The fuser gears brake alot on these because of the heat. Open the flip down cover on the fuser when it is cooled off and try rotating the roller by hand look into the right side to see that the gear is rotating with the roler if not your sharp dealers should be able to get you the part for around $22 and they could put it in for an hour of labor.

SOURCE: sound during paper take up.

is it a clicking noise? If so, pull out the toner unit and the drum unit-is there any toner(and developer) spilled into the back of the machine where the toner unit came from? If so, this will have found its way into the feed clutches at the back causing them to jump gears and slip the drive....you can vacuum out the spill but it is a fairly involved job to clean out the clutches, let's just hope I'm wrong.Other than that more info is required to make a half reasonable guess at the problem

You have a door on the right side of the machine. in that door is a thin piece of wire mounted inside a bracket. The bracket is white and is at an angle in the door. Do you see that now?

SOURCE: double left line down the side of paper

Sounds like the drum surface has been damaged by some foreign object.

Typically when you get imaging errors such as lines from top to bottom of a page there is a permanent scratch on the drum surface. Pull the drum unit out of the printer/copier and carefully examine the drum surface, you most likely will see the damage quite easily. The only repair is to replace the drum unit with a new one. HOWEVER... be sure to clean the inside of the machine with a toner vacuum to remove any dirt, debris or paperclips, staples, etc that might have accidentally been introduced into the unit.

Hope this helps you out.

Cheers,

Keith

Canon imageclass d340 making a loud clicking sound


It sounds like you may have sheared a gear tooth off the roller drive or the traversing mechanism. If you are getting copies just leave it alone.

In the middle of printing out 8x10 photos, it stopped picking up the photo paper. Makes a grinding sound twice, then beeps error.


Hello Lynell,
Unfortunately, printers only last for about 3 years or up to 5 years if it's a more expensive model. Try a Google search or YouTube search for DIY repairs on the model you own. You may find some helpful information on how to repair your printer. Or, it may be time to get a new one. If that's the case, see if Best Buy will give you a trade in price on something new. Best of luck!

My HP LaserJet 4L printer just makes a grinding sound when I attempt to get it to print. It makes the sound for several seconds and then the Paper light starts to flash without printing


Common issue with these older 4L printers. The problem is a small plastic gear on the main drive motor has cracked. This is what causes the noise and since the machine is not "running" there is no paper feed and thus the paper jam light. Basically there is no drive to any of the printers components. May be hard to find a replacement motor these days but that is what you would need to fix the printer.

My HP LaserJet 4L printer just makes a grinding sound-won't print


That printer has a gear on the motor that cracks. You can fix it with a new or used motor. Or get a different machine on craigslist. Thank you, Steven 805-520-3003

Copier jamming/copy printing sideways


If it jams every copy then it sounds like the paper tray size is not programmed properly. This is also why the print is the wrong direction on the page. So the copier thinks it has 8.5X11 loaded like this > -- and instead it is loaded like this > |
I hope that makes sense. So this not only causes the print to be the wrong direction but since the paper dimension are different that what the machine expects then it throws the sensor timing off and results in a paper jam. So just open your paper trays and check the paper size dials in the trays to make sure they match the paper size AND direction of the paper loaded into that tray.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Prints only top half of photos on top half of


I suggest that you go into the printer properties section on control panel. There Will be a section which allows you to tell the printer the type of paper, size desired, orientation of photo to horizon and etc. There is also likely a selectable setup procedure on the printer's own display to do the same... It sounds like a basic setup format issue....

Ink Color Issues


Did you change any of the configurations on your printer. Most photo printers have color settings that are media dependent. It sounds like you might have it set to print on regular paper but not on photo paper. There are a lot of settings that you can accidentally change on a printer so I would suggest uninstalling the printer then reinstalling it and see if that is the issue.

Printer and Making Copies does not work!


Will the machine run a paper path test?
This sounds like it could be a sensor indicating a paper jam, if this is the case, it won't run anything through the paper path (not even a blank page).
