HP Laserjet 4L gears?

Problem. I was printing some stuff when my HP 4L printer started making a grinding noise. I opened it up to try and narrow down the problem and it seems that it can't turn the gear on the toner cartridge. It I take out the gear that turns the toner cartridge, all the other gears work fine but once I put it back it, it can't turn that one gear and starts makin the grinding noise because of it. Any ideas on why the toner cartridge gear won't turn? I tried a different cartridge and it had the same problem so I'm fairly sure it's not the cartridge itself. Thanks.
