"Groaning" sound; then stops printing

Prints for three or so pages, then makes the groaning sound, then stops printing and the red/green lights blink. Can reset but happens again each time. Checked and no paper jam at all.

Replace transfer roller


Groaning noise on this model is usually down to third party consumables, Has this noise started after recently( within 5000 prints) replacing one of the colour toners cartridges, If so - you should replace the same cartridge with a HP OEM product and see if this cures the fault 99%of the time third party consumables do not replace key components when Re-Manufacturing Toner/Drum units to save on cost - however this causes Major issues with the expected Life of the Printer as A whole. Added stress on the drive systems due to poor toner units will invalidate any warranty/Repar Cover you may have, Despite what the adverts say CHEAPER toner Units Do Not Give You Cheaper Prints. They Just amage the rest of the Machine>>>>...

Phaser 8560 not printing RED correctly


Even though Media Sciences ink is not compatable and is subject to burning and clogging your printhead, the most telling symptom you listed is the red shavings. This indicates the ink is not releasing from the drum properly. This version of solid ink has a problem with the cams on the maintenance camshaft cracking and this causes the maintenance kit roller to not oil the drum properly. You will also hear an odd noise either grinding, groaning or a slight tearing sound. This requires a technician to resolve as replacing the camshaft is not an enduser job. Print quality issues are either the printhead or related to the camshaft failing, there are a few others but they wouldn't exhibit the symptoms you listed.

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.

Loud Abnormal Sounds with each print job


It may be a paper feed issue. If using a duplexer, try removing the duplexing unit and try printing again. It's often attached to the back of a printer.

TLP2848Z blinking red, will not print


1: Is it a TLP2844 or a TLP2844Z.

Operationally they are completely different printers. TLP2844 uses ELP (Eltron Programming Language. but TLP2844Z uses ZPL (Zebra Programming Language). You need to calibrate the printer to the labels.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844. Load media. Connect power.
Hold down feed key, power on, count one, two, release feed key. The printer will go through a calibtation routine and print config label. IMPORTANT - When it prints this label you must press the feed key and see the message OUT OF DUMP. Your printer will now be calibrated. Check this by hitting the feed key a few times and printer will feed one label each time feed is hit.

Calibration:
If its a TLP2844z.

Load media. Turn printer on and wait for green light (Approx 1 minute)
Press feed key and keep it pressed until green light blinks once, then twice, now release feed key.

HP PSC 1410 will not print, printer icon is no longer on the bottom right hand corner of screen either. When i turn off the printer and turn it back on it prints the test page only.


Dear kappa, It is the problem related "Alignment of cartridge" your printer is working properly, I am suggesting a method, with the help of this method you will never get test page until you lift out your cartridge from your printer. When next time printer print a test page, take it and put it into the scanner, remember the printing area should be the side of mirror and the printer prints on the above side of the paper should be left side of the scanner. And press scan button, you will see the green light will be blink and a voice of scanner you will hear. After 30 seconds light will stop blinking, Next time when you will turn on your printer, it will not print test page.
