    first check what isthe cause of the problem,the cartridge or the printer. Put another cartridge and see if the noise is still there.

    Ifthenoise persist, what kind of noise and from which side of the printer. Oiling is very rarely needed.

No Please don't oil any part of the printer, oiling may damage the complete printer first check if the nopise is coming from rear, Top, Front or side.
If noise is coming from Top than possibly top outbin roller are making noise.
If side tham may be toner cartridge or cartridge motor is making.
If noise is coming from rear than either fuser or the gear which rotates the fuser are making noise.
If noise is coming from from than Tray 2 pickup assembly or faulty tray is making noise possibly faulty registration assembly can also mak noise none of the part should be oiled only the faulty part should be replaced.

I removed left, rear and right sides. My guru suggested that I buy a can of compressed air and blow out accumulated dust and toner. Did. Hooked it up. Works fine - for now, anyway.

If the noise is a clicking-popping noise, you probably have bad gears, bad toner or a bad fuser

SOURCE: hp 1200 laserjet printer generates a lot of noise from the laser cartridge

I would leave the printer off and contact your printer's technical support department and let them know and they are the professionals specifically for that and they would be able to give you an answer and provide you with choices to fix the problem!

SOURCE: My HP Laserjet 1200 is screeching constantly

Probably the laser-mirror motor. It will screech until the load gives a error and the printer shows error/ is dead.
However, the motor can be lubed. Remove sides, remove screws found, remove top cover. Remove and open the black box containing laser. Remove motor board and lube the motor, dont get the mirror dirty. Asseble. Total time 15min...

Sorry, it's old, cranky, and worn out. Live with it, or buy a new one, it's not cost effective to fix it.

Hp laserjet 1200 series printer with high pitch nose when in printing process. During this loud noise, the roller turns but the paper is not picked up therefore printing does not occur.

HP LaserJet wont pick up paper


Try cleaning the feed roller. It may have debris on it, making it slip. Use alcohol on a lint free cloth. Often you'll see on the paper where the roller slipped on the paper. There may be a dark smudge where the roller slipped. Check it out.

If you cant get paper out from inside after removing cartridge then there is No easy fix, and the roller at rear is called a fuser, these parts dont come out easy,machine will need all covers removed, plugs disconnected and brackets removed, gears pulled off and fuser removed, maybe replaced if there is a reason why it wrapped around roller
