Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams


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.

HP printers frequently time how long a page takes to run through the machine. If it is too slow, they signal a jam error.

Try cleaning all the rollers and pinch wheels etc within the laser.

Minolta 2530DL. This piece of junk has another


Thank you for your kind reply.
I'm not going by the readout - but by the fact that bits of paper get stuck under one or two of the final feed rocker/rollers,,,, and are a bu@@er to get out.
Kinolta Customer Service - AND MANAGEMENT - are aware of just how badly designed this paper feed system is, but will do nothing about it.
I have had to virtually strip this piece of carp down, just to give me a little more access,,,, even then, its more than a struggle.
Thanks again.

PRINTER SAYS PAPER JAM, THERE IS NO JAM, IS THE SENSOR STUCK? WHAT TO DO TO FIX IT?


this machine is fun, in the back of the machine you may want to blow out with air, do this spairingly, if loose toner is around, it will blow all over. so you might want to do outside, the rear cover does come off, and the feed section does come off. if you feel your technical enough take this area off and blow out, and clean feed rollers

Printer will not print...it jammed ......the paper jammed in the machine..and I pulled it out....


1. Inspect the paper trays to make sure they are not overloaded. To determine if this is the problem, do a test print with only one piece of paper loaded in the paper tray. (If this turns out to be the problem, keep the paper tray half-full in the future.)
2. Check that the type of paper being used falls within the printer manufacturer's recommendations. For example, paper designed for ink-jet printers doesn't necessarily work well in laser printers. High-quality, bonded paper will cause paper jams in some printers; look for bonded paper that is "laser and ink-jet compatible."
3. If someone has recently printed labels on this printer, check to see if a label has come unglued from a sheet and become stuck inside the printer.
4. Check the gears and rollers for stuck shreds of torn paper from previous jams. Turn off the printer before you attempt to remove the bits of paper.f you have a laser printermag-glass_10x10.gif, inspect the printer's paper rollers. They should be smooth but not shiny. Rollers that are cracked or glazed are a frequent cause of paper jams and should be replaced by a technician.
5. if you have a laser printer, try cleaning the printer's paper rollers with a lint-free cloth and isopropyl alcohol (available atelectronics shops or drugstore.Try changing the toner or ink cartridge.

Paper not coming through getting stuck on right hand side (top loading)


3 main causes of paper getting stuck

If the paper is getting damaged (Crinkling) then there is an obstruction, if you have had a paper jam a paper was torn as you removed it then try looking for the torn peice of paper other wise see if you can see anything in the paper path
Sensor failure, there is a line of sensors along the paper path which report back to the printer that the paper is moving at the correct speed and is in the correcty location when it should be, if one of these fails then the printer will decide that there is a problem and abort the printing, often but not always a shut down, unplug and wait a couple minutes for risidual power to completely drain before plugging back in and powering up as this will solve this problem as it resets the sensors in the printer
The rollers are not moving the paper fast enough, this may be caused by incompatiple paper try a different paper, damp/poorly stored paper try a completely different paper source, roller slipage due to ware or a build up of paper dust - if you can see any of the rollers try wiping them with a damp cloth or possible a bit of wire wool followed by a damp cloth

Toshiba 2060 jams (accordion/fans the paper) at the fuser unit. Torn Paper now stuck next to the roller/drum and now jams every time. How do I remove the torn bits of paper to keep it from jamming?


sounds like a broken fuser drive gear.The fuser operates a nearly 400 degrees Fahrenheit and the drive gear cracks and falls off.Lots of trouble for a 50 cent gear.They are mad of fiber or plastic.take a few of the covers off near the fuser and disconnect the cables and the fuser slides out

Paper jam in 1120 hp printer


Hi there, Try printing again using heavier paper. Board types will likely push the torn papers out. Hope this solves your problem.
