SOURCE: Loud clattering noise

-Open the Front Cover. -Remove the Toner Cartridge -Remove the Drum Cartridge -Next locate the black gear attached to the end of the Drum and turn it with your fingers. -Check to see if the gear is locked, or difficult to turn. The gear will only turn in one direction. -If the gear won't turn at all, or if it catches while you are turning it, or if you hear the same noise when you turn the gear that you heard when the machine was on, the Drum Cartridge is the cause and will need to be replaced.

I'm sorry to tell you, this is likely a drum issue.

You probably need to have a certified engineer examine the machine.

Have you tried speaking with the local service center to see if they have experienced similar issues? It might be free information.

SOURCE: Xerox XD130df empties toner back into cartridge overflow

that really sounds like a defective toner cartridge. Either there was no developer in the cartridge or the metering blade that limits the ammount that gets onto the roller is bad.
Has to be the toner cartridge. Unfortunatly that may have also ruined the drum and cleaner within the drum cartridge. Return them for an exchange.
The reason it is running and running is that it is trying to read a patch that is developed on the drum and add toner to make a dark enough copy. And that definatly is not happening.
If the laser was not turning on, the machine would come up with a L something code. Besides if the laser was not comming on, the paged would be blank.
You can pretty much eliminate everything but the toner cartridge.

SOURCE: I have a Xerox XC1255.

That is no good at all, that means the fuser is having physical problems, or the controller of the fuser has failed. Either way it is very bad news... It basically means the printer is going to need repairs. Seeing how old this printer is and what the cost of repairs is sure to be it is hardly worth it. You can get a new laserjet printer for only $125, which is probably less than half of what it will cost in parts alone to fix that Xerox. Here is the printer I speak of or $125:

That is my recommendation for sure. Hopefully you can possibly return the toner you purchased.. if not you can sell it on ebay as being brand new, installed and used less than X number of times. Someone will definitely purchase it from you.

Sorry about the bad news there :(

How to make a copy on sharp 1540

When the button is pressed to copy, the copier makes a noise,which is not normal, then puts the copies through, but they are blank. no indicators are showing.


There is one simple thing you can try. Open the right side door, then the front door. Slide the toner cartridge out. Then slide the drum cartridge partially out then lightly "slam" it back in to reseat the drum cartridge. Re-install the toner then close the front and right side doors. Try a copy and see if this has repaired the problem. If not then try opening and closing the right side door another time or two. If this works then great. If not then you will need to call your local service company to have the machine looked at. Most of my customers have had either the right side door open/close or the removal/re-installation of the cartridges resolve their problem.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

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

Ricoh 4220 copier. I replaced toner cartridge and


I suggest removing the toner, and visually inspecting it, make sure the sealing tab has been removed, give it a really good shake, as the toner may have settled in storage. re-insert the cartridge making sure it goes in the right way.


If you can hear a slight 'clicking' noise it's adding toner and pumping it into the developer unit, some machines take 2 minutes, some take 6..

Failing that, lift the platen cover and do a few black copies, so you force the machine to add toner.

Goodluck.

Copier making loud noise


Remove the drum/toner unit and close the top,...does it still make the noise? If so, there is a paper jam in the fuser section (left side)
I also have a Canon PC900 series copier....mine does not have the automatic document feeder, however the machine is the same....If the noise persists, you will probably need to replace the Fixing (fuser) Unit drive gears (worst case senerio) perhaps you can locate the jam in the fuser and "carefully" remove without damaging the Fixing Belt....good luck

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.

Xerox WCP 416 , it showed message replace drum cartridge


It sounds like you are replacing the toner cartidges NOT the Drum Unit. Drum is located behind the toner cartidge and you will see it after removing toner. Pretty common mistake :)
