Here are some possible reasons why your printer is beeping:
1. Your printer is connected to a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). When the printer goes through the printing cycle it uses a massive amount of electricity. During those few seconds of power usage, the UPS will beep indicating that it will not be able to sustain that power output for any period of time.

How to fix: Move your printer to another outlet and don't connect it to a UPS
2. You have an MFP (multi-function printer) that is attempting to fax again and again. When sending a fax, it's typical that the printer makes noises (dialing, connecting, etc). One of these noises is a fax response beep.
How to fix: Check your printers menu and turn off/down the fax volume
3. Some printers with an LCD menu and keypad make noise when keys are pressed or the printer encounters an alarm of some type. This can become annoying when typing keys for a phone number or by changing a menu setting.
How to fix: Check the menu settings for the printer and turn off/down the sound that's occuring. As an example, the HP LaserJet MFP series printers have the following sounds.
  • The alarm sound that the printer makes when it requires attention, such as when the all-in-one
    door is open.
  • The beeps that are emitted when you press the all-in-one control-panel buttons.
  • The phone line sounds for outgoing faxes.
  • The ring volume for incoming faxes.
As an example, change alarm volume by following these steps (using a 305X series printer)
1. Press Menu
2. Use the < or the > button to select System setup, and then press the green checkmark button
3. Use the < or the > button to select Volume settings, and then press green checkmark button
4. Press the green checkmark button to select Alarm volume
5. Use the < or the > button to select Off, Soft, Medium, or Loud
6. Press the green checkmark button to save your selection

Can not print in duplex mode I can not print


Why don't you just print the data on the one side of the page and then simply turn the page over and reinsert it into the paper feeder and then print the next bit of data, therfore you end up with both sides of the page printed without worrying about printer commands that seem to fail.

You can turn off the beeps from the admin mode. press the little button with the key on. The default logon id is 11111 then just turn off all the beeps in the tools menu. Pity the ones who have to sit next to one of these things, it's like a supermarket till. beep beep beep beep grr.

My HP 4700 printer suddenly can not print on both sides, yet it used to print on both sides. I can't see the option for duplex on its printing menu. Pls help


You can enable duplex printing from your computer, if it somehow got turned off. Open the printer program, and under Configuration Settings, click Duplex Mode, then click Enable Duplex Mode and then Apply.

At the printer, you can find the Duplex options by clicking Menu and scrolling down till you see Configure Device. Duplex is in that menu.

Loud Abnormal Sounds with each print job


It may be a paper feed issue. If using a duplexer, try removing the duplexing unit and try printing again. It's often attached to the back of a printer.

Beeping when printing


Don't want to call you wrong, but these printers don't have speakers, thus they don't have a programmed beep. You may be hearing a squeek. Sometimes the drums on the toner cartrdiges may squeek.

Beeping noise


I've had the Dell 1720dn at my desk for years. Worked flawlessly. Moved it to a different workstation and it began beeping immediately while printing. Another site said to plug it directly into the wall, instead of a battery backup. I unplugged it from the battery backup outlet, and plugged into a surge protector only outlet on the same battery backup unit.... NO MORE BEEPING. Hope this helps someone else.
