Question about Lexmark E240n Laser Printer

Open Question

Paper emerge with bent corner

Recently, the Lexmark has been printing pages from the main tray with a small bent corner on the upper left side. I checked and double-checked the inside to see if there was an obstruction of some kind, but no luck. If I print to a thicker stock the corner does not get folded over. I'm willing to break the whole thing down, but would like to get ahold of a document that tells me how to do so I don't screw up this otherwise very good printer.

SOURCE: Somebody has messed with the settings and now whenever we print we have to press "Select" for each page

The tray 1 is same as manual tray, it opens in front of you.
normally (in windows) you need to configure printer driver from printers => properties => printing preferences.

SOURCE: when printing duplex document 1st page is upside down

make sure the driver is set to book bind duplex, rather than tablet style which is what it is doing now. Good Luck!

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: Printer problem

Check your paper configuration. Make sure Tray 1 is configured for Plain paper and is showing the right paper size. If it is configured for anything other than Plain Paper, most of your jobs will not print. Also, if the size says something like Univseral, then the printer is not touch that tray unless your print job also specifies Univeral as the size. If is does say Universal, check the paper guide in the tray and make sure it is pointing exactly at the paper size you are using

Hi there!
The message that ask you to manually feed the paper will appear if you have recently printed on a different type of media.
Does this happen from only one application like Microsoft Word? If it does try printing a test page or a document from other application like Notepad or Wordpad.
If the same issue occurs go to the Printers folder (under control panel) then right click on your Brother printer icon, left click on Properties, click on Printing Preferences and make sure that Tray 1 is selected for the tray, Plain paper for paper type. If changes have been made make sure to click on the apply button to apply the changes.
If it only happens to one application like Microsoft Word. Click on File ( or the orb icon on the upper left hand corner) then Print, then Print again click on Printing Preferences and make sure Tray 1 is selected and Plain Paper.
Hope this helps! Thanks

On the older Canon 6085 copier

From my understanding there are two types of NP 6085 copiers. To get into the service menu on the older type you will need to open the doors above the 2 paper trays and look on the right hand side for a small hole. Once you find the hole insert a bent paper clip into the hole to depress a switch. If done correctly you will see an S in the upper left corner of the display. Then hit the following *4*. that will put you into service menu.

Only prints from the MP feeder and not through tray 1 anymore

if your printer only prints from the mp tray this is saying that it no longer recognizes tray one.
the first thing to check is the paper size fingers on the side of the tray. pull the paper tray all of the way out of the printer. there is a snap in plate on the left side of the tray. for letter size paper 2 fingers should be sticking out. if the fingers are present and not broken off. look into the opening that the tray was removed c
from on the left side half way back there will be 4 metal tabs make sure these are even and straight. if both of these are not damaged.remove the logic pack (metal cage behind the left side cover. loosen the 6 screws and remove the out cover. on the inside of this box remove the screw located upper right hand corner, remove the screw in the lower right corner, and the screw from the upper left corner. now one more screw on the back of this box lower left corner remove this screww then pull up on the box and set it aside. at this point you will see the main motor drive in the middle of this side dierictly under the motor you will see a small pcb that is attached with 2 screws ramove these and rfeplace this board it is the paper size select pcb and it needs replaced

Hello i have a lexmark t630 and when it prints out of tray 2 it says change tray two and beeps. It will work normal if you hit the select button. What could it be?

the printer is telling you that the tray is reporting the wrong size paper. print the network menu from tray 2 if it prints out smaller than the page it will be reporting smaller than letter. if the bottom line of the outline is missing its reporting legal size paper. if you are running lettersize paper in the tray check on the left side of the tray half way down the drawer you will see a plastic snap in plate with 3 fingers the bottom 2 should be sticking out for letter size paper. you only have to be one of the small adjust teeth off to make the third finger stick out and report the wrong size paper this is a very common issue. look at the metal fingers that stick out of the frame of the options tray to make sure they are uniform and straight. if the fingers are set right and not damaged then the logic board in the tray assembly will have to be replaced

1320 Printer prints with corner fold

This tells me something is getting caught usually I would recheck the Paper Tray. If possible you could run the paper through the Bypass or Tray One as HP would call it. See if it is happening there if so then you can eliminate the Cassette Trayi

Also Did you run any lables through this Printer ??

Lexmark E 342 n paper jam with error code 201

According to the LexMark support page, this is most often related to not getting the print cartridge assembly properly positioned. (Left and right sides not fully in place). Another possible source is paper in the output tray when using the double sided printing feature. (This leads to grabbing an extra sheet when it tries to retrieve the paper to print the second side. Paper stock thickness will change the number of pages printed before this happens.).

I hope this helps.

How do I copy a document on a lexmark x 1185 printer scanner copier

Turn the documents printed page away from you. (Document facing you, turn it around so that the print is on the backside)

Insert it in the top paper feed tray. Align the left side of the document page, with the alignment bar on the left side of the top paper feed tray. (Put the left side of the paper against the plastic bar on the left side of the paper tray)

Computer running, Windows loaded. Go to Start>Hover your mouse cursor on All Programs>Lexmark>Lexmark Printer

Click on the Copy function, and go to the Properties window to set how many copies you want, (Default setting is 1), what size paper you're using, and so on.

Paper Jam

It sounds like during one of these jams, a piece of paper was probably left over in there and maybe stuck "out of sight" in the paper path causing the paper to pulled to one side.  Look closely, my guess is that it is only a small corner of a page that is stuck in the path.
