Brother 9700 "buzzing" sound

I have had my brother for about 3 years now, but about a year ago it started making this loud buzz/whirring noise. The noise starts before the printer actually starts feeding the paper to print, and lasts until the page is completely printed. Any idea what is causing this noise??

SOURCE: Paper not feeding

Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.

I had the same problem when I used a refurb toner cartridge, had to replace cartridge with oem for it to print. After a while started making same noise, had to take it in to have parts replaced. Now I don't take any chances on non-oem parts, it's not worth it.

Make sure the end tab in the paper tray is not too tight. The tab where you set the paper length. The paper should have about 1/16 inch space and not hold the paper too tight.

SOURCE: Paper doesn't feed correctly. Brother 2040

There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
also if rollers are seen to be very clean and proper as new.then it can be paper pulling gears at the side of the rollers.if the gears are worn out from 1 side it will pull the paper but not in a proper way.in this case also rollers needs to be replaced,becasuse roller are not available in spare they come attached to the rollers.but a local printer repair shop can provide the only spare rollers as thay have it from old junk printers.
thanks.

SOURCE: paper feed only works manual

I think you have a paper jam or some other tiny objects like a paper clip or the like blocking the ADF(Automatic Document Feeder) roller. You should open your ADF and check for anything obstructing the roller. If you see something just pull it off close the ADF and turn on the printer.

Good luck,
Sai.

When I am printing, there is a loud noise. Like something is not rotating correctly. Everything prints good, but that noise is really loud. It seems to happen when it feeds paper.


Hello there,

If there is a loud and buzzing noise inside it, the encoder strip, or the one that guides teh cartridge must be dirty. this causes buzzing sounds and mis alignment.

another is the rollers having too much paper residue in it.

i would recommend for you to clean the rollers with a lint free cloth and some water (just to dampen it)

Please feel free to leave a testimonial if this works and please do not forget to click 4 thumbs.

Cheers!

VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN PRINTING WITH MY SAMSUNG CLP-300


You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.

Printer makes extremely loud clicking noise


http://printer.konicaminolta.com/support/current_printers/mc2430dl_sup.htm#Printer_Specific_Documentation The user guide should be helpful to you to pinpoint what is causing the noise. Sounds like the belt drive or gears may be having a problem. Let me know what happens. Tim
