Question about Dell W5300N Laser Printer

3 Answers

Paper Jam When I print from tray 2 it paper jams. It seems to not pick up the paper all the way as it doesn't even really jam it just tries to pick up the paper, doesn't and then displays paper jam error 13.01.00 If I keep clearing it a few times then one page will print out but that's it. So for the last 2 weeks I have had to use the auto feed tray 1.  I am not sure if it's the pick up roller that's worn our or a part that's dirty. But I want to make sure if it's a part that needs to be replaced that I replace the right part.

Re: Paper Jam

Hi Heather,

It is a common problem with this series of printer ( lexmark t-series, optra series, and the Dell 5200 5300). The pickup rollers are worn and not picking up the paper.

Have you checked with Dell to see if it is under warranty? They are very good about their warranty, especially with Printers.

The Feed rollers are part of the maintenance kit, but can also be purchased seperately.

Since the printer is actually manufactured for Dell by Lexmark, I can give you the Lexmark part number for the feed rollers, which are 100% the same as the feed roller for the Dell printer ( even if you order them from Dell, they are a lexmark part ).

The part number is 40X0070.

If you have any doubt that this is the problem, simply move the rollers from tray 1 to tray 2 and visa versa.

If the rollers are totally worn, then tray 1 will no longer pull paper and tray 2 will.

you may also find that the problem will disappear because tray 1 auto compensator has a little more pressure on the paper then tray 2, and thus extend the life of the rollers for now.

the rollers ARE directional though. when you put them on, make sure that you note the arrow direction printed on the plastic.

The tires rotate clockwise on the right side, and counter clockwise on the left side of the pickup assembly. if this is confusing, just remember the tires push the paper towards the front, so imagin the tire in your hand rotating in the direction that will PUSH the paper forward.

Good luck,

Re: Paper Jam

Try cleaning the torque limiter it is located on the paper try behind the feed roller. Remove the feed roller and you will see it behind it. Slide the torque limiter off and take off the end that does not have long part sticking out. Then you would see the metal shaving around it. The torque limier is a magnet so just pinch off some of the metal shavings not all of of them though. And then put everything back together. If that doesn't not work try repalcing the paper feed assembly.

Re: Paper Jam

We need to the model/make to help you

but using some detective skills I've decided you are using a HP machine

Yup Dirty damaged worn feed roller but what model machine is it they are all different but pull out tray 2 cassette all the way and look in, there is probally a cylinder like rubber roller 5cm wide front centre of where cassette slides in, there might be roller on the cassette too at the front center as well.

Most modern printers feed rollers just slide off after lifting small plastic tabs on them and gently pulling, feed rollers are available but you can sometimes also get results by cleaning them with a dash of metho or water on a rag.

If paper feeds 2wo sheets at once then you need to change the seperation pad/roller too.

Error 241.1 Paper Jam. I have reseated the tray

Brand New T652n lexmark printer get a paper jam every time! just opened and haven't been able to print one paper. Doesn't matter if you print from tray one or tray two. It gets stuck right after the rollers pick it up and try to send it to the toner. Any suggestions? I've tried to reseat the toner, plain paper, sized the paper correctly, I've tried just about everything I can think of! I can feed paper manually through the top tray, and it will print. But, just using the manual tray defeats the purpose of the other two trays. Anyone else having this issue?

It is sying i have a paper jam but there is no paper in it

There are two types of paper jams:

1) A jammed piece of paper at or near a sensor. Or a shred of paper is stuck under a sensor.
2) A paper feed operation that does not send paper into the printer will get reported as a jam it the paper does not reach a sensor in the time that is allotted to reach the sensor. The printer knows that the page is late and suspects a jam occurred prior to the sensor.
To determine if there is a “Pick” problem in the tray, place a mark (line or scribble) on the top sheet in the paper tray. Send a print operation to the printer. If a jam is reported, check the tray. If the marked page is still in the tray then you know the paper pick failed.
There are dozens of reasons for paper to fail to pick. The simplest fix to try is to remove the paper and fan it to remove any possible static charge causing the paper to stick together.

Paper jam ,no paper jam found Dell 1815dn

give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. 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.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.

alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Paper Jam at 2

Its probably not picking up paper from that tray, thus the jam error. For me that is typically because the tray isn?t pushing the paper up high enough to be caught by the pickup roller or the pickup rubber band is worn.
