Question about Samsung ML 1210 Laser Printer

Very Noisy Warmup cycle with my ML1210

The printer works perfectly, except lately it has started to get noiser and noiser during the initial warmup cycle. After a full night, in early morning, when the printer is cold. The warmup cycle sounds like gears are grinding, clattering. Finally it warms up, shuts down and then prints perfectly. Could there be something loose in the gear or drive system that only is a problem during this warmup cycle? Is there some way I can adjust or tighten something to repair this? Thank you, Fred G.

    Ours does this too and now it does it when it's actually printing. I believe it has something to do with the gears that feed the paper through but we can't find anything. It's printing fine, but this printer is only 6 months old. I can't believe this is normal operating noises.

    Warmup cycles every 20 seconds (therefore not a quiet printer). Other than that it prints fine.

Put your ear closer to printer to detect source of noise, put all gears out and check each one and reassemple them, I hope you solve your prob.

Warmup never completes, no steam comes out

I think your model only has one boiler, it is possible that the thermostat for the steam could be damaged. or on the mainboard, connection that turns the steam on is damaged(I had that happen on a compact digital).

My Mtsubishi TV needs a new light engine...cost $799?

If one of your 4 fans stop working you will get a red blinking light. These do go bad after awhile. Part is under $10 at an electronics parts store if it is a fan. You have to open up the back and see if all 4 fans are working. If the light comes on after initial warmup then it is probably the main exhaust fan on the back cover of the tv. If it comes on during warmup period, then it could be your chassis fan. These are the two fans that usually will go bad.
