Banging noise when job is printing

When a job is in print there is a constant banging noise have checked all areas visible in case anything was caught which might be causing this problem but to no avail

the sound would indicate a problem with either the feeder or the rollers but the paper is not in a jam mode

Re: banging noise when job is printing

This is a common problem for the 4350 ( the first series),

they have since then modified them.

the problem come from the Fuser section, there is a gear which starts to wear out and slips,  there is an update for it.

Re: banging noise when job is printing

Printer Cartridge, Is it HP? or refill, anyway my guess pretty informed is that you need to replace the cartridge because it is having trouble turning so the machine is at present slipping the gear that turns it. with that said I have also seen this fault break the gear that drives the cartridge - not good/big fixa - it could also be the fuser or fuser drive gear these faults are common too.


We need to be certain that noise is not from cartridge try another or see if sound is present with cart removed. If we are sure the cart is OK then it will be the gear that drives the fuser needs replacing as well as the fuser gear itself not simple

SOURCE: Won't print. Message says

It is giving carriage jam not a paper jam the carriage is the part which carries cartridges on it. It seems your carriage is jam and can't move left and right so open the door and try to move your carriage with the help of rubber roller which moves your printer. Also clean the steel road on which the carriage moves just check at the corner of cartridge carriage if any paper bit is stuck or excessive paper dust has jammed it. If this does not solves your problem kindly comment back.

SOURCE: HP 870Cse feeder/roller is dead

Take a very small amount of Goo Gone on a paper towel and roll it over the rollers. You can press and hold the top button to get the rollers moving. This will revitalize the rubber rollers. My printer is over ten years old and I do this about every two years and never get a misfeed.

I have a problem. When I turn on my printer, the first symbol from top constantly blinks and it doesn't print anything. How can I solve this issue?

Welcome to FixYa!

If the first symbol on the top is constantly blinking as shown in the picture below, It means that a paper or a foreign object has jammed your printer.


Jam can occur in 3 areas. Please refer to the image below.
1. Internal Areas
2. Input Trays
3. The Output Bins

To clear the jam, turn the printer off and disconnect the power cord. Be careful not to tear the paper in case of a paper jam. If a small piece of paper remains in the printer, it could cause additional paper jam.

Let's clear out the Internal Areas first. Push the button to open the print-cartridge door, and then remove the print cartridge. To prevent damage, do not expose the print cartridge to light. Cover it with a piece of paper. Please refer to the image below.

If jammed paper is visible, grasp it with both hands and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
If no paper was jammed inside the print-cartridge door, open the Output Bin or the back door
of the printer. To avoid damaging the printer, do not attempt to clear a jam in the top output bin by pulling the paper straight out.
Again, if jammed paper is visible, grasp it with both hands and slowly pull it out of the printer.
If no paper or foreign object is visible, close the back door of the printer.

Next, let's take a look at the Input Tray. (We have already taken out the print cartridge.)
Lift the Tray 1 roller cover, grasp the jammed paper or foreign object, and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
If no jammed paper is or foreign object is visible, open Tray 2 and see if a paper is visible. Again remove it slowly with both hands. Please refer to the image below.
Close Tray 2.
If no jammed paper is visible in the second tray area, pull down the upper media guide (we have already taken out the print cartridge). With both hands, grasp the jammed paper and slowly pull it out of the printer. Please refer to the image below.
Close the upper media guide and return back the print cartridge. Please refer to the image below.

These steps should clear out any jams that you are experiencing.
Connect back the power cord again and turn on your printer. You should be able to print now.

Thanks for using FixYa. Keep me posted.

Noise while printing - Diagnosis Pt 1

<p>Unexpected noise (such as clicking, thumping, or grinding) from an branded device are heard during printer operation.<br /> <br /> <span><b>NOTE: </b></span><br /> Noises can be caused by a number of things, some of which may not be addressed in this document. This document deals strictly with the isolation and potential resolution of known noises through troubleshooting.<br /> <p>The following table describes some of the noises to be expected in a printer functioning normally:<br /> <span>Noise occurs:</span> <br /> <span>Additional information:</span> <br /> During power-up<br /> When the printer periodically makes humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/left side of the printer, the printer is actually cleaning the ink cartridges. This is a normal operation for the printer. This sequence may happen in the following conditions:<br /><br /><br /> <ul> <li> <p>Before and/or after printing<br /> <li> <p>During power on <br /> <li> <p>After the printer has been on standby/idle for some time<br /> <li> <p>After replacing a cartridge<br /> <li> <p>In the middle of a long print job (such as printing many photos)<br /></li></ul> During printing*<br /> <ul> <li> <p>Paper pickup: There will be some noise during paper pickup due to the movement of rollers and gears.<br /> <li> <p>While printing: The unit has printed a few lines or the paper has been fed into the printing area. There will be some noise during printing due to the movement of rollers, gears, carriage and paper (paper feed and ejection).<br /></li></ul> During paper ejection*<br /> At the end of the print job, there is a louder clicking noise as the paper is being "pushed off" to the output tray.<br /> During copying/scanning<br /> The scanner may make pulsing and dragging noises as it scans portions of the document or it may make a long rolling sound if it is doing a continuous scan. After scanning, it will make a long dragging noise as the scanner is brought back to the home position (could be on the left or right side).<br /> Post-printing with no additional jobs in the queue<br /> Post-completion of a print job and without another job in queue: At the end of a print job, there will be a noise on the left/right side of the printer as the pens are being capped. The printer may try to do this a couple of times, which is normal.<br /> Between print jobs<br /> The printer may make humming and buzzing sounds as the carriage assembly moves around on the right/ left side of the printer during the cleaning of the ink cartridges.<br /> In the accessories<br /> There may be some noise associated with accessories (ADF, duplexer, etc.) during the initial positioning and during normal operation.<br />

My MF 5700 has a red lamp blinking and notification-check paper size constantly, even when I restart it, wont print anything, paper size is ok...

If you are printed on it, check the paper size under printer properties, to "get rid" of blinking cancel job or print, copy and turn off and on

Making noise

Hello tregster,

Is this the first time this happened or has this been the case ever since?

If this has been the case ever since, the beeping sound may just be an indication that the printer is preparing itself to print.

You can also try to check the ink casings if they're properly connected to your printer.

Hope that helps.

Yours truly,
Art Pena

A loud banging noise from inside - as it adjusts post printing

I'd check that there's nothing that's fallen into the rear paper feed that is now causing the rollers to jam and release with the bang you mention.

If you're feeling brave I'd try holding the printer upside down (get a friend to help you and watch out for the scanner sliding out!) and give it a bit of a shake to see if anything drops out.

Photosmart C6300 pictures are printing very wet and grainy. printer is also very loud - almost as though the parts were scraping and banging.

Sounds like you have the wrong paper setting in your print properties. I would use photo or high bright 24lb paper and set the paper type in your printer properties prior to executing the print job.

Sharp AR 168D will not print from PC

Try disabling the print queue. In windows 2000 go to printers, then properties of the canon printer, advanced and select "Print directly on the printer".
Also try printing from another computer and replacing the interface cables.

Noise inside left end

I really and not seen this model but HP has their own constant in their engineering and that is the paper transport mechanism the plastic gears when they sound off the hair behind my neck raises. I call it a death call although it can benew but I believe ther is an opposing force onb this train and you may consider opening it to see the gears.
While the print job is going is the noise constant ?

Printer makes clicking noise

Make sure the printer is not out if ink. When the light flashes this may be the case. Also check the print queue. If it contains pending print jobs and there is no paper the light will flash. Here is how to check print queue: Click Start > click priters and faxes > double click printer icon and see if there is something ... If you see any print jobs delete them right away. and restart your computer. This should solve your problem.
