A noise inside your printer is usually the result of a carriage jam or paper jam. The carriage keeps your cartridges secure inside your printer and it should move freely inside the machine to produce a print. If it not functioning properly it could be locked and make a clicking sound. To resolve this, gently try to manually move the carriage to center to get the carriage to move freely again. If you are not able to get the carriage to move, consult your printer manufacturer for further support as printer model specific troubleshooting may be required. If you suspect that the clicking noise could be due to a paper jam, inspect the paper feeder for any paper obstructions. If you do find paper stuck inside the printer, gently pull it out of the printer to remove it.
