Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will assist you today!
What makes the clicking noise. The printer , or the mac?
Also, can you check what version of Mac osx you have Ed, as mentioned below.
Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.
Thank you,
Dustin S.
