Question about Brother MFC-8860DN Printer

1 Answer

Squeaking Printer at my office has been making a loud squeaking sound for about a month.  It is right next to my desk and incredibly annoying / distracting.  I have read elsewhere online about squeaky Brother printers, but nobody seems to have a solution.  Any suggestions?

That's a mechanism issue inside..it's going to fail quite soon, so you may not have this problem for too much longer.

Often times dust or paper debris becomes lodged around the printer feed wheels. Use a can of compressed air to throughly blow out all areas accessable. If the printer is older it is usually cheaper to replace it than trying to repair.

HP LJ P2015DN making noise/squeaking


Hi,
As you mentioned that the printer makes loud grinding noise or squeaking when page comes out than i feel this is the noise coming out due to faulty fuser.
I want to be sure so please open the rear bin and try to print if still noise comes than i m sure it is fuser.
If there are smudges on the printed page or if some film coating is coming out with printed page than fuser roller are physically damage.
However in this case i assume fuser is faulty.
If there opening the rear bin noise goes off than top output rollers are faulty.

Thanks and Regards

It is most likely hte cartridge, sometimes the drum will give out a loud squeaking hollow sound, it is annoying but harmless. Try new cartridge if you have one.
also to confirm, take out cartridge and turn gears manually, it should make the noise slightly.
