Hi Chezicke:
You have gears on the left side of the printer that drive the tractor assembly, they may be worn or loose and not messhing as they should to drive form feed. Remove left side cover to check gears.

HP 1315v Printer Makes grinding noise and won't feed paper anymore


It sounds as though a sheet of paper or an envelope bunched up and has jammed inside. Until that is removed from the feed roller, you will continue to hear the 'grinding' sound, and won't be able to print anything. Remove the cover from the backside of the machine, then locate and remove the obstruction. If you don't have any such obstruction then you have a mechanical defect which is not user repairable.

Printer is grinding


sounds Like a paper jam , Plus your paper feed rollers are dirty, clear any paper inside the printer, the using a cloth rag and some 409 cleaner , wipe feed rollers to remove white paper dust on rollers, and let dry, then add paper to printer and it should print.

Grinding noise when printing and cuts paper


There may be something stuck in the area of the perforation, like a paper clip, paper debris or some foreign material. I would look in that area with a flashlight and see if there is something in the Paper feed roller area.Something may have come loose if you had a paper jam. Let me know.

Paper Jam...grinding noise


The print head lock is probably not retracting. Look for the white plastic block that pokes through from the paper feed side just in front of the head. Push it in with your finger and move the head to the middle by hand. Now turn the machine on. Then turn it off using the correct method. Then turn it on once more. If it starts grinding again, you screwed the feed mechanism when tugged out the jammed paper (probably pulled it backward through the feed instead of making it go forward and out the correct exit). If this is the case, you may as well bin it. If it in warranty, you can try to get a claim for repair.

GRINDING NOISE or PAPER JAM


If you are not a technical person best thing to do is to show it to an expert. grinding noise means some part in the machine is running with the friction. and might brake something or scratch something. Find out persons who work on photocopiers in your area either samsung or Xerox. as this model comes with both the companies and Xerox people are generly better than samsung people.

My printer, makes a grinding noise, when the paper is feeding through when printinig?


Look to make sure that there isn't a small bit of paper caught in the wheels that push the paper through. Over time, even a small bit in the corner can destroy your printer.
