all printers start to make noises with the time , ill asure you that there is nothing rong with it others will tell you that you need to buy a new one that your will only last a few more months NO!! not true your good bro
Did you open the printer and remove the cradle lock and packing. These are shipped with new printers to keep the internal components from moving during transport. Open the front door and make sure all of the packing is removed and the print cartridges are installed correctly.
Not sure if it's the same problem as yours or not..... Even when the printer is turned off, it will make a noise about once an hour or so. It sounds like the print heads 'un-park' then park themselves again. Strange...... Bob
First try to check the printer for any stuck or jam paper inside. Sometimes this one can cause abnormalities on the mechanical to work, and result giving a strange sound and may also can cause a damged on the unit.
Better to inspect and check it first. or better to call a printer tech to do it for you.
check and clean the inside of the printer. (maintainence). make sure the ink cartridge is out of the printer, and the don't have any ink smear where it shouldn't have.
you might have to get a small screw driver to tighten down some of the screws.
make sure the paper tray is attached to the pirnter correctly and tight, nothing broken.
I don't know if you can discribe what kind of strange sound?
Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.
