I found another posting stating that the culprit was the black toner cartridge. Sure enough I changed our black cartridge and the grinding noise has stopped. No wonder the grinding noise was not happening all the time only when the black cartridge got low. Thanks for the help!

Lexmark has nozzle check feature, which prints test
page so you can see if nozzles are working. It's under printer
properties/maintenance or similar.But depends which type of ink did you use for refilling. If you used so-called universal ink for all printers, then you're stuck. I tried such
ink on my Z33 and got same result. I ended with new Canon i550.If you did use such low-cost ink, i suggest you totally disassemblecartridge, clean it thoroughly, dry it and get new ink specially designed for Z65. When i got this result, i took out sponge, clean it, clean cart
itself until clean water was coming from nozzles, dried it out and refill. let me know the result.

How do I clear the memory for the Lexmark c510 printer when I receive a memory full warning?


This is from the service manual, unfortunately there isn't a cold reset, you can perform an EP factory reset in the diagnostic mode, but this won't cure your problem. Investing in some more memory is the best answer
Press Go to clear message
and continue printing job. Job
may not print correctly.
Press Menu to open Job Menu
and cancel current job.
To avoid this error in future:
• Simplify print job by
reducing amount of text or
graphics on a page and
deleting unnecessary
downloaded fonts or
macros.
• Install additional printer
memory.

Grinding noise only when printing a large print job


It is passable the grinding noise is coming from one of the toner cartridges in the printer.

Check for any toner cartridges which are stiff or difficult to turn by hand
Replace and refilled toners or compatible toners with original manufactures toners.
If you have alternative toners available replace each toner in turn to see if the cause can be identified to a particular toner.

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing


Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!
