I would oil it. Printers need lube too. I would use graphite lube because it is thick and wont spread except from where you put it.

Good luck!

4mv won't pick up paper


The feed rollers need to be replaced. The squeak is the worn rollers sliding over the edge of the paper.

I AM USING A BROTHER MFC 7340 SINCE 1 YEAR: NO PROBLEM EXCEPT WHEN PRINTING FROM PAPER TRAY, THE PRINTER SQUEAKS AND MAKES NOISE THAT IF ANYTHING ELSE WAS DOING THE SAME NOISE YOU WOULD THINK IT NEEDED...


The problem actually is probably due to needing lucubration. I would apply graphite lube to any rollers or gears in the user serviceable area. print 100 blank pages to make sure that the lube is spread thoroughly through the printer.

Good Luck!

Error 241.1 Paper Jam. I have reseated the tray


Brand New T652n lexmark printer get a paper jam every time! just opened and haven't been able to print one paper. Doesn't matter if you print from tray one or tray two. It gets stuck right after the rollers pick it up and try to send it to the toner. Any suggestions? I've tried to reseat the toner, plain paper, sized the paper correctly, I've tried just about everything I can think of! I can feed paper manually through the top tray, and it will print. But, just using the manual tray defeats the purpose of the other two trays. Anyone else having this issue?

Xerox Phaser 4510 - While printing it makes a squeaking noise


One of two things. The fuser bearings get noisy in those.
Or there are several small hard plastic rollers on steel shafts or even mounted on springs they they can get very noisy.

Hl-2140 noises


For a possible fix to the Brother HL-2140 squeal/squeak/noise problem open the printer at the other side from the paper tray and toner cartridge door. You should see a little black roller rod along with some white wheels.

The noise may be coming from the contact between the wheels/rollers which pull paper toward the output tray on top after it has been printed.

Check and clean/wipe the wheels and black rod, especially in the center area. Hopefully the noise will now be reduced/eliminated.

Cheers, Stephen

Rollers squeak.


This probably means the rollers are getting slick and a little glazed. Dell printers seem prone to this. It's harmless unless it is the primary (big) rollers that push the paper up into the toner drum. See my advice to the paper jam question for fixing that.

HP 1720 I making a noise when printing.


Troubleshootinggtabtop.gif
    NOTE: Refer to the Testing section in this document for instructions on performing the tests.
  1. Turn the printer off, and then turn the printer on. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur while the printer is initializing.
  2. Perform a paper path test. The grinding or squeaking noise should not occur because the carriage should not be moving.
  3. Perform a self-test to localize the noise.
  4. Check the printer for obstructions by lifting the top cover and making sure nothing is blocking the carriage movement.
  5. Check the paper path by following the instructions below:
    1. Remove all media from Trays 1, 2, and 3.
    2. Pull out any visible stuck paper.
    3. Lift the top cover, and pull out any jammed paper.
    4. If you are unable to free the jammed paper, pull out the handle of the paper knob, pull the knob away from the printer, and rotate it to remove the paper.
    5. Lower the rear access door by lifting up on the two rear door latches.
    6. Remove the back panel by pushing the two catches inward.
    7. Pull out any paper that may be stuck inside.
  6. Wipe down the milky white strip (see Figure 1) that the front of the carriage glides on with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth.
Figure 1: Location of the white strip
bpp90119-1.gif Replace the whole unitgtabtop.gifIf the printer is still making a grinding or squeaking noise after following the steps above, replace the whole unit. See Whole Unit Replacement instructions, which are included with the whole unit replacement.
Testinggtabtop.gifUpon replacement of the whole unit, perform a Paper Path test and a self-test as described below to verify that the new unit is functional.
    Performing a paper path test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Diagnostics Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Perform Tray x Paper Path Test is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the test.
    NOTE: The paper path test will terminate only when the paper in the tray being tested runs out or the printer is turned off.
    Performing the stand-alone self-test
    1. Press the MENU button on the printer control panel until Self Test Menu is selected.
    2. Press ITEM until Print Menu Map is selected.
    3. Press SELECT to perform the stand-alone self-test.

Loud noise/paper tray not working


What error? Does it say paper jam and a number? Have you tried cleaning the rollers that pick up the paper? Use a cotton cloth with a little bit of WD40. Then a dry cloth to remove residue oil. Do not use alcohol. It will dry out the roller and make it slick.
