Re: HP Officejet Pro 8600: Grinding Noises When Printing

HP Recommended

Hi there, 

 

I saw your post and I am having the same problem. Did you have any luck with fixing the Chewbacca noises or did you end up buying a new printer?

 

Thank you!

Welcome to the HP Forums. I would be happy to help you with your HP Officejet Pro 8600 printer. I understand that you are getting grinding noise and you have already done some preliminary troubleshooting. 

 

Don't worry though as I have a few steps to determine the issue and find a solution as well,

  • Perform Hard reset the on the printer.
  • Remove the power cable from the printer when it is turned on.
  • Remove all other cables you have connected any.
  • Press and hold the printer power button for 60secs.
  • Connect the power cable to the printer and directly to wall outlet.
  • Turn on the printer.

If that does not fix the issue, follow the below steps.

  • Clear any jammed paper from the paper trays.
  • Check the carriage path with a flashlight.
  • Clean the rollers.

Click here and follow the document to perform above mentioned troubleshooting steps.

 

Let me know how it goes.

Cheers.
