    Oh, *that* scanner.

    Do yourself a favour and keep that printer printing as often as possible. I've had issues with HPs of that era developing flat spots on the rollers when unused for months at a time in hot offices.

    No, I did really mean an HP Laserjet 2200 printer with duplex attachment and ethernet. There's a little motor with a mirror attachment that scans the laser beam across the paper.
    You open up the laser chamber, slide a little plastic sleeve to the side and the motor shaft pops off. A couple of drops of oil and she runs and prints again. No more squealing.
    Otherwise you pay $40 for the whole "black box". And I did use Hammond Oil.

    If you mean *scanjet* 2200, I don't see why not, provide you use very very little oil and only on metal gears. If it's plastic, you should probably search for a plastic-safe lube, maybe lithium grease.

    The disk for the scanner should have come with a "jukebox" DOS program that lets you play songs (incl. Minuet in G) by moving the scanner head back and forth and hearing the straight-cut gear whine. That would be a good diagnostic step for you to take with the scanner open to locate the precise source of the whine.

    What kind of oil?

    The laser scanner motor on my HP Laserjet 2200 is squealing like an un-oiled TWG.
    Do you think I should try Hammond Oil on it?
Working...
