I had the same thing happen to me, it turned out the the power supply failed. It is located on the right side of the printer. There was a capacitor that blew. After replacing the capacitor the printer started up just fine. You will need to remove the right panel and replace the capacitor.

    Have the same problem, and how do you know which capacitor to replace? Or should I just replace the power supply board?

Why is my samsung clp making a clicking noise?


Is the printer making a clicking sound when it is printing? Or is it just making a clicking sound but there are no light and the printer appears to be dead except making a clicking sound?

I know of a cause for either case.

Case 1. It is clicking when printing. Sometimes the toner cartridges are not seated properly in the imaging unit, and causes the gear on the cartridge to slip making a clicking sound as the gear is being turned. Try pulling out the cartridges and try turning the gear. It should turn smoothly without binding. If it binds, there is not much you can do about it except replace it when it goes empty. Reinsert the cartridge and check that it inserted completely into the imaging unit.

Case 2. Printer is dead, not printing except making a clicking sound. This is due to the power supply board failure. Usually the failure is due to a blown filter capacitor on the power supply board. The power supply is located on the right side of the printer. Remove the right side panel to get access to the board. The board can be either repaired or replaced. Hope this helps you.

When I turn on my Samsung CLP-600N laser printer, I just get a clicking noise. When I turn it off, it continues to click for a minute or two and then stops. The lights do not go on.


it sounds like a faulty power supply, when you apply power it charges the capacitors in the psu but as it is faulty is unstable hence the clicking, it continues as the capacitor discharge until all power drains

I have a samsung model LNT4066fx ,series S303 its


The slow turn-on is normally a sign of a failing power supply and certain conditions could cause noise in the digital circuits of the set. The clicking is likely a relay that is controlled by PS circuits that are detecting a fault condition and repeatedly disconnecting the AC. The late turn-on will eventually turn into no power on at all.

I turn on the samsung clx3160 and it just makes a clicking sound. The motors don't start or get a display on the lcd. It seems to be stuck. What could be the problem?


I've seen that with generic toners, usually they won't turn properly and the noise you hear is the gears grinding trying to turn them. If you remove the cover on the right you can see which one won't go and replace that toner, or if there's a generic refilled toner inside, replace it...

Please try the following to resolved the issue:

Run a series of head cleaning
1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing. Make sure there are no error lights or messages appearing in the LCD.
NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.
2. Load letter size paper.
3. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTER & FAXES then right click on CX3200 printer Icon then select printing preferences
4. Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the printhead. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
6. When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.
7. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.
8. If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).
9. Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.
If the nozzle check still has gaps after you have run at least 3 consecutive cleaning cycles and replaced the affected ink cartridge(s) with genuine Epson inks, your printer will require service.
