Xerox WorkCentre M15i squeals when printing and copying.
Xerox WorkCentre M15i: Machine squeals when printing and copying. I lubricated metal shafts in document feeder (saw posting on your site), but that didn't help. Sound seems to be coming from back right side of machine. Thanks for your help.

Do not only lubricate metal shafts, but promptly lubricate the "pulleys" on the right and left side. the will look very similar to a wheek and pulley mechanism. The squeal happens when one "bar" connects two "wheels" and one side moves faster than the other.

You have 4 bad capacitors on the Power Supply. Replace C24 and C25 (100 microfarad 35v) Replace C12 and C21 (33 microfarad 35 v). It would be a good idea to replace them with a better voltage rating, maybe 50 volt electrolytic capacitors.
We put a usb cable from the xp computer to the workcentre. We left the Vista computer connected to the workcentre via parallel cable. Not the solution we were hoping for but it does enable us to print from both computers
Yes thats easy to fix.
Unplug the machine, unplug the connector fromt\ the document feeder to the scanner. One white molex connector with 2 thumb screws on back.
Lift the document feeder up and out, and lay it upside down on a table or work surface.
On the bottom side you will see a shiney white strip about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, it has 2 holes, one on each end to access a couple of screws. Just remove it from one side, just held on with two sided tape. Then roll it back. Under there you will see I think 4 maybe 5 small black plastic rollers. They are held in with one screw attached to a small metal bracket. Remove the screws and plates for all the rollers, remove the rollers and take them off the shafts. Clean and very lightly lubricate those small metal shafts, and reinstall the rollers, etc. The white strip will stick back to the side you peeled it off of.
Those rollers are where the noise is coming from.
In machine settings there is a setting for the USB port , it has a fast and slow setting. The M15 technically is not a intended to be a network printer. You can look into hooking it up to a pocket pro device which is a small print server. There are other products that you can use to set up that, way.
