    Thanks for your fast response and for the unfortunate news that I was dreading. I believe my printer is over the year warranty. Can you recommend a great LASER all-in-one printer?

This is a mechanical motor failure. If the machine is still under warranty you definitely want to claim it under that. If it is not you will be much better off replacing the unit. Unfortunately it is more expensive to repair than it is to just replace. These Samsung units are notorious for these kind of problems. Personally I recommend you replace it with something like a Canon or HP... there is an amazing special going right now on this Canon from Amazon, only $86.87 with free shipping and no tax. In stores it's easily $150+. Plus this unit is much more compact, and is way more energy efficient, and more efficient with ink usage. I'd say just replace that printer unless you know it's under warranty. here is the one I am referring to for $86:

Logik LED TV making a constant tapping/clicking sound.


try turning off AND unplug for a couple minutes! USB may have pulled power down to start the switching noise. Try usb again and if it does it again then I wouldn't use that usb anymore.

the clicking sound is coming most likely from the printhead carriage, if you open the printer so you can see the cartridges, is the carriage stuck? trying to move to a direction and makeing the sound?

Mk4 gti vr6 has power but doesn't start, runs with pop start


Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

Hi, I had a start problem with my celica. tried to turn the car over and a constant clicking sound was made, however all lights were on and the radio was working.. thought possible starter problem,...


The problem is that your battery is extremely low. The repeated clicking sound is your starter relay trying to engage, then releasing again when the starter takes the remaining voltage available to try to turn. When the relay disengages, the starter can no longer take any voltage at all, so the relay again engages and the process starts over. This results in "CLICK, CLICK, CLICK, CLICK...." There simply is not enough power available to operate both the relay and the starter.

Your alarm system doesn't have enough voltage to function properly. It "thinks" that someone is trying to steal your car or is messing with your battery cables. It doesn't know the difference between low voltage from a dead battery and low voltage from somebody disconnecting wires. It is simply responding to the low voltage condition as it is designed to do. Fix the voltage problem and you will fix your security system. No need to reset anything.

Jump-start the car or replace the battery and get your charging system checked to make sure everything is functioning properly. It is possible that the battery is good but you have a bad alternator and the battery is low because it is not being charged.

Grundfos JPF4A pump. takes a long time to get up to prime then once it kicks in after running water it gets to 50 shuts of but drop pressure instantaneously and kicks back in again. The constant on off...


The check valve is bad. When the system builds up pressure and shuts off the check valve prevents water from dropping back down the well line. When the check valve goes bad water drops back down the well line and siphons water back out of the well tank causing the switch to kick on and off constantly. The check valve will between on the well line coming from the drop pipe. It may be making a constant rattling noise as pump is running. Replace the check valve and you should be fine. Also check the pressure in bladder tank it should be 2psi below the "cut-in" pressure for the switch.

SPEEDLITE 580EX TTL Flash: flash is making a constant beating/clicking noise ...


Loosen the two small screws under the flash on the swivel head. Turn flash on. You may need to twist the head just slightly. Flash bulb moves back and forth in the swivel head when zooming. If you dropped the flash, this may have jarred it from the track. I had the same problem with mine, and the above solution fixed it. Zoom works again and no clicking noise. Let me know.

Check and see how much your alternate is putting out. Make sure that your battery cables are clean. Check the water in the battery. It sounds more like a connection problem than stater.
