Guess it depends on who you talk with at HP because they are well aware of this problem on both the 4250s and 4350s from a document dated March 2005.
From the first time you hear the sounds there might not be any damage and by reseating the fuser, can eliminate the noise. If it continues, pull the fuser out and see if the blue latch clips on the fuser are intact. If they are then inspect the gear on the fuser and the black gear on the swing plate for wear. Replace one or both if worn.

The swing plate replacement is a big repair takes about an hour and requires removal of a lot of assemblies. There is a new service note detailing what has to be done on the CSN site.
It will work, we've seen this issue at most of our customers sites.

I dont like newer models at all, they cause to many problems.
The quality of laser printers is decreasing.

Is there a way we could suggest to HP that a new section for trouble shooting? 'Funny Noises' would really go a long way with quite a few of us techs.

More like it was IMpossible NOT to 'hear'!!
Thanks for the .pdf! I really could have used this exact document 2 weeks ago. Plenty of pictures clearly showing the location of the part as well as the part number.

Received the replacement swing plates in today, took myself and my colleague about 15 mins to replace just the black gear.
So all in all it wasn't half as bad as I thought it was going to be. But if I had have relied on the HP offical document, it would have taken hours (they tell you to change the whole swing plate)
Thanks for the advise lads.
