HP Officejet 4630 very noisy and squeaky

Officejet 4630
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This printer was brought out of storage and hadn't been used for a year or more.  I updated the firmware and purchased new ink cartridges.


The printer is functioning perfectly, the only problem is it is extremely loud.  Loud grinding, squealing and squeaking. 


I have been trying to determine where this is coming from, and if there is any way to resolve.  I'm afraid it may be too loud to use around the office.


If anyone has any thoughts or ideas about what gears or moving parts I can replace or grease.  Please let me know, thanks!


This is the printer.

This sound like a mechanical issue. 


Since you have already tried updating the Firmware, I suggest you contact HP Support for Service Options
