Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Lexmark all-in-one printer which I've had less than 2 months, began making a horrible noise and perforating the right side of paper.

I recently bought a Lexmark X5450 all in one printer. After 2 months of use it makes a horrible noise and perforates the right side of the paper.

Hi, If you are having this kind of problem so soon after buying the machine I would take it straight back and either get a replacement or a different machine altogether.

Where do i put envelopes in a lexmark X6570

Loading envelopesYou can load up to 10 envelopes at a time.
Warning: Do not use envelopes that have metal clasps, string ties, or metal folding bars.

1 Load envelopes in the center of the paper support with the stamp location in the upper left corner.
2 Make sure:
• The print side of the envelopes faces you.
• The envelopes are designed for use with inkjet printers.
• The paper guides rest against the edges of the envelopes.

• Do not load envelopes with holes, perforations, cutouts, or deep embossing.
• Do not use envelopes that have exposed flap adhesive.
• Envelopes require more drying time. Remove each envelope as it exits, and allow it to dry to avoid ink smudging.

Error message to "Load Paper"

Push something thicker than a plain sheet of paper through. Cut a side of a manilla folder into a 8.5"x11" and let the printer try to grab it during a copy. After doing it's normal "grab the right side until it's skewed and stop", continue to try to push it through.

Hi, my x6575 prints with vertical perforated lines down the center, how do I get it off?

It could be because of the paper type you are using. Try to use a different type of paper and check if "perforated lines" still appear. If problem happens to all types of paper that you've tried, please don't hesitate to contact Lexmark technical support for additional assistance.

My lexmark is connected to my pc, my ink is more or less full it is making all the right noises for printing but the paper comes out blank...........please help its a lexmark 12

Try to re-seat your ink cartridges by removing it from the printer. Then unplug and replug your printer into the power source to reset. When the printer turns on, reinsert your cartridges and make sure they're properly secured. Let it print an alignment page. Or try to print again. If still nothing is printed, your cartridge nozzles may need some cleaning. This article in the Lexmark website will give you steps on how clean the cartridge nozzles: How to Maintain the Print Cartridges on the Lexmark All-In-One Printers

Copier making loud noise

Remove the drum/toner unit and close the top,...does it still make the noise? If so, there is a paper jam in the fuser section (left side)
I also have a Canon PC900 series copier....mine does not have the automatic document feeder, however the machine is the same....If the noise persists, you will probably need to replace the Fixing (fuser) Unit drive gears (worst case senerio) perhaps you can locate the jam in the fuser and "carefully" remove without damaging the Fixing Belt....good luck

Grinding noise when printing and cuts paper

There may be something stuck in the area of the perforation, like a paper clip, paper debris or some foreign material. I would look in that area with a flashlight and see if there is something in the Paper feed roller area.Something may have come loose if you had a paper jam. Let me know.

Lexmark C510 Laser Printer- Grinding Sound on startup and while printing

Thank you Krissy! I had the same problem with the horrible grinding noise.

I took out all of the toners and the photo developer and noticed that my Blue toner was leaking all over. After reading your post, I tried replacing the toner. It worked!!! No more noise - and no more mess!

Printer feeding paper uneven and jamming

to be honest mate I am quite gutted myself before I purchased the p4350 I had an x1130, similar printer ie, all in one which lasted for about 3/4 years..but it recently stopped feeding paper. ie.. feeds it in on the right hand side and then gets stuck.. same problem. so I decided to replace it and purchased the p4350.. as i thought the problem was a one off!! But oh no.. i AM VERY SURPRISED THAT AFTER ABOUT A MONTH this printer has done the same thing!! I am hapy yours is too as i know it is not something I am doing wrong!! I can't personally find a solution to the problem. luckily I can replace it easy enough because I got a replacement cover out on it... BUT I won't be changing it for another lexmark! and I am just going to email Lexmark now as their paper feeding mechanism seems very poor as many other people are experiencing the same problems with different Lexmark printers!!
