My Pixma Pro 100 is screeching while it is printing.

Customer Question
My Pixma Pro 100...

My Pixma Pro 100 is screeching while it is printing. Printing is OK, I have cleaned the rollers and the print head with no success. I did look on one of your blogs, and someone mentioned running paper thru without printing. How would I do this? My printer to about 5 years old

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your printer?

Canon Pixma Pro 100

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your printer?

Maybe a month

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update the Operating System (OS) on the computer or device you're printing from?

My OS is up to date and were updated before this began

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I don't think so

Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

The screeching is most likely (if it is two-toned or not uniform, in the manner of 'screek-scrik, screek-scrik,' and so forth) owing to a high friction in the carriage area, perhaps one of the carriage rails.

WD-40 sprayed (NOT into the printer, but) onto a rag cloth, then wiped along the supporting metal rails that the carriage inside runs back and forth on, might well be enough to cure this problem.

But if not cured by that, it may be owing to a loose part, or a severe defect in the printer that would require either replacing the printer or having the printer repair-serviced.

- If this answers your question, please rate my answer. A five-star rating would be appreciated. Thank you.
