Question about Xerox WorkCentre 6605/DN Color Laser Multifunction Printer

1 Answer

What is the cause and solution of a grinding noise when printing from a xerox workcentre 6605dn color laser

There is an interment grinding or loud gear noise that starts shortly after the printer starts running and persists after the page is out while the printer is still running. I have done all the routine maintenance and inspected the unit. The only possibility that I can see is there is a spring tensioned gear set on the duplex unit/transfer roller that is on the back panel/door. My thought is that if that gear set is not held firmly enough against the mating gears then it may be the cause. However the spring appears to be good and everything looks like it is correct. It makes this sound printing 2 sided, 1 sided, from the bypass tray, and regular tray, in color and B&W.

Defiantly a main drive issue, slipping belt can make the noise you described, sometimes the pulley gets tight or the tensioner binds causing the belt to slip

What is the cause and solution of a loud grinding noise coming from a xerox workcentre 6605 when printing


Sometimes when the toners get low on toner you will hear the gears grinding, or if there is an obstruction in the waste toner auger. Also check the drum units to make sure they are turning freely.

XEROX WORKCENTRE 7328 IS RUNNING SLOW WHILE PRINTING PDFs


Are you printing to the printer using the Xerox Global Print Driver PCL6? If so, this will be the cause of your problem. Earlier versions of the driver werent as bad when processing PDF documents. I would suggest that you download the Workcentre 7328 PCL6 driver and try that - the problem should clear.

Cheers

Jon.

Xerox 6360dn, Tray 2 makes loud grinding noise when printing. Tray 1 is as quiet as a mouse. Replaced tray 2 with a known good tray and it still makes grinding noise.


In my experience, it was the registration roller causing the grinding noise. See http://my.brainshark.com/Phaser-6300-6350-6360-Grinding-Noise-795590408 for troubleshooting video.

My xerox 3119 frequently pick up more than 1 paper during printing. It cause paper jam and make it very hard to print of both side of the paper. Can you help me solve this problem?


The xerox laser printer rollers have shrunk, causing the paper to be picked up in multiple.

Try to fan the paper before adding it to the paper tray.
