Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Printer

1 Answer

Screeching sound My printer got moved around a little yesterday, and I put it back in its place. Now when I try to print, I get a loud screeching noise. NYYYUUOOOOO WOOO, NYYYUUOOOOO WOOO ... I would upload a .wav but that might be overkill ;) Then I get a Paper Out error message on the display: "Paper out -> Load paper into the sheet feeder, then press the Color button." There's paper sitting in the feeder. Do you think it's just a particularly nasty paper jam? I don't see anything.

If you haven't already done so, look into the printer roller areas, and look for a piece of paper stuck somewhere, or maybe a paperclip or other foreign object which has found it's way into the mechanicals. Also, check the printhead assembly for free movement.

Bravos mct Dryer Loud Screeching sound upon startup ModelMEDB850WQ0

A loud screeching sound from your dryer could be caused by a few different issues. Here are a few things you can check:
  1. Belt: A worn or broken belt can cause a loud screeching sound. To check this, unplug the dryer and remove the front panel. Look for any signs of wear or damage to the belt. If it looks worn or broken, you'll need to replace it.
  2. Drum Rollers: Dryer drum rollers can also cause a loud screeching noise. You can check this by turning the drum by hand. If it feels rough or wobbles, the rollers may be worn and need to be replaced.
  3. Idler Pulley: A faulty idler pulley can cause a screeching noise. You can check this by removing the belt and spinning the pulley by hand. If it feels rough or wobbles, it may need to be replaced.
  4. Motor: A motor that is failing can also cause a loud screeching noise. You can check this by turning the drum by hand and listening for any unusual sounds coming from the motor.
If you're not comfortable checking these components yourself, it's best to call a professional to diagnose and repair the issue.

I have a Samsung Tab A6 that keeps making a loud screeching noise And boots itself it was freezing the screen but when I factory reset it that seem to stop now it's just making the loud screeching noise...

Where did you get the phone from.?
I suggest you take it back to them & get your money back as a screeching sound is usually a network-lockout noise from a stolen phone.?
Best of luck.

Big Thunk when Frigidarie Front Loading washing machine started the final spin cycle, then at the end of the cycle soft screeching sound when drum is moving back and forth, any thoughts? amshap50@gmai

does not sound good. if you can remove a cover on front bottom or on the back you may find a broken shock, or counter weight, either would need replacing before running again

Fridge making loud screeching sounds

Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Canon IR1600 Loud Screeching Noise During Copying

There are some little metal earth strips that meet the paper exit shaft at the fromt of the machine. I've had a couple of these digging intot he metal exit roller shaft, they just needed bending away from the shaft anbit and oiling. It also helps if you move the exit roller shaft from front to back a bit.

Printer says it has a paper jam even after it has been cleared

The screeching sound is caused when the print head reaches the end of its travel and hits the paper jam which you cannot see using the suggested jam-clearing steps. So

1. unplug the printer
2. lift the cover so the blue support on the left holds the cover up
3. plug in the printer, watch the printer head move
4. after it stops, gently move the printer head toward the middle and look at the far ends of travel. you should find the cause(s) of the jam up against the sides of the printer. remove with needle-nose pliers.
5. replace cover, plug in the machine. it will go through a cleaning or 2, but it should be ready to go after that

Screeching noise from the carriage return after printing

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.
