Re: lexmark 5400 series printer

Just today, our Lexmark 5400 began having paper jam issues. We'd try to print, and the paper would initially feed into the back and then wouldn't go any further. Then it gave printer jam error messages. After peering and poking into various areas of the unit I wound up disconnecting the printer from power, phone line, and USB connection, I took it to a better lit room.

Peering carefully into the back paper feed area, I discovered a pencil!! After excising the pencil, the printer worked fine. One of my precious children must have accidentally dropped a pencil into the back, or a pencil was resting on top of the unit and rolled into the back paper feed area.
Lesson learned, don't put pens or pencils on top of the printer.

Re: lexmark 5400 series printer

My color ink cartridge hasa run out. I replaced with a black cartridge. Error message appears - "right cartridge incorrect." Can I have 2 black cartridge's in at the same time? I don't want to buy another color. Nothing seems to work - I have to have the color ink cartridge in, or nothing prints - now I have run out of color - what am I doing wrong?

thanks -

Re: lexmark 5400 series printer

Mine is doing the same as the one who had a pencil stuck in it. But I have unhooked everything and unable to see any type of object(s) in the printer. Is there any suggestions that you may have to this.

Make sure there are no paper debirs in the paper feed track- this may only be a crumb that is causing it. Vacuum the track. switch the printer off and disconnect from the power supply whilst do ing this. Then reconnect and with a ticker piece of paper or thin card try a paper feed. You could also take at look at

Carrier jam

From what you are saying you are getting 'clear carrier jam' because of a misalignment. The jam error message is a generic message that applies to a multitude of things. The carrier while is in right, might not be sitting right. A piece of plastic that holds the carrier might be broken or the printhead might be messed up. Anything that causes it to not sit the way it wants will cause that error message.

It seems you have some piece of paper in the carrier.
Could be just a very small piece somewhere in it... remove the cover and take a very close look. Check all rolls if they are loose or if something is locking them.

Error 1203 and carrier jam error

Error 1203 on a Lexmark is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would suggest you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..

If that doesn't work just call up their support number and check for replacement..

  5. Press Power to turn the All-in-One back on.

Lexmark 5400 series paper jam

As several previous posts said there was a pieces of paper folded up inside. Per a previous post remove the sheet feeder rack. At this point I removed the two outside screws (of the three) on the backe. After this the whole top lifts about 3/4 inch (19mm) to give your fingers more room to clear it. Looks like she will print another day.

Thanks for the tips on here.
