Hi Richard,

There are few troubleshooting steps that you can perform to fix this issue. This issue is related to Printhead Failure ( that holds the cartridges )

1. Disconnect the Power cord from back of the printer ( printer must be power on when you do this )
2. Wait for 10 seconds and plug the cable to Printer
3. Wait for the printer screen to display the menu
4. Try to print test page.


Or Try the Step Below


This is easily fixed with the following key sequences. You do NOT have to open the printer and unplug a circuit board.

1) press * and # at the same time
2) press 1, 2, 3 and "support R0632M" should display
3) press > and "information menu" should display
4) press > and "configuration menu" should display
5) press OK and "hardware failure status" should display
6) press OK "failure status: clear". Press OK to clear
7) press CANCEL
8) press CANCEL
9) press CANCEL
10) turn printer off, unplug power cord for 2 minutes, plug cord back in then turn printer back on.
NOTE: I did this and the fist time the error came back. Do the sequence again (as I did) and the error will be replaced with the usual print cartridge initialization screens. Print a test page to make sure.

Why is my samsung clp making a clicking noise?


Is the printer making a clicking sound when it is printing? Or is it just making a clicking sound but there are no light and the printer appears to be dead except making a clicking sound?

I know of a cause for either case.

Case 1. It is clicking when printing. Sometimes the toner cartridges are not seated properly in the imaging unit, and causes the gear on the cartridge to slip making a clicking sound as the gear is being turned. Try pulling out the cartridges and try turning the gear. It should turn smoothly without binding. If it binds, there is not much you can do about it except replace it when it goes empty. Reinsert the cartridge and check that it inserted completely into the imaging unit.

Case 2. Printer is dead, not printing except making a clicking sound. This is due to the power supply board failure. Usually the failure is due to a blown filter capacitor on the power supply board. The power supply is located on the right side of the printer. Remove the right side panel to get access to the board. The board can be either repaired or replaced. Hope this helps you.
