Paper jam means a paper has got stuck up on your printer. open the printer and see if you can carefully pull the paper that has got stuck up in the printer out. after that try fixing the papers correctly in it right positions. or don't load much papers again. if you know you want to print only a page of work, then try putting on one paper inside. I hope this works for you.
Power the printer OFF and ON. Send the same file to the printer, if file has not been released from the print queue then delete all pending print jobs out of print queue.
Disconnect all data cables and power the printer OFF and ON. If the printer returns to READY, Reconnect the data cable and try printing again. If you are getting a paper jam error, please take not the error code and locate the jam. For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.
You will have to pull hard and evenly to remove the paper. Often, the toner has built up on the fuser rollers, and the paper is actually stuck to the rollers. In that case, you will not be able to get all the paper out, it won't do you any good to remove the paper anyway, because the paper will just jam and stick again. Those rollers will need to be replaced. That is a pretty big, technical job.
Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:
1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Verify that the type of paper specified in the Type is text box matches the type of paper being used. A paper jam might result if photo paper is specified in the Printer Properties dialog box, but plain paper is loaded in the printer.
Hi, Remove the jammed
paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for
tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers
and make sure they are dry. Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and
replug and try a test print. Also make sure that you have waited long enough
for the printer to heat up before giving a print job. Finally, it could be an issue with the paper
sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for
Id there trap door on the back with a tab on it. If it does opuch the tab in and pull the door open and out this is th best way to remove jams. If not there may be a way in the fron f the printer to pull it out pull it jentally so it will not rip and mak it harder to get the remaning piceses out.
1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).
