The reasons behind this grinding noise
A grinding sound can be heard when the printer is turned on or during printing. Blinking lights may cause noise. The problem may arise because of a carriage stall or a paper jam.

- Turn on the printer.
- Release the power cable from the back of the printer.
- If the carriage moved to the center, or if the service station is lowered, withdraw the cartridges. Examine the printer for any broken parts.If the carriage did not move to the center, go for manually slide the carriage to the centre. If the carriage is locked either in the right or left position, then proceed to step 5.
- Shut the top cover of the printer.
- If your printer is HP Deskjet 900 series printer, go to the HP support document removing the cartridges if the printer will not Turn On or if the carriage is frozen (bpd50074).
- Remove the rear side door, or the automatic two-sided printing attachment, and look for any paper jams or paper hindrances. Remove all the obstructions.
- Check to confirm that the carriage is placed on the right side of the printer. Turn the rear paper guide rollers ascending five times, and then descending four times. If the rollers will freeze, open the top part and slide the carriage towards the right (if it is not present there and if the carriage can move). Try to rotate the rollers again while pushing the clutch in. If again, the rollers do not move, follow the next step.
- Swap the rear access door accessory or the automatic two-sided printing accessory. Shut the top cover.
- Plug the power cable back to the position.
- Turn on the printer, and substitute the cartridges if possible. If the carriage moves, but there is again a grinding noise, then there may be a paper feed issue. In the case, if the carriage will not move, then it is the issue of carriage stall.
- After cartridge installation, if the printer is showing a solid power light, then perform a self-test on your printer.
