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.

Hello, My printer says that I have a paper jam but I can't find anything. I took all the paper out and put it in again. I turned the pirinter off and on. Nothing works. The page that originally got stuck,...


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

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.

Unable to print properly keeps printing on one line


Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
