It seems there is a possibility of a problem with the printer itself, or perhaps the cartridge. You should first self-test the printer. Since we are unsure where the problem exists, we must do eliminative troubleshooting to rule out parts of the printing system. The self-test allows us to rule out software and the cable by testing the hardware by itself. Please note that this is not a "fix," but rather a diagnostic test to determine if your hardware is at fault.

Please begin by disconnecting the power supply from the wall (not the back of the printer) for at least "30 seconds." Then plug the printer back in.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
2. Press the “Menu” button once.
3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.
5. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Tools: Maintenance”.
6. Press the check button once. The screen with read “Maintenance: Ink Levels”.
7. Press the right arrow button until the screen reads “Maintenance: Print Test Page”.
8. Press the check button once. This will start the Self-Test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop. The test is not continuous.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either a solid black or solid color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with only a color cartridge installed (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed). If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues - we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

SOURCE: HOW TO REFILL LEXMARK X5495 PRINTER

When you try refilling your ink cartridges, you are taking chances that something may go wrong. I would search the web and purchase re-manufactured ink cartridges, which would be less expensive than the new ones from Lexmark.

SOURCE: paper jam

I have had this problem with other printers. What I did is to take a sheet of Card Stock 8.5" x 11" , putting it in the Feed and push the print button while applying a small amount of pressure on the card stock. Sometimes a small piece of paper gets in the path way and indicates a paper jam. Could be another problem that is causing the jam indication. Worth a try. Bud

SOURCE: 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.

Sounds like you just need a new printer. Some times the encoder wheel can get dirty with aerosolized ink and it will start to skip lines. The encoder wheel is a small plastic wheel on the paper feed of your printer. Around the edge of the wheel are hundreds of small thin black lines. As paper goes through the printer it counts these lines as the wheel turns to know how far to push the paper. If ink or debris gets between the lines over time it can start counting two lines as one and thus advance the paper too far, causing blank space between prints. See the below picture of a printer encoder wheel for reference. My professional opinion is to not purchase Lexmark. New Canon printers are very reliable with a high quality output, look for one that uses CLI-221 cartridges. Or most any HP.

Try removing the cartridges from the printer. Close the cover. Remove the sheets of paper. Unplug the printer from the power source. Replug after 30 seconds. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Load some paper, don't overload. Try printing again. If problem continues, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem. You may be having a hardware problem.

Disconnect, turn upside down and shake. It works. This was told to me from lexmark and I am now printing with no problems.

Lexmark X5495 - useless


I've had a problem like this before too, it's was down to two things which might be the same for you!
1) Is your printer plugged into a Power Surge Protector? if so then remove it from that and plug it into a normal plug, the surge protector sometimes doesn't allow the correct amount of power to reach the printer which causes an issue.
2) Your paper feed rollers, I had to clean mine with white spirt to remove the paper dust from the rollers, once done feeds paper everytime since!

If this has helped you then please rate me!

Lexmark does not allow refilled cartridge on any of their products.

Lexmark, HP and Canon and-many other vendors use proprietary code to protect themselves against the damage of OEM inks.

All companies will void warranties.

Lexmark X5495 Feeds paper in part of the way


I own this printer, it has to do with how you load the paper, it's very touchy, just keep readjusting the paper and you will get it right, you don't want the paper to far into the printer, or you will get a paper jam error, but if it's not in far enough it will sound like it's printing but not feeding the paper. Hope this helps, Julia
