Question about Lexmark X5495 Printer

1 Answer

4 in 1 won't feed paper, makes a high pitched whine.

My 4 in 1 says it does not have paper when it does. Says to load paper and push select, but this does nothing. When it is asked to print, whether by incoming fax, making a copy or from the computer, it makes a high pitched whine. I have turned it off, re-booted the computer, cleaned everything I can reach, checked for paper stuck anywhere, etc but to no avail. It will even squeak when I turn the printer back on, but before I ask it to print again.

    my printer will not print or copy, it acts like it will print but every time it starts the paper either gets jammed or will just not feed at all. Oh and the scanner just never seemed to have installed correctly on my computer. It always said "application error". I have reinstalled, and rebooted my software cleaned my ink cartridges and nothing tends to work.

How do I fix a high pitch noise when spinning?


If your washing machine is making a high-pitched whine or squealing noise while running, the main culprit is usually worn motor bearings. To check the motor bearings, remove the belt and run the motor by itself, listening for the noise. If it makes the noise, than the problem is most likely the result of worn motor bearings.

I have a borrowed Casio FR 105S printing calculator. How do I load the paper?


Make sure the paper has a straight clean edge. Feed the paper into the slot in the back - make sure the paper is straight. Paper will go in about 1/4 inch. Push the feed button and the paper should feed through the printer.

High pitched buzz/whine during wash cycle only, spin fine


1) Make sure valve is open all the way 2) some machines have a screen inside of the hose hook up which could be clogged. 3) last check to see if it is the hot or cold by switch your selector switch on your machine to hot then cold. If one of these positions eliminate the noise then the valve in the machine is bad.

The high pitched whine and the paper stopping just before the fuser (the hot) unit is a known issue on the C3000 and C4100. If you are still searching for the solution to this issue, let me know, as I now have a working fix for the problem.
