Remove the black cover over the shuttle and look for a phase number hand written in blue marker on the right side of shuttle. Press the up and down arrows at the same time to unlock the control panel. Press left arrow to go to diagnostics. Down arrow and right arrow until phasing. Set phasing number same as what was written on shuttle assy.If it is making noise then the shuttle is bad.

Printronix p4280 making noise

Depending on the specific circumstances, of course, the most likely culprit is the shuttle assembly. It could either be the motor in the assembly or the bearings in the shuttle assembly.
Put in hold mode. (Press Enable/Hold button)
Remove the shuttle cover assembly. (leave the screws in the cover itself when you remove it). On the middle-right side you will see a cover sensor -- you will need to fool this with a magnet.
Run a test print (Print Test button). (With the hood up/) Listen for the source of the noise. Is it the motor or the shuttle assembly bearings. (If the noise stops when you turn off test print and the motor is winding down then it is the shuttle assembly bearings.) Or is the noise elsewhere?
If elsewhere move around side to side to differentiate and locate the sound.
Here is a link to the part of the manual that describes replacing the shuttle assembly.
Please note that the motor itself is not really considered a separate field replaceable unit -- it is considered a part of the shuttle assembly. I only mentioned it separately above as part of the troubleshooting to consider the noise source.

How do i clean the print head to a good printout

This is a Thermal Printer, which means it uses tiny hot wires to create dots on special paper to form the characters. There may be little to nothing you can do to make output better. You can try unplugging the unit from the power source and using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to clean any paper fibers or residue from the face of the print head. More likely than not however is the possibility that you will have to have the print head replaced in order to restore crisp printouts. These print heads, much like the older dot-matrix print heads, have a limited lifetime because of the way they function.
