1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Error message on printer: It says to clear the carrier jam; what is a carrier jam? How do I clear it?

Make sure the paper is out where it was jammed. Unplug the printer from the wall for thirty seconds and plug it back in.

Lexmark P6250 not working.

What seems to be happennig is the home position sensor has an error.
Look at the back of the cartridge folder and you should see a piece of mylar.It may be missing or it has ink or grease on it.
if it is grease take a isopropry pad and wipe it down very carefully.
If not look for a piece of clear mylar appr.11 inches long by 5/16 in. and re-attach

Carrier jam

Is it a clear plastric strip with little black lines through it?

If so that is your encoder strip, it is how the printer knows where the head is. If it's broken it needs to be replaced. If it just came out of it's holder you may be able to put it back into place. Sounds like it snapped, not good.
