Screen goes blank then makes a grinding noise then resumes
Everyonce in a while (once a day or so) my screen will just go blank, then the grinding noise starts for a minute or two, and the working swirly circle (the one that is like the former hourglass) appears then it all goes back to what I was doing. I do not have to restart or reboot. Should I be concerned?

If greasing the u-joints eliminated the noise for 3 days, that would be the first place to suspect. The grease will briefly remove most of the slack in the joint until it is slung out and the needle bearings will once again run dry & wobble. This noise can be anything from a grind to a loud squeal. I hope this helps.
This could be simply your end of cycle signal that goes off. but if your hearing this while your clothes are drying, depending on where your hearing this buzzing it could be possibly something stuck inside your blower fan and is now rubbing up against it. this usually can be seen once the front panel is removed. It could also be your timer depending on where your hearing it from. a lot of older units will have a noisy timer motor, even though the timer itself will be okay. hope this helps.

Is the Battery making the cranking noise? If so the battery is telling you the battery is dying. I have a IBM ThinkPad 380Z and when on the charger it makes a beeeeep noise and goes off and on for almost the entire day and then stops and keeps a solid orange battery light on.
Try booting without battery
The grinding noise is probably a worn out roller or the central bearing in the back. The center of the drum in the back has a part called a bearing which screws onto the back of the drum and has a stub which sticks out. The stub then goes into a bearing hole in the back panel of the dryer. If you are handy, you could try to replace yourself. I did it once. While you are at it, check the drum belt which goes around the drum and makes it spin. Replace it if looks like it has wear.
The Resume light continues to blink after the paper jam is cleared.
The carriage is stuck or making a grinding noise.
1. Lift the top cover to the printer.
2. Turn the printer off and then on again.
3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts.
4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct).
5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover. Turn the printer back on!
6. Reconnect the power cord.
7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover
