Question about Canon PIXMA MP780 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer dead Hi, Periodically, my printer would make a loud noise when it's turned on, and it would not work. But, this time when we turned it on, it just simply dead except there's a black line appeared on the LCD. We unplugged and plugged it again at different places, yet, it appeared the same. We've used this printer a little less than 3 years. Could you please tell me what to do? Thank you Li Chen

Remove the cartridges and then pull out the print head. Look on the bottom for burned out circuit traces. Canon & HP printers (and some others) are designed to "zap" the printheads with a high current pulse that gradually destroys the printhead circuitry. This is to keep you coming back for more. These guys are greedy beyond belief! If your Canon worked for 3 years consider yourself lucky. This is not the only solution but it is definitely one which applies to this issue. The loud noise is not necessarily related to the black line/bad printhead problem.

Loud clicking noise when turn on printer


I would check wherever possible for foreign objects in the printer. Failing that, a partial reset is available for your PSC 2410:

A partial reset can be done by:

1) Unplugging the power cord (you are already there!)
2) Press and hold the (#) key and (3) key while plugging the unit back in

Why Samsung CLP-300 Printer making annoying/loud clicking noises?


So try to get the black toner cartridge out of the Machine. On zhe backside of the Cardridge is a gear. Try to turn the gear, maybe the Toner inside is clump together. When you can turn it very easy in both directions it's fine.

Loud grinding noise. Paper only coming half way out then getting Jam notice. Loud grinding is very loud.


Hi

Grinding noises indicate either gears that are self destructing or something is stuck inside. Take out the cartridge(s), remove the paper and all the plastic that comes off. Unplug the cables. Now lift the printer, turn upside down and shake. If there are broken gears a local repair shop might try to fix it but most stores refrain from this.

I have a Dell A920 printer. Carriage stall error


Try this trick. Turn off the printer, reach in and manually move the carriage to the other side of the printer. Then, unplug it, plug er in and try again. If that doesn't work then it's most likely a dead unit.

LOUD NOISE


Hard to tell without hearing it. But, if it is doing it all the time it is turned on but not in use most of the time that would be a fan making the noise. The other suspect would be a fault toner cartridge or the fuser. you may need to have a tech look at this.
Hope that helps...

I would be willing to be it's one of two things.

Most common is a jammed gear on the imaging units. Remove all imaging units CMKY. The turn on machine. If the noise is gone, start replacing imaging unit one at a time tile noise reappears. Replace defective imaging unit.

If that doesn't work remove the accumulator belt from the right side of the machine and then turn machine on, see if noise is gone. If so replace accumulator belt.

Loud grinding noise Toshiba 1550


It is one of three problems,
1- the developper is starting to go bad, unfortunately with toshiba it is a common problem the seals go bad in the unit the gears are very hard to turn giving a loud grinding noise, although you can rebuild the unit by changing the seals, it's VERY messy and they don't always work ( after spending all that time cleaning and changing the seals and gears and it didn't work, I just started to change the DV unit.) Test by taking out and turning the gear by hand, if you need a plier to turn it, it's bad.
2-the toner itself is a problem, take out the toner and look at wherre it sits there is a gear that turns the toner to feed it in the machine, if it's dirty and has toner it will make noise, test by taking out toner and close machine, does it make the noise without it?
3- cleaning section where the drum is, this is what turns to feed excess toner into the small pastic container, aggravating but not a mechanical problem. And also check the fuser ( where it gets hot)

I think I've covered everything for that machine.

Good luck
