Did you check the different voltages coming (or should come) out of the power supply?
When a display works, will not implicate the power supply is working correct. It is too long ago I worked with these kind of printers, but I don't think the stepper motors need a capacitor. The caps can be defect, and can cause the loss of one or more output voltages.

SAME PROBLEM LEXMARK X2350 STARTS FEED PAPER AND PRINTER HEAD MOVES AS PRINTING BUT WILL NOT FEED PAPER WHILE PRINTING? ARE THERE 2 FEEDERS IN THIS PRINTER? HOW TO FIX?


transfer roller that starts the paper and feed that feed the paper. have you had a paper jam and torn a piece of paper off inside the feed mech? i dont remember if this one feeds off the motor or a belt. either way you would have to disasemble the printer to determine where the problem lies. might be more econimical to replace the printer.

Black ink is faint


First I would suggest performing any head alignment functions with your printer's menu to be sure you have the stepper motor feed adjusted properly. Use the paper you are currently printing on for this procedure so that the thickness of that paper is factored in.
If you stil see the banding after doing this, you can use the Advanced Media Control button under Printer Settings in ColorBurst to fine-tune the paper feed adjustment. Print out the "Media Advance.tif" target (located in the ColorBurst/images & Targets folder) to use as a guide. For white bands, you'll need to enter a negative number (to shorten the paper feed).

Cartridge jam in my Kodak EASYSHARE Series 3


The print head must be in the up position to remove the cartridge. If you cannot get it to do this by pushing buttons or unplugging the unit, you can do it by turning a gear inside the unit. This requires partial disassembly of the unit.

First remove two screws from back of unit, then pull up on top of unit, unplug two ribbon cables from circuit board and remove top. Then unplug two remaining ribbon cables from circuit board, and three screws holding circuit board. Lift circuit board and fan/fan-holder as one piece. You do not need to disconnect the fan wires.

The print head heat sink and carrier frame are now visible (large aluminum piece in the center). The gears and stepper motors are on the side opposite from the green cartridge release button. The gears near the front operate the paper feed mechanism. The gears in the back move the print head. By turning the large white plastic gear farthest toward the side and rear (driven by a stepper motor), the print head will move up and down. The gear should turn easily by pushing on the teeth with a small screwdriver. If it starts tuning harder, it is probably at the end of its travel. Turn the gear until the print head is up far enough to release the cartridge. There is a tab on the print head frame just above the green release button on the inside of the unit. When the print head is up, there is a space between the tab and the green button allowing the button to be released.

If you need more visibility, the entire printer frame can be removed from the plastic outer shell by removing 3 screws on the bottom of the unit. Note the position of the loose plastic piece in the front of the unit (for reassembly). It has a small tab that keeps the front door closed. You can leave the print head in the up position when reassembling the unit. It will automatically reposition when the unit is plugged in. Don't forget to put in a cartridge before plugging in.

Paper will not feed into printer


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
