On starup my Dell v505 printer moves the scanner to the right and then back to the left again. once it cannot go any farther the belt starts skipping and making a very loud clicking sound and it continues until i turn it off. i cannot get to the main menu or anything.
Have you tried cleaning the rollers at the back of the printer or there might be a paper or other objects that got caught in the printer. These things can result in a clicking sound. If you are starting to feel hopeless, it would be better if you will consider the help of printer repair specialists.
