Check cartridges if colors installed properly. Print heads can be damaged. If still under warranty Epson will exchange if free, if not call tech support.

Kyocera 250ci making grinding noise


First you have to check the counters to see how many pages were printed or copyed. It may be a problem with some of the color drum units. At this model you need to change the units near to 100.000 A4 prints with 5% coverage. If the coverage is greater, then you'll need to change them sooner. There might be another cause for the sound, like the Transfer Belt Unit. This unit has a "waste toner path" that might be jamed. The unit is not able to get rid of this waste toner and some gears produce that noise. The transfer belt unit is working separatly for black prints and color print. You will have to remove the Transfer Belt Unit and clean the toner path with a vaccum cleaner.

Why does it make grinding noise when printing?


Check the toner cartridge and the fuser unit for worn gears.

Grinding noise


I just chatted with Dell support about this since I have the same problem of the grinding noise on my C1760NW Dell printer. I have it plugged into an APC backup battery which acts like surge protector (unless power goes out then battery kicks in). He said the printer needs more power and that surge protectors and battery backups are not good for this printer since they restrict the power which sends less power to the motor and fuser than what it was designed for. So with less power from the APC backup/surge protector, the motor moves very slow and may not fuser the toner to the page correctly and can cause permanent damage over time. So I plugged into the wall directly instead and the grinding noise went away immediately even when printing 10-15 pages right after plugging into wall, but then the noise came back when I printed a bigger job. So for now I'm letting it cool down for a couple hours and crossing my fingers that the damage is not permanent. So... answer is plug it into the wall directly for maximum power and hope that your printer is not permanently damaged. By the well, Dell support chat was awesome.

The Grinding Noise has something to do with the scanner not the Printing Part, I think the scanner could have something stuck on the moving tray....!!!!!!

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

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.

Loud noise


If your also encounter prints that have a roller/crease at the right and slight crinkling at the left then your fuser should be replaced.

Printer makes noise while cleaning heads


Grinding noise is most likely caused by the carriage lock getting stuck and holding the print head at the home position. The noise is caused by the toothed belt that pulls the head back and forth, skipping over the splines on the motor drive wheel. If you have been able to print since the problem occurred, chances are that it has freed itself up and will be fine. Regarding the loss of cyan & magenta output, follow the solution given in my previous posts to complete a manual under-head cleaning cycle. This should get you going.
