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.

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.

Wine Enthusiast Silent Wine Refrigerator is making a loud buzzing/whirring noise.


Since this unit doesn't use a compressor, the only moving parts are the whisper fans inside of it that circulate the air. One of those fans may be going bad. If you are handy you can remove the back to see if all the fans are working but your best bet is to use the one year warranty and have a qualified techncian figure it out.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise


First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Mwave made loud buzzing noise then didn't heat up anymore


When there's a loud buzz like that, it does not heat, and does not blow the fuse, it is usually a defective magnetron. Did it sound something like someone making a "gurgling" sound into a coffee cup? I think this has a a one-year warranty, with n five-year warranty covering the magnetron. You can find a local Amana-authorized servicer here: http://amana.com/amana/jsp/portalhttp.do?cs=0&BV_UseBVCookie=Yes&NextPage=7
