2 multi color lines loud vibration noise

I purchased a used 2300 and when it prints, down the right hand side of the print are two multi color lines. I've taken numerous items out and wiped them down, but still I get those two lines. To make matters worse, after pulling out one of the rollers, there is now a loud horn like noise which I think might be caused by vibration on initial start and during printing. HELP

If you have changed the OPC drum and cleaned the entire insides of the printer after taking out the toner cartidges and OPC drum.You need a tech to look at it. The fuser is probably messed up from loose toner.

Smudge mark along entire right side of every page.

HP 1600 is quite a decent little printer, so you shouldn't be dissapointed - if it's working properly, which clearly it's not in this case.

It seems that you have 2 problems here.

Firstly it shouldn't click loudly, so you need to be talking to whoever you bought the printer from.

The smudging - is probably a dirty fuser.
There are laser printer cleaning sheets, that will work quite well, but ideally it needs a little bit of dismantling to get at the fuser to clean the two fuser rollers.

I've seen lots of these with dirty fusers, and a clean with IPA does the trick.

Loud ratchet noise

Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

Printer making funny noise and print is almost peeling off the page on the right side

Your problem is with the fixing film in the fuser assembly (HP Part #RM1-3044). The brown material you see is the plastic film ripping and peeling off of the hheating element.
