Maybe it is on the way out? something in the paper transportation mechanism might be misaligned or something might be stuck in it. Needs a good examination, check for worn or loose parts

SOURCE: Our Dell 3100CN pcl6 still prints, but it makes a grinding noise.

I had the same problem, tried to use the MFP tray, got jam, couldnt't close the rear door and used appropriate force... terrible noise with every print thereafter.
I fiddled with the roller at the back of the MFP tray. It didn't want to move much but after rotating it ~ 45 degrees back and forth it was in a more loose position. That seems to have solved it, no more noise!

Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif

    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.

bpp90119-1.gif Replace the whole unitgtabtop.gifIf the printer is still making a grinding or squeaking noise after following the steps above, replace the whole unit. See Whole Unit Replacement instructions, which are included with the whole unit replacement.
Testinggtabtop.gifUpon replacement of the whole unit, perform a Paper Path test and a self-test as described below to verify that the new unit is functional.
    Performing a paper path test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Diagnostics Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Perform Tray x Paper Path Test is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the test.
    NOTE: The paper path test will terminate only when the paper in the tray being tested runs out or the printer is turned off.
    Performing the stand-alone self-test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Self Test Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Print Menu Map is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the stand-alone self-test.

SOURCE: Printing noises - no ink transferring

Sounds like you may need to replace the developer drive assembly. This is the motor and gear assy that drive the color developers. it is located on the right side middle, 3 screws hold it in place. be careful when replacing to not over tightened screws.

SOURCE: Whenever I go to print

It can be that the paper drawing mechanism of the roller and the geared drive has an issue, possible that the motor has a play with the roller out of alignment , producing a difference of gap in the roller settings. If so the paper will be drawn into in different lengths so as to jam with the uneven pulling.

Refer to the service manual in disassembling the device.. Clean it thoroughly then try it again.. If, you have no experience in doing so, hire a qualified tech to do so.

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 />

I have HP laserjet 1018 printer and it makes noisy sound when it prints. But it prints fine though. What causes making this noise?


The noise is probably due to the print heads aligning and clicking. To try to make this noise a little quieter, clean and align the print heads.
Good luck!

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking


Hi,
As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards
Neeraj Sharma

Does it make noise when it first feeds paper or when the print module sweeps across? It's possible that there is some obstruction in the paper path or in the way of the print module. Is the noise constant or only when a certain action occurs? Let me know.
