Question about Lexmark X6170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Different kind of paper jam....

Good Morning:

My Lex. All in One worked perfectly for almost two years however, a few days ago it began "jamming" ( paper going in about a centimeter) and then stopping. The jam is occuring to the right but I honestly beleive the problem is somewhere underneath to the left ( where I can't get to !!). Note that it is not "grinding" or "eating" the paper- it simply goes so far, crumples on the right and stops while the printer heads continue to move as if there was paper moving thru.
I have been unable to get ANYWHERE with Lexmark support as far as how to take this thing apart. It appears that they have priced their products so that (to them) it's easier to buy a new one than fix the one you have.
If a picture would help, I'd be glad to send one.
Thanks/ G-nome

    Same problem. Tried different papers. Tried holding paper in position so that it would not twist. Tried reaching for roller or whatever provides the friction, but could not get access. Came across this site while looking for a solution.

    I have the exact same problem. Have tried clearing paper jam and restarting, but experience the same thing.

Hello I have an x6170 when I go to print the paper is going in side ways, crumbling the paper. I did not do anything different from before. I tried taking it apart but I do not see any screws or if it is just snap in I would like to see the assembly manual so I can open it...maybe fixing it.
Please HELP

I had a paper jam a few days ago. Turned printer off then cleared jam and when I turned it on again it still had the E3 error code indicating it is still jammed. There is no paper in it anywhere. I have...

Check the paper feed tray for bent papers. Also, try blowing over the sensors to clear any debris. Check for small pieces that may have been left behind. If all fails, unplug it from the outlet, then start it up. Good luck!

Paper jam

Remove back part of the printer. View the printer roller usually in the heater area, if there is still small particles or paper left.

I can only print by manually feeding in each page -HP 4MV Printer

Good old 4MV.
paper jam is just the way the printer i stelling you "something" wrong with paper feed".
you need to locate a "4MV repair kit" , they are not cheap. but, if you wan to keep the printer, it is worth it. cost of the ket is $50
includes Instruction CD rollers, and other repairable parts.

Hp 2015dn paper jam light on solid,won;t print

This is a widely known problem with this printer and means the formatter board needs to be replaced. Save yourself the cost and headache of repairing and move on. The problem initially began as a random situation where I would have to turn the printer off and back on to get it to print.This eventually progressed to the problem you all are reporting which is the amber toner and jam lights on. I replaced the formatter board on mine and after one month the problem returned with the new formatter board needing replaced as well.

Of course, HP acts as if they've never heard of the problem. This company's integrity and quality has gone from number 1 to dead last.

Document jam

I had this totally annoying problem this morning. After looking for any obvious paper jams or small bits of loose paper, I tried several fixes: 1) open front cover, release levers that hold white rollbar in place, roll the bar forward to make sure nothing is stuck behind it, snap levers back in place; DID NOT fix the problem; 2) open top cover, remove print cartridge, look for jammed paper bits, close cover; DID NOT fix the problem; 3) unplug the machine, wait a few minutes, turn machine back on; DID NOT fix the problem. I even unplugged the machine, opened ALL the covers, turned the machine upside down and shake it to see if any paper clips, staples, or other objects have fallen inside the machine; DID NOT fix the problem. FINALLY, I pulled the paper feed tray forward, reached down to the feed rollers, twisted them a few turns, put paper back in the machine, and the "paper jam" message disappeared! This may not work for everyone, but it worked for me today, so I hope this helps someone out there to have a better day.
