WHY DOES MY HP PSC 1610 MAKES A CLICKING/CLANKING SOUND WHEN STARTING TO PRINT STILL PRINTS


Hi,
I think your printer required maintenance, because printer time all parts working then your printer print. I gas you some points link printer belt, printer header, printer roller..so any one damage or this types of issue create, so i suggest you contact HP printer technician and check it.

Thanks,
HP Printer Support

Finisher is makes lots of noise after printing paper


Noise is a relative thing. If it's bumping, clanking and sounds like it's tearing itself apart...That's a bad thing!

If however it's resetting itself with the shuttle mogating back to its home position and the feed arms returning inside for the next page...That's normal.

I have an HL-5280DW it keeps making this loud ticking sound when I go to print and it said to replace the drum and I did and it continues to make the loud ticking/popping sound. What should I do?


Take out the drum and toner shut the door and power up, if the noise is still there during the power up short run, you probably need a new fuser. If the noise goes away with toner and drum removed you probably need a new toner. New ones, especially generic toners are too hard to turn and make that noise.

Toshiba estudio 120 has a loud thumping sound like a weird drum beat.. Is this a bad drum? I am not kidding..


Hi:

That noise you are hearing is most likely coming from the fuser assy. What happens is the lower pressure roller is the fuser gets a flat spot on it and causes the thumping noise your talking about. As long as the print quality is ok I would live with it uless you want to pay a tech to rebuild your fuser assy.

Good Luck

Clanking noise when printing from tray 1


if your getting this noise on every print job the fuser is usually the cause if they have been running on a bit hot they will get flat spots on the pressure roller and it will create a loud kind of clunking sound real common on lexmark lasers. it can also be an envelope setting on some lexmark lasers they have a solonoid for envelope feeding if the envelope inhancment is ingaged in the menu thiscan also cause such a noise

When printing, the printer makes a loud sound


I first guess that it is the drum going out. If you have changed the drum......it is more than likely your fuser. Have you ran a supply check to get the status on your supplies?

A loud banging noise from inside - as it adjusts post printing


I'd check that there's nothing that's fallen into the rear paper feed that is now causing the rollers to jam and release with the bang you mention.

If you're feeling brave I'd try holding the printer upside down (get a friend to help you and watch out for the scanner sliding out!) and give it a bit of a shake to see if anything drops out.

VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN PRINTING WITH MY SAMSUNG CLP-300


You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.
