Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
1. Make sure nothing is jammed in the paper feed.
2. Remove and reinsert the toner block, checking for obstructions while it is removed. ( the thing with the green pull lever. First thing you see when you flip open the front cover. Can't miss it)
3. Open the very top door flap, see if anything is jammed in there.
Those are general tips, but with the vaguity of your problem description, there is very little else anyone can do.
Please be more specific if none of these general techniques fix your problem, otherwise your problem will never be solved.

The sound is most probably from one (or more) of the drum units. You can check by taking them out and trying to run the visible gears by hand. If you have spare drums, change them one at a time until you find the defective one.

Here's what I posted in regards to my CLP 300 which had the same problem. Might be the same thing??...
Mine did this after I replaced a toner cartridge (the round ones). Here's what causes the loud clicking:
Some (most?) replacement ink cartridges have a little square chip -- like a mini circuit board -- on them which gives the printer information about how full they are. This is located on the insertion end, right next to the round black thing with the little gears on it.
For the cartridge to go in all the way, and allow the gears to properly "seat," the square "circuit board" needs to "float" just a little on the spongy thing it's attached to. So when you push the cartridge in FIRMLY, the gears seat, and the "circuit board" will end up getting pushed in about 1/16 of an inch.
I think what happens in some cases (at least with mine) is some cheap replacement cartridges don't let the "circuit board" push in at all, which means the gears don't quite seat properly, and, as they are trying to connect on the printer's gear receivers, they are constantly connecting and disconnecting, causing that loud clicking noise.
On one cartridge just pushing in the "circuit board" really hard freed it up and allowed it to "float" (be pushed in little when the cartridge was then inserted). In another case, I ended up getting a butterknife and prying off the circuit board (breaking the plastic or glue seal that was holding it) then setting back in, on top of the little spongy sticky thing it's supposed to float on.
In both cases, the cartridges were then able to go in all the way, and the clicking noise stopped.
Hope this helps!

You all say that the toner cartridge is okay, so it could be the hole OPC Image Drum or the ITB which is the tranfer Belt.
The Tranfer Belt is behind the Image Unit.

the feed roller gear is stripping; remove the cover and, adjust the gear retainer before it completely fails. (it should be easy to see the gear once the printer cover is removed.
