The proper thing to do here is replace the swing plate assembly rm1-0043 with the OEM part. Otherwise, you'll end up in the same situation in half the time. Only a seasoned technician can perform this task as the printer needs to be completely dismantled. 30 minute job if you've done this 20 times before. 2 hour job if you've never done it before.

This is a very common problem for this model ... the swing plate assembly has a black gear which in particular is prone to wearing out ... originally the design was a plastic gear, PrinterTechs has a metal gear replacement which is sturdier ...

Actually, TSAworld offers a simple solution to this very common problem with HP LaserJet 4200, 4250, 4345 and 4350 models; "gear chatter" or grinding noises. The problem is caused by the fuser drive gear mechanism, commonly called the "swing plate assembly". We sell a kit which contains aftermarket components to rebuild the existing swing plate assembly and the fuser gear. As long as the actual swing plate assembly is not bent or the spring is not missing for damaged, then fixing this problem literally takes about 15-20 minutes by following our detailed instructions included with each kit. Arm yourself with a simple, quick, and cost-effective solution. Plus we sell lots of other kits for taking care of many other common issues with printers and copiers.

Remove the fuser from the rear of the printer and look on the left side from the rear. Most comon problem is that the swingplate gear wears down so much that the gears slip and grind. If you see a pile of black powder under this gear plate this is for sure the problem. Complex repair job. Lots of dis-assembly is required.

It needs to be looked at by a technician to see it there are any broken gears in it.

When i print, the printer makes a grinding noise the paper gets jamed also.


Remove the fuser unit and check if there is a residue on the side of the gears. If so, you 'll have to replace the swing gear assy. Partnumber 5851-2766. It is not an easy job!!!

Lexmark C510 is making grinding noises while printing large jobs


I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Grinding noise only when printing a large print job


It is passable the grinding noise is coming from one of the toner cartridges in the printer.

Check for any toner cartridges which are stiff or difficult to turn by hand
Replace and refilled toners or compatible toners with original manufactures toners.
If you have alternative toners available replace each toner in turn to see if the cause can be identified to a particular toner.

Need to clear all printing jobs from the printer 4250 HP


It's probably queued up on the computer you're using. If this is Windows or Mac, look for a printer icon toward the bottom-right corner of your screen.

If you don't have it and you're on Windows, click Start: Control Panels: Printers. Find your printer.

Inside the new screen, you should be able to first pause the printer, then cancel all the jobs. You may have to highlight all of them, then right-click to get cancel.

When they're all cleared out, go back to where you paused the printer, then hit Resume printing.
