Question about Printers & Copiers
When turning on our copier it makes a loud grinding noise, can you help me with the problem?
It is one of three problems,
1- the developper is starting to go bad, unfortunately with toshiba it is a common problem the seals go bad in the unit the gears are very hard to turn giving a loud grinding noise, although you can rebuild the unit by changing the seals, it's VERY messy and they don't always work ( after spending all that time cleaning and changing the seals and gears and it didn't work, I just started to change the DV unit.) Test by taking out and turning the gear by hand, if you need a plier to turn it, it's bad.
2-the toner itself is a problem, take out the toner and look at wherre it sits there is a gear that turns the toner to feed it in the machine, if it's dirty and has toner it will make noise, test by taking out toner and close machine, does it make the noise without it?
3- cleaning section where the drum is, this is what turns to feed excess toner into the small pastic container, aggravating but not a mechanical problem. And also check the fuser ( where it gets hot)
I think I've covered everything for that machine.
