    The printer is making the same clicking. It's printing now but, the noise is loud and it sounds like something is broken inside the machine.

    I tried moving the rectangular blue button, but it doesn't help.

    The only thing that seems to help is keeping the tray almost empty.

    I have the same problem and the only way it works is to keep a low stack of paper in the tray.

Ok, i just tried this and it works--

pull out paper drawer, in the back of the paper drawer there is a rectangular shaped blue button located just right of center. the symbol on it is a lock. this button can be pushed forward (away from you) or backwards (towards you), push it backwards towards you til it clicks in place.

return paper drawer and print.

this solved it for me-

hope this helps

Loud clicking noise when attempting to print


Try removing the ink catridges and checking them for any damage like leaking ink. Then replace them and try to print. Also, make sure there is nothing stuck in the paper feeding tray.

My MFC8460N Brother won't print. It makes this


Gears on the tray is broken, or the gears that lift the tray. (thus the clicking noise). And the no paper is due to the actuators underneath not being activated because of the non lift.

Why Samsung CLP-300 Printer making annoying/loud clicking noises?


So try to get the black toner cartridge out of the Machine. On zhe backside of the Cardridge is a gear. Try to turn the gear, maybe the Toner inside is clump together. When you can turn it very easy in both directions it's fine.

Paper Error


The paper lift housing is cracked. The clicking noise is made by the lift gears skipping teeth.
It needs to be serviced...in the mean time, you might try feeding 11 x 17 paper through the manual feeder (bypass tray). Or if you need many 11 x 17 copies, it is possible to set another paper drawer to 11 x 17 size...just set the plastic tag in the front of cassette to LD so the machine knows what size of paper to expect (if tag is set incorrectly, machine will jam EVERY TIME)

Samsung ML 2510 printer won't feed paper


I have experienced the same problem . . . a little earlier this evening. I took all the inner components out, took apart the toner cartridge, I thought that the gearing was very hard to turn on it and on the inside of printer, paper feeding etc... and that is wear the loud noise is coming from. Out of desparation, I shook it to hear if anything internally was loose and there was and still is, I would not say its the best solution or by any means a permanent but you may be able to dislodge the debris from the gearing and be able to print. After it was dislodged from my printers gearing it has worked again. Though I believe it's temporary. I am looking for a guide or how-to on opening the printer casing to physically remove the debris. If you know of a guide let me know and I am sure it would help you too.
