I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help

There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

My printer isnt feeding paper in straight and it keeps on jamming and saying that there isnt any paper.. is there anything i can do to esay fix it???

Check the following steps for fixing Hp Carriage Jam Error :

Open the print carriage access door. Check for any packing material that may be blocking the internal components. Check for an orange shipping lock that may still be in place on the left side. Pull the shipping lock out, if present, and discard.

Remove and reinstall the cartridges to make sure they are properly installed. Lift the front center of the print carriage access door to open it. Lift the door up until it locks into an open position. Press down on a print cartridge and allow it to spring back up. Lift the cartridge out of the printer. Do the same for the other cartridge. Slide the black cartridge into the slot on the left and the color cartridge into the slot on the right. Press down on each one to lock it into place. Lower the print carriage access door.

Check the print cartridges to make sure the protective tape has been removed from the ink nozzles. Remove the cartridges from the printer. Remove any tape or labels. Replace the cartridges into the printer.

Push in on the tab on the left side of the clean-out door on the back of the printer to open the door. Lift the door out of the printer. Check for any paper jams. Jammed paper can block the printer cartridge carriage from moving. Pull any jammed paper out.

My printer keep saying clear carriage jam but there isnt anything that is still jamed. How do i fix this problem . I can't get it to work now

The printer is telling you that something is jamming the printer carriage, or the rod, that the print cartridges ride on. Open your printer up to where you would install your print cartridges, either front load or top load. See if you can find anything in the path of its movement.
Remove it, and try printing again.
Look for paper that may have jammed recently in the printer.
If that doesn't fis it, try moving the printer cartridge holder manually and then try to clear the message again.
Hope this helps.....

Says there is a paper jam everytime i try to print


Check within your paper feeder rollers there might be something stuck inside it like paper clips, coins or anything small and solid. If you can find way to open the printer without braking it, that would be nice.

Hope this helps.

Turned it on and it says paper jam. There is no

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Paper continually jams

What is the error code from page 69 and 70 of the E-232 manual?
Here is the webpage to download anything that you may be missing. The manual has a very complete section on complete clearing of jams.

Paper jam 11

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Turn off the printer. 
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
