Feed paper light stays on, and paper doesn't feed through

Is there a way to fix this problem? The feed paper light stays on and no matter how many times I click on it, the paper won't be fed to be printed on. The cartridge move from side to side without feeding the paper through. Please help!

My printer has the blue light on the lightbult and low toner (but ink is fine) - it will not print anything. The stuff sits in the print queue and i have to eventually delete it. The report will print...


My work-around for this problem is to feed paper in manually through the front. I turn the printer off and make sure all paper is out of the printer. When you turn the printer on - and the blue light stays lit (if it doesn't turn it off and wait - I've had to wait quite some time sometimes).. then manually feed 1 sheet of paper in the manual feed tray at the front. When the paper is inserted... you should be fine to print - and keep feeding paper in until you get your job. If you miss - you might need to hit the "continue" (triangle button)..
I've been trying to find out why mine locks up - and why it keeps jamming - but this is a tried and proven menthod - althought it is annoying it might help you for now.. Good luck

Paper won't feed through. goes about 2-4 inches the stops no matter how many times i clear the jam.


Hi If you remove the toner/drum unit and look into the back of the printer you will see the paper feed roller and just above it a long thin foam covered roller. Clean this foam covered roller with a damp cloth, it will be covered in toner and too slippy to feed the paper. Turn it and clean until it feels sticky again, all should now work !

Paper light stays on


if there is paper in the tray..and paper won't feed up after you press print, that mean paper is jam... but for this model, you have to make sure the drum unit is clean as dirty drum unit will cause paper not able to feed,..
suggest clean up the internal part of the printer and test again.. use a slightly wet cloth to clean the feed roller.. too much dust will cause it not to feed properly.

Paper jams no matter what stock I use; Lexmark e232


Slipping paper feed rollers is probably causing the jamming. Remove the paper tray and tip the machine back so that you can access the feed rollers from underneath. A good technique to isolate this problem is to remove the rubber feed tires, turn them inside-out and refit them. If it now works OK you need to get new feed rollers.

Canon Pixma MX850 says it's out of paper when there is paper


The feed switch changes the paper feed from rear feed to tray feed (paper tray is under the output bin). If you have paper in the rear feed, the green light should be on top of the printer icon left of the feed switch. If you have paper in the tray, the light should be on the bottom of the printer icon.

Paper feed on Lexmark x5490


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.
