If you cant get paper out from inside after removing cartridge then there is No easy fix, and the roller at rear is called a fuser, these parts dont come out easy,machine will need all covers removed, plugs disconnected and brackets removed, gears pulled off and fuser removed, maybe replaced if there is a reason why it wrapped around roller

SOURCE: Roller

Try changing completely or at least first cleaning the glassy surface of the toner cartridge first. You can do it with a cotton swab by sweeping the black toner from the surface while manually turning the gear on the side of the cartridge.

Please Follow the instructions in an attempt to resolve the issue you are facing:

  • Turn off the printer and remove all paper from the paper tray & disconnect it from the computer.
  • With the printer off, check for any obstructions such as torn paper or foreign objects.
  • Turn on the printer (still disconnected from the computer) and check the lights / lcd screen.

Still getting the same error ? Go for Warranty or Service.

Else,

  • Place 20-30 sheets of paper in the printer, ensuring none of the paper is torn or creased.
  • Make sure that the paper is flush with the far right edge of paper tray, move the left edge paper guide over so that it touches the left side of the paper.
  • Try to feed paper manually (using the paper feed button).

If you still get the error let me know for further troubleshooting,

Dont vote till you find it is Helpful or FixYa.

Thanks,
Scott

SOURCE: HP Officejet Pro L7580 ADF will not pick up paper

You can lift the top of the unit to inspect the rollers. Be careful because the L series the roller can pop off easily and if you're not paying attention to original orientation, can be a pain to put back in.. you press the blueish button to release the pick up assembly. See if any rollers are dusty. If they are, use Isopropyl alcohol (highest % you can find) and a LINT FREE cloth (dryer sheets/coffee filters or something of that nature..) and wipe clean

Hope this helps, I'm honestly doing all this from memory, I used to work for that dept here in Oregon ..

SOURCE: My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly

Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

Why is ricoh 6330n making a loud noise while it is printing?


Check the transfer roller (the sponge roller) there will be a gear on that roller. Lubricate is with some spray on lube.

Printer HL-3070CW - LOUD Grinding noise when it seems to be running large print offs. It is almost like it gets too hot


My 3070CW makes the same noise. It is caused by the transfer belt. One roller is driven by a cog and this goes fine. The other roller has a tensioner and this roller is making all the noise. While the noise is really loud and annoying - it is completely harmless. Hope this helps.

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.


noise is caused by the toner cartridge and paper is not going trough because there is a plastic milar clse to the feed roller that is bent,find it and push it towards the inside of printer (is a black or dark brown plastic mylar)

HP Business Ink-jet 1200 1) when it starts printing and the paper feeds it makes an extremely loud clunk sound regardless of the paper tray being used. 2) each and every time the paper comes through it...


The pickup roller is problematic. First clean, then replace if necessary.

The part should be under $20.

To replace (from HP Support):

1. Unplug the power cord from the
printer, and allow the printer to cool.

2. Open the toner cartridge door, and
remove the toner cartridge.

3. Locate the pickup roller.

4. Release the small, white tabs on
each side of the pickup roller by
pushing them away from the roller,
and then rotate the pickup roller
toward the front.

5. Gently pull the pickup roller up and
out.

6. Position the new pickup roller in the
slot of the previous pickup roller.

Note Circular and rectangular pegs on each
side prevent you from incorrectly
positioning the pickup roller.

7. Rotate the top of the new pickup
roller into position until the white
tabs on each side of the roller snap
the roller into place.

8. Reinstall the toner cartridge, and
close the toner cartridge door.

9. Plug the printer in to turn it back on.

Hope this helps.

My HP laserjet 1200 is making a terrible noise when printing - do you have to oil the rollers?


No Please don't oil any part of the printer, oiling may damage the complete printer first check if the nopise is coming from rear, Top, Front or side.
If noise is coming from Top than possibly top outbin roller are making noise.
If side tham may be toner cartridge or cartridge motor is making.
If noise is coming from rear than either fuser or the gear which rotates the fuser are making noise.
If noise is coming from from than Tray 2 pickup assembly or faulty tray is making noise possibly faulty registration assembly can also mak noise none of the part should be oiled only the faulty part should be replaced.
