I have an Oki C5150N that is now making a grinding noise when the printer is turned on and when a doc is sent to begin printing. It is printing and the noise appears to be most prominent when the printer is warming up to print.

Unplug the printer and open up everything, looking for the paper jam. Use caution when removing the image drums as they are light sensitive. You don't want them exposed to light for more than 2 or 3 minutes. Hopefully you'll find and be able to remove the paper jam and everything will be fine. It seems strange that this problem presented itself right after you ran out of paper...
I have had a similar problem. . Black drum needed changing. There was also a grinding noise developing. I have taken each drum and toner module out of the printer and booted it up with one of the 4 missing. It was the Cyan drum that was making the noise. . Question is what can I do? I am not a printer expert. .
I will contact the local printing shop that I use for more info and will come back to you. I suspect that I will need a new drum . . .
The Resume light continues to blink after the paper jam is cleared.
The carriage is stuck or making a grinding noise.
1. Lift the top cover to the printer.
2. Turn the printer off and then on again.
3. Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer when the grinding noise starts.
4. Move the carriage towards the middle of the printer (this procedure may take a couple of tries to get the timing correct).
5. Take out the cartridges and close the top cover. Turn the printer back on!
6. Reconnect the power cord.
7. Open the top cover, reinstall the cartridges, and then close the top cover
