HP 4200 Making Squeaky Sound

I have a HP 4200 that is making a squeaky sound. My boss suggested that we use oil to solve the problem, I looked online and it said to use it on the rollers, I tried that and the problem still occurred. Is there another area I should use the oil on?

You likely need a maintenance kit.

oil on the rollers?  never heard that.
you can start by cleaning it out completely, then wipe and clean the rollers with a damp cloth, or with isopropyl alcohol
but you should start listening where the sound comes from if possible : if it is the gears, or the paper passing thru the rollers or fuser

normally, all these are taken care of by the maintenance kit
Fuser might be the culprit (1 of the part from maintenance kit) , but for my area here, replacing the maintenance kit for those old model is really expensive and not worth for it. So I would rather get a new printer where almost the same price with replacing just the maintenance kit. Using the oil wrongly might just making the A4 paper get dirty with the oil itself.
