Question about HP LaserJet 2200D Printer

2 Answers

Screeching noise My hp 2200d does the exact same thing. Starts making screeching noise and won't print anything. There is no paperjam. I managed to get it to work once before when it did this by pushing the tiny white rest button on the circuit board , but it won't work this time. If you know the solution to this problem, please let me know. I hate buying new printers. thanks.

Taken from / and definitely works. Don't touch the shiny hexagon part when doing this.

If you hear the squeal, then it is the laser/scanner motor in the laser/scanner assembly. It can sometimes be fixed but you have to be careful. You have to remove the top cover and the big black box in the center is the laser/scanner assembly. Sometimes you can access the motor by just removing all the cables from the laser/scanner and then removing the screws which hold the cover on the laser/scanner assembly and remove the cover. If you can not access it that way, then you have to remove the 4 additioal screws which secure the assembly to the frame. Now once you have access, the motor is the silver colored round item in the back of the assembly mounted on a small circut board. Remove the circut board and remove it from the laser/scanner assembly. If you look real close there is a small white plastic piece which holds the round motor piece in place. Use a needle nose pliers to remove that white plastic piece, but do not lose it. Now you can remove the round piece from the motor itself. Now here is where you have to be very careful. You will want to use 1 or 2 very small drops of light machine oil (tri-flo or similar) into the motor shaft. I would just use 1 drop and it should all disappear down the shaft. If you can see the top of the oil you put in to much. Now put the shaft and round piece back on, put the while locking plastic piece back on and reassemble and it may just work just fine. If not then the complete laser/scanner needs to be replaced.

The toner frequently clots (for lack of a better term. Take the toner cartridge out and try to rotate the gear. DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM. If it will not turn freely, replace the toner cartridge. To prevent, the printer should be in an area of low humidity.

SOURCE: hp laserjet makes a continuous screeching noise when plugged in and will not print.

I have an identical situation. I have isolated the source of the loud screech to the (laser scanner assembly) p/n RGO-1041. The unit is located underneath the top cover, where the printed paper rests after it is ejected. I had to remove the right and left side covers, then remove the three screws holding down the top cover. There are two screws up front and one to the rear, it then lifts straight up. The laser scanner has a ribbon cable, and four purple wires going to it, oh yeah there is a big yellow warning label, so you can't miss it. I hope this helps. Sorry, I accidentally posted this in problem section.

SOURCE: ''clicking'' noise started randomly- cant use printer

Hi starrz54,

Here is the HP site that talks about resolving unexpected noises (such as clicking)...

You also might try doing a full reset on the device. Here is how to do that: While switching on the scanner press # and 9 to initialize.
This should give you some good directions and if it does not resolve the issue, the next step would be to have it serviced or replaced.

SOURCE: The printer makes a noise that sounds like a

It sounds like the cleaning sled is binding. Likely due to ink sludge build up in the waste station. Look into the printer, on the right side, where the cartridge rest when not in use. If this area looks very inky your printer may need servicing.

Says paper jam but NO paper is in the machine

One problem i found with those printers is that over time the casting around the paper tray is wearing off and printers starts to show paperjams when there is no paperjam.
One way to fix is try and positions the paper tray better or perhaps raising it a bit with piece of wood or paper.
Cast unfortenately is too expensive to replace so if this doesnt work and you are sure there is no paperjam and nothing obstructing the sensor then replace the printer.

Printer not printing

If this printer has the duplexor feature there is a plate just above the paper tray and the paper may be stuck in there. Pull out the paper tray and look for a sorta blue button on the top right side inside of the printer. Push that button and the duplexor tray will drop down and that is where the paper may be hiding.
