I don't see a paper jam, but that is the error i keep getting. it will let me print or copy anything. the printer i have is a lexmark x5470

Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that have accidentally fallen into the paper feed area.

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

When i try and print it say's paper jam all the time .

Great job on removing the paper jam and trying it with a different paper. If you have already tried using different media, using 1sheet or multiple sheets on the feeder but still no difference, most probably a mechanism problem in the printer. If this is the case, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. A 6-month old printer shouldn't cause you that much trouble.

Hi :) I'm trying to print on my Canon PIxma- mp480 to no avail

This can be due to a feeder wrong setting on the printer or on your PC: your printer tries to take paper from the back feeder, whereas your paper is on the front feeder....
try to check these settings in your PC and on your printer, and retry to print, hoping this helps

Pixma MP780 paper jam

Sandra, on the feed swich which way is the arrow pointing to the front feeder? or to the back feeder? Get a bright flashlight and inspect the back very carefuly. I had the same problem and found a label off of a shirt inside, don't ask me how it got there I havent a clue. But it did fix the problem. You can also try turning it on and off a few times.

If the arrow is pointing to the front paper feeder then the jam is in the front, if it is pointing to the rear that is where there is a problem. Hope this will help. Leo

I865 flashing 3 times

That's a "paper jam" error that can be fixed by removing all paper and pressing the resume/cancel button. Then replace the paper in the feed chute.
The printer can straighten out a crooked feed to a very limited degree. The photo feeder attachment can interfere with a really full 8x11 feed. The i860 is very susceptible to overfilling the 8 1/2 x11 feeder without notice until you try to print. I usually remove the photo feeder until I need to print photos, and keep the regular paper feeder no more than 3/4 full. I pull out the regular paper when printing photos.

Bulk feeder keeps jamming

It might be the tray Feeder not placed properly or the printer needs a service if not done in the last six months. Contact to your nearby Repair shop and Service centre.

Loading paper from top.

there is a button to press to swap it from the back tray and the bottom tray. it sounds like you might have some thing stuck in the rear feeder causing the paper not to go through. i would try it from the bottom feeder and see if it works,

might be worth turning the machine off and unplug it and then try turning it upside down and shaking the machine, to see if anything come out of it.

If not i would say to take it apart or call a service engineer out.

Hope this helps

Paper Jam feeder

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Turn off the printer. 
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
