It probably need to be cleaned. Take it to be repaired. If not you can buy a brand new deskjet 4 iin 1 for about 40 bucks. I did this with HP and its fast and quiet. It was a model 4435

Fan making high pitch sound, like it is rubbing on something...Fujitsu split unit ast30pba

If you are confirmed with the noise coming out of the fan unit, then please do not waste much time but open the front panel and look into the air flow slot if there is any foreign particles struck inside.You will need to get access if the sound is coming from the rotary fan as sometimes some objecct would have got struck into the vanes of the fan. Once it is confirmed as when you switch off the sound reduces and on switch on the sound increases, then it is confirmed and removing the front panel unit becomes important. Be careful with the connecting lines so as not to break the cooling pipes if you are able to do without removing .
Hope you start with the first part and dislodge any particles by an extended probe. Hope I could help. Good day

Paper is struck in the printer and I can see it but can not get i

First, open the main cover and see if you can tug the paper out. If this does not work, look at the back of the printer. You should see a door with two latches on the side. Squeeze the latches to open (like you would open an old-fashioned window screen), and you should be able to tug the paper out from here.
