Does it only whine when it paper is passing through it? Does it whine before the paper is fed in and after it's ejected?
If so, could possible be the fuser unit.
If it only whines when paper is passing through, it may be the paper passing between a worn-out feed roller and separator pad, which are high-mortality items on this model.

How old is the printer? Printer will ware out after a few years, I had an InkJet, and it sounds like yours is doinf the same thing mine did before I had to replace the unit. My printing unit made a single move then ... nothing after that.
Have you tried to re-install the software for the printer? How was it working prior to this?
Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer......Now try to Print it should work........
Well your leader (lead head) could be jammed or off of its track. The leader should sit on a steel/aluminum rod and it should run under the front of the cartridge. If its gearings are out of sink you can get the cracking sounds you're describing and the whining probably the motor that powers the leader having no resistance and going way too fast for what it is supposed to do. I'd look for a broken sprocket or gear.
The high pitched whine and the paper stopping just before the fuser (the hot) unit is a known issue on the C3000 and C4100. If you are still searching for the solution to this issue, let me know, as I now have a working fix for the problem.
