Question about HP OfficeJet 7310 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Lol, it's not the sound we're trying to muffle, as stated I knew the solution might sound dumb but we're not trying to muffle the sound. One of two things is likely happening.
1. There's a light source causing the calibration sensor to think something is moving in front of it and messing with it's normal function causing the head to move back and forth to recalibrate every minute or so.
2. Mechanical failure of one of the motors or caridge sensors is causing it not to know where the head is positioned and it is constantly trying to get back to it's "parked" position but never getting the signal from the sensor saying it is there.
With this in mind, throw a dark coloured blanket over it and see if the noise stops, if it does you either need to close the blinds, move the affending lamp or reposition the printer so the light isn't hitting it at the front where the little blue light blink occasionally.
If this doesn't work, it's likely a sensor failure and you may be able to determine which one by opening your printer toolbox and checking the various diagnostic routines.
Hope this makes things a little more clear,
