Hp HP LaserJet 4

hp lj 4+ Squealing

I have a hp lj 4+ that makes a hell of a noise either when warming up or printing. I cannot tell exactly where it is coming from but it happens when whatever I print is getting ready to actually print.

It just started this about a week ago. It doesn't do it every time, I would say something like one time out of five.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

If you open and close the top cover and the motors turn, do you hear the noise. If so is is probably the toner cartridge. If not then it could be the laser/scanner motor.

Yup, hear the sound then too.

I guess it is time for a new cart even though this one is probably only half used.

Thank you very much for the reply!
