Printer showing error message ...."printing


This means that your machine has received a print job that is teling it to print on paper that is loaded or supposed to be loaded in the bypass feed tray. You will either need to delete the print job using the operation panel or simple load some letter size paper in the bypass tray over on the right side of the machine.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

The papaer is not feeding well on both sides therefore it sticks during printing.The right side of the paper feeds quickly and stiks. I have a dell all in one A940 Thanks Undine Wooding


looking at the pictures i would say the paper feeds in from the top turn the printer upside down and shake it there could be something fallen in there and is cause the paper not to feed on the one side.

Paper feeds to the right and Jams


Sounds to me like there is something in the paper chanel, a staple, paper clip or something small enough to get in there. Have you tried turning the printer upside down and lightly tapping the side to see if anything falls out?

Lexmark X5495 Feeds paper in part of the way


I own this printer, it has to do with how you load the paper, it's very touchy, just keep readjusting the paper and you will get it right, you don't want the paper to far into the printer, or you will get a paper jam error, but if it's not in far enough it will sound like it's printing but not feeding the paper. Hope this helps, Julia

Paper jam


Hi divvy123, this is as follows.

E23 Paper feed error.
You may have to look very carefully for paper still in the printer where it feeds.
Also, the paper will press on a switch to tell the printer that there is paper present.
Another thing to check would be paper alignment.
Please let me know if this helps.
If not I will help you get an answer.

Paper not feeding


Is this a top feed - that is paper loaded on top at the back bottom feed from a tray underneath? Top feed take one sheet of paper and gently push it down whilst the printer is trying to grab it. Tray feed - take tray out make sure no paper fragments are in the tracks and find a nail board and gently abrade the pick up rollers.
