    Your advice seem to make sense. I will look for drum assembly first, and let you know how it goes.

Sounds like a broken drum drive gear. Try another known good drum assembly first. Parts can be googled and found. But, difficult for end user to replace. You have to remove all covers and fuser asm. Then gear housing from the left side to change the drum drive gear.

I have an HL-5280DW it keeps making this loud ticking sound when I go to print and it said to replace the drum and I did and it continues to make the loud ticking/popping sound. What should I do?


Take out the drum and toner shut the door and power up, if the noise is still there during the power up short run, you probably need a new fuser. If the noise goes away with toner and drum removed you probably need a new toner. New ones, especially generic toners are too hard to turn and make that noise.

When printing, the printer makes a loud sound


I first guess that it is the drum going out. If you have changed the drum......it is more than likely your fuser. Have you ran a supply check to get the status on your supplies?

VERY LOUD NOISE WHEN PRINTING WITH MY SAMSUNG CLP-300


You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.

Can't print


It flashes orange for a few seconds, and then back to green, and then back to orange every few seconds. I can't shut it off unless I unplug it. It also makes a horrible racket.

Oki C9500 makes VERY LOUD clunking noises but prints fine...


The sound is most probably from one (or more) of the drum units. You can check by taking them out and trying to run the visible gears by hand. If you have spare drums, change them one at a time until you find the defective one.
