A grinding noise when using the scanner glass or flatbed to make a copy or scan a document is typically due to a mechanical malfunction of the scanner assembly. However, it may be the result of debris or objects interfering with the travel of the print head.
A clicking sound may occur if the stirring spring assembly inside the Toner Cartridge catches on a rib within the cartridge, preventing the stirring spring and its gear from turning. The resulting click is caused by the drum`s toner drive gear slipping against the stirring spring gear on the Toner Cartridge.
NOTE: If the paper guide is too tight against the rear edge of the paper stack, the machine may make a loud clicking noise since the gears that drive the tray up may be binding. Be sure to leave a very small gap at the rear edge of the paper stack before locking the tab.
How to do a hard reset on your printer. With the cartridges still installed, power down the printer and then unplug the power cord from the wall. Wait for a minute, then plug the printer back in and power it back up. Wait for the cartridges to center and then try printing again.
Turn the product on while you press and hold the Resume button for 10-20 seconds. The Attention light turns on. Release the Resume button. The Attention and Ready lights cycle while the product restores factory defaults.
A click is a unit of measurement the imaging industry uses to count an image produced by an MFP or other printing device.
Possible causes

This noise can be due to any one of the following: A piece of paper, or other obstruction, is stuck somewhere inside the printer. One of the toner cartridges or photo developer units may be installed incorrectly or may be damaged. A door or cover may not be closed completely.

HP Click is an easy-to-use job-submittal tool designed for people with low-volume printing needs, who want to print reliably. Ideal for a broad range of graphics and technical applications including posters, roll-up banners, info-graphic presentations, maps, and CAD documents.

A clicking (grinding) sound coming from the scanner is caused by the scanner head drive belt slipping, most likely because it cannot find it`s index position (or home position). Failure to find it`s index position (IP) causes the scanner head to eventually hit something solid causing the belt to slip (grind, grind).

HP Photosmart 8750 intermittent serv. stat. stuck
ANSWER : I had this error after the printer sat idle for many months. I thought it was the cartridge drive belt stretching, because it was extremely loose and wouldn’t move the carriage due to slippage. Then I noticed there was a gear belt tensioner to the right side that had some movement. Sure enough, when I shined a flashlight into the ink reservoir, there was a spring that had fallen down inside. Looking at the plastic belt tensioner, it looks as if the spring was held on by a plastic post that had broken off. This is most likely the cause of many of these errors, because the plastic break is very clean and not readily visible, (a design flaw in my opinion). Rather than trying to replace the part, I am going to try tapping a hole in the plastic and inserting a machine screw that can hold the tension spring in place. It also looks like the metal notch for the right hand loop of the spring, would not prevent the spring from slipping off at some point, so using a metal file to enlarge the notch may be necessary. If you’re lucky, your spring may have just popped off and is inside the ink reservoir. This may be one reason why the printer was discontinued so soon. One lousy five dollar part makes the whole printer worthless… I use this this printer primarily because it is easy to clean the heads by removing the carts, instead of having to disassemble the whole damn thing, as in ink tank designs. It makes beautiful 13×19 prints with better color accuracy than my Vivera 6 ink printer.
