The paper feed tires under the printer are glazed up this happens with use you can use a rubber restorer such as fedron to recondition the tires or you can contact lexmark via their web site to see if you can buy parts thru them and just order the paper feed tires.

Thanks for the advice! It WAS the feed tires, and we were able to take them off and turn them inside out.

SOURCE: paper feed won't pick up

The paper pick up fingers and rollers get smooth and polished with use and then slide on the paper. Clean the rollers and pick mechanisms with isopropyl alcohol to rejuvenate them and restore their grip on the paper. Do this as far along the paper path as you can get, using Q Tips where necessary and turn the rollers to clean their whole surfaces.

    SOURCE: Lexmark X85 won't feed paper. When trying to

    There could be something in the paper feeder that's blocking the paper path. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

    1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

    2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

    3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

    4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

    5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

    6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

    7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

    8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

    Mx2600n is having paper jam BTW the black and white roller before the Fuser unit

    There are a number of reasons why the paper would jam at registration. First off, if the paper is completely flat & straight it is probably a feed issue or paper detect issue. There are 2 little black photo reflectors before the rollers in the centre of the feed path. These sensors can get covered with paper dust & may need cleaning. Also try feeding paper from the manual feed tray & see if it jams. If you have jams from both cassette's & manual feed then its most likely a sensor of feed issue. If its from one tray only then the sensors in the vertical path may be dusty with paper dust or worn pick up & feed tyres. There is also an issue with the feed clutches in the paper pick up drive unit which can fail & have been upgraded.
    Secondly, if the paper is Z folded at the registration rollers but before the fuser then it could be the primary bed drive gear. This gear also drives the secondary belt unit located in the right hand door assembly.
    Hope this helps.

    Canon Mp550 paper jam

    If the paper is not being picked up from the tray assembly try applying mild soap to a soft cloth and clean the paper pick up rollers. Do not use rubbing alcohol because it will dry the rubber out so later they won't pick up at all

    Paper feed issues when there is no Paper jam. All the rollers move when the printer tries to feed paper. It'll feed about and inch and a half of paper and then stop showing a Paper Jam.

    85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers . The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

    Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.

    If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

    Thanks, Joe

    Error code 31 on a konica royal 1500 ''paper mishandled''.

    Have you replaced the paper pick up & paper feed & paper sep. rollers? Also, have you cleaned the paper pick up clutch? The reason it works with the manual feed is that it is not used as much. Also, have you cleaned the rollers with wd-40 or simple green and did it work better, if so you need new rollers. Good Luck

    The paper tray is a non-repairable item. HP replaces them outright.
