Question about HP LaserJet P2015dn Printer

1 Answer

The laser makes a grinding noise, won't pick up the paper and stops after one or two pages, if it prints at all. The triangle light goes on. We're in the middle of a huge project and have a lot to print. Can you help? Thanks

    Thanks - I have found a certified HP dealer and have an appointment for maintenance and replacement of the fuser on Tuesday in the city that is closest to us - about an hour away.

    Again, thank you for your help.

The most common issue is the fuser. Either the gear is broken on the fuser, or the bushing is worn out.

I recommend you take the unit in for service.

    Please rate the solution that I gave you.

    Also, if it is the fuser, your looking at approx. $90-$120 for the part and approx. $50-$85 for labor.

    My printer has over 100K of copies and started to make grinding noise. The paper would mispick. I found the problem to be that the paper tray is not fully closed and sometimes it gets pushed out slightly by the pickup. Once I closed the paper tray firmly and completely, the mispicking and grinding stopped.

Paper is not being picked up and fed through.


Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Gringing noise when printer boots up and when it prints


Probably worn gears for the rollers along the paper path or the gears that mesh with the imaging roller in the toner cartridge. Remove the toner cartridge and reseat it. Also look for any rounding of the gear teeth on any of the rollers while you have to cartridge out.

Paper jam Lexmark E250d


I hate to state the obvious and I am not patronising you, but is the rear door fully closed (did it click into place) - probably. I wonder how many pages the printer has printed? If you are lucky you might be able to print out a demo page (hold the "okay" button down - the large one with the diamond/triangle on it). If it is a high number (say over 10,000 pages) then perhaps the paper pick rollers have stopped working? Also, what paper are you using? Heavy (100gsm or above) or thin (under 75 gsm) may have feed problems.

If this doesn't work you could always try printing to the rear door - this would probably stop the jam hopefully. This would enable you to print a demo page at least so you can see its page output.

Hope this helps you out.

GRINDING NOISE or PAPER JAM


If you are not a technical person best thing to do is to show it to an expert. grinding noise means some part in the machine is running with the friction. and might brake something or scratch something. Find out persons who work on photocopiers in your area either samsung or Xerox. as this model comes with both the companies and Xerox people are generly better than samsung people.

Paper transport does not work; terrible grinding noise


I took mine apart from the back and put it back together and it worked. It is probably due to moving it and the bottom paper tray alignment gets out of whack. I inspected all of the gear train and didn't find any worn or missing teeth. I suspect a paper jam started it and the user turned the printer around to open the back door. Since the handles are on the printer the tray doesn't move with it which allows it to separate and possibly jam a pickup drive gear.
