Lexmark X7170 not ejecting printed sheets

My printer is working fine...if I just print 1 sheet at a time and remove each sheet. The printed sheet is still in the rollers and if I fail to pull out the just completed sheet fast enough, the first lines of the next sheet are printed on it plus the sheets eventually jam. I use this machine as a fax and I am coming home to a jammed machine with only 1 legible print. Please help. Thank you.

Re: Lexmark X7170 not ejecting printed sheets

Time to get a new printer, because you cannot get the parts.

Lexmark x7170 changed ink cartridge. test sheet comes up great, print something and it says ink low. i tried to shut off 5x's to maybe reset/ reinstalled ink cartridges same message. cleaned heads

The Lexmark x7170 should let you continue printing with the ink cartridge regardless of the estimated ink with most cartridges. The only exception to this is if the cartridges are part of Lexmark's returns programme. I would advise removing the cartridge and checking for small text stating "Return Programme Cartridge" on the label. If this is present sadly there is no way of continuing, apart from buying a new cartridge.

With regards to the low ink estimate, am I right in assuming you are using a refilled or remanufactured ink cartridge? If so this is unavoidable but should not prevent you from printing until the ink physically runs out.

E260 will not print labels

This printer has capability to print on labels. Here are some tips when printing on labels:

· Use labels designed specifically for laser printers. Check with the manufacturer or vendor to verify that the labels can withstand temperatures up to 210°C (410°F) without sealing, excessive curling, wrinkling, or releasing hazardous emissions.

· Labels can be printed at a higher fusing temperature up to 220°C (428°F) if Label Weight is set to Heavy.

· Select this setting using the Embedded Web Server, or from the printer control panel Paper menu. Label adhesives, face sheet (printable stock), and topcoats can withstand up to 25-psi (172-kPa) pressure without delaminating, oozing around the edges, or releasing hazardous fumes.

· Do not use labels with slick backing material.

· Use full label sheets. Partial sheets may cause labels to peel off during printing, resulting in a jam. Partial sheets also contaminate the printer and the cartridge with adhesive, and could void the printer and cartridge warranties.

· Do not use labels with exposed adhesive.

· Do not print within 1 mm (0.04 in.) of the edge of the label, of the perforations, or between die-cuts of the label.

· Be sure adhesive backing does not reach to the sheet edge. Zone coating of the adhesive at least 1 mm (0.04 in.) away from edges is recommended. Adhesive material contaminates the printer and could void the warranty.

· If zone coating of the adhesive is not possible, remove a 2-mm (0.06-in.) strip on the leading and driver edge, and use a non-oozing adhesive.

· Portrait orientation works best, especially when printing bar codes.

· Use only paper label sheets. Vinyl, pharmacy, and dual-sided labels are not supported.

Streaks in my pictures

You can clean the print head by using the following procedure from the troubleshooting section of the manual:

Take paper out of the printer
Take a single sheet and put it back in - upside down (i.e. shiny side down).
Close the door and wait for the sheet to eject.
Put all the paper back into the printer in the correct orientation (shiny side up), close the lid and print again.

I've discovered even better results by keeping the special blue sheet that comes with each paper pack. I run the special sheet through before I'm about to use the printer for the first time (after not using it for a few days), and also after every three prints. The result is much better printouts for me. The special blue sheet cleans and calibrates the print head. Just put the blue sheet in the paper tray at the bottom of the stack with the bar code facing down and close the lid. It will automatically eject.

Paper jam

If the jammed sheet is entirely within the printer, remove the sheet as follows:

r_1.gif Make sure that the printer is turned off.

r_2.gif Open the printer cover by pressing the latch on the left side of the printer and lifting the cover up all the way.


r_space.gif r_warn.gif Warning: r_space.gif r_space.gif Opening the printer cover exposes the fuser, which is marked CAUTION Hot Surface Avoid Contact. Be careful not to touch the fuser. If the printer has been in use, the fuser may be very hot.

r_3.gif Remove the developer cartridge.


r_space.gif r_caut.gif Caution: r_space.gif r_space.gif When removing the developer cartridge, never touch the developing roller under the flap; otherwise, print quality may decline.


r_4.gif Remove the photoconductor unit.


r_space.gif r_caut.gif Caution: r_space.gif r_space.gif Never touch the photoconductor unit's light-sensitive drum; otherwise, print quality may decline.


r_5.gif Remove the paper from the paper path.


r_space.gif r_note.gif Note: r_space.gif r_space.gif If paper is jammed at the fuser, grasp the bottom of the paper and pull it out.


r_6.gif Reinstall the photoconductor unit, and then the developer cartridge.

r_7.gif Close the printer cover.

r_8.gif Tap the edges of the stack of paper on a flat surface and carefully reload it into the MP tray. (Do not reload curled or wrinkled sheets.)

Printing automatically restarts from the page that jammed. If the Paper light stays on after removing all jammed paper, open and close the printer cover to clear the error.
