    When it grinds the "arm" holding the scanner light fails to move across the scanning area and this is when it prints blank. Once the "arm" moved a few inches and then made griding sounds and went no further. Always returns to its resting place ok.

    help!

Try new toner cartridge, or even the old one if you still have it. Check if the grinding noises go away.

Symptom: Grinding sound.


This could be either your drum cartridge or your fuser unit.

Take your toner cartridge out and look right up front where the drum cartridge empties 'waste toner' back into the toner cartridge.  There's a little flap there that slides back and forth on the very end.  Slide it back and see if toner is packed in there solid.  If so, vacuum it out.  Then you'll have to replace that drum.  Sometimes you can salvage them by cleaning out all the waste toner, but usually the gear in back has already stripped and it's no use.

If everything looks fine with the cartridges, it's probably the fuser.  You can buy a new one here:

http://www.acrat.com/xeroxfuser.htm

The fuser is that part of the machine that gets real hot.  If you open the right side door, it'll be right close to the top.  There are usually 4 screws holding it in place.  If you take those screws out, you should be able to hold it away from the machine while it's running (you'll have to cheat the door).  If the grinding stops as soon as you pull the fuser away, that's probably your problem.

Let me know if any of this sounds too technical.  eric AT essonline.us

Ricoh SP C410 DN jam from bypass


If you can take off the bypass unit, two screws and a harness, you may be able to check the shaft, bushings and rollers. Sometimes removing jammed paper cause parts to get out of normal position. The grinding noise for example, gears not meshing together correctly. If it worked before the jam, then that is where I would look.

Samsung clx-3160fn won't print


Usually I've seen that happen when you use generic toners. There are 4 toner clutches down the right side, with the right cover off you can see which clutch is doing the grinding. Many of the generics are overfilled and hard to turn and will make the noise until you loosen them by hand turning them til they loosen up, or just replacing.

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing


Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!

Makes loud sounds


I had the same problem with the loud grinding sound. The gears on the cartridge(s) is not turning but rather stripping creating a grinding sound. Reinstall all of the toner cartridges. If that doesn't work, pull each cartridge out and manually turn the gear on the cartridge. If the problem persists, you may need to purchase a new toner cartridge.
