Question about Brother Multi-Function Center MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a lexmark 5400 series printer. It keeps getting a paper jam- we have tried various methods from the manual to fix it....but its still happening. Please help.
As several previous posts said there was a pieces of paper folded up inside. Per a previous post remove the sheet feeder rack. At this point I removed the two outside screws (of the three) on the backe. After this the whole top lifts about 3/4 inch (19mm) to give your fingers more room to clear it. Looks like she will print another day.
Thanks for the tips on here.

I'm having the same problem on the Lexmark 5400. Will print in black and white and copy in color. Any suggestions?

I did it. I did it. You have to put ALOT of paper into the printer. It needs heavy paper to make that lever move. Just try it.

For the jam check the guides under the hood, push the clips in and use a small light to look into the paper feeder area, there are two black "clips" or guides on a spring loaded lever, on my printer one guide let go and the paper kept feeding on one side only and jamming. hope this helps

I installed a new color cartridge in my Lexmark 5400 Series printer and now I cannot get my computer to reconize the color, only black & white. I can copy in color though. Can you help me? Thanks

it may not be able to take the type of paper you're trying to feed.
try cleaning the pick-up tires with alcohol and clean paper, if it picks up the tires are worn and need to be replaced, if not you will have to do it on the glass.

Probably a jam sensor is dirty or stuck. Look through the paper path for a stuck plastic sensor arm, or dirt or paper dust on photocell typr sensors.Paper sensors are normally located near where paper feeds, and where it exits the machine. The paper must pass over these sensors as it travels through the machine.If a scrap of paper is left on the sensors, they will report it as a jam. If you can, try manually pushing a sheet of paper through the printer, ONLY in the direction it normally feeds. This may free up a stuck sensor arm, or force out the jammed scrap.

The kind of paper you use on the printer really matters as it detrmines a lot whether the printer will jam or not. When removing the jammed paper simply try to slide it out by using your hand to pull out the jammed paper. The weight as well as density of a paper can be a means of it. Definitely try regulating a heavier class paper that's a smallest of twenty-four Lbs.
Then check the rubber that rolls the paper in the direction of printing. If it is loose or worn out, the printer will continue to jam until it is fixed.
Check the blue dial in the paper drawer to see if it is set to the correct paper size. LTR means the paper is sitting in the drawer straight up and down. LTR-R means the paper is lying sideways in the drawer. When these dials are incorrect it can cause the machine to jam or give false jams.
Hope this helped. Goodluck Elect_Comp
