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.

    I had a similar noise before printing and it was a bad ink cartridge. I removed them one by one and attempted to turn the gear wheel until I found one that was very difficult to turn. I replaced that cartridge and the noise was no longer an issue. Hope this helps...

While printing there is a noise


Maybe go to a local store and try a display model of the same printer and see if it makes identical sound. If it doesn't make the same, contact whoever you bought from to see about warranty or refund. Can also contact HP customer service for advice.

VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN PRINTING WITH MY SAMSUNG CLP-300


You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.
