SQUEAKING PRINTER


If it is squeaking when it is trying to pick up the paper then check the Paper Feed system.
If it is squeeking as it tries to print. Then it will be either the Cartridge or the Drum unit.
If it is squeaking from the back of the machine as the page is fed through the fuser then check the fuser is free moving.

Replacing the faulty unit will fix the squeaking. Be that the Paper Feed System/Drum/Toner/Fuser.

Squeaky noise


You clean the printer by running cleaning pages. You can find "Cleaning Page" in your printers menus. As for the "squeaky noise", I have found it is the worst with "recycled" toner and toner kits. Finding the cause of the squeak is a very difficult thing to do. You will need to remove the front, back and sides of your printer and check all the nooks and crannies for the squeaky wheel. I have been able to remove the squeak by installing a manufacturer original toner. "Cleaning" the rollers usually has nothing to do with the squeak.

OKI C700 printer making squeaky noise when printing?could it be the cartridge- changed few hours ago?Thanks


If the squeak only developed after changing the toner cartridge then I would say yes it could very well be the cartridge. Particularly if it is a generic brand.
I have found that most squeaks in printers are caused by the toner/drum cartridge

If my printer is squeaking what could be the problem besides the toner cartridge?


Squeaking noise is usually caused by the toner cartridge, expecially after market ones. But if its not the toner, I've seen the mirror motor cause a rotation noise in the 1300/1200 series printers.

My printer squeaks/squeals when its printing. Any ideas? Thanks!


Hi,

Sometimes squeaking can be caused by the toner cartridge. Try reinstalling the cartridge or installing another. This cartridge's yield is 2500 pages. When is very used, it could make rare sounds. Always use genuine HP cartridge.

The arm of the pick-up roller is loose... is normal.

If the pick-up roller have a very smooth surface, replace it. Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Printer is squeaking when printing.


Before digging too deep, try removing the toner cartridge and powering on. The printer will make a short run cycle and you can listen for the squeak. Many times it's just the toner or drum and you don't need expensive repairs, just a cartridge.

Squeaky HP printer


Typically the squeaking comes from the toner cartridge. If you just purchased it, take it back, it's bad. If you can find an identical printer, swap cartridges and see if it makes a difference.
