Re: lexmark X5250 PAPER WONT AUTO-FEED

Very pesty!!! Ok, it may be a paper feeder issue. It could be a partially jammed roller or carriage, open up unit as if you were to change cartridge, use a torch to check for the tiniest paper block or foreign material. You would be surprised what can fall or accidenatlly get in them...funny that, i just cleared a tiny piece of toddler debris from my lexmark, and i missed it the first time. Also, paper sensors can start to go and die, hope it is not this!!! as it will need replacing if it is. If it is printing, it may also be too much info from pc to printer. Does it only do this at certain times or all the time? Try clearing the print jobs memory by printing a small document but click on print icon and choose cancel all print jobs. Wait until it does. Try printing again. Also open notepad as if you were to print it, right click on file and print, and check if printer says ready...indicating it is functioning status. this can help diagnose problems sometimes it will give you an error code or message you need.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams

I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

The paper goes into the automatic sheet feeder on the back of the printer. Please refer to the Lexmark X5250 User's Guide for a more comprehensive instructions on how to use the printer's features and functions.

Hello my printer wont work, the powerbutton is blinking and i hear a tikking noise. is mij printer broken?? lexmark x5250

It could an alignment problem, a paper jam, or something blocking the paper path. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges. While the cover is open, check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier's path. Check any transparent strip(encoder strip) that has become loose from its position. If there's nothing out of the ordinary, close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges and make sure they properly inserted and secured. Close the cover and try to print again.

Whenever I try to print something I keep getting

It's a possible hardware issue in the feeding mechanism. Try to remove the cartridges from the printer then close the cover. Remove the sheets of paper. Unplug the printer from the power source. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the printer to the power source. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Load some paper but don't overload as this may send wrong information to the printer. Have the paper guides lightly touch the sides of the paper, thus avoiding shifting of paper when it feeds. Let it print an alignment page and do some test prints from computer. If problem persists, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

Lexmark x5250 doesn't feed paper??

Is the feeder completely stopped feeding the paper then its hardware issue
you may need it to service however you try these steps :

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.
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.

Printer says clear paper jam. There is no paper jam.

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

We have a Lexmark X5250 All in one. In the last two or three weeks we cannot get it to accept any type of paper. We can put in one or more sheets and when we try to print, we get a notice to load paper....

I have to select -print first then when I get the "load paper" message, turn the printer off . wate a few seconds then turn it back on. I will then feed the paper and print. I may end up replacint the printer.
