Question about Lexmark E450dn Laser Printer

Clanking noise when printing from tray 1

E450dn prints fine from tray 1, though it makes a loud clacking noise. I've had no luck from Lexmark support. They're replacing entirely those printers still under warranty experiencing this problem. Still, I'd like to get a resolution. I have plenty of these printers in my footprint and have seen the problem more than once. It's not the rough cotton paper setting, that I checked.

    does it make the same noise when you print from another tray or with with a new cartridge.

    If Lexmark is replacing those printers means there must be some manufacturing defect with them or broken gears.

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

Xerox 6330 loud clicking sound


Check the rails the paper tray sits upon. see if the one on the right side is damaged or dislodged. You didn't say if the noise happened when you printed from the 2nd paper tray.

I have HP laserjet 1018 printer and it makes noisy sound when it prints. But it prints fine though. What causes making this noise?


The noise is probably due to the print heads aligning and clicking. To try to make this noise a little quieter, clean and align the print heads.
Good luck!

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!

This is a laser unit problem, probably being caused by the laser scanner motor being slow to spin up to speed, or having failed completely.

Replacement of the laser unit is the first thing to try here.

Makes click a clack noise and toner cartridge wont come out!


Toss it.

These are 'disposable' printers. You can get a new one for less money than it would cost to fix.
