Fix repeated paper jams on Lexmark 901 Pro


If you are getting a jam and there is no paper visible then a likely cause is a false jam that is caused when the paper is not picked up from the tray at the start of printing. Send a print job and listen closely. If you can hear the pickup rollers turning but no paper is being pulled into the printer then either the rollers are dirty or are worn and need to be replaced. Trying printing from a different tray or the manual feed tray to eliminate a fault with a different component on the printer.

Lexmark printer wont print


Leading cause of paper jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach 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 carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I've got a 4 by 6 photo paper jam in my Lexmark S405 all-in-one printer.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Try to reach for the paper jam.

3. If paper jam can't be reached, open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. You may be able to get a better hold of the paper jam in the cartridge area.

4. Remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave any torn piece of paper in the printer.



When paper jam is clear, 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 X2690 that came with my PC (HP Pavilion Labtop) in July 2008. I hardly use it, but, when I do, I am always unable to print, most likely due to one or more of the following errors that I...


The light indicates either a paper jam or a problem with your cartridges (probably due to low ink or faulty). To identify and fix this issue, please follow the steps below:
  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 feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  4. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.
  5. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.
  6. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.
  7. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.
  8. Close the printer cover and check for any errors.
  9. If no error appears, reinsert the other cartridge. Close the printer cover.
  10. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear with a new cartridge.
  11. If there's no indication of any problem, try to print a document again.
If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

EC1 error message indicates that your printer having trouble recognizing one of your cartridges. You could try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Remove and reinsert both cartridges. You may also wipe the cartridge nozzles with a damp paper towel to clean it from dirts and clogs. If error continues, check w/c cartridge is causing the error. Insert one cartridge first, then close the cover. If no error appears, then insert the other cartridge. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the error to appear.

I go to print something and the printer sucks the paper in real fast and it crumbles in there and it gets jammed. it is brand new, but i cannot take it back to the store b-cuz it had been too long


Remove all cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the power supply from the printer (it's the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached). Wait for at least 10-15 seconds before plugging back the power supply in the printer. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Try again. If problem persists, since printer is fairly new, I advise you to contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

My printer is eating my paper and it wont print. It seems like my paper is getting jammed inside and then I have to yank it back out.


on the back side of the printer is a door to access the jammed paper check out if any of the paper piece is got there already jammed and due to this other papers passing through that area are getting jammed.if that area is clear then its gear problem which pulls the paper
There are rollers that cling on to the paper and move it through the machine. When the rollers are worn down they do not grip the paper. For a short fix you can get something rough like sandpaper, brillo pad, etc, and gently scratch the rollers to give them some traction. This will temporarily solve your problem until you can get the rollers replaced.
thanks

Lexmark P6250 paper Jam


Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others

Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now
