Question about HP PSC 1315 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Grinding Noise and no printing

My printer has suddenly stopped printing. First it looked as though the ink had gone, so I changed the cartridge to a new one but it continued to print like it was running out. I tried it again several times and now the paper is coming out blank. Plus, it really doesnt sound right. When the wheels at the back where the paper goes are going round, its making a really funny grinding noise like something's not right. I've checked for a paper jam, but it all looks ok. Please Help!

    About 3 years. Does this mean I need a new one? It's when the wheels at the back start turning, it makes a horrible noise.

    So can I take it that the machine is bust and irrepairable then? Thanks for your help by the way.

Grinding is NOT cool...i'd say that you have a mechanism issue with this printer. How long have you know this printer?

    that can happen. usually this occurs when a printer has been used for particularly heavy jobs, with thicker paper. The life span of a machine is dependent on it's usage, of course, and also whatever preventative maintenance is applied.

    well, that would be a good consideration. It's the 'grinding gears' version of printers

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.

MY HP laserject P3005 printer makes alot of grinding noise but prints fine,is there anything i can do


Hi lexdalex,

Test the cartridge, if you have an old cartridge then insert the cartridge and try running a test print. If the grinding noise is gone, then it is the cleaning blade on the cartridge.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

My printer won't complete the cartridge alignment function. It only prints the first two bars and then stops. When printing the black cartridge looks faded and half printed lines across even though it is a...


My printer does the same thing. I changed the blank ink yesterday (the printer shows the black ink was low) however after trying and trying and not being able to complete the alignment I decided to change the color ink as well.
It worked. Printer works fine now. Sometimes the ink dries up and you have to change it even though you know it should last longer.
Give it a try and let me know.

HP all-in-one not printing cyan color


Place a soft clean tissue paper over the cartridge print head and leave for about eight minutes. You can secure it with the aid of a rubber band. It should be held firm ok. If the tissue paper is not dampened by ink then the cartridge would have gone bad or the ink dried. You also know that they have expiry date and could go bad while yet in the packaging b/c it has expired. Good luck

Gringing noise when printer boots up and when it prints


Probably worn gears for the rollers along the paper path or the gears that mesh with the imaging roller in the toner cartridge. Remove the toner cartridge and reseat it. Also look for any rounding of the gear teeth on any of the rollers while you have to cartridge out.
