Is this sound bad? *With video and photos*
I think the unreadable string of text is from the ink running out but I am including an image just in case.
This printer has been my “go to" for years when I need to run rough drafts or make visual notations on a document for a guide I am making modifications to as an example. The ink is cheap and I can keep the wear off of my real printer.
However, I went to use it and it was a bit difficult to setup but I clearly got it going. However, it now makes those noises when I run a long print job (even with 2 page merging as I did for this to cut back on paper use). It persisted through the job (10 page) so I suspect it'll never go away.
Does this sound like a motor issue or something I can solve with new white lithium grease? I know where to get some so it isn't a problem to apply new stuff but it also sounds like a bad motor. I'm really looking for a second opinion on the issue. It's always made sounds someone who doesn't know better that sound bad but this is bad enough it's beyond a PEBCAK error.
I tried using white lithium grease on the gearbox in the printer (and the rail the ink carrier is on) and it doesn't make a difference. It still sounds awful.
Is this a good question?
