Oki C9500 makes VERY LOUD clunking noises but prints fine...
My oki c9500 printer makes some very loud disturbing noises when printing. The prints are fine, but it is too loud to use and I fear damaging the printer by continuing to use it when it is making this noise.
I have searched online for info to see if anyone else has had a similar problem, but nothing.
I think it is the transfer belt, but I can't be sure.
Can you help?

The sound is most probably from one (or more) of the drum units. You can check by taking them out and trying to run the visible gears by hand. If you have spare drums, change them one at a time until you find the defective one.

You will find the waste toner auger (Coiled wire in the plastic tube) is either snapped or blocked with hard toner. Its simple to remove as it just unscrews. If I remember correctly it sits under the transfer belt and runs down the back and right side of the base. Anyway clean and inspect it as that is what removes the waste toner.
Where the paper exits the printer you will see 3 black sensor arms hanging down. 1 is the exit sensor and the other 2 are job offset sensors. On of those 2 will be stuck. Just gently free it and all should be well.
Brain-storm .... simple solution .... REPLACED Magenta Drum.... works as good as usual, but is still and always been out a little - very strange, depending on the stock, if I'm using a 10pt coated stock, color registration has always been a little out ( when the cyan and magenta are being used ((together)) - purple - dark blue etc ...)
