I looked through the repair kits for the hp1200 and did not see but one and it did not fit my problem. My 1200 started running and making a loud squeal on power up. It used to reset on power down and back up and was working fine for a while.
Now it just runs constantly and squeals the entire time until I pull power. It will not quit. I do not have it connected to a computer right now as it's only for printing from the laptop when the kids need it.
Any advice on the noise, or a repair for it?

The part making the noise looks like flat metal disc which is spun by a motor. Normally this motor has gone dry and needs cleaning. Be sure to clean the sides of the metal disc after handling it.
