Hp HP LaserJet 1200

hp laser 1200 makes terrible loud noise

I was printing several pages when in the middle of this job, my printer printed a complete page then stopped and a loud noise erupted. I turned off my printer, waited a few minutes, turned it back on and still have the noise. I can hear the motor running and the big green light is on and steady. I can take out the toner and shut the door and the printer will scream again. It sounds like a stuck gear (although it is not a grinding sound) not able to turn and I feel it has something to do with feeding the paper to the printer but could be wrong. Suggestions?
Sounds like the scanner laser motor needs lubrication. Search this forum for information on performing this procedure.

If the noise is still present without the toner installed, then it is not the laser. Sorry for the mis-information in the previous post.
