Loud groaning noise when copier is turned on.

My Copystar CS-1510 makes a loud groaning, whining, moaning type noise every time it is turned on. There are no error codes or messages on the display. I can still make copies; but, the noise is horrible.

Great Suggestions, also, if there is a toner "cartridge" and the machine or toner cart. has been sitting for a while (especially in heat) it may need to be shaken, loosened up, or otherwise replaced all together. Good Luck!

Try this to localize the problem:
1- take out the drum and turn it by hand, does it make a noise?
sometimes the drum makes a sqeaking hollow sound, because the blade is rubbing against it and is too dry.( will not be as loud but you will know if it is the problem)

2- take out the fuser and do the same.
Now you have isolated the problem, if none of them are making any audible noise then it's probably a gear.
Good luck

Hi cayb1221,

This sometimes a common problem that cannormaly be solved by one of two ways:

1: replace cartridge. it is most likely that this is causing the grinding nose.
2: Replace the fuser

these are the two main parts of any laser unit that will make grinding noises (cog driven parts)

Hope this helps

Cs-1510 makes loud high pitch noise when copying

loud noise is usually coming from the laser unit. if you can ger to it, lubricate it's polygon motor shaft with some oil. It usually works fine afterwards. It is a bit of a hassle to remove the laser unit.
