    i'm beginning to have the same problem with my HP 8750 - the printer is only 4 months old or so, and it's starting to squeak a very low pitch tone as the print arm moves back and forth. I had a similar problem with an HP 1700 but no amount of grease or oil seemed to resolve the issue.

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.

Squeaky noise


You clean the printer by running cleaning pages. You can find "Cleaning Page" in your printers menus. As for the "squeaky noise", I have found it is the worst with "recycled" toner and toner kits. Finding the cause of the squeak is a very difficult thing to do. You will need to remove the front, back and sides of your printer and check all the nooks and crannies for the squeaky wheel. I have been able to remove the squeak by installing a manufacturer original toner. "Cleaning" the rollers usually has nothing to do with the squeak.

OKI C700 printer making squeaky noise when printing?could it be the cartridge- changed few hours ago?Thanks


If the squeak only developed after changing the toner cartridge then I would say yes it could very well be the cartridge. Particularly if it is a generic brand.
I have found that most squeaks in printers are caused by the toner/drum cartridge

My HP 6180 has very squeaky feed wheels. Is there


At the back of the printer is a door. Open door and put some very thin oil(firearm or sewing machine oil works well) either sides of the shaft that the black rollers are on.



Good luck

Not printing too well


Do use genuine brother ink for testing: If you're lucky the filter in front of the nozzles (which is part of the printhead) is not clogged. Do the power cleaning twice: power up. push menu then start mono then four times arrow up. machine will display maintenance. push arrow up several times til 7 is displayed then Enter then arrow up til 6 is displayed. Push Enter. push arrow up til 3 then Enter: P cleaning_all Push start/mono. After machine has finished maintenance will be displayed. push arrow up til 0 (zero) then enter then puh arrow up til 9. machine will print a test sheet. Repeat procedure above if no good result. After three times without success the printhead is clogged due to wrong ink. ...and do use dye-ink only for brother printers (pigmented ink will clog the filter!)
