Open Question

My printer makes this high pitch squeal after most (but not all) black and white prints. What should I do?

The high pitch noise only occurs after black and white print jobs. It doesn't make the noise after color prints. I've changed the toner cartridge - twice - and the noise continues. It typically abates when the cartridge is first installed or if I take out the cartridge and shake it then reinstall. All three of the black toner cartridges have been remanufactured.

SOURCE: switching between color and black and white

Go here. In the search box in the center of the screen, type "print with black ink only" and click Search. Choose the appropriate link, and you will get instructions for printing from either Windows or Mac.

SOURCE: new cartridge won't print

  1. Make sure you removed the tape from the ink cartridge.
  2. Press the <Menu> button on the printers operation panel.

  3. Press the left [<] or right [>] arrow buttons to select [MAINTENANCE].

  4. Press the <Set> button.

  5. Press [<] or [>] to select the cleaning setting you want. Select [HEAD CLEANING] for normal print head cleaning. Select [HEAD REFRESHING] for deep print head cleaning.

    Note: [HEAD REFRESHING] uses more ink than [HEAD CLEANING], so perform [HEAD REFRESHING] only when necessary.

  6. Press <Set>.

  7. Print a Nozzle Check Pattern and perform at least two Head Refreshing if the pattern is not correct.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

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


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.

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.

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 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.


noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)
