The unit sounds as though it's "trying" to release a latch; slight whiring noise, a half dozen or so quiet "clicks", then nothing. The disk is full and finalized, I presume. But it won't come out....:( help? is there a manually release for the cover somewhere? I tried gently prying when it's trying to open, but no luck. I don't want to damage any further. Out of warranty, sadly.

Canon toner type GPR-6, correct? Open the front cover. Rotate lever to release toner/developer unit. Pull the unit straight out until it stops. Insert new cartridge to line up with top of toner/developer unit at a slight angle (lower at back) Once the cartridge stops at the rear (I would hold the toner/developer unit with one hand while inserting the cartridge) then lower the front end of toner cartridge down on top of the unit.....press down until toner cart. clicks into place. You will know because a tab pops out the front with clear plastic attatched. Pull the tab to release toner and release top of toner/dev. unit. Keep pulling until it stops. Wait about 7 seconds, now tap on toner cartridge to release all loose toner (don't forget to shake toner before opening) After about 15 seconds, toner should be fully loaded. Now push top cover of toner/developer unit back in until it latches, you will know because the empty cartridge releases from the unit. Now remove empty cartridge, reinsert unit, turn latch handle and close front cover.
continuous clicking could be a few gear-related issues:
-if the pinion gear is slipping against the rack for the disc-load mechanism, you can try to re-align the rack (hopefully it was just forced out of place and can be clicked back). i would suspect this if the noise is relatively quiet and very fast.
-if something is jamming the load mechanism, like the rack is stuck, the pinion gear may be clicking over the teeth of the rack. i would suspect this if the noise is loud and slower.
Either way, you'd probably need to open the console. )=.
