Question about HP LaserJet 1200 Printer

1 Answer

My Hp 1200 laser printer makes a high pitched squealing noise and I have to pull the plug out to stop it.

The other day paper got stuck, I pulled it out and it was working fine but now it is squealing again.

The fuser is the part of the printer that heats the toner to the paper. turn the printer around and open the back cover. You should see a long black bar with green clips on either side to release a paper jam. There may also be rollers in there. Make sure there is no debris in the fuser, and that those clips are in the functioning position (usually down). If the fuser is removable, which I don't think it is in this model, take it out and then reinstall it. Then give it a shot. Usually though high pitched squeal is a toner cartridge thing. If you are using reman cartridges try a new (actual hp) cartridge from office depot or staples.

Hi,

The unit may have a paper jam or stuck object inside, if you have experience a paper jam error before, check the printer for any object or paper stuck inside, clean roller.

Some error like this can be a problem on the feeder sensor and by this time you may need to replace and repair the unit.

Hope this initial info helps

How i fix the problem of xerox phaser 3117 laser printer that takes a paper in and makes noise and stop printing?


Hi Narendra,
This is really difficult to answer without being on site!
All I can think of is perhaps you have some piece of paper stuck inside.
If you had some paper stuck before, and you had to pull it out causing a piece to rip off try putting the bits back together again on the desk, if you can't find them all then that's the bit still stuck inside you need to look out for inside.
If in doubt you will need to get your local engineer to have a look inside.
Good Luck.

`How do I fix my LG tv? It's making a high pitched noise and there is a black screen, is it fixable?


Get it to a tv dealer but my guess is its died. It may not be economical to repair but you may be pleasantly surprised and its a small job. LG are usually pretty good so I'm surprised its gone at this age.

Hp laser jet all leds on and not working


The surge protector or UPS may not be allowing sufficient voltage through to the printer. HP printers do not have built in speakers of any kind. Because of this, they are not capable of making any beeping or squealing sounds. If any noises such as these are heard then the printer is probably connected to an Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) or a backup battery. To verify that the UPS is the source of the noise, plug the printer directly into a wall outlet bypassing the UPS.

The following are common symptoms:
  • High pitched squealing, beeping sounds, or alarms (UPS)
    NOTE: Noise over the phone line can also cause high-pitched squeals and beeping sounds.
  • Inexplicable or false error messages
  • Printer will not "wake up" from sleep mode
  • Printer appears to be DOA
  • Incorrect printout
  • Slower than normal printing
  • The printer control panel display is blank or shows garbled characters
  • Accessories, such as attached copier/scanners, do not function properly
  • Monitor loses power or shuts off
  • Computer reboots when job is printing
  • Job only prints half way, causing a paper jam

If it is necessary for the product to be connected to the above-mentioned devices, consider the following items:
  • There are many UPS configurations and load conditions that can affect proper printer operation. Depending on these configurations or load conditions, printer functionality cannot be predicted.
  • No damage to current HP LaserJet products will occur, but, depending on their particular UPS configuration, the printer may or may not operate properly.
  • Printing while on a UPS battery backup is not recommended because of the large power requirements of HP LaserJet products.
  • If the HP LaserJet printer is not operating properly and power line conditions are suspected, try a different circuit (a different wall plug located away from the current one), or try removing it from the UPS.

If you need more help come back.Post / thumbs / testimonial are welcome!

Printer makes noise before it starts printing


If it's a high pitched squeal it means the bearings in the laser assembly are worn out, the laser assembly in this model can be very expensive, just a guess since I can't hear the noise in person.

HP LaserJet 3055 not powering on


Possible noisy laser unit or fan. Most likely the laser unit.

However,

You can pull the fuser out by pulling the rear door ALL THE WAY DOWN and remove 2 large screws and pull the rear cover off, then the the left and right small covers, the plastic guide on the bottom and 2 fuser screws. Be careful with the small wires on the right side.

You have to remove all covers to get to fan and laser which is a triangular shaped black box under the top cover.

LaserJet 1200 Stops pulling paper


If the printer works fine for you, but doesn't work properly for someone else I would assume user error. Just make sure that there is plenty of paper in the tray and that it is centered. Also look around for any small peices of paper that might've gotten stuck near the tray, preventing new sheets from getting pulled.

High pitch squeal, not picking up paper


it's not the gear..you are having a seized mechanism, most likely from something stuck in there.
