Lexmark laser paper jams and wrong size paper reporting


the quickest way to find out if your paper jams are due to wrong size paper reporting is to print the network status page.
This page is outline with a line that runs 1/2inch from the edge all the way around the outer edge.
if the box of this page prints smaller than the letter size paper the paper reporting is smaller than 8 1/2 x 11 and if the line at the bottom of the page is missing its reporting a size larger than 8 1/2 x 11 either of these occurances willl be the cause of your paper jams

Paper jam but no paper is jamed in printer


I have had this issue before. I hope this helps you. Try these steps:
1) Open the the top cover; then close it..read the message on the screen. If it doesn't resolve..
2) Remove paper and insert a fresh stack of paper. Making sure that edges are smooth..no creases or wrinkles.
3) Open paper feed area. If you have pipe cleaners available, clean each opening. You can use the fine hose attachment from a vacuum to do the same thing, if needed. Proceed to close the paper feed compartment..read the message on the screen. If it doesn't resolve..
3) Turn off the printer for a few minutes; then power it back on. Printers 'read or sense' the paper as the printing job occurs. Even the smallest shred of paper can cause the printer to identify it as a paper jam

I hope this helped you.

When you print each page has a gray/black line running down the page from top to bottom about 2.5 inches from the edge of the paper. Sometimes it is darker and other times it is lighter. We have tried...


While the line is showing up on the output pages.
Stop printing and put paper in the manual feed tray (tray 1).
Start printing again. As a page gets pulled into the printer about 1/2 way open the top cover.
Pull out the toner and look at the page inside the printer. If it doesn't have the grey/black line, get the fuser replaced. It is defective.

I have an HP Photosmart C8180 All-in-One that was purchased in 2008. I have using it to scan slides and create JPEG files from which I have been making prints, mostly 4x6 format. Just today for the first...


Issue The All-in-One is working, but the printed output is not straight on the page. It is skewed or crooked. Solution Follow these steps to resolve this issue: Step one: Ensure that the paper is loaded correctly
  1. To make sure that the paper is loaded correctly, check the following conditions:
    • The right side of the paper is even with the right side of the paper tray.
    • The paper guides are adjusted to the edges of the paper.
    • The paper is flat in the tray.
  2. Make sure only one type of paper is loaded in the All-in-One.
  3. Make sure the rear access door is securely installed.
Print a diagnostic page If no identifiable problem exists with the paper or the guides, print a test diagnostic page to see if the unit is operating correctly. Follow these steps to print a diagnostic page:
  1. Load letter, A4, or legal unused plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Touch the Setup icon on the display.
  3. Touch Tools .
  4. Touch Self-Test Report . The HP All-in-One prints a Self-Test report, which might show the source of the printing problem.
Validate that the printer is within skew tolerance Follow these steps to validate that the printer is within skew tolerance using the self test report:
  1. Fold the paper horizontally into half. Look through the paper to see the single and double lines at the top and bottom of the page.
  2. The line over the single line and the line below the two lines should overlap exactly.
  3. The single line at the top of the page should fall between the two lines at the bottom of the page.
Step two: Clean the paper rollers Follow these steps to clean the paper rollers:
  1. Turn off the unit and unplug the power cord.
  2. Remove the rear access door.
  3. Wipe the paper rollers with a lint-free cloth lightly moistened with distilled or bottled water. Rotate the rollers with your fingers to clean all the way around.
  4. Allow the rollers to dry completely, and then replace the rear access door.
  5. Plug the unit back in and turn it on.
Step three: Service the printer If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product. If this does not resolve the probelm I suggestsdownloading the HP Print Diagnoostic Utility:

D7160 error messages showing put the papers facing down , its correct selection from our side but keeps showing the messges


Print a self-test report. See the section on how to use these solutions at the beginning of this document.
  • If the self-test report prints , try printing the original document again. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the self-test report prints, but the original document does not , continue to the next solution in this document.
  • If the self-test report does not print , try printing the report again. Listen for the rubber paper-pick rollers; you should be able to hear them rotating. Then, try slowly pushing the paper farther in until the roller engages to pick up the paper. Be careful not to push the paper in too far, which can cause paper jams.
    • If the self-test report does not print when slowly pushing the paper farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.
    • If the self-test report prints when slowly pushing the paper farther in , try printing the original document again. The paper might not have been loaded far enough into the product. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
    • If the paper only feeds through the product when you slowly push it farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.

Printer is not aligning paper properly.


Please try the following to resolved that issue:

1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the desired tractor is selected (the corresponding tractor arrow should be lit).
2. Open the upper cover.
3. Press the Top of Form button to enter top-of-form mode. The printer beeps once, and the Top of Form light turns on.
4. Use the Micro Feed buttons to feed the paper to the desired top-of-form position. The “A” on the ribbon protector shows you where the bottom edge of your first line of text will print. This position is based on the first printable line of text. If your software inserts a top margin of five lines, your text will actually print five lines below the top-of-form position.
5. Press the Top of Form button again to exit and save your new top-of-form position. Then close the top cover.
