Question about Lexmark X2600 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper gets crumpled and wrinkled and won't feed.

I just hooked up my Lexmark x2600 printer and now everytime I try to print something, the paper gets fed into the printer about a quarter of the way, then the printer just wrinkles it and crumples it up and stops feeding it.
The paper is straight and the printer is on a level surface and that is all that the manual told me to do in order to get it to work again but it is still not working.

My Lexmark printer 2600 series won't print. It pulls the paper towards the right but won't feed it. How can I fix this?


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a Lexmark x2600 printer and when I stated printing many pieces went through and then jammed and won't move in either direction, the paper is really jammed in and I don't see any way to get...


Unplug the printer from the power source to turn it off. Open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. If you see the paper jam, slowly and carefully pull the paper out of the printer. Avoid tearing the paper or avoid leaving torn pieces in the printer. This will cause future paper jams in the printer.

When all is clear, re-plug the printer into the power source. Load some paper and try to print again.
Tips: Use only paper that is in good condition. Fan the paper before loading into the feeder to prevent sticking together. Use the specified media type and sizes for your model. Don't overload the feeder.

Lexmark 2600 wont feed paper. It gets a quarter of the way through then crumples up.


Hello

Just like any printer brand through time some mechanical parts will need maintenance.

Just open the printer's cover and locate the paper feeder roller. Get a clean damp cotton bud and clean the roller's rubber. Through time it accumulates dirt affecting its traction.

if the paper is crumpling up then something is stopping the paper from moving check the paper path for obstructions. if your first set of feed roller are moving and the second set is not then this will happen also

Everytime I tried to print the paper get jam


Make sure all surfaces are clean and your paper has static electricity removed. you can do this by fanning it over a grounded surface. Check the paper feed rollers to be sure they are clean and have no sticky areas. Be sure no to put too many pages in at a time. Try one page at at time first to test and see if all goes well then proceed to try several sheets, about 10 or 12.

Printer wont feed paper says out of paper


you "may" have something stuck on one of the feed rollers - a ripped piece of paper or something. See if you can examine the rollers, and look very carefully, particularly on the side that the paper keeps jamming.

In all honesty though, printers are pretty disposable these days. They're not worth getting fixed, and if you can't do quick maintenance on them, getting a new one is your best solution.

Pull the tray out at the bottom of the printer. This is causing the printer to think it has a paper jam. It is simply the paper feed button.

Paper jam


If it is getting crumpled in the tray, there is something blocking the paper path.
What I would suggest is taking out the toner and drum cartridge, then remove the paper tray. Tip the machine on it's back and look into the paper feed area for something blocking the paper path.
When it is crumpling the paper like that, the feeder is working fine, just something blocking the paper path.
You can take a minela folder, and gently push it through the paper path to dislodge the obstruction.
