SOURCE: Lexmark P6250 paper Jam

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others

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

  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
  9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

SOURCE: paper jam lexmark x3470

#2 works for an x3470, but jostling the small cylinder that accepts the paper (nudge it gently toward the printer) seems to be what pulls back the microswitch...

How do I clean the heads on a Lexmark T642 as it is starting to leave large ink drops on the paper

A T642 has no "heads"as in an inkjet. "Drops" on the paper are mostly caused by a leaking cartridge. So try replacing the cartridge.

The T642 jams constantly under the toner cartridge when printing from the manual tray.

Hi, Make sure you have all of your paper settings properly configured in the Paper Menu of the printer. Paper size, type and weight. Then make sure there is nothing blocking the path of the paper as it enters the printer. That will be easy to notice since if there was and obstruction the paper will get damaged. If there is nothing in the paper path then the printer must be giving you an error. If its a 201 then the input sensor(little plastic flag under the toner) could be damaged. If it gives you a 202 then maybe the fuser exit sensor is damaged. In that case you will have to contact Lexmark's tech support so that you can get help if your printer is still under warranty.

On a T642 prints out first three sheets just fine but on 4th it never makes it to the fuser. The paper curels inbetween the fusers and toner. 201.32 error

The error 201 means exactly what you are getting;
a paper jam between the printer input and exit sensors.

It is common on these printers for toner to build up on the fuser input guide and eventually gets so big as to catch on the leading edge of the paper,

you will need to scrape the encrusted toner off of the guide.

If the device has done a large volume of printing (say over 100k) it may be a faulty fuser assembly.

Im getting plain paper jam at the fuser... I work for a large Hospital , and at this locations we have about about 100 pirnters they all are lexmark T642 and 50% of them have 3 to 4 tray and labels and...

You can replace those rollers. They wear smooth very quickly. In a pinch you can also peel them off the hub and put them on inside out. It will give it traction. It sounds like you already know about the little sensor in the trays themselves. I've seen them pop out of position and cause those probs. I don't think they could have made those sensors any cheaper if they had tried!

T642 Paper Jam and Check paper stock jamming.

You need to change the paper type when using card stock, plain etc.
As for the paper jams; you need to check the exit sensor at the exit door, also if you have a duplex, 2-3 drawer you also need to check for jams.
