What is the make / model of the printer ?
also, remove cartridges and blot them on a folded paper towel. If they have ink, you will see ink dots on paper tower, otherwise they may be empty.

Unit makes every noise and motion as if printing, but pages blank


First thing is if you haven't printed for while the ink may have dried in the print head. Run it through a few (lots) of print cycles and see if that starts to bring it back to life.

Check to make sure that you have the paper thickness set close enough.

My bet would be on the print head being clogged.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking


Hi,
As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards

Printer wont print, but it is going through the motions.


If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

Noisy operation and black marks on left side of printed paper


vacuum out the waste toner passages that lead from the drum and transfer belt to the waste toner container. Toner is building up inside the transfer belt and/or drum and has no place to go except onto your paper.

Stalled printer cartridges


Sounds like an issue with the print carriage. When it's out of alignment and tries to print, it can make awful noises. HP.com has a web page that describes a number of troubleshooting steps when you have print carriage issues:

Carriage Jam Errors

There's also a related web page having to do with the noise coming from the printer:

Noisy Print Carriage

Hope this helps. Good luck.

Doesn't print


Open the printer and make sure the cartridges or printer head does not have any packing tape or anything like that covering the ink jets. If that is not it, try reinstalling the printer drivers and printing a test page.
