Hp p4015x that is making a loud high pitch squeal

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.

Making a loud squeal or hum during


Sounds like a motor with bad bearings. In that unit it would be the water pump or condenser fan motor. If the sound is coming from inside the unit it is the water pump.

2000 Beetle Loud Whirring at start up


its your secondary air pump. it turns on in the cold morning to inject more air into your exhaust, something about emission. its normal to be high pitched. once on my car it was way loud, i looked and the hose had disconnected. either way its normal if its not super loud. but if its everyone is looking at me loud then check for loose hoses!
