    I have a X3470, I fixed the Cover Switch thanks to this site. But now only one side is feeding paper, it states no paper and causes a jam?

    I have the same problem with the x3480. I had the 'open cover' problem which I fixed by taping up the switch at the back but now only one side is feeding and there is a permanent paper jam error.

    So far Lexmark has told me that this is a "rollers are defective since it is not feeding the paper in" issue. After an hour of cleaning, resetting, ect. the paper still jams on load.

#2 works for an x3470, but jostling the small cylinder that accepts the paper (nudge it gently toward the printer) seems to be what pulls back the microswitch...

My lexmark inkjet printer model p4350 requests to clear paper jam. How can i clear it when i still cant identify a paper stuck inside the printer


If you cannot see any paper inside the most likely cause is the microswitch that detects a jam has stuck in the on postion or there is a small bit of paper stuck on it look for the switch and un jam or remove the small bit of paper on it

I have a mac 5 and i want to download the software to intall it to my computer my printer is a lexmark x3470

Are you saying you have a Mac running OSx 5.0 Leopard and you want to install the software for a Lexmark x3470 printer? If so, I do not think this printer is compatible with Mac OSx 5.0 Leopard, but you can give this driver a try.
This very cheap printer seems to have made a lot of people want to take a baseball bat to it with its 'cover open' error, paper jams and other problems. Not only that, the ink cartridges are relatively expensive and run out quickly. I guess the idea is to make and sell the printer as cheaply as possible and make a profit on the ink cartridge sales.
The bottom line on the Lexmark X3470 Multifunction Printer is that this bargain printer is no bargain. Even if you paid about $20-25 for it it wouldn't be good deal. I'd go as far to say that if you got this printer for free with the purchase of a laptop or desktop that you should sell it and buy yourself a decent printer.

My Lexmark X4690 printer keeps telling me there is a paper jam when there is no paper jam. It won't print. How do I solve this?

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Paper jam message

Turn the printer off.
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.
. 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.

Good luck...
