There are at least three possible solutions. The first two are simple the third is fairly complicated unlr=ess you can read a hex dump of a print file. 1) Use the front panel "Paper Menu" to select the tray. 2) Check the driver settings to make sure the driver is set to "Auto" or the correct tray. 3) Set the driver to "Print to File". When prompted to name the print file, name it "tray_fail". If you do not know how to read this file, send it to me at janddgasrepair@verison.net and I'll be happy to take a look at it and see I I can correct the problem. Don

Open the tray and make sure the green paper lever is set to letter mark, both at the bottom of the paper and the one on the side. And yes, if you haven't used it for 3 years, you should clean the dust that settled inside your printer over time.

It started getting jammed recently quite often and generally happens when the paper tray isn't full. It usually either gets jammed near the tray or in the back.


i take it that you getting mutiple different jams and pretty often correct? these printer use a paper size select pcb when these start to go bad the paper size can be change every time you close the drawer or every other page you print. print your network page and see if it prints as big as the page if its smaller the printer thinks it has smaller paper if the lower black line of the box around this page is missing it thinks it should have longer paper. this board is located behind the metel box the logic board is mounted in. for cheaper prices,instruction and support for your lexmark lasers go to L-tech4u.com write an email if you dont see what you need listed they will have it
