The problem is with the paper sesor in the paper tray. It must
be under the tray lift mechanism.
This is located in the right front part of the paper tray.

I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.


Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

Lexmark E232, keeps telling me paper tray is empty even though it has paper in the tray, then it just keeps clicking instead of picking up the paper and feeding into the printer? Please help


Go the Lexmark website and search on support for their telephone number. I've always had a experience with their support team even if the printer is out of warranty.

Printer keeps saying that we are out of paper even though photo paper is in and glossy side is down. Can't figure out why it isn't sensing that the paper is there.


Go into printers and faxes, right click on your HP PHotosmart printer, click on properties, in the general tab click on printer preferences, on the advanced tab make sure the paper type is Automatic so the printer will acknowledge any type paper put into the tray.

This may allow the printer to see your photopaper. Also try to remove the paper completely and put it back in the tray, make sure the paper is pushed all the way to the front of the tray.

Let me know if this answer is helpful. Let me know if you have any other specific questions, if so, add as much detail to the problem as possible.

Thank You,


Brian

I cant get the machine to grab the paper and it says its out of paper, yet its not out of paper.


Hi, the Ip3000 has 3 different feeding trays...
make sure that the printer is trying to "grab" the paper in the tray that you have chosen to use in the printer properties box...
when you give the print command can you see the rubber roller moving to grab the paper in the top feeder tray???
if the roller that feeds the printer is not moving you may have accidentally changed the settings to grab paper from the bottom tray...the one right under the door that opens to let printed pages out of the printer...
the 3rd feeder tray is the DVD/CD printing tray...
I suggest that you look at the printer Properties for remedial action...
hope this helps you with your problem...
cheers
haitchhcee
p.s.
suggest you place paper in the bottom tray before making adjustments to see if it is trying to grab the paper from there...

Mp780 - Paper attempts to feed and fails Message: Load paper


Your paper feed source is wrong .Go to the printers control panel and change the feed source.
If all you do is 8.5X11 you can go into the maintenance tab and choose it to automatically change paper trays by selectin auto continuous feed.Make sure paper is in both trays of the same type and size.You will hear the printer try and grab the paper three times then it will automatically switch to the next tray.

Be sure the paper tray is full.  Though not a satisfactory solution, I've found the little steel tab that lifts the paper up to be grabbed by the roller just doesn't lift it far enough.  I keep the paper tray full.  Now I only have the problem if I let the tray get down to only one or two sheets.
