Follow these instructions to remove and/or avoid paper jams and misfeeds in your Lexmark X3500, X4500, X4600 & X4800 Series All-In-One.

Paper or specialty media misfeeds
These are possible solutions if paper or specialty media misfeeds or skews, or if multiple sheets feed or stick together.
Try one or more of the following:

  • Load paper with the print side facing you. (If you are not sure which side is the printable side, see the instructions that came with the paper.)

Remove each page as it is printed

  • Remove each page as it exits, and let it dry completely before stacking.

Adjust the paper guides

  • When using media less than 8.5 inches wide

  • To rest against the edges of the paper or media, making sure it does not buckle

Error code H5-01 how to fix on a sharp arm350u


That is a repeated uncleared jam in the paper transport. You may have a piece of paper wrapted in the fuser that you cant see, or one of the sensors on the transport between the paper feed and fuser are dirty.
You can try entering doagnostics, you press P * C * or # * C*, that will put the machine in diagnostics. Then press 14, then enter 1 then press enter. That will reset the machine, If the 14 routene doesnt work look for an uncleared jam or clean sensors.

Here is what it says.

Printer mispick


Hi ,
The print engine has failed to pick up a piece of media.There is a paper jam in the printer's paper path. Reload the paper in the paper input tray; verify that there are no jams in the paper path, and press MENU/ENTER to continue the job. If the error persists, replace the printer pickup roller. Check paper path, including rear output door for jams, fuser area, and under the print (toner) cartridge.

Infoprint 1634 repeatedly jams


It may be time to replace the Fuser.

There is no certified way to repair a Fuser with purchasable parts, the assembly it self must be replaced.

Paper feeder


You probably is working with paper excessively wet. Even when you cannot detect the moiture can be present in the paper. Try to use a paper dryer (there are for sale in computers stores). Dont use to leave the sheets in the printer when you are not printing, leave them in the dryer.
