My office laserjet 3055 makes some squakey noises right after is turned on and when is printing. We already tried different toner cartridges but we got the same results. Looks like the sounds come from the left hand side.

You are using the Windows XP version driver right? You can try to uninstall all the existing drivers of printers on your laptop except for those printing to document ones by using Control Panel->Printers. Then turn off your printer and restart your laptop. Then put in the CD and reinstall the driver. Follow the instruction to connect your printer to your computer with a USB cable and turn on your printer. Move the USB cable to another USB port if still no connection.
If the issue persists, you might like to use the HP troubleshooting utilities to search for it and see what the problem is related. You can download all the drivers and utilities from the following page too. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareIndex.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodNameId=1140780&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=1161389&swLang=8&taskId=135&swEnvOID=228
There are some troubleshoot links on that page too. You can also try to update the firmware on the printer if the problem persists.
Odds are that you have a bad toner cartridge; especially common when using remanufactured cartridges. (Staples, Corporate Express, etc.) Replace your cartridge with an OEM HP cartridge and you should be OK.
Hi. The fax-module in lj 3055 needs a 100% analog dial tone. You might get it working on a internet-phone-line, but HP garantees nothing because there are so many internet-phone-providers, and all of them operates with different specs and line-quality. You might try to lower the baud rate, turn off JBIG compession and error-correction. If the problem still remains, you need to replace your phone-line to a 100% analog line. Not any internet or ISDN/adapter-stuff. You should test your fax on any analog line at a friends house, just to make sure the fax i working anway.
White lines are generally caused by clogged print nozzles. I assume that you have a printer with the print heads built into the cartridge. Are you using high quality cartridges or cheap refills? If cheap refills, try a better/different brand of cartridges and see if that helps.
I would also check the printer manufacturers website and try their recommended printer nozzle cleaning procedure.
