Have you narrowed down the exact area where this noise is coming from. It is most likely from a gear or roller. Try opening and possibly removing the outer panels and find the exact location of this noise. Tell me what is causing the noise and I can let you know what to exactly do to fix this. No amount of reseting will fix this. good luck and please let me know if you have any further questions

    there are more than one rollers in the machine but usually they have roller in the name. Have you removed some outer panels to get to the sound

    well, start removing rollers one at a time until you find the one that makes the grinding noise, also look for loose objects or missing gear teeth

The bearing on the motor or the rotating path must have damaged..

replace them

    first the faulty section need to be found...

    for that the printer should be dismantled first

    as i said the motor has bearings and the roller has teeth like structures which could be broken..

    the grinding noise could be either from the motor or the roller

It can only be caused by a faulty or failing part inside the printer.

What is the cause and solution of a loud grinding noise coming from a xerox workcentre 6605 when printing


Sometimes when the toners get low on toner you will hear the gears grinding, or if there is an obstruction in the waste toner auger. Also check the drum units to make sure they are turning freely.

could be a few things... take out the drum and make sure the toner is put back in. then keep the right side door open and push the silver metal flap down near the back of the door opening (its the interlock that tells the machine the right side door is closed) and see if the noise occurs. if it does then you no its not the drum. so u can reinstall it. try to pin point the source of the sound with the right side door open. could be one of the many gears in back or the fuser (which is above the green colored drum) 4 screws and one wire harness takes off the fuser and u can physically inspect to see if the gears are missing any teeth or the bushings are broken. if all looks well then reinstall turn machine around and take off the back cover (6 screws) wiggle it off and turn the machine on and look closely at all the gears on the left(looking at the back) top side. when it starts it warm up process check to see if any gears are making the sound or cracked. if those gears are shot u mught need a new main drive assembly which is really difficult and time consuming to repair.

Xerox 6360dn, Tray 2 makes loud grinding noise when printing. Tray 1 is as quiet as a mouse. Replaced tray 2 with a known good tray and it still makes grinding noise.


In my experience, it was the registration roller causing the grinding noise. See http://my.brainshark.com/Phaser-6300-6350-6360-Grinding-Noise-795590408 for troubleshooting video.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.

Loud grinding noise Toshiba 1550


It is one of three problems,
1- the developper is starting to go bad, unfortunately with toshiba it is a common problem the seals go bad in the unit the gears are very hard to turn giving a loud grinding noise, although you can rebuild the unit by changing the seals, it's VERY messy and they don't always work ( after spending all that time cleaning and changing the seals and gears and it didn't work, I just started to change the DV unit.) Test by taking out and turning the gear by hand, if you need a plier to turn it, it's bad.
2-the toner itself is a problem, take out the toner and look at wherre it sits there is a gear that turns the toner to feed it in the machine, if it's dirty and has toner it will make noise, test by taking out toner and close machine, does it make the noise without it?
3- cleaning section where the drum is, this is what turns to feed excess toner into the small pastic container, aggravating but not a mechanical problem. And also check the fuser ( where it gets hot)

I think I've covered everything for that machine.

Good luck

Not printing from tray 2.


Check that the paper pickup rollers forthat tray are not melted from excessive heat. Take out the paper tray and try to manually move the gears.
