Paper jam message x4600 printer will not allow work

Posted by on

  • mizliv Dec 17, 2008

    My daughter bought this printer in October when she started college. She printed about seven sheets and it jammed. We have never been able to get the printer to work since. No paper is trapped. We have taken out the cartridges and put them back. We have unplugged the printer. Nothing works. It also won't do any other function include turn off (unless you unplug it) and it won't scan. The window stays with the message Lexmark 3500-4500 series, touching any button gets no response whatsoever. We have pretty much given it up and written it off as a big mistake. We have been to their customer support site but they don't describe any of these problems.

Paper jam


  1. Take the paper out of the paper trays. This will prevent any more paper from being drawn into the printer to further the jam.
  2. Remove the cover from the housing of your Lexmark printer. This will expose the inner workings of the printer, and you also should be able to see the jammed paper.
  3. Pull gently on the jammed paper. In many cases this is all that is required; the paper jam should move out slowly and smoothly.
  4. Press the flashing paper jam button. This will allow the rotors to turn freely, which will facilitate the easy removal of the jam.
  5. Unplug your Lexmark printer if the jam persists. This will allow you to pull more firmly without the gears working against you.
  6. Examine the inner workings and confirm that all paper and shreds of paper have been removed. If the paper tore during the clearing, make sure none remains or it will inhibit normal printer function.
  7. Plug the printer back in, refill the paper tray and try to print again.
Thank you.

ESP5200printer,new,paper jam message


Hi slicknick58,

Paper jam message occurs when there are stuck papers inside the printer. There are several ways on how to correct this problem, either you remove the visible stuck paper manually or replace the toner or ink cartridge. Below are the steps you'll want to follow when this problem still occurs.

1. Turn off the printer. Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam.

2. Inspect the location or tray the printed paper ejects to. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.

3. Open the printer door that allows you access to the printer ink cartridges or toner and look for any stuck paper. If the stuck paper is visible manually remove it.

4. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it.

5. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.

6. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper . Don't force anything.

7. Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.

8. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path and try repeating the above steps again.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Printer will not completely feed through the printer


There could be something that's blocking the paper path. This article in the Lexmark website on Paper Jam and Misfeed Troubleshooting in the Lexmark X3500, X4500, X4600 & X4800 Series All-In-One might help fix the problem.

Kodak 5300 AiO Printer will not work due to paper jam


Looks like the sensor for paper jam is causing you problems.
Worst thing is that Kodak discontinued the whole 5xxx series because of all the problems those printers had.

I don't know if you will be able to fix the problem through Kodak support, I guess you will have to give them a call.

Good luck,

Milan

Paper jam message, but actually no paper jam


  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper jam message on Magicolor 2300W


How do you clean the rubber rollers, hope you didnt use solvent....
Use dry cloth with dishwashing fluid only to wipe the rollers.  You will notice the increase in grip immediately.

Paper jam error message


I had the same problem, and found that the sheet feeder mechanism was intermittent. The problem seems to be that the lubricating grease inside the mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it) becomes too slippery with age, and stops picking up the activating arm which allows the cam unit to move to kick the top sheet of paper into the rubber feed wheel.
The repair was extremely difficult because it involved taking most of the printer apart to get to the ink pump/sheet feeder mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it). And then I tried quite a few lubricants (including no lubricant at all) but none of these worked reliably. Finally I tried a dab of automotive wheel bearing grease (it feels like glue), and this worked perfectly. I have had no more paper jam errors and no miss-feeds in about 7months of everyday use.
