Question about HP LaserJet 4350TN Printer

1 Answer

I have an hp lj4350 that squeaks only when printing from tray 2

It only squeaks when printing from tray 2. I replaced the two rollers, but that did not help. If I watch from the back, it squeaks when the paper is being picked from the tray

    After trying to lubricate all moving parts at the bottom of the printer, I finally found the squeak/squawk/howling that occurs mainly when printing envelopes. Open the toner tray and remove all toners. Then look for gears on both sides of the glossy transfer belt. These need to be sprayed with WD-40 or equivalent. However, you need to be extra careful not to get spray on the belt, so fold a paper towel twice and lay over the belt, so as to just expose the gear and spray over exposed area, about two inches from front to back, to where you can't see anymore. Wipe up any excess spay that may accumulate after spraying.

There are three rollers. One in the tray and two in the feed assembly. Could be the registration assembly but I have not replaced many of these.

Are there settings on the control panel of your printer?
Is the tray 1 the MP tray? (The one that flips towards you)
If so, can you change the settings of the Tray 1 to Envelope on the control panel?

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My HP LaserJet 2430dtn Paper jam

Try this, make a print from the by-pass tray, does it go OK or jam??
If it jams then there is a problem with the paper feed from the tray.
If it jams then
1-check the drum and see if there is an image on it( you can put a mark on the edge to see if it's rotating, thus eliminating the drum unit)
2-same for the reg roller
3-check for labels ar foreign objects

SOURCE: Paper jam error after last page prints

Hi Natoli3,
This could be a mis-match of paper sizes. Example, computer could be sending an A4 page to the printer. The paper size in the could be set to Letter. Ensure the 4 paper sizes match, in the computer - the document and printer driver; in the printer (change in control panel) and paper tray (adjust the physical side and length).

My HP 2430 continues to jam on Tray 2 only. Tray 3 and Tray 1 (manual feed) are fine. I have replaced rollers and it continues to jam paper.


Common problem on this printer is for either the drive shaft for tray 2 to come lose or to break. Pull out the tray and try to rotate the roller. If it turns freely then the shaft is broken. The replacement procedure is too complex to describe here. If the roller does not turn freely then likely the pick solenoid has failed.

If you are printing invoices from the MP tray the pickup roller might be squeaking against the separation pad (common with this design). Other common squeak is toner cartridge noise.

Our HP B8550 is squeaking when it prints. How can we fix this? It has just started doing this.


Hello

Try reinstalling the cartridge or installing another. This cartridge's yield is 2500 pages. When is very used, it could make rare sounds. Always use genuine HP cartridge.

Check the pick-up roller,If the pick-up roller has a very smooth surface, replace it.

First off put a sheet of paper on the manual feeder (tray 1) and do a self test. Does the printer still make the noise. If it does, then it is not the roller in tray 2. Only other way is to put your ear to the printer case and see if you can isolate where the noise is coming from.

There is a fuser assembly in the rear which generates heat so over time bushings can go bad and it will make noise. You really need to isolate it more. If you open and close the toner door the motor will turn for a couple of seconds. Do you hear the noises then?

In addition to the pickup roller, the separation pad in the tray should also be replaced. This pad keeps more than one sheet from feeding at a time. When we do maintenance on a printer we always replace both to stop this from happening. The part number you want is RM1-1298-000. It is used in quite a few different HP printers.

Printing problem with HP Laserjet P2015 printer


This can be an issue with one of the faulty sensor across the printer.
Please check if you are able to print from tray 1, e.g. a configuration page.
A config page can be printed by holding the Green Button and releasing it as soon as the Triangle light comes on. This would take approx 5 secs.
If the printer is able to print from tray 1, then it could be an issue with the tray 2 pickup sensor.
Check if the tray 2 pickup sensor ( a black plastic piece to the right of the tray 2 pickup roller) is moving freely (front and back), also check if tray 2 pickup roller is not able to rotate completely.

If the tray 2 sensor is not moving freely and of the pickup roller is rotating completely, then reseat the pickup roller.

Normal use with good media causes wear resulting in the need to periodically clean or replace the pickup roller. Additionally, the use of poor media might require more frequent replacement of the pickup roller. Replacing the pickup roller Complete the following to replace the pickup roller:
