Rint,copy,scan or fax on my x5470 lexmark all in one. I unplug and restart compture and the fax still says paper jam check rollars dont see noughting.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach 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 carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a P915 printer that even though there is paper loaded and no paper jam the paper won't feed. It will start to run and the message "add paper" appears. It appears the "feeder...


There could be some sort of foreign objects that fell into the paper feed system. Remove the sheets of paper from the printer. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any debris. If you are capable and willing, you may carefully turn the printer upside down so any foreign objects will just freely roll out from the feeder.
Re-seating your cartridges may also help resolve the problem. Remove and properly reinsert your cartridges in the cartridge carrier. Turn off/on your printer to reset it.

Paper feeder stuck


If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    Scanner not feeding on lexmark x7170. paper feeds halfway in them reports error/clear paper jam in scanner document feeder.


    I have the same all-in-one printer and have just recently, the unit is a few years old, started having the same problem. I found that that if I make double sure the pages are evenly stacked and very carefully placed in the feeder tray, the problem is less common. It doesn't work everytime but ar least I get my faxes through on the first attempt 75% of the time.

    Loaded paper not going through


    Annie, did you try to feed it one paper at a time? in many printers the feeder doesn't do a good job separating one paper from the rest.
    another thing you can do is to turn off the printer and back on. this might get it out of the stuck status it is in.
    did you check there isn't any paper stuck in the feeder?

    Paper will not feed into printer, even with hand pushing on paper. rollers do not grab the paper.


    Hi,
    The problem could be an object inside the Auto document feeder that could be blocking the path of the paper or preventing the feed roller from feeding the paper. You can try the following, Turn off the printer, unplug it from the power cord, then remove the paper and then turn the printer upside down and shake it a little bit, sometimes this will help remove any objects inside the printer.
