Usually the noise is coming from the Swing Plate Assembly. This is an assembly with plastic gears that the fuser rides on and if they loose a tooth, it makes noise

SOURCE: Printer paper reloading

So the feeder woek sometimes, If you have a warranty, bring it back, if not , the printer might have something stuck in his mechanism or a bit of spread ink, open it and check for any weird thing, you can do some cleaning but the mechanism need some greassy spot so do not be too clean
then try a recommanded paper for the printer like 80g for example and no more than 30 new pages to begin.
You can test the printer when open, you just need to push a few switch or button to make it run also you will be able to see where the noise come from.

SOURCE: Paper feed not working properly

1. first check to see if there is any bits and pieces of paper in any place in the paper carriage -- look very carefully in front access and rear access
2. if this is not the problem, then disconnect printer from computer -- turn off printer, unplug power cord, unplug printer cable from printer
3. gain access to paper roller assembly, usually in rear
4. using lint free cloth, dampened with distilled water clean rollers -- read manual to determine direction of rotation (usually clockwise)
5. keep rotating rollers until all is wiped clean of paper dust
6. reassumble and try a test print as your printer manual directs

SOURCE: Why doesn't paper feed after

Hello.

There are lots of reasons why this would happen:

Foreign object (could be very tiny)

Any power lights flashing ?

Paper feed rollers may need cleaning - try (from Canon Support):

1. Ensure that the printer is turned on. If any paper is loaded in the printer, remove it.

2. Select which roller to clean, the auto sheet feeder's or cassette's, by pressing the <Paper Feed> switch on the printer.

3. Hold down the <Resume/Cancel> button; when the Power lamp flashes green three times, release the button. The paper feed roller will rotate as it cleans itself.

4.. Repeat step 3 twice.


5. Load three or more of A4 or letter sized plain paper in the auto sheet feeder or cassette, as selected in step 2.


6. Repeat step 3. The paper that is loaded in the printer will be fed through the printer and ejected.


7. If printing problems persist, repeat step 6 up to three times.

Could be a hardware error and the printer would need servicing - still under warranty ?? If so, return to Canon for repair or replacement.

Hope this helps.

There is a high, loud buzzing noise when you feed more than one sheet into the shredder. The paper doesn't feed and the shredder needs to be unplugged to stop the noise. Do I need a new one?


With power removed, inspect the shredding mechanism and remove all residue. If you shredded coated paper or plastic in the past, you may have to scrape out the remains.

Wipe the paper feed rollers with a clean rag wetted with plain water. You can also replace the feed rollers, search for "paper feeding kit" for this printer. Should be $20 to $30.

This may not help everyone that I send it to, but it is worth a try.
I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press
the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer.
The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

What kind of back door do you have on your machine. Does it have a knob that you twist to get it off or does it have pieces on the left and right you have to pinch to get it off. Reason for asking....

There were two versions of this machine put out that had two different service stations and paper feed mechanisms. One version had a motor for the paper feed mechanism and a motor for the service station. The other version just had a motor for the paper feed mechanism and service station movement was tied in to this motor This was done with an altered gear mechanism in the service station. This gear mechanism was cheap and it broke easily. When it breaks you get a knocking/grinding noise and no paper feed or service station movement. It can't be fixed.

THIS PROBLEM IS IN THE MACHINES THAT HAVE THE PINCH OFF BACK DOOR!!!

Hope this helps.

Terrible grating sound when trying to print!


It could be timing issue with print head or the feed mechanism. You will have to get a service manual if you want to fix it yourself.

Paper not feeding


The Dell 3000cn & 3010CN both display this fault.

The root cause of the problem is the Rubber pads of the feed roller in the paper tray become warn and fail to grip the paper the paper feeds a few millimetres and then is let go by the worn roller, the paper path sensors pick this up and then a paper jam is notified.

The only remedy for this problem is to obtain a new feed roller for the paper tray mechanism. Unfortunately dell in the UK do not sell maintenance kits to the public, and therefor ehte only place I found them wa on Ebay in the USA.

The kit in quetsion is the vertical paper feed maintenance kit. it costs around $50 plus shipping.

The only other option is to have a Dell approved service agent replace the rollers for you.

If you hear a grinding or cruching noise when paper is fed, then one of the mini plastic guide rollers had detached itself from its position and wound up in the tape path mechanism (very expensive repair)

Tape wont register on this after we changed the tape


Make sure that it is installed properly ... going under not OVER. Does the paper feed when the paper feed key is depressed ??

1. Lift the paper holder up.
2. Fold the leading edge of the paper roll 3 to 5 cm. (Do not fold it slantwise.)
3. Insert the paper roll from the left side of the paper holder and make sure the paper
roll is set in the proper direction (with the paper feeding from the bottom).
4. Insert the leading edge of the paper into the opening directly behind the print
mechanism.
5. Press the paper feed key and feed the paper under the edge of the paper cutter.
