    It also started happening to me after about 6 months of use

    I have the same.

    So far I assumed it is because one of the toner cylinder is not enough pushed into the machine, or tend to glide outside as there is nothing but the machine front door to keep them in place. So, the rear gear of the toner are not enough engaged with the one of the machine. So, it "jumps" over some of the teeth of the gear. It can damage both toner and machine gears --> I have to figure out how to actually fix those cylinder.

    I have the same problem after 8 mths use. Samsung tech told me to replace toner cartridge(which I had just bought) as it may be faulty. I replaced the cartridge to only have the same problem. TRying to get it fixed underwarrranty.

I have found the issue with non-Samsung printer cartridges. I don't get the problem with Samsung cartridges.

My 2005 gmc Yukon makes a ticking funny noise when I first crank it in the mornings and it lasts about 3 Sec then return to normal..and a washing machine sound is coming from under the right driver side...

Balncer pulley or the other pulleys take the belt off and start it and see if does the same. The ticking noise you should see where it comes from when you take the belt off

2010 Honda Civic LX light ticking noise at Idle. 49000 miles on it. No Performance problems observed, But I was curious what the noise might be, And if Autozone can check the codes for anything wrong...

I doubt a "ticking" would cause a code unless it was something like a lifter sticking which may cause a misfire but your engine light would be on if this were the case. Now can you at least narrow down the area it is in like maybe one of the pulleys for your drive belt or does it seem to be in the engine itself. You can try taking the belt(s) off and starting the engine for a short time. If the "ticking" goes away without a drive belt(s) on it, then you need to find out what componant (alternator, A/C compressor, Power steering get the idea) is making the ticking noise. Codes are in most cases dealing with a sensor of some sort. Hope this helped you....

Hi! I tried to start my car (2000 Chrysler Cirrus) this morning, but it just makes a muffled growling noise an/or a ticking noise. My friend came by to jump start it, but that didn't work. Any ideas?

I could be wrong, but it sounds to me that your starter has just broke it's last leg. Many things can cause the starter to go bad. If all you hear is a ticking noise, then chances are that the starter gave up. You can have someone take it off and go to a parts store and have them test it for you, (some MAY charge you for this while others won't). This will tell you if your starter needs to be replaced. Be prepared. Considering the year, a replacement may very well be tastey expensive. Good luck. Hope this helps.

95 Lincoln Town Car: Engine Makes Loud Tapping Noise

It has to be internal. Is it your valves or a slapping piston? (Sorry but internal engine problems are hard to diagnose without tearing down the engine)

I was using my laptop when it threw up a message to turn it off then the screen went a green colour then blank.I have since tried to start it again but it is only making a funny noise.It is only 10 weeks...

I could go into a long explanation of how to troubleshoot the laptop but if it's only ten weeks old... take it back. if the noise you hear is like a ticking noise the hard drive may have quit.


incidentally was that a blue screen or green
