Screeching noise from the carriage return after printing

To CompuG: I was wondering if you could tell me if this is something I can remedy, or will it require a professional repair? My all-in-one prints beautifully, but once it's done, it makes a loud screeching before stopping. Occasionally I get an error message to open the back and clear a jam, but there is no a jam. Hopefully this is not an expensive fix.

Thank you,
Marsha

    Yes, I still need advice. But if you can't help without charging me for it, then you really are no help. Thanks anyway.

Hi mothermoon,
This could be coming from dirty rollers. Raise the top of the unit and take some Q-tips dipped in isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and start cleaning all the rubber rollers and especially all the steel rolling pins that are in front of those rubber rollers. Spin the rollers around, by hand, to make sure you clean all around them, not just one spot. You'll be surprised how much residue you'll get off these parts. Even if this doesn't help your particular problem it should be done as standard maintenance.

Grinding or screeching? screeching is the belt. Even though you changed it something is wrong. try belt dressing. If that works and you put a new belt on, then the tensioner pulley may be bad. Not a big deal to change but it's function is to keep the belt tight so it doesn't squeal.

Carriage jam error


A paper jam

If you've had a paper jam, normally after you clear it, a small amount of paper sometimes gets left behind and gets shunted onto the sidewall of the printer by the carriage, which stops the carriage reaching its full travel and throwing up an error, rendering the printer unable to print or carry out any other function. Simply remove the paper and switch printer off and on and it will reset.
If you have an error of any other kind, many remedies and fixes for these can be found on my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk/frame/pages/epson.htm

When turn on typewriter there is an continuous beeping/screeching noise and will not operate.


Remove print wheel to ensure its not jamming, switch machine back on and see if carriage returns to the LHS home position. If it does not and the carriage is just shaking and the noise is still there, you may have a defective carriage motor or defective power supply.

Printer made machine gun noise. will not print.


The print head is stuck - something has jammed it and the noise you are hearing is the carriage for the print head. Open the top and try moving the head by head sideways to see what has jammed it.

HP 7410 Poor printing, carriage jam message(fake), loud noise


Check the plastic strip that you'll see along the carriage track. Make sure it's clean. Take a soft cloth and dampen it. Run it up and down the strip and make sure it's clean. If there's any ink on it, it could cause carriage jams. The strip has tiny lines on it which tell the electronics where the carriage is. If the strip is dirty, you'll get jam messages and sometimes the carriage will slam against one end or the other.

Printer-squeel


The squeeling I think has to do with a small build up of ink on the carriage.

What I do is I open up the printer top so you can see the carriage as if you were putting in a printhead and then you unplug the power to the printer when teh carriage is in the unlocked position. Now you can freely move the carriage back and forth. If you notice there is a clearish long strip going from one side of the printer to the other that is placed flat ontop of the entire metal inside casing of the printer. Clean that entire strip with a cloth or something. Now take a piece of paper and fold it a few times so that it ends up looking like a ruler you can say. Put the paper flat on that clear strip and then take the carriage and move it over the paper. Basically your cleaning the underpart of the carriage that touches that clear strip that is attached to the metal body of the printer. Move it back and forth and you will see ink being put onto the paper thus cleaning it.

Just close the case up, plug in your printer and the squeaking should be solved till next time. As for that light problem, don't know what those lights mean. If there is a problem with teh printhead or ink though it will always tell you on the digital read out, or at least should.
