Question about Lexmark Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Paper keeps jamming. I tried quite a few times, and still the same result. I can feel there's something wrong once I put the paper in, it kinda doesn't feel the same as it used to be, but have no clue what to do about it. Short of buying a new one of course. Grrrrr

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to reply. Well what I finally did was unscrewing every screw I could see and taking the thing apart, well not completely but about half way. I found something that fell inside the thing, actually it fell off during my disassembly, and now it works again, like a clockwork. A lesson learned. I have rearranged everything so that the printer is well within access, and nothing is above it. Thanks again.

    @FXYRSLFNSAVE. I had a heck of the time putting it all together, ended up with a couple of extra screws, have no idea where from. No they didn't fell off, each screw that I undid, I put into a plastic container. God bless the screwdrivers with the magnetic tips - made my life so much easier. Thanks again.

Try removing the paper and tray, and looking to see if there is a jam someplace?

SOURCE: paper jam! paper begins to feed then goes crooked

Please do all the things that you can do before you consider buying a new printer. You can take your printer into a service repair center or computer repair center in your place. If there is nothing that they can do then you can take an option of buying a new one.

SOURCE: Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"

I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Epson wf 7525 paper not loading


Because this printer is new, the problem is not likely to be due to a worn pickup mechanism but the mechanism may not be working correctly as you have noted. Referring the problem to the printer manufacturer may get results

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

PRINTER IS JAMMED SHOWING ERROR


I had a similar problem, my printer was chewing the paper and then I was getting a jammed paper message. I looked inside but couldn't see much anything. I then removed (unscrewed) all the panels, and next I know, a culprit materialized, in other words, something fell inside the printer. I then managed to put it all back together, ended up with a few extra screws, but heck it works like a clockwork. God bless screwdrivers with magnetic tips, they made my life so easier.

Canon pixma ip1900 paper jam


Hi
Here's a few things you can try :-
1. Blow it out with canned air. make sure there are no bits of paper or dust in the paper feed area and in the front access area that could be causing the jam.
2. Verify that the cartridge carriage moves to the service area when the front door is opened (as if to change tanks)
3. Verify that the timing belt, drive belt, gearing and rollers all look normal.
4. Take the network out of play when doing the initial troubleshooting
5. With the computer off, unplug the printer's power cord and USB cord for about 3-5 min
6. Completely uninstall the printer's driver and software. Then reinstall the printer's drivers only.
Retry after each step.
Also if your Canon printer has fax capabilities, and you are getting a false paper jam error, the problem is easy to fix.
Open the scanner lid.
You will see a white strip on the left, under the lid.
There are also two small, white tabs near this strip.
Gently pull on each tab. You should feel a small "click" on the tab that is jammed.
This fixes the problem.
I suspect that when previously scanning something like a book page, one of these tabs got pushed the wrong way.
Hope it will help.Also you can get back to me if you need further assistance.
Thankyou.

Paper Jam on


most printers are pretty cheap now so replacement is always an option....on the other hand, I will spend countless hours trying to figure out what is wrong first. Remove all paper first, open printer and check for pieces of torn paper or debris, if you have a can of air you can blow out the insides to clean. Put 3 or 4 sheets of paper in, print a test page and watch carefully how paper advances...is it straight or crooked when being loaded? Is printer trying to pull more than 1 sheet at a time? Good luck

Paper jam error message


I had the same problem, and found that the sheet feeder mechanism was intermittent. The problem seems to be that the lubricating grease inside the mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it) becomes too slippery with age, and stops picking up the activating arm which allows the cam unit to move to kick the top sheet of paper into the rubber feed wheel.
The repair was extremely difficult because it involved taking most of the printer apart to get to the ink pump/sheet feeder mechanism.(white nylon round thing with gears on it). And then I tried quite a few lubricants (including no lubricant at all) but none of these worked reliably. Finally I tried a dab of automotive wheel bearing grease (it feels like glue), and this worked perfectly. I have had no more paper jam errors and no miss-feeds in about 7months of everyday use.
