Question about Sharp AL-1655CS Laser Printer

1 Answer

Mechanical problem As soon as i close the side cover, i can hear a loud noise, which sounds like a non-engaging gear. I initially thought it might be related to the drum. So, I removed the drum only and put back the cartridge before i close the front cover, followed by the side cover. As soon as i close the side cover again, i can hear the exact loud noise again. I even tried different cartridges and drums, but in vain. I would appreciate if anyone can help me out. Thank you

Kenny, It is the fuser and maybe even the fuser drive gear.

How do I remove the cover from an HP Deskjet 5740 printer


No need to open its cover. that is normal, when the print is first start the mechanical parts are re-adjusting and re-alignment its system to start printing.

My xerox machine is making really loud funny noise that are unusual, it makes the noise while it is warming up and until it prints, it is out of the ordernary sounds that we hear from it. it is more of a...


could be a few things... take out the drum and make sure the toner is put back in. then keep the right side door open and push the silver metal flap down near the back of the door opening (its the interlock that tells the machine the right side door is closed) and see if the noise occurs. if it does then you no its not the drum. so u can reinstall it. try to pin point the source of the sound with the right side door open. could be one of the many gears in back or the fuser (which is above the green colored drum) 4 screws and one wire harness takes off the fuser and u can physically inspect to see if the gears are missing any teeth or the bushings are broken. if all looks well then reinstall turn machine around and take off the back cover (6 screws) wiggle it off and turn the machine on and look closely at all the gears on the left(looking at the back) top side. when it starts it warm up process check to see if any gears are making the sound or cracked. if those gears are shot u mught need a new main drive assembly which is really difficult and time consuming to repair.

try cleaning the tires with alcohol,see if they pick up.

are they real smooth to the touch or do they have a rough edge?

the loud clicking sound maybe a clutch or gear trying to engage and is slipping.

Loud grinding noise Toshiba 1550


It is one of three problems,
1- the developper is starting to go bad, unfortunately with toshiba it is a common problem the seals go bad in the unit the gears are very hard to turn giving a loud grinding noise, although you can rebuild the unit by changing the seals, it's VERY messy and they don't always work ( after spending all that time cleaning and changing the seals and gears and it didn't work, I just started to change the DV unit.) Test by taking out and turning the gear by hand, if you need a plier to turn it, it's bad.
2-the toner itself is a problem, take out the toner and look at wherre it sits there is a gear that turns the toner to feed it in the machine, if it's dirty and has toner it will make noise, test by taking out toner and close machine, does it make the noise without it?
3- cleaning section where the drum is, this is what turns to feed excess toner into the small pastic container, aggravating but not a mechanical problem. And also check the fuser ( where it gets hot)

I think I've covered everything for that machine.

Good luck

Loud clicking noise


Power the machine on with drum and toner removed, check for noise....

It will be either the Fuser, Toner or the drum.

If it is non gen. or refill toner, fault found.

The drum is a normal consumable that you change every 3 to 4 toner cartridges, so if any of you have used more than 4 toners and havent changed the drum, I'd say that we have found your problem.

......now to the hangers on .....

Fuser, thats the hot bit at the back, these have a gear that cracks because the whole fuser assemble is old, brittle and stiff, you can pull it all apart and change the gear and be off, but soon it will more than likely break again, I know cause if I do that as the fix they come back within 6mnts.

Replace fuser, or have it replaced

Fuser is a HiVolt, HiTemp part. Caution!!!!

Printer makes extremely loud clicking noise


http://printer.konicaminolta.com/support/current_printers/mc2430dl_sup.htm#Printer_Specific_Documentation The user guide should be helpful to you to pinpoint what is causing the noise. Sounds like the belt drive or gears may be having a problem. Let me know what happens. Tim
