Dell 948 All in One Printer

This question is not answered

 - has started making an awful clunking noise when I switch it on.  Any idea as to what might be causing this?

  • dlcarter,

    If this was a loud bang, then it may be the encoder strip.

    Try reading...

    Cleaning the encoder strip (Loud bang from printer carriage)

    The first post is to clean it. the second post explains on how to reattach if it came off. Please do this when you have time and patience.



    What is a Dell Service Tag and how do I locate it?

  • Thanks for your help but it was not a loud bang, it a a continuous noise when switched on.  I shall however have a look at the encoder strip to see if there is anything wrong.
