Question about Lexmark T644 Laser Printer
The paper jam error 242.13 can be caused by an actual paper jam in the printer but since you did not find any paper the next thing would be pickup rollers. The pickup rollers can become worn and if they don't grap the paper right it will not more from the tray. There is a sensor that tells the printer that the paper exiting the paper tray and to start the printing. If this sensor does not detect paper when it should be there it gives a "paper jam" error thinking the paper is jammed. Look at the top page of paper for 1 or 2 light gray marks. If you see them then the rollers are the problem. You can see the rollers if you turn the printer on its side and remove the paper tray. To test the pickup rollers you can take off the rubber rollers( they look like white rubber band) from the wheel and turn them inside out, this will work as a temp fix untill you can get them replaced. If you need them replaced we can provide them or you can call a local repair show. I hope this helps, if so please rate my solution.

The fuser in the T644 printer has many sensors on it as well and they are prone to getting stuck.9 times out of ten when you have a paper jam error and there is no paper in the printer the issue is in the fuser.if you are using a duplexor or extra tray this adds more chance that one of those sensors are stuck too.
