Printer Repair Questions? Ask IT Technicians for Answers ASAP
Sounds like a dirty print head rail. It is either ink residue or dry. Try gently cleaning it with some water.
Also with the Paper pick up roller(s) not picking up. Clean them with a damp terry cloth towel or a multi-purpose cleaner.
That should take care of the grinding sound noise also.
Also take out the ink cartridges and put them back in one at a time and then move the carriage over to the far left. Then restart printer.
