SAMSUNG CLP 300 CLICKING NOISE

 

If you have a Samsung CLP 300 printer and on power up it makes a constant clicking noise, a rapid click click click this is what it could be....

It is probably the power supply


UNPLUG IT

Remove the top

Remove the right hand side (it unclips from the bottom)

put it back the right way up and plug it back in

Turn it on, there is a motor on the right hand side, is it trying to turn but stopping? Good.

UNPLUG IT

Turn the motor by hand, is everything turning OK? Good

Your power supply has gone, either buy a new one, or better still a second hand one from a machine being scrapped OR in my case it was two 16v 1000uf capacitors that had gone, if I looked at the top of them they had gone slightly "dome topped", changed those (cost pennies) and I was away.

 

Helpful???...... then pay up
