It was helpful for me to remove the toner cartridge and spray a blast of air onto any exposed rollers (inside the printer, behind where the cartridge rests) in case excess paper dust had collected and was responsible for the squeaking. However, don't go spray crazy - spray in short, quick bursts. If the equipment becomes coated with a frost of ice you're spraying too much and that could cause damage.

Can you say from where the sound comes? If from left side check the drum unit and fixing unit. If from back check if all plates or main motor, or fan are ok.
If from paper tray check for any breakage, paper leftovers,...

Hope that helped

    There are some built in auto-cleaning settings under additional functions #8, adjusting/cleaning. You put plain paper in the multi-function tray to run the transfer roller cleaning. It goes very slow so you won't be able to use the machine for 2-5 minutes. It might depend on how dirty it is too. For the Feeder cleaning put 5 sheets of letter paper in the ADF & run that. It might not get rid of the noise totally but may help if it is just caused by paper & toner dust. Done regularly it might prevent the problem. FYI, some copier techs have vacuums that do a really good job of cleaning out a dirty copier/printer/fax. Part of the service should be cleaning all the dust out whenever they work on your equipment.

The dryer squeaks loudly


The dryer has been over loaded too often. Try to determine if squeak is from the front or back. The felt pad dirty. If it is from the bottom, then the tension roller is binding and needs lubrication.
