Loud Jamming noise

I just recently can not use my printer. It will scan or attempt to start to print, then suddenly make this loud jamming sound- almost grinding. then it stops completely and it tells me to contact support???  When I looked inside I noticed a lot of excess ink on the right/ left sides that seemed to be dried up and just gobbed up. I cleaned some of it up with no change.  Any ideas??? I am about to throw it out the window! Thanks jamiejantz@wowway.com

Clean up the Linear Scale - that's the thin strip behind the ink carrier, above the gold toothed belt.
I used Vodka as I had no access to industrial alcohol (I guess gin would work as well). This strip is very important, so be careful with it, but do persevere. My printer was condemned and is now working fine again.

My Dell 2135cn printer all the sudden started making crazy loud grinding noises. Then I got a paper jam. I fixed the paper jam and tried to print again, but got the loud grinding noises and paper jam...


Refer to the service manual in disassembling the device.. Clean it thoroughly then try it again.. If, you have no experience in doing so, hire a qualified tech to do so.

Sharp AL1642 CS Copier Grinding noise and Paper Jams


Loud clacking sound, jamming in fuser ? sounds like the gear that turns the fuser are bad and not meshing together,
accordion jam is the fingers or claws that ride on the fuser roller are probably worn out ( these can be replaced usually 3-5 ).

You can buy the parts and replace them yourself if a handy person, not that difficult.

Loud ratchet noise


Have you been using ink cartridges other than store bought? Reason I'm asking is that i used a refill kit, and tried those half price refill places, only to find ink was leaking out when not in use & clogged up the ends where the cartridge moves across. take a flashlight & look at the ends of the track that the cartridges slide across on, you may see a build up of ink, that won't allow the cartridge to travel as far as it needs to go to run properly.

Jamming, roller lines and loud fan


You'll want to purchase the service manual for this printer if you do not already have one. Obviously the fan is the most annoying problem. But the jamming, the roller marks, and other issues would indicate that the entire printer is probably needing to be cleaned out and that the rollers may even need to be reconditioned or replaced.

Dryer doesnt do anything besides a loud noise


What kind of loud noise??  A loud electrical noise??  A loud squealing noise??
It's possible that there is a foreign matter inside the filter chamber jamming up the blower fan.  Pull the filter screen out and look down the filter chamber area and see if there is a sock jamming the fan from turning.  If you can pull it out, that should resolve your problem.  If not, you may need to call a qualified LG technician to resolve this issue.

Loud grinding noice before starting to print


Mine makes a grinding noise when scanning or making copies. As long as everything is working, I just tolerate the noise in which the rest of the staff find amusing at first and then ignore it as I do.
