LOUD GRINDING NOISE

Everytime we print on our Sharp AL-1655CS printer it makes a loud grinding noise. We called Sharp and they said that we were using the wrong drum. They said because it was not their brand it caused a problem. We changed back to their brand and it got better for about a minute. Now it is extremely loud. It fills the entire office with noise when someone prints. I checked the drum and it is leaking black dust.

That reply doesn't even answer the question. The question was what is causing the problem not how to clean up toner. Also, I highly doubt that aftermarket toner drum would damage machine. They are made to manufacture spec without the huge markup.

The black dust is toner. Be carful as it is carcenagenic (dont get it on your skin) you will need to dispose of the leaking toner cartridge and get a new one. also you will need to clean the printer very carfully to get rid of the spilt toner. A combination of spray duster and a toner hoover are the best way. do not use a normal hoover as you will kill it.

It is always possible that you have done serious damage to the printer using a non standard toner cartridge. I would recomend getting a qualified person to give the printer a good service.

HI. My Sharp AL-1655CS Laser Printer is making an extremely loud noise when printing and when the paper comes out its all jammed like an acordion. Can u please help me?


It's going to be the fusing unit that needs to be replaced. It's also a good idea to replace the gear in the machine that drives the fuser at the same time. Both are available here: http://olsonbros.com/sharp/specs/al1655cs.html

Xerox 6360dn, Tray 2 makes loud grinding noise when printing. Tray 1 is as quiet as a mouse. Replaced tray 2 with a known good tray and it still makes grinding noise.


In my experience, it was the registration roller causing the grinding noise. See http://my.brainshark.com/Phaser-6300-6350-6360-Grinding-Noise-795590408 for troubleshooting video.

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!

Noises when printing copies


Take the new cart. out and reinstall the old cart. Does the noise disappear? I would tap and shake the toner cart. BUT BE CAREFULL, the cart is ready to spill toner. On the box and in the instructions it tells you, or should, that you must shake and tap the outside of the cart. This is due to settling and the toner maybe packed. By tapping and shaking it will feel the toner. If the toner is packed it will put undue pressure on the augers inside the toner cart. and cause a grinding noise. If after tapping and shaking, reinstall the new cart. and check. If everything is ok -- great. If the noise remains contact the company your purchased the cart. from and ask for a replacement. These cart. are mass produced and mostly reused ( refurbed). Parts wear now and they do not replace the inside parts, they just repack with toner and seal.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
