1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Error 241.1 Paper Jam. I have reseated the tray


Brand New T652n lexmark printer get a paper jam every time! just opened and haven't been able to print one paper. Doesn't matter if you print from tray one or tray two. It gets stuck right after the rollers pick it up and try to send it to the toner. Any suggestions? I've tried to reseat the toner, plain paper, sized the paper correctly, I've tried just about everything I can think of! I can feed paper manually through the top tray, and it will print. But, just using the manual tray defeats the purpose of the other two trays. Anyone else having this issue?

Lexmark X5490 paper will not feed rollers seem to slip. will work if you help the paper into the printer.


Sounds like the feed rollers are dirty. Use a mild detergent or soapy water and a clean cloth and clean the rubber rollers that turn to feed in the paper.
Do not use alcohol this could dry out and shorten the life of the rollers.

Paper jams no matter what stock I use; Lexmark e232


Slipping paper feed rollers is probably causing the jamming. Remove the paper tray and tip the machine back so that you can access the feed rollers from underneath. A good technique to isolate this problem is to remove the rubber feed tires, turn them inside-out and refit them. If it now works OK you need to get new feed rollers.

Lexmark x5490 paper jam


MORNING EVERYONE!!!

well at last managed to retrieve the paper jam. I had to remove the paper feeder then using long thin tweezers, i was able to carefully encourage the paper to come out but you have to be really careful not to damage the rollers.

Can't understand why there isn't an easier way. ie have easy access to the back or lift something up to get into the feeder!!!! anyway thanks for the support and suggestions, will gladly reccommend you guys to friends and collegues!!

Paper Jam


If it truly stops halfway then it must be obstructed by seomthing. If it only gets a short way past the pick up roller then it may be something else. A little trick for removing obstructions is to fold your paper in half or even a quarter so it is much thicker and stronger and try to feed that through. This can push through any obstructions (assuming they aren't too big). If it still gets stuck see if you can manually turn the main gear found to the side of the carriage and try to push the paper through that way (hence pushing through your obstruction). If your paper feeds through fine doing this then you may have another issue.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.
