Re: when i try to print anything, i get a message 241...
This is most likely to be worn pick up rollers. these are the two rubber wheels that you can see underneath the printer when you remove the tray. you should be able to source these from a local suplier and are very easy to fit. just make sure your gentle with the clip that holds them in place as if they break then you will need to buy a whole new pick up assembaly which is significantly more expensive.

Lexmark T630 241 paper jam message- Indicates a paper jam from the pull down manual feed tray.
If you check to make sure and small fragments of paper are not hindering the operation of the switch.The switch is located on the left side of the tray and will be spring loaded.The switch should move freely without binding. Make sure no toner or dust is on the optical sensor assembly. See Diagram for location.
If the switch seems OK and the printer still reports an error, the printer will require professional care.
Some print media, although they may conform to size and weight specifications, may not perform to your expectations. Print quality, jam rates, fuser life, and output stacking can be affected by the printing environment (temperature and humidity) and characteristics of the paper (structure, moisture content, smoothness or thickness);
Duplex printing is not supporteD
Using Auxiliary tray is recommended
I have a Lexmark C510 colour printer: Manufacture date June 2005.
I had been getting the "Paper Jam 241 error in Tray 1" message for some time. Sometimes it would print just fine but in the past several months, it's been bad. I'd pull the tray out (notice roller marks on the top sheet that was only partially fed), reinserted the sheet properly into the tray and try again and again. The techy at Lexmark mentioned that I could purchase a new rubber roller that feeds the sheet but that I might first wipe down the roller myself as they get worn and old. I first wiped it down with a damp cloth to clean it then thought to try reconditioning it with leather conditioner we'd purchased for our couch (I'm sure Amourall would work just as well). Voila, the old, dry roller was picking up paper again. Just open the rear door and that grey roller (it's black again when you recondition it) is at the bottom. Hope that helps.
I'll bet that if you put a mark on the top sheet of paper in tray one and then send a print job or run a self test you will see that the paper stays in tray one. I suspect that you have a paper pick problem.
Worn or slick rollers can be one source or a weak tray supports. Also, take the paper out of tray one and fan the paper to break any static that may cause the paper to stick together.
Check the paper tray guides, check the the paper feed roller (remove the tray and look up in the printer) it is possibly worn and needs replacing, you can try to clean it (hand soap is as good as anything)
Once you have done this, reinstall the paper tray and try printing again. Note:
You may receive a message informing you that another sheet of paper is
jammed elsewhere in the printer. If so, please open the front door and
remove the toner cartridge. Also open the rear door of the printer (and
the duplex option if a duplex unit is installed). Remove any and all
jammed sheets of paper you find. Then try printing again.
If the printer jams again with a 241 PaperJam error message, look to see if it has tried to feed a sheet of paper out of the tray.
What happens is that the rubber roller that's supposed to pick paper up and load it in doesn't pull the paper from the tray anymore, hence it gives the paper jam error message. If you want you can replace that rubber roller to fix the problem, however first thing I do is to take that rubber roller out (remove tray and look underneath to find the roller) and turn it inside out then fit it back. This will give the rubber roller the grip that it missed and solve your problem.
