Question about Samsung CLP 300 Laser Printer
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!

This also applies to Samsung CLX-2160. After cleaning blades and reassembling I got that loud clicking noise. The black toner cartridge wouldn't go all the way in. A little persuasion was used to push it in further and the noise stopped.

This can help too by knocking on the black toner on the floor and turn the black tomer gear and place it back. this sometime is course by the toner gear jam. usally this will sole the clicking sound.

You need to use fesh toner, or could LPT ports setting from your BIOS of your computer is not proper as per the requirement.
