It sounds like the belt that moves the printhead is worn out or, the print carriage is stuck. With the ppower turned off, lift the lid and gently try to move the printhead back & forth. If it doesn't get stuck, the belt's bad. If this is the problem, replace the printer. It's close to the same price as replacing parts.

    When I used Lexmark printers, I ended up replacing my printer about once every year. The ink costs as much for a color and a black as the next model up costs. I went through about 8 different printers before I bought a more expensive printer. I was quite happy with Lexmark except they didn't have one feature I really needed. Also. there was the affordability issue. Lexmark makes a good printer at a nice price.

Xerox 6360dn, Tray 2 makes loud grinding noise when printing. Tray 1 is as quiet as a mouse. Replaced tray 2 with a known good tray and it still makes grinding noise.


In my experience, it was the registration roller causing the grinding noise. See http://my.brainshark.com/Phaser-6300-6350-6360-Grinding-Noise-795590408 for troubleshooting video.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

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.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
