Here's what I posted in regards to my CLP 300 which had the same problem. Might be the same thing??...
Mine did this after I replaced a toner cartridge (the round ones). Here's what causes the loud clicking:
Some (most?) replacement ink cartridges have a little square chip -- like a mini circuit board -- on them which gives the printer information about how full they are. This is located on the insertion end, right next to the round black thing with the little gears on it.
For the cartridge to go in all the way, and allow the gears to properly "seat," the square "circuit board" needs to "float" just a little on the spongy thing it's attached to. So when you push the cartridge in FIRMLY, the gears seat, and the "circuit board" will end up getting pushed in about 1/16 of an inch.
I think what happens in some cases (at least with mine) is some cheap replacement cartridges don't let the "circuit board" push in at all, which means the gears don't quite seat properly, and, as they are trying to connect on the printer's gear receivers, they are constantly connecting and disconnecting, causing that loud clicking noise.
On one cartridge just pushing in the "circuit board" really hard freed it up and allowed it to "float" (be pushed in little when the cartridge was then inserted). In another case, I ended up getting a butterknife and prying off the circuit board (breaking the plastic or glue seal that was holding it) then setting back in, on top of the little spongy sticky thing it's supposed to float on.
In both cases, the cartridges were then able to go in all the way, and the clicking noise stopped.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Loud clicking sound
We had the same problem, with a slightly different solution... it turned out in our case that the new toner cartridge's internal drum was too stiff, so the printer was trying to turn the toner spindle and failing, resulting in the clicking noise. Our solution was to manually turn the black center gear by hand a few times, and in doing so loosen the drum up a little, so that the printer could turn it. We put it back into the printer, and voila! No more clicking noise.
Thanks to whitehorse1 for his (or her) solution... though it wasn't the exact same problem for us, it was what put us on the right track. :)

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.

Sounds like the problem I had where the plastic gears that drive the roller on one of the the toner cartidges are broken.
Your gunna have to take it to a repair shop or send it back where ever you got it. If they won't take it might still be under Samsung's warranty.

SOURCE: Not picking up paper
Most new printers and copiers will attempt to feed paper several times before failing and giving a jam condition. It sounds like that is what is happening to your printer.
Your tray rollers may be dirty. Remove the tray and use a clean cloth with mild detergent to clean the rubber rollers. Do not use alcohol this will dry the rollers out. If problem continues replace the tray rollers.
