My polariod pogo, seems to be jammed but their is no paper inside and when there is it doesn't want to print and says check printer and it makes a weird noise. HELP!!


A weird noise suggests either the mechanism is broken or there really is a jam.

When there's no paper inside, how sure can you be that there isn't even a tiny piece of paper, smaller than your smallest fingernail, in any part of the mechanism? One way to remove a tiny scrap would be flush it with a vacuum cleaner set to blow...

X5470 lexmark has paper jam now makes squealing noise when I use it!


Try this. Remove any paper jams, take out all sheets of paper and remove all cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the printer from the power source. Plug it back in after 10-15 seconds. When the printer's ready, re-insert the cartridges. The printer will print an alignment page. Load just 5 sheets of paper only. Let it print the alignment page all the way through without cancelling it. If printer is not making the squealing noise, problem resolved. If it's still making the noise, the printer's mechanism somehow got affected by the paper jam now. If that's the case, any mechanical/hardware problem in the printer, it's better to ask assistance from Lexmark. If printer is damaged already, and it's still within warranty, they might send you one for replacement. Good luck!

Problem with Deskjet 895cxi



You may open the rear door to check for any paper jam in side
or if it still gives error rotate the roller in upward direction till you get one locking sound, restart printer and check printing

if you still find grinding noise from printer, its pickup roller gear may be worn-out generally and need to be replaced
contact service person for further repair

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!

ADF Jam


It sounds like the grabbing wheels in the document feeder are losing their grip. You can take alcohol to rub down and clean the rubber tires in the document feeder. There is a possibility that a very small piece of paper is jammed in the feeder as well, which can cause the paper to jam and make a weird noise. Please let me know if this resolves your issue. Thank you.

Constant yellow blinking light, no paper jam


I found this on the HP support site:

The power light is on, and the resume light is blinking.

c00109831.gifc01272271.gifc00109834.gif The printer might be waiting to complete a print job or to receive data from your computer.

  2. Press the resume button.
The printer might be out of paper.

My pinter says paper jam I have have taken the back portion off and then looked thru the paper window with door open as best I can as best the wheels turn but when it start s to print I cam hear it...


The noise of the printer is not related with the software of your computer. If it says out of paper then you will try to clean the rollers of the printer. If it is still saying out of paper and have a weird noise then the printer is already defective.
