Question about Lexmark X73 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper will not go through properly

When trying to copy, the paper drops down to the proper position when it starts to copy but then it stays in the same spot while it is printing. About halfway through printing the paper starts to move again and finishes. The print on the copy is all at the top of the paper and blurry.

Thanks for your help. Bob Kincart

    pape will not go though printer

  • Anonymous Dec 22, 2008

    Paper feeds half-way, begins printing, but paper will not advance. After the icon displays about 60% to 100% of printing job, the printer will not advance the paper and paper jam announcement is relayed.



    Upon pressing paper feed the printer seems to lock up. I have removed every paper that I can find, but I have no way of disassembling the unit to find if any paper pieces are left in the machine. All the paper has come out without tearing (complete) for this last job attempt. I have no way of knowing what is locking up the unit, preventing the paper from properly advancing during the printing job.

I didn't think I would have this much trouble finding a solution to my problem. I thought you people would be able to help me. I am going to buy another printer, but not a Lexmark.

Hp Officejet 6500 won't feed paper


Problem:
The 'drop down paper grabber' gears are not turning, and the printer gives you an error saying to make sure there is paper in the printer.
All of the fixes on the internet are for working printers, and their approach is to clean the rollers if they are not grabbing the paper. They are assuming they are turning properly and the rubber grabbing wheels are wither dirty of dried out.
In my case, however, the gears were not turning, and so the rubber grabbers wheels were not turning, even though the whole 'paper grabber' unit was dropping down properly
Solution:
Just inside the paper loader tray, along the top, there is a metal rod. It is about 1 inch from the front.
The gears from the drop down paper grabber are supposed to meet a gear that resides on this rod and sort of floats on it. However, the gear on my printer slipped to the left, and was not making contact with the other gears.
You can gently put your finger on the gears as you do a copy command, and confirm this.
To fix the printer, I just slid the floating gear over to the right and into place, and the paper began feeding properly.
Why there is nothing to keep the gear in place is a mystery to me.

Feeder in my canon mg5250 is not working properly. It seems to feed one side and twists the paper and then sticks.


Did you check, nothing is in the paper feeder? Could be just a little piece of paper or a staple is blocking proper functioning of the feeder.
Keep the paper try clean and take care you never drop or leave anything in the printer, that does not belong there.

Cx3650 Problem with paper feeder


There could be an issue with the gear inside your printer now that is why it is not feeding the paper through properly anymore. Please try this basic troubleshooting steps:
Turn off the printer. Disconnect the USB cable from your printer. Open up the whole scanner unit to see if there are objects blocking the way of the printhead or if there are any objects down the paper feed area. Check if the cartridge cover is closed properly. Toggle the paper guide left to right back to the proper position. Load 10 to 20 sheets of regular paper into the printer. Turn the printer back on. Do a standalone copy.

Paper Jam light


Make sure paper is loaded properly (pushed down under the end clips.) There could be a small piece stuck in the rollers somewhere. Look from the side door.
