Hi guys,
Out of the blue my printer is making a very loud clicking sound before it prints something. Other than that it works fine. Have changed cartridges, re-booted, etc.

Thanks

SOURCE: HP 4280 - new black refilled cartridge not recognised

hi steve... the solution to your problem is a costly one. the printer keeps in memory 2 cartidges for colour and 2 for black, when a third is placed in the printer the first one is deleted out of memory same for the colouredand same for the black... therefore you need 3 cartridges each to do the trick.
eg. if you want to use colour cartridge #2 then 1st place colour nuber 1 or 3, then turn it on let it reads, then open door and place in colour number 3 or 1 let it read, then take out and place in coulur number 2 and it will see it as new

I don't have a photosmart, but I do have an HP OfficeJet J4680 that clicks sometimes. Check to make sure the ink cartridges are installed correctly. That's what is sliding back and forth when you turn it on.

There may be nothing you can do about it. A lot of the HP printers make a lot of noise as they start up or prepare to print. Has your printer always made this noise or did it just start?
