Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper pull only from the right side

When I try to print the printer pulls the paper only from the right side and not the left, so I get the "Paper Jam" message on the screen when the paper hasn't even totally left the tray yet. I'm wondering if this is because the paper may be to thin, but its been working fine for the past 2 months. I use Xerox Business Recycled Paper, 20 lb., 92 bright, 8.5x11 - 3R6296 paper. Any ideas?

    Yes my X4270 started doing the same thing. Pulling only on the right and then jamming. I have had this printer for 18 months and no problem at all until today. I have went by Lexmarks instructions on proper paper loading procedures and I have looked inside for scrap paper or trash and it is clean.offgrid.

Take a look as it is grabbing the paper
1- either there is someting blocking the path or
2- the tires need to be changed, not grabbing the paper but instead it is slipping.

MP150 paper feed not working on left hand side

Every time I try to print something, the paper doesn't pull from the tray straight. It pulls to the left side and crumples the sheet of paper so that it can't feed through the printer.


You do not state the type of printer so it is difficult to give exact instructions, but I know what your problem is. Something is stuck in the paper path on the right hand side, hence the reason is skews to the left because the left side is able to advance and the right is hitting the obstacle. If your printer has a paper drawer, turn off the power, remove all cords and the cartridge. Pull out the paper drawer and then carefully stand the printer on it's back so that you can see where the paper goes as it comes out of the tray. You will likely find your problem right there. If you can repost with an actual model I can give you a much better idea of how to find a paper jam but these instructions should help you.

Printer pulls paper to right side jams does not print


usually this indicates some foreign object on the opposite side where the paper goes in. Please check to see if you have some small pieces of paper or something else in the paper path area.

also, another possibility is that your pickup roller is missing, dirty or damaged. try cleaning it too.

thanks adi

When I try to print only one side of the paper is pulled down


Probably you have a object which blocks paper from left side on feeder.Look carefully using flashlight in the feeder.If you don't see anything the printer must be disassembled.

How do I fix a paper jam? I've got paper jam around the exit roller and I can't get it out?


There should be a way to unlock one of the sides. Try taking out the toner cartridge and going in that way. If you can see the paper, get a pair of needle nose pliers and SLOWLY see if you can pull the paper out.

Paper wont feed propaly


It sounds like the motor on the left side went out. If it's a brand new printer your best bet would probably be exchange it at the store or see if the manufaturer has a warrenty. If it's an older printer I probably wouldn't try to get it repaired, printers are getting cheaper these days and it probably wouldn't be much more to get a new one.

Printer will only pull the paper in from one side.


Hi !!
Usually this problem happens if there is something wrong with paper feed rollers which is inside the printer .

But to fix teh problem you can try this ---

take out ink cartridges, all the cables, power adapter (black rectangular box at the back) and papers from the paper feeder . Then take the printer in your hands, keep it like upside down and shake it for a while .Then keep it back in its position

Afetr 10-15 mins , install cartridges, cables, power adapter and just 1 sheet of paper on the printer . try to print somethg if still it dows same thg then it means that This is a time to buy a new printer on this christmas !!

Epson Stylus CX4600 pulling paper in crooked


Hi, please check if there is a paper jam or any obstruction inside that printer. Check also the platen lever or the left edge guide, make sure that paper is loaded correctly. Try printing again. If issue still present. Your printer needs to be send to service center.

You may have a jam insude the unit. Open it up as if you are replacing cartridge, check everywhere for a tiny paper jam, with a torch, near roller, carriage etc. good luck xxx lilacgerry
