    Replace fuser & Gear assm. Can watch & see fuser turns quiet then ouput assm gear engages & it rumbles. No output assm for this printer, like it is part of the frame. HP had me order the drive assm., I have it, but it only drive the gears in the front. An express exchange may be the only option?.

    After relacing a new Fuser, printer is very noisy, a lot of vibration, still print ?

  • valverax Jul 18, 2008

    I'm havng the same problem. Just had a Printer Technician replace the fuser and the black streak is gone, but now the printer is obnoxiously loud whenever I print. Technician could not figure out why it so loud, so I'm listening to it all day long! Any do-it-yourself solutions or part(s) suggestions would be appreciated.

    The noise is due to gear teeth jumping over each other.  Each jump creates a loud "clack" noise.  It seems to me that whatever the gears drive (the fuser?) is in need of lubrication and is putting so much load on the gears that they jump.  Our repair person opened it part way and we turned an exposed gear with our fingernails.  For some reason, this made the clack noise go away but there is still a loud rumbling.  We had this rumbling before the clacking noise started.  If anyone knows how to inject some lubricant in the right places, this info would be very helpful.

Paper jammed


    This is how to clear paper jammed in canon inkjet printer.


    1. Protect yourself from shock. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the Canon Inkjet Printer. This is an important step when working inside ANY electronic device.

    2. Unhinge the back access panel of the printer. It seems repetitive to say this, but this door will be in the BACK of the printer.

    3. Look through the opened back panel and look for paper. Remove any and all paper you find jammed there.

    4. Close the back access panel. Make sure that it latches into place and looks the same way that it did before you opened it.

    5. Find the front or top access panel. This is the panel you would lift to change ink cartridges. Open this access panel. If the carriage that holds the ink cartridges moves, then you forgot to unplug the printer, go back and do that now. Look for paper that may be jammed in this area of the printer.

    6. Remove any paper you find jammed here. When pulling from the front there will be resistance from the paper feeder. Pull slowly or the paper will rip and create a more stressful problem.

    7. Close the front access panel. Make sure that it falls or latches back in place. It should look the same way that it did before you opened it.

    8. Plug the printer's power cord into the wall outlet, and attempt to print again. If the printer prints the job, then you have successfully removed the paper jam

    After a paper jam the ink not setting


    If you check the quality of printing by changing the cartridge, then you only have to replace Fuser Unit. Probably that when you remove the sheet (paper jam) fixing deteriorated film oven. Best printer behind the door (rear door) and a flashlight to look to see when you print you can see something broken, a foil. the printer stopped trying to push the fuser - the two blue clamps can not be fixed because of this well and make noise. in most cases breaking a finger to catch the oven (the clip is on the side of the oven gear) so when you change the oven will resolve the problem with noise

    Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


    please try this

    1. Turn off the printer.
    2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
    3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
    4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
    5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
    6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
    7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
    8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
    9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
    10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



    alternative :
    Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

    Printing crooked, blurred, bad roller?


    Sounds like when you pulled out the paper jam, you misaligned the print carriage. That would produce both the noises you hear and the print quality issues. HP.com has a few web pages on their site that might help. The first one deals with noisy print carriages. Unfortunately, it's not dedicated to just your product, but the steps should generally apply:

    Resolving Noisy Print Carriage Issues

    There's a separate web page available for troubleshooting crooked or skewed printouts:

    Printed Text or images are Crooked or Skewed

    If all else fails, unplug the power cord from the printer, wait 20 seconds or so, then plug it back in. That should restart the printer and make it go into a self test which may include a realignment procedure. Watch for any error messages on the display on the printer's control panel. Sometimes to realign, it prints out two test pages and instructs you to place the first printout on the scanner bed and then press Enter.

    Go to the following web page and when it opens, scroll down to the section "Replacing the print cartridges", and find step 9 in that section for alignment instructions.

    Replacing Print Cartridges

    Good luck.

    Paper jam


    MOST HP PRINTERS HAVE A DOOR ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE PRINTER THAT CAN BE OPENED TO REMOVE A PAPER JAM. HAVE YOU TRIED USING THIS TO CLEAN THE PAPER JAM. THERE MIGHT BE SOMETHING STUCK IN THE PAPER PATH THAT IS CAUSING THE JAMS. CHECK THE WHOLE PAPER PATH FROM THIS REAR ACCESS DOOR. OK?
