Re: Lexmark X73 print/paper problem

Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.

Printed copy will not feed out line by line and finally will not feed the printed page. How to get it to work properly?

There could be something blocking the paper path that's not allowing the paper to not go all the way through the feeder. Try to open the printer and access the cartridge area. Remove the cartridges. Check for any foreign objects blocking the paper path. Rebrick your printer by removing the power adapter (black box found on the back of your printer where the power cord is plugged in) and then re-plug after 30 seconds. When your printer turns back on, re-insert your cartridges. Then try print your document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Feed system Problem Lexmark x73

More possible for printer not feeding is paper jump, and stock up jump sensor, look hook type near roller sensor mechanism if still free in move, or if dirt, then try to feed paper manually and look for any obstruction.

My computer says that my printer is offline.

Please follow the steps given below to perform a self test on the printer:

1. Switch off the printer.
2. Press and hold down the paper feed button.
3. While keeping the paper feed button depressed, turn the power back on.
4. When the printer starts to print, release the paper feed button.
5. When the first page is printed, switch off the power (otherwise the printer will keep on printing).

Problem w/printing

Try this first:

Turn off the printer and unplug it. Open the paper jam door and give the paper roller a gentle push forward until it clicks. This is a simple reset of the paper feed. Close the door, plug your printer back in and turn it on.
I hope this works for you. If it does not we may need to reinstall the driver. Please let me know. Thanks!

Lexmarkx73 Won't feed paper through while printing

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.

Won't print

Sounds like a piece of paper is stuck inside the machine. Open all access doors and check. Remove the printer cartridge and reinsert. Make sure the print job has been purged from the queue.
