HP cm4540 Fast ticking sound right of fuser/transfer belt area, backside of printer

CM 4540
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

Printer prints, noise just started.   Light, higher pitched ticking noise.

 

No stuck paper that can be seen.  Removed fuser and transfer belt and sound still occurs.

 

Visbile rollers move correctly.  Sound occurs when transfer belt assembly is moving at thime of machine startup and then stops, restarts when a print or copy job is submitted.

 

Time to call in a tech?

 

Thanks.

Remove the formatter, remove the covers and turn on the printer, when the motors start spin, hear which one is making the noise and replace it. I just fix 2 different printer with the same issue. RM1-5776
