Printer working great, then changed paper from 8x10 to 4x6 and that is when the problem started. In computer, I also may have switched print to landscape; which now I read I should not do.? I have thouroughly looked at printer, nothing is jammed inside.

Re: SAYS PRINTER IS JAMMED; YET NOTHING IS IN THERE.
Normally turning it off and back on resets the error code. However, lots of times they may be a small piece of a paper stuck causing the error code. Turn the printer off for about 10 minutes, see if that clears it and check one more time for some paper jam.

Clearing Paper Jams If the printer's control panel displays a paper jam message, look for paper in the locations indicated in Figure 22, then see the procedure for clearing the paper jam. You might need to look for paper in other locations than indicated in the paper jam message. If the location of the paper jam is not obvious, look first in the top cover area.When clearing paper jams, be very careful not to tear the paper. If a small piece of paper is left in the printer, it could cause additional jams. If paper jams are a recurring problem, see page 78.(A paper jam message might also display if the rear door is open.)
The top cover of the printer must be opened and then closed to clear a paper jam message.Paper jams can occur at the following locations:Output areas(top and rear)Go to page 75.
Loose toner might remain in the printer after a paper jam, but thetoner should clear after a few sheets are printed.
Hi, Looks like you have a paper jam problem.Pieces of paper are stuck in the roller.Go to Control Panel ->Printers and Fax -> Select you printer and click properties.You will find a Printer Maintainance Wizard,which will have a paper jam clearing wizard.Click this and your printer will work as good as new. Thank You.
Great job on taking out the paper jam without tearing it. Maybe the sensor got stuck and printer keeps thinking it's still has a paper jam. Remove the ink cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in the printer. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges then close the cover. If this doesn't help, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. Thanks
hey i had the same prob til about 5 minutes ago ,, i kept pulling and playing with the jammed paper under the lid where you change the ink,, and finally on the left side ,,a blue piece of soft plastic material came out ,,now it works great ,,i have no idea where it came from but maybe it will help you lets hope
Open the top of the printer as if you were going to change the ink cartridge and push the cartridge to the left. Reach your hand inside and see if the paper from the jam is truly out of there. Sometimes when you pull the paper out the front or back from a paper jam there can still be something stuck inside that is gumming up the works.
