    I'm not sure. I replaced one toner cartridge and the level of noise went down some. However, today when I printed many copies, the printer squealed, clucked, and squeaked so loudly I could barely hear myself think.

    Im currently working on a ML-4500 that has exactly the same issue, i believe it is related to the paper pick up roller do you think this likely the same issue?

Clicking noise


Check the printer thoroughly for any small pieces of paper caught on a roller in the printer. If your printer is making a grinding noise, you may have a loose gear or roller in the printer.


If the noises started shortly after you installed a toner cartridge, turn off the printer and pull out this toner cartridge. Look up into the printer where this toner went. Make sure that both the charge roller and the transfer roller are still seated in the printer properly.


  • The charge roller is a tan-colored or gray roller attached to the inside of your top lid. Remove the toner cartridge from your printer. Close the top lid halfway with the cartridge still out. You will see the charge roller come down as you lower the top lid. Make sure that the charge roller is installed correctly within the two black arms on each end and that the roller does spin freely.

  • The transfer roller is the black, spongy roller in the bottom of the printer, under the toner cartridge. Push lightly down on it at both ends to make sure it is seated properly in its housing. NOTE: Try not to touch the charge roller with your bare hands. It is susceptible to the oil and may cause a permanent fingerprint to remain on the roller surface.

  • When you have checked the charge roller and the transfer roller, look around inside the printer. See if you can find any rollers that look loose or broken inside. Also look for any loose shreds of paper. If you do find a loose or broken part, you printer will probably require service to fix the problem.

If the rollers look fine, go ahead and reinstall the toner cartridge. If the squeaking/grinding noise continues and none of the rollers looks out of place, try swapping out the toner cartridge. There is a small chance that the toner cartridge is causing the squeaking/grinding noise. If you have any extra toner cartridges in stock, try another toner cartridge and see if that clears up the noise. If you have another working printer of the same model, try swapping the toner cartridges. See if the problem follows the toner cartridge or stays with the printer.
If replacing the cartridge does not cause the noises to go away, there are a few other things you can do to help pinpoint the source of the noise.


If the noise continues on the main printer, try opening the rear exit door while printing. See if you can tell if the grinding noise might be coming from one of those rear exit rollers/gears. If it does sound like it is coming from the rear of the printer, again look for any loose or broken part or any small pieces of paper.


If you have added any additional feed options (like a tray 2 or 3 option, duplex option, or envelope feeder), please remove these options. Try printing a few prints without these feed options attached. This will eliminate one of the feed options as the cause. If the noise goes away when you remove the options, reattach them one at a time. If the noise returns on one specific option, a roller or gear on that option may be the cause of the noise.


Is your printer making a rhythmic THUMP - THUMP - THUMP - THUMP noise when printing? This noise is a side-effect of a feature called Envelope Enhance. The Envelope Enhance feature is built into the fuser unit of the printer to help keep envelopes from wrinkling. This sound is perfectly safe and normal if the printer is printing on envelopes.

If none of the above fixes eliminates the noise, the printer will probably need service to return it to working condition.

Canon Imageclass D661 printer is making a squeeky noise when printing. Sounds like whatever is turning is squeaking. Any suggestions?


How old or how much use does this machine get? The older/more use it gets, the more likely it is to start making random noises and squeaks. It could be a lose belt or just need some lubrication, but it's hard telling where exactly it would need the maintenance. As long as it's printing and copying fine, I wouldn't worry too much about it since it doesn't sound detrimental.

Hope this helps!

Our HP B8550 is squeaking when it prints. How can we fix this? It has just started doing this.


Hello

Try reinstalling the cartridge or installing another. This cartridge's yield is 2500 pages. When is very used, it could make rare sounds. Always use genuine HP cartridge.

Check the pick-up roller,If the pick-up roller has a very smooth surface, replace it.

First off put a sheet of paper on the manual feeder (tray 1) and do a self test. Does the printer still make the noise. If it does, then it is not the roller in tray 2. Only other way is to put your ear to the printer case and see if you can isolate where the noise is coming from.

There is a fuser assembly in the rear which generates heat so over time bushings can go bad and it will make noise. You really need to isolate it more. If you open and close the toner door the motor will turn for a couple of seconds. Do you hear the noises then?

Copies are coming out with a dark horizontal lines and printer is making a rather loud sound when paper is in printing process.


Two things that can cause print quality issues and noise.
1. The toner cartridge can cause lines and sometimes can make a squeaking noise.
2. The fuser can cause streaking and smudges on the prints and can cause a grinding noise if the drive gear is worn or the bushings are worn.

Squeaky HP printer


Typically the squeaking comes from the toner cartridge. If you just purchased it, take it back, it's bad. If you can find an identical printer, swap cartridges and see if it makes a difference.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking


Hi,
As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards
