Paper getting stuck

I have Lexmaerk X2480 , it was working fine and then suddenly one fine day it started pulling paper on one side(right side with roller) sooner than left side therefore pulling paper at an angle and creating a paper jam. I tried holding the paper straight but makes no difference
I will really appreciate any kind of help
Thank you

The reason the paper is going in sideways is because one feed roller has more pressure than the other

try cleaning the rollers with alcohol and cotton cloth

If that does not work remove the paper tray t

take your fingers and see if the feed rollers turn freely or turn in only one direction( some rollers are half moon and only turn a half turn)

Just try to make sure that the roller that is not working is in the same position and turns the same as the one that does feed properly

How do I access the rear tray roller feeds to check if anything is stuck all of a sudden the paper is skewed on the right side and paper doesnñt enter the feed


You say the paper is scewed to the right which means absolutely nothing if you think about it, isn't the left hand side also scewed? Usually one side of the paper is pulled down leaving the other side up thus scewing it.
Firstly make sure nothing has fallen down the paper slot, secondly make sure the sliding paper adjuster to the left of the paper is up tight against the paper, even a 1 millimetre gap can cause this problem, thirdly look down the paper slot with the paper in and make sure there is no gap between the bottom edge of paper and plastic shute or case, you really shouldn't be able to see much of the two pieces of white plastic, now press the green start button.

Paper suddenly started jamming-the right side of the paper pulling down faster than the left. How do I clean the rollers?


If you have previously had a paper jam, and it tore the paper, there could be a very tiny piece of paper stuck in the feed on the side...it only takes something very tiny to prevent the paper from feeding correctly...a child dropping a little piece of food, it could be anything...but I'd be about 90% sure that it's there. I found one once and it was so small it took forever to find it, and it was even harder to get out...you kind of have to work at it with some Q-tips, eyebrow tweezers, a paperclip, something that you can go in and attempt to clear the feed. If you dont/can't find it you may have to take it apart, and that's not fun, and runs the risk of it "never" aligning correctly...so be persistant.

When i print the paper is going down only on one side


Hello there
This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you.
Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

PAPER FEED ISN'T WORKING ON MY LEXMARK X2480 THANKS When paper loads it pulls to one side and folds up and will not feed.


Last time I saw this was a few months ago when I retrieved a small comb from the paper infeed section of my pals printer.

It is worth disconnecting the printer from it leads turn it upside down and give it a good shake in case there is something way down in the paper track

Is it pulling through only on the right?
Or left?
Either way [sounds like] it needs taking apart to put the paper feeder cogs back inline.
To the right would suggest the easier option of the bar which is visible from where the paper exits has dislodged and the cogs sit on the left hand side of it.
As the paper feeds through it's unlikely the other option as those cogs are what feeds the paper through but they are intricate so it can't be ruled out.
Not much fun if you don't like doing mechanical maintenance I guess!

Problem seems to be in the design. The paper loading roller pulls on the corner of the sheet,cocking it to one side. If the paper was pulled in from the center of the sheet,it would be pulled in straight and evenly.

Canon MP160 all in one


don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Yesterday someone replied to my problem, i tried it this morning and its fixed 1st time.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now
