Squeaking My copier squeaks when it is running. It only squeaks when actually copying and not just when it is out of sleep mode. Is there something I should be lubricating?

The squeak is coming from the drum unit. If you take out the drum and rotate it by hand it will most likely give you the same noise. you may be able to stop it by pouring some toner on it, but in reality it is more annoying than a problem.
there is a blade that scrapes off excess toner from the drum, it is slightly dry and causes the squeaking, technicians usually use a special powder that looks like baby powder to "lubricate" the blade, and stop the noise.

SQUEAKING PRINTER


If it is squeaking when it is trying to pick up the paper then check the Paper Feed system.
If it is squeeking as it tries to print. Then it will be either the Cartridge or the Drum unit.
If it is squeaking from the back of the machine as the page is fed through the fuser then check the fuser is free moving.

Replacing the faulty unit will fix the squeaking. Be that the Paper Feed System/Drum/Toner/Fuser.

My HP Officejet 6500 wireless E709N makes a loud squeaking noise every time something is printed and is printing additional lines on the sheets of paper being printed?? Help!


Horizontal streaks across the page usually mean your cartridge is about to run out, or is at least dirty. Try cleaning the nozzles, though avoid doing this manually -- your printer should have a cleaning cycle.
The squeaking noise could be dust in your rollers. That can't really be fixed without major intervention that could throw something out of balance and result in many a paper jam. You can use a lint-free, static-free cloth to gently clean inside an unplugged printer, but it's generally not a great idea to mess around in there too much.

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.

Squeaky printer/copier


Probably paper dust stuck in the gears, you can try to blow it out with some compressed air, it could be due to differing humidity levels now that it is getting colder - I wouldn't worry too much over it, some noise is normal. Clicking, grinding, popping, however - that could mean something is about to go. But slight squeaking shouldn't be too much cause for worry, there's alot of moving parts in there to keep well lubed up... ;)
