It sounds like a bit of paper is stuck somewhere in the paper feed route. Remove the toner cartridge and any other bits that pull out. Removable bits often have a green tag or finger grips moulded in to them. Do a careful check in the printer for any bits of paper or even a full sheet stuck somewhere. Carefully remove all rubbish and reassemble.

HP 1315v Printer Makes grinding noise and won't feed paper anymore


It sounds as though a sheet of paper or an envelope bunched up and has jammed inside. Until that is removed from the feed roller, you will continue to hear the 'grinding' sound, and won't be able to print anything. Remove the cover from the backside of the machine, then locate and remove the obstruction. If you don't have any such obstruction then you have a mechanical defect which is not user repairable.

My Dell 2135cn printer all the sudden started making crazy loud grinding noises. Then I got a paper jam. I fixed the paper jam and tried to print again, but got the loud grinding noises and paper jam...


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.

I was in the process of making copies, when my Epson RX700 suddenly made a loud grinding noise. It then stopped working and displayed an error message: Scanner error occurred...Please see...


There are two drives in the printer. One moves the print head (cartridge) back and forth across the paper. Check to see if the "rubber band" drive belt is slipping or broken off. There is also a roller motor which feeds the paper. This has nylon gears which can make a grinding sound if one of the gears gets stuck. Make sure there are no pieces of paper stuck in the gears.

Printer is grinding


sounds Like a paper jam , Plus your paper feed rollers are dirty, clear any paper inside the printer, the using a cloth rag and some 409 cleaner , wipe feed rollers to remove white paper dust on rollers, and let dry, then add paper to printer and it should print.

Grinding noise when printing and cuts paper


There may be something stuck in the area of the perforation, like a paper clip, paper debris or some foreign material. I would look in that area with a flashlight and see if there is something in the Paper feed roller area.Something may have come loose if you had a paper jam. Let me know.

My printer, makes a grinding noise, when the paper is feeding through when printinig?


Look to make sure that there isn't a small bit of paper caught in the wheels that push the paper through. Over time, even a small bit in the corner can destroy your printer.
