Question about Xerox WorkCentre XD100 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Symptom: Grinding sound.

System makes a loud grinding or flapping sound when warming up and making copies.  No sound when on and at rest after warmup.  Also sound stops when right side door is opened.  Still makes perfect copies.

This could be either your drum cartridge or your fuser unit.

Take your toner cartridge out and look right up front where the drum cartridge empties 'waste toner' back into the toner cartridge.  There's a little flap there that slides back and forth on the very end.  Slide it back and see if toner is packed in there solid.  If so, vacuum it out.  Then you'll have to replace that drum.  Sometimes you can salvage them by cleaning out all the waste toner, but usually the gear in back has already stripped and it's no use.

If everything looks fine with the cartridges, it's probably the fuser.  You can buy a new one here:

The fuser is that part of the machine that gets real hot.  If you open the right side door, it'll be right close to the top.  There are usually 4 screws holding it in place.  If you take those screws out, you should be able to hold it away from the machine while it's running (you'll have to cheat the door).  If the grinding stops as soon as you pull the fuser away, that's probably your problem.

Let me know if any of this sounds too technical.  eric AT essonline.us

Random Short Grinding/Buzzing Noise from my Notebook gets amplified through PA system!!! Don't know where it is coming from or when it will happen next!!!


try and blow out the laptop with compressed air as it could be your fan making noise, make sure to leave the laptop on a flat surface, and don't press too ******* the palm rest. i say this because i have a dell 1545 and the hard drive is located on the left side under the palm rest and if i apply too much pressure i hear a slight grinding noise. let me know if this helps and please tell me if you're near the machine when it does this grinding sound.

Toshiba 2060 copier - warmup


No the machine has to warm up to make a copy. It may be in energy saver causing it to have to wake up and come alive . There are ways of changing the energy level settings. By entering the service mode but the toshibas are all number driven menus making it hard to navigate. good luck
