THE LOAD CLICKING NOISE COULD BE THE CARRAGE JUMPING IN AND OUT, DUE TO THE CARRIAGE BEING JAMMED,SWITCH OFF POWER AND TRY MOVING CARRAGE ALONG SLIDE, REASON FOR THIS ANSWER IT HAPEND TO MY PRINTER AND I CLEARED IT BUY DOING AS ABOVE
seems a case of carriage jam n needs servicing.. howevr, do it if ur printer is out of warranty and u r a professional.. check for loose/faulty carriage-belt and the drive-assembly..jammed/sticky cleanser-unit (esp the rubber, gears n base).. also chance of defective/faulty photo/opto-coupler 'sensor(s)'..the diodes and resistors in dis section.. always better to hv professional supervision, contact ur system admin/vendor....
The loud clicking noise is probably the carriage trying to move and something is keeping it from doing so. Check to see there are no foriegn objects obstructing the carriage head from moving across the paper.
If nothing is found, then likely a hardware error exists.
hope this helps!
yes, that is a carriage jam and not paper, the grinding is from the clean station that gets blocked with dried ink and cant move. you need to open the printer and clean the ink off of the clean station so it can clean properly and not cause a carriage jam.
Ink and paper light on : head carriage error/general error. Head can't move extremely to right : head carriage blocked or CR motor error.
Turn of printer, unlock head carriage lock. Move head left and back to right (to parking position). Is it move freely?
if the printer power light is off and the paper and ink light are flashing there are a few things you can try.
1. remove all paper from the printer.
2. lift cover and check for paper jam
3. check to see that the ink cartridge cover is completley closed. (the covers do actually pop themselves open and jam)

Well, I'm not too happy that the only response I got was solicitation for the Premium Assistance Plan.
Figuring that the printer had pretty much died, I allowed my husband, Mr. Fix-It, to give it a try. He simply pushed up on the front end of the ink carrier and slid it into the opening. This allowed him to get at the cartridges and push gently down on the new cartridge I'd installed. It had not been seated completely. Works fine now.
I'd be curious to know why I found a huge ink spot under the printer. It has probably been there for quite some time, as I usually just dust around things rather than move them.
turn off the printer.
press and hold the ink and paper button while turning on the printer, wait for 5 seconds then release the button and press the paper button for at least 10 sec.
if done correctly , you will see the carriage start moving
