Question about Xerox WorkCentre XE88 Laser Printer

Loud clattering noise

On startup, during the short warmup cycle, while printing, and while occasionally cycling hen left on but not being used, the machine makes a really loud clattering noise -- sounds like the rat-a-tat-tat of a toy machine gun, only louder. Nothing is visibly rattling inside, and nothing can be heard rattling around when the machine is lifted. Printing performance is not affected at all -- it's fine. Toner is new (noise started before toner cartridge was replaced). Bottom metal plate of machine does not seem to be user-removable to check further. Any ideas?

    Printer wont print and has started displaying "Printing PC" on screen following a visit from a service tech who installed new toner cartidges. He couldn't fix so just left. Any help would be appreciated.

-Open the Front Cover. -Remove the Toner Cartridge -Remove the Drum Cartridge -Next locate the black gear attached to the end of the Drum and turn it with your fingers. -Check to see if the gear is locked, or difficult to turn. The gear will only turn in one direction. -If the gear won't turn at all, or if it catches while you are turning it, or if you hear the same noise when you turn the gear that you heard when the machine was on, the Drum Cartridge is the cause and will need to be replaced.

Brother MFC-9440CN Laser Printer knocking noise on startup and printing

Throw that piece of garbage out and get an HP or Samsung. One of these has plagued my office for years and I've spent countless hours plotting its demise. Worse than useless: unreliable.

On startup printer growls

Hi Charlie, These machines have a history of growling, however usually they growl before changing the fuser. The fuser is most likely the problem maybe you got a bad one. If you still have the old one and it was quiet you could pop it back in to confirm. Ther is also a gear kit available to replace the fuser drive gears but usually the noise is in the fuser.
Another growling noise can come from optional tray3 if installed. Easy to diagnose just lift machine off the assm. and print.

Hope this helps
