HP 2100 makes squealing noises

DO you guys know what could be causing our hp 2100tn to make squealing noises? It prints fine, it's just really noisy and annoying. I'm getting different answers from different places about what I need to do to fix it. Any ideas?

    I too have an HP 2100 that squeals and squeaks as it puts out paper. The print is fine. I tried replacing the toner cartridge - didn't make any difference. Tried printing from other paper tray - still sqeaks. Tried printing with straight paper path - still squeals.

    It sounds like it wants WD40 - but I don't know where!

It could be a roller, a drum, sometimes the auger in the cartridge can do it.

Should have a technician look at it to find specifically where it is comming from.

I have HP laserjet 1018 printer and it makes noisy sound when it prints. But it prints fine though. What causes making this noise?


The noise is probably due to the print heads aligning and clicking. To try to make this noise a little quieter, clean and align the print heads.
Good luck!

Downloaded driver from HP. connected printer via


HP Support says “If the Ready light is blinking, and the Go light is on, it indicates Data in the printer memory is waiting to be printed. Pressing the GO button prints from Tray 1 or from another tray if Tray 1 is empty and the paper size is supported in the other Tray. Pressing the JOB CANCEL button cancels the current job and the printer returns to ready.
Make sure the paper size is correctly defined.

I would first suggest making sure you have the latest drivers for your laser. Even if you do confirm this I would then reinstall them. If that is no help, it may be a connection issue (bad cable or port causing noise when you print).

Is your transfer roller clean?
How does the drum look on the toner cart?
Is the fuser getting bad?

Would you consider this an old image that is ghosting?
