Thank you for joining HP Forums. 

I'll be glad to help you 🙂 


As I understand the printer is making an excessive noise,

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

is that a grinding or humming noise?


While you respond to that, here's what you need to know:

Noise issues are difficult to troubleshoot remotely and they could easily misguide even when we are close to the device. 


Please do confirm if the noise is a grinding noise or squeaky/humming noise. 

If this happens only while calibrating, I would suggest you to re-check & validate your toner cartridges.   
One of the toner cartridge may be malfunctioning. 


If not the toner cartridge, then it would be one of the printer hardware component causing the failure And an HP Tech may need to perform physical inspection of the device and the error condition, I recommend you Contact HP to setup a repair/replacement service.
