if your paper feed not straight, most probably the feed roller.. the roller which feed the paper is broken.. the normal broken area is the tip holding the roller, it can be repaired if you know how to open the printer and remove the roller.. you can always drill a small hole and insert a small round wood piece.. to be sure, try feeling the roller with your hand first.. if there is much free space between the roller and lower part.. then most probably it's broken..
Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties. Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case
if the pick wheels are just hanging down you need a bell crank for the auto-compensator this part is 56p1228 turn the printer onto its back this plastic piece is known to break. look to the right its located on the end of the long shaft comming fron the auto compensator and if its broken there should be a spring either in the tray of still hanging from the mount
It could be one of a few things... You may have a small piece of paper jamed in the fixing unit or you may have a broken driver gear for the fusing unit.. If you do not see the fixing rollers turning and it is making a noise, the gear most likely is broken.
1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover. 2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.) 3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.) 4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring. 5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6. If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service. 6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. 7. Turn the printer off. 8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. 9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
The most likly problem by far, it a broken fuser drive gear.
That would be in the area where is says caution, heated surfaces.
Look on the inside, back side of that assembly, and you will find a gray/black gear either broken or with some teeth missing. You may even look inside toward the back on the frame and see pieces of that gear broken. Either that, or one of the stripper fingers on that roller are bent down blocking the paper in that area..
Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...
Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a can of compressed air inside the machine. If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you need to replace the feed rollers.
