Noise once you turn the machine on, it makes a continous clicking noise, like it's hung up. Can you help me?

    I have the same problem, but what's the solution??? How can it be hung up on something when we just turned it on??

  • kensterfly Jul 25, 2008

    I tried the cleaning instructions. It made no difference. I'm not sure how having a slightly smudged glass would prevent the printer from powering up anyway. I left the power off all night. I continue with the same symptoms. No power on light. Hour glass on the screen. The hour glass/logo are lit for eight seconds, then go black for two seconds, then back on. At the eighth second there is one muffled click, the screen goes black. Two clicks,then the screen comes back on. The "Clicks" are coming from the little vented box next to where the power cord plugs in.
    I have tried every combination of resets. #3,#6,#9 will bring up a partial white screen saying "Full reset" etc. But nothing happens. Reset/cancel? Nothing. Pressing the "on" button does nothing, UNLESS I hold the "on" button down a while then all four function buttons (copy,fax,scan,photo) start flashing and the screen goes blank. Pushing the flashing buttons does nothing. While they are flashing, if I push down the "on" button the flashing function buttons stop flashing but resume flashing when I release the "on" button. It takes a reboot (power off) for the function buttons to stop flashing and for the screen to return to the hour glass.
    I'm certain this is due to the power outages we had yesterday during a storm.
    When this started the scan tray was in the far right position. When I cleaned the glass I pushed the scan tray to the center, thinking it might realign it self upon power up. It did not move. Also, when I open the front the printer cartidge sled does not move to center but stays locked in the far right position.

    I also have reinstalled the software and ran an update.

    I've got a lot of work to do. I'm hoping for a quick home cure, otherwise this goes in the trash and I have to drive 50 miles to buy a new one.
    Thanks,
    Ken

Hi
try a partial reset :
Press and hold # and 3 while plugging in the power cord.

Hi
Have been through many possible solutions for this and finally got it to clear by holding down the setup button while I switched on the power.

It is all a bit random though: last week, 9 & # worked so I suspect that there is something more fundamental going on underneath.

    No error codes whatsoever, only a continuous display of the hourglass waiting symbol :-(

  • alifs Sep 15, 2008

    I think that Ken might be right about the root cause being power outages. When I have managed to get it reset and working, the next storm or power outage causes the problem to re-appear. I have worked through #9, #6 etc and each of them worked....once. I have now run out of things to try and like you, will have to replace it. I am loath to do so though as it's otherwise a good bit of kit that has worked well with no problems for three years.

It probably is. When you turn on a printer the machine goes thru a power on reset. Th main board checks different areas of the machine. You should be getting an error code are you?

Samsung Fax Machine keeps trying to warm up


I have similar problem, but it makes clicking sound also without a toner. And printer is powering off and on continuously. On the display there are some bars, nothing readable. After a minute or so it says Warming..., than it goes off, and so on and forth. Printer is in use on a daily basis.

Why Samsung CLP-300 Printer making annoying/loud clicking noises?


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.

My power went out during a printing job and now the printing job is stuck and I can not print it or delete it.


GO TO THE PRINTER DIALOG BUTTON, START MENU - SETTINGS - PRINTER, AND FIND THE PRINTER THAT IS HUNG AND RIGHT CLICK ON IT. CLICK ON OPEN WHICH WILL OPEN A BOX WITH ALL THE PRINT JOBS LISTED FOR THAT PRINTER. IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE PRINT JOB START AT THE BOTTOM AND DELETE THEM ONE AT A TIME. RIGHT MOUSE CLICK AND SELECT CANCEL. THE TOP JOB IS THE ONE THAT IS HUNG BUT THE PRINTER WILL HANG ON ANY UPCOMING JOB ONCE THE HUNG OPERATION IS CLEARED. IF THE PRINTER WILL NOT CANCEL THE PENDING JOB YOU MAY NEED TO REBOOT THE COMPUTER. WHEN THE COMPUTER COMES BACK UP IT MAY PRINT THE HUNG JOB OR JUST DELETE IT - NEVER KNOW

Will not shut down/ paper constantly jams. makes grinding sound


I had a 7170 series that gave similar, not quite as bad as yours, problems. Lexmark is a good name quality all in one. But, I believe it's time to upgrade. These rollers and drums are very easily put out of sync. And from there on you'll have nothing but troubles. The scanner situation is probably forming a very light coat of rust on the out rail and causing it to hang up. I honestly wouldn't put much more money or stress(your own) into this machine. Thanks, Dana.

Clicks and In Use/Memory Button is flashing


You have the phone line plugged into the wrong jack on the machine. The line from the wall should plug into the jack labeled "L". The other jack is for a telephone or answering machine.

How can i fix this problem ??


Turn the transfer belt by hand to check for any binding or noises. It could also be the fuser rollers causing the noise due to bad bearings since it sits above the transfer belt when it it closed into the machine.

Do you know how to remove the transfer belt to check?
