When this printer sits idle it is perfectly quiet. However when it comes time to print something and the motor (or whatever) kicks on it is very loud and high pitched. It continues to whine like this until it is done printing and the motor (or whatever) shuts off. Then it goes back to perfect silence again. This printer is just over one year old with very low volume on it. Wish I would have waited for the 2300 series now. Thanks For All Responses to this.!!!!!!!!!
I've seen a few 2200's that indeed have trouble with the Polygon motor in de laser unit, the lid on the unit sometimes resonates with this noise, making it worse, making sure the lid is closed tight can help a bit, otherwise there is not much you can do about it besides getting a new (expensive) laser unit.
If it's a high pitched, constant noise, not a grinding and not a squeaking, I'd say check the laser assembly. There's a spinning mirrior in there that can sometimes develop worn out bearings and get off center, causing a VERY annoying noise.
Hello Stephen. We have 4 HP 2200dnprinters. One of them has a squeaking noise coming from the output area. Serial number is: CNGRD11501. This unit is about 1.5 years old. Please advise as to repair options. Thanks. David.
There is a HP service note about noisy face down delivery assemblies on 2200 printers, if this is your problem, then a HP Authorized Service Provider can fix it as a warranty item, even if the printer is out of warranty. Here's how HP puts it: A loud squeaking (not grinding) noise occurs from the Output Delivery Area. Service note applies to certain model and serial number ranges, email me the model and serial number and I'll check it for you. Stephen Thompson HP ASP I
