Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer
Samsung SCX-4521F Possibly lost its power? When I plug it in, it ''ticks'' I have tried another power outlet, another power cord, but continues to tick away. The LCD screen is garbled up - no lights on the front panel.
If it just make tick sounds, but does not power up and does not do its normal startup, it probally the power supply board on this printer has failed. This printer like most modern electrical appliances has a switching power supply. The ticking sound is the power supply trying to start, but it senses a fault and shuts down and tries to restart.
I had a similar problem with my printer, though it not the same model (CLX-3160) but the same manufacturer Samsung. I took mine appart and found that one of the capacitors on the power supply had failed. It was blown and the top of the capacitor popped open. I am not saying this is your problem but it would be the first thing I would check if you want to get this fixed. Otherwise, look for a new printer.
Hope this helps.

The power board is faulty, check the replacement, the product number should be JC44-00102A , there are many suppliers in internet. You must disconnect the printer, disassemble the back cover, remove some screw and replace the board, not much difficult but requires some attention.
