My CanonPC940 won't grab paper and push it through to print-also makes a a loud "grinding" noise. How can I fix this?


Sounds like a tire may have slid off of a wheel. Yes they have wheels. Also paper soaks up water like a sponge always keep your paper in the wrapper it comes in and the top side of the paper is where the seam is. Make sure you put the paper in so that the top side is the side going through the machine. I do how ever believe you have a wheel or gear out of place.

HP M3035 growling or grinding noise


Update as of August 9, 2011.

This service advisory has been extended beyond the expiry date listed below.

If you have an HP M3035 printer that is very noisy either with a growling sound or grinding sound coming from the back, you might qualify for a free repair on this product. HP has had problems with the fusers on this product failing prematurely and as such offer a replacement fuser to clients who own this product. To qualify your product must meet the following requirements:

  • page count must be less than 150,000
  • Serial number must fall within the service range, which HP can verify on the phone, however I have not had a unit yet that was not covered.
That is it, date of purchase is not a factor to obtain a free repair for your product. Simply call HP at 1-800 HPINVENT and ask them to issue a case number and provide you with a local repair depot contact. Do not delay on this as the current service advisory is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2011.

Epson r220 print head goes left and then makes a grinding sound


Your printer needs a service reset. Epson printers will only accept x number of cartridge changes / print head cleans. Basically it's telling you that the waste ink pad is saturated. It will cost about £30.00 from a local service centre

HP Laserjet 4L - Grinding or Growling noise when job sent to printer

purchase a maintenance kit.
replace the piper pickup roller.
since the the printer is old and lots things need to be replaced. it is easier to replace all of the necessary parts when you have the printer apart.
the job is not difficult, just time consuming.

This problem always hits after a power interruption. On another site I read the solution is to open the back and roll or move the paper wheels back and forth a few times. This worked for me.
