Lexmark scanner/printer x5250

I have really liked this scanner/printer although, the paper doesn't feed correctly anymore.  I've looked down it and it seems the little rubber roller thing doesn't grab hold of it.  Can this be fixed?
Thank you very much for any assistance you can offer.

    I've been using my x5495 for only 2 weeks and I have this problem too. I printed 20-30 pages of a heavier stock paper, and in the middle of printing, it told me I had a paper jam. I removed the paper, and from then on, it says I have no paper in the printer. The roller does NOT grab the paper (of any weight) until I push it into the printer and force the mechanism to grab it. Yuck.

Yup rubber feed rollers can be replaced of even try just cleaning rubber with slightly damp cloth to remove paper dust that causes them to slip and not grip and feed paper as they should

Paper feed not working correctly

I just had the same problem, was about to give up, I even had started trying to take it apart to see what was causing this malfunction. I had first followed the user manual under "paper won't load," then I started reading about other people saying that it was something lodged in there, I didn't believe it could be it, but I tried shaking the printer upside down, still nothing, still not working, then the next day I flipped the printer upside down on my lap so that the cover opens facing you, I stuck my hand into where you load the paper, and I shook real hard side to side and up and down, when I lifted it, I saw a small thumb tack on my lap, I couldn't believe it, but it was true, because I had a couple papers tacked up above my printer, not anymore, my printer is working fine now, such a relief because I was not really wanting to buy a another printer right now, though the new lexmark although a bit pricey is enticing with their proclaimed $5 ink cartridges yielding up to 500 page average. Hope this helps you. By the way don't bother trying to take it apart, its a nightmare, I almost ended up damaging it by poking at it with a flat head screwdriver in a desperate attempt to fix it myself. I am lucky right now.

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.

not feed a paper

hey im tuval from israel,
first of all im sorry about my english :)
and now to the point.......
look, if you know where the feeding wheel its good (like elastic material over this wheel) , now take a"nail cleaner" (aceton)
and clean this wheel (the elastic thing), i did thet and the problem is gone!!!
after the cleanning send 15-20 empty doc to print (remember - empty, dont use you ink - you dont have to - save money), if all the paper is out from the printer,
you fix that.

i hope i help you.
hope fore replay.... :)

Lexmark x5250 doesn't feed paper??

Is the feeder completely stopped feeding the paper then its hardware issue
you may need it to service however you try these steps :

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.
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.

You have got two options:
1: Try installing drivers and then assign any folder the status of a folder specifically designed for Photos and then you will get the option for taking a picture from camera or the scanner.(for further details regarding dis option you may leave a comment for me on my blog!!)
2: All the All-in-one printers have special software packages bundled with them especially designed for multi-tasking with scanners. They are made for doing all jobs like Scanning, Printing, Copying etc.

Won't print or copy due to ''paper jam''

the gears in the printer which pulls the paper r either blocked some where or r worn out.and needs replacement.
