Question about HP PSC 2175 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Constant whirring noise and won't print

When I turn on the printer it starts making a loud whirring sound that comes from the right back corner. It sounds like something is spinning and hitting up against an object multiple times (roughly 3 times in quick succession). When I open it I can't see anything to account for the noise. There are no error messages. It sounds like it is trying to print.

I do have the same problem with my psc-2175. I opened it and recognized that the problem is with the scanner unit. There is a sonsor in this unit which locates the scanner lamp at the beginning point when you turn it on. When this sensor fail to function, the electric motor, which moves the scanner lamp will not recognize where to stop and it works without any stop. So it pulls lamp unit into its borders and make the noise you hear.
I wanted to let it repaired, but I found out that it will be very expensive and it is better to buy a new set. I have bought it in Iran 1600000Rls (170$), and the repair cost is almost 750000Rls (78$).
If you find another solution please let me know, my email is: decoder84@yahoo.com and my name is Soroush Asarzadeh.

There may be nothing you can do about it. A lot of the HP printers make a lot of noise as they start up or prepare to print. Has your printer always made this noise or did it just start?

Our laserjet 4250n printer is making a awful noise when we try to print. Can you please help?


This series of printer has an inherent fault with what they call the Fuser Swing Plate. It's a small metal plate that contains a couple of cogs, one of which drives the fuser assembly. HP found that the fuser drive cog on his plate encountered excessive wear and would then cause a sometimes, quite loud whirring noise from the back of the printer.The only way to get around this is to have another, new, updated Fuser Swing Plate fitted to the printer.

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.

Color Laserjet 2550 Loud Noise when starting up and printing


Remove toner cartirdge and check gears on cart as well as all of the gears you can see inside the unit for any signs of wear. You may also need to remove the fuser assembly and perform the same task with the gears back there. MAKE SURE THE POWER HAS BEEN TURNED OFF AND THE PRINTER UNPLUGGED FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO TOUCH THE FUSER. IT WILL BE HOT!!! Most frequently these kinds of noises from the printer are due to gears slipping. Sometimes simply reseating the fuser assembly or toner cartridge will fix it. If there appears to be excessive wear on any of the gears, you will need to replace them.

Printer is not working.


There are several things in the front that could be making that noise.The transfer roller,paper guide/top ublique roller and front obligue roller which is on the left side front. It is hard to say. I guess the printer is printing OK. If not what is the printer doing? Do you get any paper jams? Printing light? Can you rub the print off the paper? Any labels stuck? Please answer questions so I can help you. My guess is a roller problem. Which one is hard to say since I can't hear the printer myself.

Prints continuously


sounds like when it wasn't printing properly, you tried to print several times, not realising that prints which were not printed at the time were being stored to print when the printer was available.

 

you need to check the print queue, by clicking on the printer icon in the bottom right hand corner of the screen(by the clock)

 

you should be presented with a list of pending documents, which you can delete or suspend as required.

 

if the printer icon cannot be found next to the clock you can find it under START>settings>Printers
