HP Deskjet D2560 Making Loud Clicking Noise

HP Deskjet D2560 printer started making an awful noise when I turn it on or when it initiaties printing.  It almost sounds like a machine gun.  It sounds as if the ink cartridges are trying to move but something is causing them to be stuck.  I see no obvious signs of blockage and the printer does print.

This just started yesterday evening and I've never had this happen before.  I have not recently changed ink cartridges nor have I moved the printer or done anything out of the ordinary.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Try this link below. It's for a carriage jam. Usually when it's "machine gun noises", it's the carriage slamming against the wall, or a paper jam. Check all areas for baby, and clean rollers.

Re: HP Deskjet D2560 Making Loud Clicking Noise

Thank you for your reply, it does sound like some gears are grinding or something is jammed but I see nothing obvious.  I tried some of suggestions in that link to no avail.  Perhaps just time for a replacement.   It still prints, just sounds like it's ready for takeoff.

Thanks again, happy new year.
