Question about Xerox WorkCentre XD100 All-In-One Laser Printer

High pitch squeal, not picking up paper

I have a XL2140DF model, which is basically an XD100 model. I've got some gear "clicking" when the motor is spun by hand, but when powered up you get a very loud squeal for about 15 seconds. Then the motor stops and so does the squeal. If you press "S" to make a copy, it makes a squeal for 15 seconds and does not grab the paper and displays a "P", for either out of paper or paper jam - both incorrect. I believe a gear is broken. You also smell a faint smell like maybe burning plastic. I disassembled the back of the copier and carefully examined all gears on the metal plate that drives the toner, drum, and fuser. There all appear to be intact and functioning ok. Before I buy a bunch of gears to replace a questionable gear, can you tell me which gear to look at or where to look for another problem? I was thinking it was the fuser drive doublet gear, but it appears okay, it does click when turned backwards by hand. But I don't think this gear has anything to do with picking up the paper.

    I think the seized mechanism is caused by 2 gears that aren't sync'ing on the gear train. 2 different gears drive the drum cartridge. Both gears are synced together. I took the back of the copier off again and reexamined the gear train, and experimented by engaging the cartridges on it and turning by hand. I found a 55 tooth/19 tooth gear that drives the drum along with another gear. Well, the 19 tooth gear is "chewed up a little", possibly enough to lose the sync, and cause the squeal, seizing, and plastic "burn" smell I mentioned earlier.



    Luckily, I have an XD100 copier, that use both the same fuser and drum as this broken copier. I swapped the drum and fuser into the good copier, from my bad copier. Both the fuser and drum worked in the good copier. So I've eliminated those parts.



    So, I hoping this gear solves the problem. All other gears turn fine, and engage the paper feed, etc.



    Thank you for your help. Aloha.

It's not the gear..you are having a seized mechanism, most likely from something stuck in there.

My Hp 1200 laser printer makes a high pitched squealing noise and I have to pull the plug out to stop it.


The fuser is the part of the printer that heats the toner to the paper. turn the printer around and open the back cover. You should see a long black bar with green clips on either side to release a paper jam. There may also be rollers in there. Make sure there is no debris in the fuser, and that those clips are in the functioning position (usually down). If the fuser is removable, which I don't think it is in this model, take it out and then reinstall it. Then give it a shot. Usually though high pitched squeal is a toner cartridge thing. If you are using reman cartridges try a new (actual hp) cartridge from office depot or staples.

High pitched squeal


Hi...

Does the squeal come from the TV cabinet or the speaker?
If from the cabinet , it's most likely the Horizontal high-voltage section of the set.
Find someone that's good with hand tools,unplug the set from the wall outlet, let it sit for a good 30 minutes.
have someone open up the back of the set and dust out and vacuum out any dust from inside the set.
Put back together and try it out.

RCA Model f27650 High pitch squeal


the high pitch squeal indicates shorted component/s. the transformer goes hot co'z its being overloaded by the shorted component, it too could be the one creating the squeal!!

if you have experience with electronic troubleshooting, try to test some of the components particularly on the secondary part of the transformer.
Be careful and make sure the TV set is unplugged.
test for shorted diodes and transistors, if you're in doubt of your readings try to desoldering one leg of the diode then proceed with the testing/measuring. replace any of the bad components you find exactly with same part number or replacements with the same rating.

spend more time on it resoldering some other cold soldered components.
