Use only recommended paper. Paper must be straight and low moisture content. Moisture can cause such problems.
If the problem remains then I ask whether your printer is new or dismantled for repairs?

Problem w/printing

Try this first:

Turn off the printer and unplug it. Open the paper jam door and give the paper roller a gentle push forward until it clicks. This is a simple reset of the paper feed. Close the door, plug your printer back in and turn it on.
I hope this works for you. If it does not we may need to reinstall the driver. Please let me know. Thanks!

Lexmark X73 print/paper problem

Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.

Unable to print properly keeps printing on one line

Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
