Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

1 Answer

My HP LJ 1020 is making a loud grinding noise when pulling through paper. Print quality is fine, but the tone is leaking inside the printer. I tried blowing out the toner dust and lubricating the rollers, but the sound persists. Is this because my toner is refurbished?

Why is my printer making really loud grinding noise and will not feed paper or print


It sounds like a bit of paper is stuck somewhere in the paper feed route. Remove the toner cartridge and any other bits that pull out. Removable bits often have a green tag or finger grips moulded in to them. Do a careful check in the printer for any bits of paper or even a full sheet stuck somewhere. Carefully remove all rubbish and reassemble.

Is this thing shot for good?


Did you remove the new cartridge to make sure it isn't a paper jam and also to get a better look at the interior?

Copies are coming out with a dark horizontal lines and printer is making a rather loud sound when paper is in printing process.


Two things that can cause print quality issues and noise.
1. The toner cartridge can cause lines and sometimes can make a squeaking noise.
2. The fuser can cause streaking and smudges on the prints and can cause a grinding noise if the drive gear is worn or the bushings are worn.

Brother MFC-9420CN Paper Jam Error message w/ loud grinding noiz


please try this

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Noise from HP LJ 1020


Change the gears , coz when the machine load or when you are printing the roller turn, and those roller has gears at the ends so when they are died they give those sounds, open the cover and try to detect which gear make this noise and change it.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking


Hi,
As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards

Poor Print Quality


I would start by changing the paper or even leave the paper in the son for a while. Paper usually gets damp, espesially durint the evening and then using it early in the moring. If this do not work you will have to change the cartridge.
