it chirps ?

is it possible that it is receiving a fax ( i mean from a wrong number maybe) that might make a chirping kind of noise

can you look at the printer next time it does it?

if its getting a fax or ringing for one it will say something on the lcd screen. you might have to hit start to receive the fax

then you can if nothing else call the faxer and tell them they have a wrong number

I tried your remedy and it did nothing. Now it does this at 6 AM for about an hour. Again at 6 Pm for about and hour. I am thinking of buying a new one an it will not be a HP. I am not paying $30.00 for a fix .It might be unber Warranty. I an not find my papers.

i know this sounds silly but it happened to a friend of mine

he was sure his computer was making a funny noise every day at the same time

when he moved it after a week he found an alarm clock had fallen behind it.

if it is definitely coming from the printer, please tell me what it says on the printer display while it is happening.

No one helped from HP. It stopped by its own.
Technician: Robert M., Consultant replied 5 months ago

Is there anything further I can do for you?

I think your customer service is lacking. You answer my questions the next day and you have to wait for 30 minutes to talk to on the phone. They gave me a special # and when I used it I was told they were too busy to answer my call and to call again later. The problem is gone so don;t contact me again.
