    Out of nothing my hp 1200 printer started making an awful sound like something was jammed. From than every time i switch on the printer i can't print just listening the sound. I have looked for a paper jam there isn't any.

Might be that the toner cartridge is not inserted properly. It may also be a broken fuser gear.

Operation stop after one use. All you heard is a continuous shutter sounds found on the scanner or photostat copy section. How can isolate this kind of trouble?


This is already a possible hardware issue.

If its making unexpected or noisy sounds while operating gears inside of it is causing the issue.You cannot fix it unless you change gears inside of it which is very mechanical and only the manufacturer can do.

Try calling Hp support 18004746836 because for this type of issues they can enroll you to their loyalty program where you can upgrade your printer to newer version.Take advantage of it!

Hope I help you a bit

Thanks

Grinding noise in cartridge for hp laserjet 1200 series printer. I replced cartridge and still hear noise sometime worse and then not so loud.


I have the same problem and I know what is causing my problem. It's not in the cartridge. You're laser scanner is going to go bad. I had the problem 3 months ago. I would only make the grinding noise when it powered up. Printing was okay. I don't use the printer that much. Then about a week ago I notice only the bottom diagnostic light was on. I unplug the power and powered it back up. The grinding noise got louder and wouldn't stop. I unplugged the printer an replugged. Same thing.

I was bored (christmas day) and decided to open my printer to see what the root cause problem was. I removed several screws and once I got all the printer naked (removed all the plastic outside). I plugged it in an tried to listen where the problem was. I notice a vibration at the laser scanner (top black piece). I unplugged the printer. I unplugged the power source to the laser scanner. Replugged the power and saw all the gears move with no noise. Powered off. Replugged laser scanner. Powered on. Noise back. Defective laser scanner. The laser scanner has a ribbon cable, and four purple wires going to it, oh yeah there is a big yellow warning label, so you can't miss it. I hope this helps.
