Question about Lexmark Color JetPrinter Z52 InkJet
My Lexmark Z52 won't feed paper. The feeder spins, but it won't grab the paper and move it until I push each sheet about an inch down and then it grabs. I cant tell if the texture of the wheel that spins against the paper has become too smooth, or maybe it's not pressing firmly enough against the paper, like maybe a spring is no longer tight enough. I am determined this this is not going to hit the landfill! Are feeders easy to replace? If so, where would I get one for my not-brand-new printer?
You can try to clean it by using a blower maybe there are some debris stuck on the paper feeder assembly. But if its evident that the rubber of the paper feeder is worn out already then probably needs a replacement. but this parts are sold as one assembly it might cost you a lot.

One common cause of paper feed issues is a build up of dust on the printer's
rear paper feed roller. This roller consists of a plastic axle white roller.
This is located in the automatic sheet feeder and is referred to as the "Pick
Roller." As dust builds up on the rubber rollers, they become less tacky and
therefore unable to grab a single sheet of paper.
To prevent and/or cure this type of paper feed problem, these rubber rollers should be cleaned.
Unplug the printer's power cord and remove the paper from the automatic sheet feeder. Please remove the paper access door from back of the printer and clean the white rollers inside with a cloth dampened with warm water (be sure there is no excess water on the cloth as it may drip into the machine). After these are free of any dust, close the paper access door. Reload the paper and plug the power cord back in. The paper should then feed normally.
Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:
1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press the down arrow button till the screen displays “Maintenance". .
3. Press the "Check" button.
4. Press the "Down arrow" button till the screen displays “Print Test Page.”
5. Press the "Check" button.
The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed by itself. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.
If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.
If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Well I don't think you are going to be able to find replacement parts for it. But what you can do is try the following. Turn off the printer, unplug the power cord, remove any paper that you may have in the feeder now pick up the printer and flip it upside down. Be careful with the scanner lid but sometimes what happens is that things will get inside the printer blocking the paper path. That will cause the printer not to pick up the paper most of the time.

Lift the ADF cover and clean the rollers with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease

Testimonial: "After cleaning w/ the soap/alcohol mixture the paper still jammed. I gently pushed the paper through the rollers manually & removed a jammed sticker."
