Officejet 4630 printer makes high pitched whine even when not printing

 I just bought an Officejet 4630 printer for home use and noticed it makes an annoying high pitched whine whenever it's not sleeping, even when not printing.  Is not very loud, and would not be noticeable in an office environment due to ambient noise, but is obvious in a quiet home environment.  Is this normal for this model or is the unit defective?  Neither of my two previous inkjet printers made this noise.

I have the same issue!!  I just got the printer a couple days ago.  I am investigating further on the interwebs to see if there is an easy fix.  Otherwise, this printer has got to go and my days of endorsing HP are over.  Let me know if you find anything.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one! It's been driving me crazy the past few weeks and I'm elated I just found out what it was so I could turn it off, but so disappointed I won't be leaving it on unless I'm printing something. What a bummer. I will also post back If I find out anything.

Same issue - high pitched noise when the printer is on.  I haven't found a resolution.  For now I've been only turning it on when I use it.  Then I turn it right off again!  Ugh, it's a pretty annoying noise!
