Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer

GRINDING NOISE or PAPER JAM

My Samsung SCX-4521F is making a terrible grinding noise everytime I power it up or run a print/copy through it (It still print/copies but with a lot of noise).

If I pull the paper tray out there is a black toggle/finger that I can press and the machine goes through as if the paper tray was there (including the grinding noise).

The black toggle/finger is to the left of a "black rubber thing", which is positioned dead center inside the paper feed cavity. This "black rubber thing" has one white wheels on each side of it.

Now if I press the "black rubber thing" it clicks up, and then when I got to press the black toggle/finger there is no more grinding noise :-)

... but then I load the paper tray back, run a copy and the print now displays a "PAPER JAM 0" error.

I hope my not very technical description explains my issue (either grinding noise and print OR no noise and no print plus a paper jam :-)

Please help before I unleash my ninja fury on the "black rubber thing"

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.

Dear
Pl. do test as per following.
1- empty paper tray.
2- pull the toner cart. and close the door.
3- power ON the printer. Listen the sound of initial motor run,
(If smooth not grinding noise, check the toner cart OPC drum for jam. If yes check the fusser drive gear and fusser gear and assembly)
If all are ok.
4- Check the paper pick up roller shaft, (sometimes it takes a bunch of paper and jammed if you forcible pull the bunch in reverse direction the shaft may gets bend cause the grinding noise during paper pickup. in that case you have to replace the paper pickup shaft.

Samsung scx-4521f "paer jam 2"_ i've checked paper inside but i can't see any thing is jammed. if i turn off and on that time 1 paper will be printer ofter one same problem is repete. any advice sir


Sanjay,
I think you should take all unused papers out, close tray and predd print button. If there is paper in the system, it may come out. A red light may also flash asking you to load papers. Now lod the papers and the red light will go off. Put a printed paper and try copying. If it copies, you are ok. Now print from your cpmputer command. If it prints you are ok. If it does not and you get paper jam warning, there may be a small piece of paper stuck in the system. You have to open each feeder and see if you find anything. Good luck.

Ricoh CL 7100 fuser jam.


The grinding noise is the clashing of gears. The fuser is composed of 2 rollers, a metal or ceramic with a heater inside (bulb) and a silicon roller to apply pressure. The 'hot' roller is geared and the silicon roller can be geared or free floating. There is at least 1 paper sensor in the the fuser to let the unit know whether paper is there and there when it should or should not be. Sometimes, the sensor gets slightly dislodged and can actually cause a jam. If you are hearing a gear clash, the paper is being pushed through the machine and instead of being pushed through the fuser, it stops because the fuser rollers are not turning. The rest of the machine keeps pushing, crinkling the paper.
If there is crinkling, then gears that drive the fuser need to be checked. It is this gear cluster and/or the fuser that need to be replaced.

Grinding noise when printing and cuts paper


There may be something stuck in the area of the perforation, like a paper clip, paper debris or some foreign material. I would look in that area with a flashlight and see if there is something in the Paper feed roller area.Something may have come loose if you had a paper jam. Let me know.

Grinding noise on startup


Problem The Resume light continues to blink after the paper jam is cleared.
OR
The carriage is stuck or making a grinding noise. Solution 1. Lift the top cover to the printer. 2. Turn the printer off and then on again. 3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts. 4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct). 5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover. Turn the printer back on! 6. Reconnect the power cord. 7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover

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.
