Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Tried printing and paper starts to feed but will not continue through printer while it sounds like the printer is printing. When I first tried printing, didn't pull in paper and made a clunking noise. Display said to replace cartridges. I pulled them out and put them back in. Now it pulls the paper in about 2" and stops the feed process, but the printer head is printing (makes the sound like it is).
Any solution on how to get the paper to feed?
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.
