Re: my lexmark is jammed
Did you have any jams recently where the paper was badly damaged, and or came out in pieces? If so there may be a small amount of paper still jammed in the printer, out of sensor range. try looking deep into the bottom of the paper path and around the roller.

Try checking the printer for foreign objects that might be interfering with the paper path. Tilt the printer sideways and try shaking it a bit. After that, try printing. If the issue persists, clean the rollers of the printer.
There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.
You can avoid most paper jams by correctly loadingpaper and other media in the printer.
Tips on how to help prevent paper jams
·Do not loadwrinkled, creased, or damp paper.
·Make sure thepaper is not buckled in the tray.
·Never mixpaper/media types within a single tray.
·Flex, fan, andstraighten paper before you load it.
·Do not exceed themaximum stack height.
·Push all papertrays firmly into the printer after loading them.
·Make sure theguides in the trays are positioned snugly against the paper.
·Do not remove anypaper trays while a job is printing. Wait for a Load Paper light sequencebefore you remove the tray. See the 'Load Media' section on page 61 of theUser's Guide for more information.
·Use onlyrecommended paper. Consult the CardStock & Label Guide on the Lexmark web site for more information aboutwhich paper provides optimum results for your printing environment.

Usually it's because something has fallen down the back where the paper goes. One person on here turned her printer upside down and shook it and a Bic pen fell out. I got one last week with a wood screw inside. sometimes I find push pins, candy or jewelry. If nothing comes out try looking inside with a light and small mirror.
Rotate tires. Pull out paper tray. Pull down on red low paper indicator at left bottom. Two rollers come down on axel near center. I pulled off the rubber tire like roller, then twisted the roller inside out and reinstalled it with the fresh side out. If tires dry out again will probably buy new ones from ebay.
Look down the paper feed into the printer you will see one white plastic roller. Find a cotton bud and soak the end in methylated spirits and poke it down and wipe the roller. make sure you wipe the whole circumference of the roller. This removes any grease that has come off the paper onto the roller and allows the roller to grip the paper better. I have done this once and have not had a recurrence of the problem.
Can you tell me if the paper goes through squint?.
if you turn the printer upside down and give it a gentle shake and see if anything comes out, i have removed pens, toast, and loads of other things that sometimes gets stuck inside. also have a look and see if you can find any jammed paper even if its only a tiny bit, this fixes 80% of the printers that comes into us.
hope it works
