Everyone has faced a problem or a problem with their printer, which is why manufacturers have provided information on the steps they can take to fix common issues. A lot of times, troubleshooting printer issues takes little more than cursory desktop know-how and adherence to procedural steps. Below is the method for fixing the grinding noise from your HP Deskjet printer.
Troubleshooting Printer Problems Such as Grinding Noise
- Turn it on now. If you are dealing with the 3820, 5500, or 6000 series, open the cover and make sure the carriage is in the middle. If you don’t, you’ll need to take the power cable out first.
- If the carriage moves to the middle station or lowers the service stop, carry out the cartridges. Look inside for broken parts. If the carriage has not moved to the middle, try sliding it manually.
- Close the cover of the printer.
- Please refer to the relevant support document online to see how the cartridge can be removed from the right side of the printer.
- Take the back door of the entry. Alternatively, remove the two-sided printing device and see if any of the paper has jammed anywhere. Remove the obstructions you find.
Double-check the paper. This is to make sure that the carriage is left on the right-hand side of the printer. Switch the rear guide rollers upwards five times, then four times. If you can not do that, remove the top cover and push the carriage to the right (assuming it is not already there and can be moved). Try to roll the rollers again, push the clutch inward this time. If this doesn’t work, move on to the next step.
- Replace the rear access door part or the two-sided printing part. Replace the top cover where it was initially in place.
- Plug it in the power cable.
- Turn the printer on and put the cartridges back in place. If you can push the carriage, but the grinding process has not stopped, the issue may be with the paper feed. If it’s the carriage that doesn’t move, there’s something wrong with the carriage stall.
- Attach the cartridge, and then if you see the solid power light on the printer, run a self-test to see if it works correctly.
