Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That sounds to me like a problem with the sensors and/or the control circuitry that tells the printer where the carriage is.
Does it still print OK, despite the noisiness, though?
And how old is it?
This may unfortunately be a problem that requires a choice between repairing the printer and replacing it. We can try several things first, but that may be the ultimate result.
