Sometimes you will have to clear the printer memory to get rid of this error.

Definintely make sure paper isn't stuck in the tray or rollers or any where else
1) make sure the print job queue is empty.
2) UNPLUG (don't just power off) the printer.
3) leave the printer unplugged for about 3 minutes
4) plug printer back in and try to print again.

Please let me know how this works for you.

I have the exact same problem with my ML-1651N printer. It started out as an annoying problem that i solved by pulling the paper try out and then pushing it back in again. Now that solution doesn't work anymore.

either the carriage board, line sensor, encoder strip, or electronics module are defective. The media sensor would not cause this behavior.

SOURCE: There is NO paper jam- and the paper won't feed.

hi...

Most of our printers pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.

If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):

Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.

try it out....

SOURCE: paper jamb

Typically what I have seen with these printers if they do that it is because there is something blocking the path of the paper. What you can do if you are comfortable with pulling the scanner off!

Is lift the printer and and give it a good shake and what ever is blocking the paper will fall out if not it may loosen it enough so that when put the printer down and take a flash light and shine it down the paper feed area you will be able to see what is there and then pull it out with either a pair of needle noose pliers or your hands it is advisable that you do not take the rest of printer apart because it can cause irreparable damage to the printer if you are not careful.

Also if you have a warranty on the printer you can just call Lexmark and they will either walk you through the same process or they will send you a new printer

Make sure you inserting the paper not deep inside just insert and stop it when you feel any resistance .and try to print something. If it is print then well otherwise you have to show it service center.

Hello info66414,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

You are correct! The Do-hickie is actually called the "Paper Tray Sensor Flag" and it isn't supposed to be dangling down. When it is dangling and won't stay seated, it has been broken by accidental replacement of the paper drawer.
You will have to get ahold of your local Ricoh Repair shop and have them replace this sensor for you. Then it should detect paper properly again.

Have a great day!

The print is great but the printer is curving both ends of the paper up. It seems like its going through too many rollers ?


Hello,
the problem could be in too much moisture on paper. Try to insert new fresh paper or flip upside down the existing paper in cassette.
Also if the paper isn't fixed in cassette by means of paper holders on each side, paper can go loose while pick up and cause corners and scratches.

Also this can happen if something is in paper path, for inspection you need to dismantle half of printer... call service if isn't problem in moisture of paper.

Hello , I think during the firstinstallation I missed something because I do not see colors properly. are very pale. I do not know how to give a general reset.


Perhaps you need to adjust the printer settings in your computer?

Pay special attention to the print quality settings (if Draft mode is default, then you'll get weak colors), and to the paper (media) type - it won't let you print photo quality printouts on plain paper, as normal paper cannot accept too much ink (it would get soaked and colors would blend ugly).

If you put in high quality, expensive photo paper, and in the settings the paper would be set to "plain paper" - you'll get washed out colors on the printout, because the print driver in your system thinks that the paper is ordinary and limits the amount of ink used.

Please come back and leave a rating/testimonial if helped or post a comment for further assistance.

there are many spring loaded switches within a printer that monitor the location of a sheet of paper, it is possible that one of these switches got stuck and is the cause of your problem. Printers can be quite difficult to work on, so I would recommend taking it to a local repair shop to have it looked at. If the switch is simply stuck it may be a quick and easy repair.

Another thing to look at is to make sure all of the rollers that feed the paper through your printer are moving, if one is stuck it could be giving you the same error.

Paper light will not go off


You may have a small jam or a piece of paper that is still inside the printer.  You may have to look for a smaller piece of paper.  I have had this happen to my laser printers before and it was because there was a plastic arm that is inside the printer that came loose during a paper jam and it wouldn't accept paper until I reattached the arm and then the printer would accept the paper.

Printer won't accept paper


What jam code are you getting. I suspect a registration clutch issue. But there should be a code associated with the jam.
I would like to look that up and narrow it down for you.
