Resolve Windows 10 related issues for your HP computers or printers by HP Windows 10 Support Center
I would like to eliminate the screeching noise of sprocket wheels clashing when the carrier has moved to start a print or when the initial setup is being completed after having turned on the printer. Otherwise, everything is working fine.
Welcome to the HP Support Community. I'd like to help.
Let's try these steps -
1) Take out the cartridges.
2) Unplug the power cord from the printer & wall.
3) Wait for 30 seconds.
4) Plug the power cord back into the printer and wall, ensure the printer is plugged into the wall & not to a surge protector.
5) Insert the cartridges back into the printer.
Also, try updating the printer's firmware - HP Printers - Updating or Upgrading Printer Firmware
If the issue still persists, I'd suggest you Contact HP in your region regarding the service options for your printer.
Have a great day!
