Printer says "door open", but nothing open.

In Windows go to the control panel and click Printers. If possible open the print spooler and check to see if Windows is "stuck" on the print job that was in progress when the printer jammed.

Sometimes Windows doesn't "let go" of the pending print job and it will prevent further printing if it didn't get the message that the jam has been cleared. You can also try disconnecting the printer, open and close the print door and also remove and reattach the rear panel (if your printer has one). Then reconnect the printer and see if Windows properly recognizes that it is ready to print.

Hi,
Try to reset your printer to factory default settings. But before you do that, I'd like you to do this first.
  • Open the printer access door.
  • Remove and install the print head two times.
  • Close the printer access door.
  • Wait until the printer is ready to use.
if this won't work.
reset all defaults to the factory default settings:
1. Press Home. 2. Press "arrow down" to select Printer Settings. 3. Press "arrow down" to select Reset All Settings, then press OK. 4. When you see the message, "This will reset printer settings to factory defaults," press OK
Hope this helps.

I was printing a 10-page job and the first page just got stuck halfway out of the printer. I tried pressing the reset buttons, tugging gently on the paper, nothing. I tried unplugging it and plugging it...


If the paper is halfway OUT of the printer, that means that the other half is stuck in the fuser.
Open the toner cartridge door and remove the toner. Leave the door open. This relieves tension on the rollers.
Grab the paper as close as you can to the back of the printer and pull the paper out carefully.
Put the toner back in and close the door. You may have to power cycle the printer.

Here are the steps to reset the page count on a Lexmark E234, as described here:
  1. Power the printer on and get it to the Ready state.
  2. With the printer on and in the Ready state, open the front cover.
  3. Press and hold the Cancel button until all of the lights begin flashing up and down.
  4. Release the Cancel button and close the door. The photoconductor count should now be reset.
Hope that helps!
