Squeaky noise Epson C62 printer, making a squeaking noise when it prints.

    I think possibly from the paper feeder. While it is printing no squeaky noise, but when it is feeding the paper I can hear the noise, also when I first start it.

    Can you identify where the squeak is coming from? Open the top lid and do a print. Is it from one of the rotating shafts, is it from the print head sliding across left and right, is it from the parking mechanism on the far right end, is it from the paper feeder? Does it happen when actually printing, or only when the head is going through its initial motions before printing, or during head cleaning etc?

When you first start the printer, the print head is moved over a rubber blade to "wipe" the print head. Sometimes it will also carry out a head-cleaning cycle. The sheet-feeding roller is rotated to ensure it is in the correct position. So, it seems likely that the squeak comes from the paper feed mechanism. The problem is, you will have to remove the printer top cover to make a more detailed diagnosis. This is not simple without the right tools and knowledge. If you feel game to give it a try, you can obtain the Service Manual quite cheaply from the internet - see for example:

http://www.2manuals.com/product_info.php?cPath=2_39&products_id=647

Do a search - it may be cheaper elsewhere. I will also produce a short tutorial on doing the job to cover the bits the service manual doesn't explain!. Post a new comment if you want to go further.

Otherwise, it's a trip to the repair shop - or just leave it until something fails!

OKI C700 printer making squeaky noise when printing?could it be the cartridge- changed few hours ago?Thanks


If the squeak only developed after changing the toner cartridge then I would say yes it could very well be the cartridge. Particularly if it is a generic brand.
I have found that most squeaks in printers are caused by the toner/drum cartridge

Squeaky HP printer


Typically the squeaking comes from the toner cartridge. If you just purchased it, take it back, it's bad. If you can find an identical printer, swap cartridges and see if it makes a difference.

No printing on epson c62 inkjet


Hi songerjohn

Turn off the printer. Click on start-control panel-printers and faxes. Double-click the printer icon and delete/cancel all print jobs listed. Then reboot the computer and turn on the printer. It should now print normally.

If it doesn't you will need to uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Add/remove Programs-Epson Printer Software. After you have done all this, turn OFF the printer, reboot the computer and then re-install the printer. Make sure you keep the printer turned off until the installation program asks you to turn it on.

If none of this helps, or you want further information, please report back. If this solution has been helpful, please rate it.

Printing from Microstation to Epson Stylus C62 printer


Hi AW

More info is needed. Does the printer print normally from Windows programs? Is the "microstation" running under Windows, or if not, what operating system? If it's not a standard operating system that has C62 drivers (DOS, Windows, Linux, Mac), you will have to write your own driver I'm afraid. Let me know.

If using XP or Vista:

Go under Control Panel -> Printers -> Right Click on printer preferences and choose option to service/clean print heads.

After that print test page.

If still not right suggest new printer due to cost of repairing.

Hope this helps.
Thanks!
