Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

That indicates that you have a paper jam in the printer. You can refer to this Quick Reference: http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/e238/eng/qref.pdf. Here's an article in the Lexmark website on How to Clear Paper Jams on a Lexmark E238, E240, E240n, E340, E342n Printer. Click on this link: http://bit.ly/dbahOF. Just read the article thoroughly. If this doesn't help, I suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. Thanks.

Toner light keeps blinking even a new cartridge on my lexmark e238


Sorry for the delay in responding.

Are you using a factory new Lexmark cartridge or do yo have a refilled cartridge or a cartridge from another company?

Lexmark E238 paper jam


Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

I know this has been on here for awhile but i decided to help

First of all the lights are listed in the user manual for the printer. From what your described the problem looks like it is a paper jam

for more information in regards to the lights on your printer:
http://www.fixya.com/support/p306850-lexmark_e232_laser_printer/manual-867/page-52

There is also information on how to get the jam out. If the printer has no jam but the light is still on try restarting the printer.

Check solinoid transformers that controls opening and closing of paper handling trays. Check and clean sensors from in and out of paper path. Check and clean paper rollers or heat rollers for dust and paper remains pieces. Please determine when is the paper jams occurs. Hope this gives you hints.
