I had this problem with the same printer and it turns out that some how a screw had dropped in the paper feed. Try feeding an envelope through, left side, right side and center and see if that jams up anywhere. Or just unplug it, turn upside down and shake it. thats what finally worked for me.

I have a lexmark x85 printer that is misbehaving. Weather I try to copy or print from the computer,t will not feed properly. The unit feeds about half way and then the printer heads start to move as if it...


You simply need to find a way to clean the inside of the printer, especially the rollers of dust. I will explain.

This is sort of scenario is usually caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. Sometime one side grips well and tries to pick the paper while the other doesn't resulting in a jammed. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

Symbol lit up but don't know what symbol means, I don't have manuel - begins with 2 dots :


The symbol with the 2 dots and what looks like a jagged line is the paper jam indicator. Open the paper tray and or front and back access doors to find and remove the paper jam. I the light still does not clear try turning the printer off then on to reset the jam indication.

Lexmark 7675 paper jam


> feeds unevenly

Usually, there are two, maybe three, rollers that should _evenly_ pull the paper through the path.
Check that each roller is making good contact with the paper.

> out of paper error-message

There's a small sensor, and usually a "finger" that rises when the weight of the paper is not sufficient to hold the finger down. Check for "dust" clogging/blocking this finger.

If all else fails, it's time to take the printer to a qualified technician, for a professional cleaning & tune-up.

Lexmark X5400 Series AIO Feed Problems


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Thanks, Anu

HP Photosmart C6280 Will not feed paper correctly


Please onsult this HP support article and follow the steps outlined there to clean the rollers, etc. Frequently this roller cleaning and possibly a reset is all that's required to clear the jam error. (If you have access to compressed air, you can gently blow air throught the printer to clear out paper dust and debris from inside.
Also be sure to follow the instructions in the manual or here to load the paper correctly, fan sheets before loading, and if the problem continues, try flipping the stack of loaded paper upside down and reloading, or try another kind of paper..

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Hi,
Sounds like the feed rollers need cleaning.
Clean the feed rollers, lint free cloth,bottled water.
wait for them to properly dry

Revolve the feed roller bar as you clean them, to clean the feed rollers all the way round, remove all particles from them.

Check you ADF grips are set correctly, if not you will get mis-fed sheets. check the tray is sat properly too or mis-feeds.

Check paper size is correct in print properties too.
Should be good then
Try print.

Regards
Richard.

Lexmark 1185 - paper feed problem


You may be missing a very small jam. Use a torch and tweezers, check down the back, also open cover, check even where you think paper wouldn't jam. Especially in teeth, rollers. Look for foreign debris as well as paper. Also, turn off, unlplug all cables/usb etc and replug, turn on. Finally, never load more than about 20 fine sheets at a time, reset printer settings to default. As a last resort, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer.
