Noise when starting up and printing

Remove toner cartirdge and check gears on cart as well as all of the gears you can see inside the unit for any signs of wear. You may also need to remove the fuser assembly and perform the same task with the gears back there. MAKE SURE THE POWER HAS BEEN TURNED OFF AND THE PRINTER UNPLUGGED FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TOUCH THE FUSER. IT WILL BE HOT!!! Most frequently these kinds of noises from the printer are due to gears slipping. Sometimes simply reseating the fuser assembly or toner cartridge will fix it. If there appears to be excessive wear on any of the gears, you will need to replace them.

There is a tiny little magnet that falls off and/or has reportedly been put on backwards (fell off is what happened to me) on the auger assembly. It's near the black auger chute on the end of a shaft. It's tiny--a little bigger than a grain of rice. I had to replace the auger shaft assembly but if you can find the magnet, you can super glue it back on.
