Sounds like it is doing a print head cleaning. There may be a way to disable it after every printing. Maybe not.

Clicking noise when printing

Had similar problem. Putting my hands on the front surface of the printer, the click seemed to be felt strongest in front of the pink ink cartridge. I took the cartridge out, looked at the back of it, where there's a little black wheel, and tried turning it. That wheel was stuck (whereas the other colors & the black would turn). Tried printing with the pink cartridge out and no more clicking noise. I guess I'll just replace my pink cartridge. Maybe see if there's a similar problem with one of your cartridges?

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.

Check the toner cartridge make sure it is all the way in. Also full out all those toner cartridges and check the gear that rotates when you print see if there is no broken teeth. This happens on mine too.

My 2210 all-in-one printer has a contiuing clicking noise after powering it on, and it will not copy, print, or scan. It will not work at all. I have been through all of the trouble shooting protocols and...

There appear to be two possible reasons for this clicking noise - one is in the scanner head reset, and the other in the print carriage. Thare are several solutions for the first if you search the web, and they require removval of the scanner glass and cleaning. The second seems to be often connected with a broken spade-like latch on the right of the carriage which gets pushed forward by the printing mechanism when it reaches the right hand end of its reset. I have mended one on mine and the printer now prints, but I have not yet solved the loud clicking which comes from somewhere near the latch.

Follow instruction into the manual and to a reset to factory defaults. This should align and correct the issue. If not you have defective heads. Contact the factory for warranty replacement.
