Question about Lexmark X75 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not turn on

My son accidentally dropped a twist tie into the printer.In order to get it out I had to take the printer apart.I had to remove the wire connector and the ribbon wire came out as well when I removed the top.I replaced everything,plugged the wire connector back in and the ribbon wire.Now when I plug in the printer to power up, it seems to start up, like the paper feed sounds and the computer recognizes the printer but the power button won't come on and nothing is functioning.I wonder when the ribbon wire came off,it is now not connecting properly.I run windows XP

You have already answered you own question. The ribbon wire holds about 30 wires in it. they all have to be seated in perfectly or it won't work for you. Take it to a computer store and see if they can re-seat it for you. Probably 30 bucks for labor to fix.

Says there is a paper jam and there is none

Might be something deep inside your printer causing this. I had same problem and i got fed up and took printer apart, there was actually a small tiny screw sitting way below the rollers. My son probably dropped in there. I removed it and put back together and it worked perfect.

Error message about a paper jam won't clear. There is no paper jam.

Unplug the power cord and data cable for a few minutes, then turn it back on. If that doesn't work, open every door, remove all paper and make sure there are no other obstructions (I once found a twist-tie in mine, so you never know).

Uneven paper feed

i sprayed the roller with wd-40 and tried copying to use paper to remove the excess lubricant, after it sat for 2 days it worked fine again. luckily i didnt have money at the time or i would've bought a new one.

Canon MP530 shows paper jam, when paper is not jammed.

First – diagnose your problem. In my case the first roller which feeds the paper through the ADF (under small black flip up cover on top) was not turning. Hence no paper advance and error claimed a paper jam (it wasn’t – just a failure to advance paper)
The cause turned out to be a stuck gear turning that silver rod at the top. A bit of household oil has worked a charm.
To get at the gear, unhinge the ADF cover retaining tie (black flexible plastic stopping it opening all the way). Just lift it up and roll over towards printer.
Then unscrew one screw next to that tie. Gently prise plastic cover off by lifting up from left hand side (near that black tie). It should rotate off. Keep power on and fingers out.
Put a few drops of oil on top gear. Place paper in ADF and attempt a batch scan operation. Gears should turn and lubricate parts. Repeat.  Once working, replace cover, screw and tie.
Mine had seized months ago and is now working fine. Hope yours does too.
P.S. Get a Continuous Ink System (as sold on eBay) - awesome for an ink guzzler...

Paper jam

After assisting the card through the printer I opened the cover for another inspection, the card had dislodged a twist-tie which had somehow fallen into the printer

Card reader

look under the rubber feet on the bottom and there should be 4 screws under there,but when you take it apart wear surgical gloves as the static off your hands will damage it.
