Could not find a product issue that fits but.  The printer makes a very loud beep when it starts to print.  Loud enough it wakes up sleeping family members when I work early in the morning.  HP chat told me there is nothing that can be done to turn it off.  Has anyone else had this issue.  Has anyone found a way to stop the noise?

If the printer power cord is plugged into a UPS (uninterruptible power supply) or power backup unit, that device may be making a beeping sound. Power off the printer and plug the printer power cord directly into a wall outlet or in a standard surge protector strip. The beeping noise should not occur again.

@petergroft29 has provided you with the most likely cause of the issue. UPS units cannot supply enough rush current to safely power a laser printer which can draw up to 10 AMPS when starting up.
