I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.

sounds very much like the bearing has seized on the drum.
can you turn it by hand?
I'm betting it's either stuck or REALLY stiff

Laser printer makes light clicking noise when idle


When idle is potentially the fuser unit, after heating and cooling. However the print quality issue associated with the clicking sound could indicate an electrical issue. The HVPS maybe faulty causing the print quality issue (due to dependant parts) and the electrical click. In any case I would recommend calling Brother and finding the nearest authorised service agent.

When I go to print or copy the machine makes a loud clicking noise and then says paper jam. Brother MFC - 8460 N


Hello,
The loud clicking noise is either the toner cartridge or the paper feed. If the jam occurs in the drum and toner cartridge then I recommend changing the toner.
If the paper is not being fed at all then you need to have the paper feed kit replaced.
Thanks,
Pat

I have an HL-5280DW it keeps making this loud ticking sound when I go to print and it said to replace the drum and I did and it continues to make the loud ticking/popping sound. What should I do?


Take out the drum and toner shut the door and power up, if the noise is still there during the power up short run, you probably need a new fuser. If the noise goes away with toner and drum removed you probably need a new toner. New ones, especially generic toners are too hard to turn and make that noise.

HP Color Laserjet 2840 now makes ear-splitting whine every time


Did the noise start right after you replaced a toner? If so it must be a bad toner which is causing the gears to grind. If this noise happened out of the blue then it might be a bad fuser drive gear which is the gears that connect the fuser to the machine.

Making a clanking noise when printing


Could be a fuser gear is broken or a Toner gear is about to break. Needs TLC by a Authorized Tech.

Replaced printer drum but still printing with vertical lines


Hi dermtex,
since the faint lines are vertical, I think there is some thing distored the laser beam, try clean the lenses of the laser unit by clean soft cloth.
hope this helpful for you,
thanks
