Printer pulling on paper

My lexmark x6150 will not print. When I install the paper and try to print something, the paper is pulled to the right. The printer then stops and saids that there is a paper jam. I remove the paper, power off the system just as the printer screen saids and install new paper and try again--the same results. I have trouble shooted to no avail and the paper is installed correctly. Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?

Re: printer pulling on paper

My husband took the top cover off the printer and took a good look inside with a flashlight. He found a hot pink crayon stuck where the paper feeds through. I guess I should have had a better look initially, since the paper never made it all the way through the printer. Works like a charm now!!

Re: printer pulling on paper

Just found why I kept getting paperjam error on my X6150. When you open the top, you will see 4 plastic plates sitting over the main rollers. These plastic plates have 2 little mini rollers on each plate that sit on top of the main rollers. I found that these plates were all sitting back about 5mm back to where they should be. When mine jammed originally when a pen unknowingly fell into the paper feeder, the motor does a quick reverse motion and pushed these plates backwards, not sitting on the roller correctly. I pushed each of these plastic plates forward(towards the control panel) and each clicked back into place. No more paper jam and feeds normally.

Re: printer pulling on paper

I have the same printer with the same problem. I found a pen my 3 year old had put in it. After removing the pen it worked fine. A few months later it is doing it again. I don't feel anything in it & I don't hear anything in it when I picked it up. I'm not sure how to take it apart to see what might be in it...

Re: printer pulling on paper

When did the pulling paper happen? Was paper jammed and removed and then this problem occured? If so check for a stuck piece of paper in the leftside of the roller/feeder. Do the right and left feeders seem even? When the paper starts to feed tightly hold the paper on the rightside and see if the leftside frees up. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

Ok i have a problem. my lexmark x6150 won't take in paper right. it only takes it in on the right side. what is wrong?

Did this start with a paper jam? There could be a piece of paper(ripped corner) binding up the wheel on the left side.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer

For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

Lexmark z2300 printer won't pull in paper

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.

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 !!
