Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Looking for a drive gear for a Lexmark LX83

I found the problem that is causing the LX83 to jam and took the printer apart but cannot find the gear that cracked on it. I would like to repair this myself. Can you tell me where I can buy this gear. It's attached to the main drive roller that is on the inside of the printer. It's the only roller that runs almost the full width of the printer. Also I could not figure out how the roller was actually driving the roller as it didn't have a pin or a groove of any kind to slip the gear onto. I use to be a copy machine repairman so am familiar with this normal way of driving rollers.

All I can say is good luck! Parts for ink jet printers are nearly impossible to get. They're so cheap that it's not worth it to repair them.

    I saw an LX83 on the second-hand shelf today. $12 for the whole printer, but no guarantee it still works. May even have the same problem.

Beaters won't turn bowl still does turn


I just took mine apart for this same issue. What i found was the plastic beater drive gears have been stripped by the motor worm gear. I am currently looking for these parts to replace them.

Tip

I found this very useful. I have a brand new F5914-900 and no other solution...


When the brushes stop spinning on a Hoover SteamVac, it can be caused by several things. In order to diagnosis why your brushes aren't spinning, please view the diagnosis solution I have done on Fixya:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t4286338-hooverspin_scrub_brushes_always_stop


If you have diagnosed your machine, and found that the internal receptacle is not spinning, then you'll now need to replace your turbine. This tip will explain in detail how you'll need to complete this repair.

Here's what you'll need to complete this repair:
- Hoover SteamVac Replacement Turbine Brush Gear (several different parts for different models)
- Phillips Head Screwdriver
- Flat Head Screwdriver

Step 1. Remove both the clean solution, and the dirty solution tanks from the machine, and press the handle release pedal so that the handle is laying down flat:

Step 2. With a flat head screwdriver, pry off the rotating brush speed indicator knob:
407b985.jpg
Step 3. Unscrew the silver screw that's at the very top of the see-thru suction port where the dirty solution tank rests.

Step 4. Turn the SteamVac upside down so that the brushes are facing upwards. There are four clips that hold these brushes in place. You'll need to remove the brushes from the machine by squeezing the four tabs while pulling upwards at the same time. The picture actually only shows the two tabs on the right hand side being squeezed, but the tabs on the left hand side are in the exact same location:

23e0faa.jpg
Step 5. Once you've removed the brush block from the machine, there are 4 screws on the bottom that need to be removed. Keep the two silver screws on the very corner in place, you won't need to remove these. Remove the four screws that I've highlighted in red:

91d0198.jpg
Step 6. Turn the machine back over right side up, so that the brushes are on the bottom. There are two clips that hold the top housing in place. Insert your flat head screwdriver in between the top and lower housing in the rear of the machine close to the rear wheels, and pry upwards to un-clip these clips on both the left and right sides, then remove the top motor housing from the machine.

Step 7. You'll now have complete access to the turbine. Remove the two silver screws in the front of the unit that hold the turbine in place, as well as remove the front hose from the turbine:

cabbd35.jpg
Step 8. Once you have removed the two screws you'll be able to lift the turbine up. There's a second hose in the rear of the turbine that you'll also need to remove before you can remove the turbine completely. After you've removed the hose, take the turbine out of the machine. You'll notice to the immediate left of the turbine other hoses that connect to a black circular part. This is actually the pump that sprays the water on the floor. If you ever have the problem where the clean water solution will not spray, it's a good possibility that this part needs to be replaced.
04dc1da.jpg
Simply install the new turbine, reattached the hoses and two front screws. When you're putting the top motor housing back on the unit, make sure that the brush speed selector knob that's on the right side of the turbine fits through the **** in the top motor housing. Also before you tighten the two screws that that hold the top housing in in front of the brushes, there's two clips. You'll need to snap the top motor housing behind these two clips. Simply push front of the motor housing until you hear it snap into place.

Hi, How did you remove the paper jam. You might have applied a lot of pressure while removing the paper jam and that might have damaged parts in the sensing unit. If the printer is fairly new, I would recommend you to take it to the manufacture's service center and get is checked thoroughly assuming that the printer is still covered under warranty. So you the warranty period and get a free check-up.
Cheers!

Alignment error after replacing black ink. Lexmark X5495


I found a pencil inside my printer and took it out. It was not easy but now it does not jams the paper. Disconnect the power cord and softly shake the printer from side to side making sure you are holding on to the top scanner door so it won't flip open and listen for anything rolling or loose inside. It just might be your problem.

Paper will not feed through though the carts do pass


My printer did the same thing, paper would not feed through so my son and i took it all apart and found the feed driver gear to be cracked, "it's a little plastic gear on a long shaft", and it was slipping on the shaft.
To fix it we hard wired the gear together where it was cracked to made it more tight on the shaft.
Unfortunatly by taking it all apart we broke it, now it gives an error message "Carrier stall press power key", havent't found a fix for that yet, but we will :)

Repeated, Unexplained Paper Jams With Little or No Damage to the Paper ID:ENUS5286 null.gif null.gif null.gif
IMPORTANT: The printer should rest on a surface that is flat, level, and uniform. This is for safety reasons as well as for paper feed reliability. In the bottom left corner on the front of the printer, as well as on the duplexer and each paper feed option apart from the 2000-sheet feeder, there is a shaft that rotates as the main drive motor in the printer operates. The purpose of this shaft (called the Power Take Off shaft) is to turn the pass-through rollers in the option below. The Power Take Off (PTO) shaft rotates during the printer's POR as well as any time the main drive motor turns, including while paper is feeding from any source and when the toner is agitated in the cartridge.
If the printer is on an uneven or non-level surface, the PTO shaft may not make full contact with the bevel gear on the lower options.
If the printer is on a surface that is not uniform (such as a carpet or foam padding), the PTO shaft on the lowest option may catch or bind, causing the paper feed operation to slow or stop completely.
In either case, repeated and unexplained paper jams (with little or no damage to the paper) may occur. The paper jam is due to the increased amount of time it takes the paper to feed through the path because the PTO shaft is bound or caught on the surface below, or is slipping on the bevel gear.
NOTE: This is not a printer defect or failure although it may result in a broken or stripped PTO shaft.

Lexmark Z45 printer won't print


I am the same user as the guest above, I just found a solution. I took mine apart. I found that (when looking at the unit from the front with the cover off with the gears on the left) the 3rd gear from the bottom left had a crack in it. It was the gear that turns the 4 large round rubber cylinders from underneath the paper. Anyway, I kept turning on/off until the crack was on top and then I dropped a drop of Super Glue (red cap version for use on Rubber/Plastic/etc.). I put a little pressure on it using 2 thin screwdrivers in the gear teath to compress it but in looking back I don't think that was necessary. I think the crack in the gear was causing mine to slip so just making it solid again helped enough to make one work like normal again. I'll see how long this holds up. Good Luck. Scott.
