Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The paper jams everytime I try to print. it tends to pull to the right, and wont go all the way through. what could be causing this problem and hiw can I fix it? I inspected everything and tried sliding an envelope through and nothing works. This morning it printed one page and then jammed again. HELP!! Iris email@example.com
I also did the shaking. It did not work the first two times, but the third time I shook it more aggressively. I did not see anything pop out or drop out, but it did fix the problem. mbyers

I took one of your readers advice, unplugged the printer, turned it upside down and shook it.
Out popped a push pin and my problem was solved.
Thanks a lot for your help.

I bet that there is still some paper or something else stuck in the lower back portion of the printer. This section appears to be inaccessible to non-techie humans (us!). One person said that turning the machine upside down and shaking forced to piece of plastic to drop out and that solved the problem. You might check with a flashlight to see if you see any paper visible deep down inside and perhaps prod it or cut it with a long knife and shake it to get the pieces to come out. Sorry that i can't provide a more elegant solution.

Tips for a great answer:

jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed
