Hp HP Color LaserJet 2840

What is wrong with my HP 2840?

Yesterday my HP 2840 began screeching while printing. Getting louder. Even stopped printing once.

can you tell what is wrong, what needs replacing and how much it would cost? I have changed modules and motors in HP 4+s; but time is scarce right now.
Without actually being able to hear the noise, I'm going to render my best guess. The most likely part to cause a screeching noise would be the imaging unit. That's the big unit in front of the toner cartridges. It's on the expensive side. It retails for $189.95. You can get remanufactured ones cheaper.

Eventually the black cartridge emptied and I had to replace it - that was the source of the screeching. I won't buy from that vendor again!
