Frances;
I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
Note:
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

Lexmark s605 paper jamming


Sounds like an obstruction on the right hand side of the feed mechanism. All-in-ones are a pig to find these - I've had one HP almost completely stripped before I found a chad of plastic stuck in a corner. Nine times out of ten it's a torn corner of the first bit of paper to get chewed jammed in the feed slot.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

Have lexmark 1200 series will not feed paper i


turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper. although you did this, there might be a small particle hanging you up. I have experienced this before. see if both sides have cogs that catch the roller, one might be offset?

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Hi, i have a lexmark x4550. The pick up roller (the roller that grabs the paper and feeds it into the printer to get printed on), is not working, at least one of them isnt (there are two i think,,, but on...


Try the following: take an A4 sheet of paper and glue a 2 - inch strip of sanding paper onto the top of the sheet (full width of the page). sanding paper should be about 120 grain.
Now feed the page with the sand paper first (rough surface on top) into the paper inlet. grab and hold the paper, then press paper feed or send a print job. The printer tries to feed you special sheet, but you won't let go. This will sand off the gunk from you feed rollers and give a bit of rough surface to the rubber. Repeat if needed, it should cure the problem.
This works if the problem is the roller surface, it will not fix a problem with misalignment or a missing/broken spring in the feed roller mechanism.
regards, the perfessa

Paper jam in the lexmark x4550


If you know someone who is handy with this kind of stuff, you should get them to open the printer up and remove the paper. You could also try to just send sheets of paper through to see if they can dislodge it (but that may cause paper jams as well).

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
