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.

Unit was working fine.It just stopped feeding the paper into the printer.Just makes a high pitched sound like it has no paper in the load shute.Thought it was the Ink.Got new ink,no luck.I don't abuse...


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Use the single-sheet path (top feed) for graphics or charts.

! If you have paper in the paper path, be sure to remove it

before installing rear-feed paper.

3 Pins

4 Lower Tractor Cover

2 Grasp the tabs lift off the paper separator.

3 Pull up on the lock levers and open the tractor covers.

on either side. Close the tractor covers.

5 Move the left tractor to align the edge of the paper with

! The factory default setting for the Top of Form (where

the printing should begin) is one inch down from the top

of the page. To change the setting, see "Using Your
Printer, Top of Form (TOF)."

Top Feed (Single Sheets)

Use the single-sheet path for letterhead stationery, memos,

and individual envelopes.

! If you have continuous-form paper in the path, press

PARK to remove it before loading single sheets.

1 Make sure the printer is on and deselected (SEL light off).

2 Place the paper lever in the position marked "TOP."

single-sheet position.

Printer is saying manual feed insert paper. Will not print


To load paper or other media in the Manual Feed Slot (directly above the Paper Tray)

You can load envelopes and special print media one at a time into this slot. Use the manual feed slot to print or copy on labels, envelopes or thicker paper.

1. Slide the paper guides to fit the paper size.
2. Using both hands put one sheet of paper in the manual feed slot until you feel the front edge of the paper touch the paper feed roller. Let go of the paper when you feel the machine feed the paper in a short distance.

d92e310.jpg

Note: When you put paper in the manual feed slot, please remember the following:
■ The side to be printed on must be face up.
■ Put the leading edge (top of the paper) in first and push it gently into the slot.
■ Make sure that the paper is straight and in the proper position on the manual feed slot. If it is not, the paper may not be fed properly, resulting in a skewed printout or a paper jam.
■ Do not put more than one sheet or envelope in the manual feed slot at a time or you may cause the machine to jam.
■ You can remove smaller sizes of printed paper from the output paper tray more easily if you lift the scanner cover using both hands as shown in the illustration.

You can still use the machine when the scanner cover is raised. You can return the scanner cover to its home position by pushing it down with both hands.



If you would like to disable Manual Feed Mode, check that the manual feed mode is not selected in the printer driver.

Here is a copy of the User's Manual for the Brother MFC-7820N.

I cant find my manual how to i place the paper underneath so it feeds through the bottom


You can use the paper cassette located at the bottom of the printer, on the front when the output paper tray is closed concealing the paper feed switch, the usb port and the cassette lamp.
1 Gently pull out the cassette from the printer.
2. Remove the cover from the cassette.
3. Place your paper in the cassette tray.
a. when using A5 or larger sized paper (non standard sized paper, pinch the tab and extend the cassette if needed.
b. legal sized paper is not loadable in the cassette
4. Do not load paper above the load limit mar4k.
5. Make sure the print side of the paper is facing down.
6. Align the paper stack against the right side of the cassette
7. Slide the paper guides so they fit the loaded paper stack.
8. The paper cassette will hold up to 150 sheets of plain paper, however you do not eant to stack any more than 50 sheets in the Paper Output Tray.
9. Reinsert the cassette into the printer. Then set the cover on the cassette. Now make sure the cassette is pushed al the way into the printer. (If long paper was used and the cassette was extended iy will now extend beyond the front of the printer
10. Prepare the paper output tray by opening the front cover and pulling out the tray extension until extended completely.
11. Press the paper feed switch so the cassette lamp lights.

You can slo select the paper source with the printer driver if you prefer .

Papaer will not feed


High ITConsult And MarkoP

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.

That problem is the registration clutch.
You have to order the registration assembly to get the clutch. It is located on assembly with the black and stainless steel roller, you have to pop out the imaging unit to see it.
But that WILL fix your problem. They changed the style of clutch also. It is more reliable now.

Canon Pixma Paper feed not feeding!!


Either the pickup roller needs to be replaced,(a maintenance kit) or the tray isn't pushing the paper high enough to grab. Tyr loading a few more pages in the tray and making sure the tray is seated properly. Then try replacing the roller.

Does it only whine when it paper is passing through it? Does it whine before the paper is fed in and after it's ejected? If so, could possible be the fuser unit. If it only whines when paper is passing through, it may be the paper passing between a worn-out feed roller and separator pad, which are high-mortality items on this model. Can you supply any more details?
