Problem with my LEXMARK E232

The original problem was that the printer would not properly pick up paper from the second tray when paper in the first had ended. What can I do or what hasn't done.

Set both trays to correct paper type and  size on printer, also look at settings in print driver on pc (printers and faxs /  right click on lexmark driver and properties check all settings.

Lexmark E232, keeps telling me paper tray is empty even though it has paper in the tray, then it just keeps clicking instead of picking up the paper and feeding into the printer? Please help

Go the Lexmark website and search on support for their telephone number. I've always had a experience with their support team even if the printer is out of warranty.

The "add paper light" is on even though the paper

The light means that the printer is out of media, or the media did not feed properly

What you can do

-Load media into tray and press Continue button to resume printing.

-Check that the media is loaded correctly in tray

-Press Cancel button to cancel the print job.

Lexmark E232 - the paper roller does not drop to pick up paper. I have to manually hold the red switch on the bottom left of the printer to get the roller to drop down.

You may need to replace the pick assembly of your printer. Here's the part number:40X4731

My printer does not pick up the paper sheets from the paper tray.When I took paper sheet in to slot it works.

Well - I don't know if this will solve it (since there could be many causes) but it worked for me.

1 - Remove Paper Tray
2 - look at rubber rollers in printer undercarriage
3 - carefully remove "rubber bands" from roller
4 - turn rubber bands inside out and carefully return to rollers

5 - remove toner cartridge
6 - remove print drum assembly
7 - return printer drum assembly and toner cartridge

the roller trick helps the printer pick up paper
the toner/print drum trick helps reseat the inner workings of the printer correcting any misalignments that impede paper flow

Frequent jam in Lexmark E232

This can happen a lot if you're using very light weight paper.  Also, if the paper is not flat it can jam up too.  Best thing you can do is get yourself some higher quality paper and keep it in a air tight tub after you open it.

The problem sounds like your rollers have lost their grip. Remove the paper tray and tip the printer up. Push the red lever on the left of the printer down and you will see the feed mechanism with two wheels. Remove the rubbers on the wheels and turn them inside out. Replace them on the wheels with the worn side now inside and the 'sticky" side out. You should get at least another couple of years worth of use before you need to replace them.

Doesn't recognise draw full of paper.

I had exactly the same problem. It is caused by the paper feed rollers becoming shiny and failing to get a grip on the paper. The cure is easy. Disconnect the cables, remove the paper tray and turn the printer upside down. Carefully peel off the two rubber 'tyres' on the ends of the feed roller, turn them inside out, and refit them. Reassemble the printer and it should work perfectly. Obviously, you can only do this once......!
