This is most likely a paper problem, the paper is basically sticking to the next sheet, Ensure the paper is stored in a cool dry place helps, dont load the paper with more than what you need for a couple of days and when loading the paper flick the pages to allow air between the pages
If this dosnt work try a different brand of paper

I have several Lexmark Optra 312 printers and the issue of multiple sheet feed(s) appears to be a common concern.. In addition to the recommendations already made above, I have had good success by allowing the paper supply pack droop over the rear portion of the printer cover instead of raising the rear printer paper table extension. Curving the paper pack over the rear cover adds additional friction to the the leading sheet of the paper pack, which in turn, tends to keep the multi sheet feed problem to a minimum.

Several sheets entered the printer at the same time and stuck. can't pull them forward or backward.


Step 1 Clear any loose paper from the paper tray. This will help you locate the jam. You will find it either in front, near the paper tray, or in the rear.

Step 2 To clear a paper jam near the paper tray, grip the paper and pull it firmly but gently from the printer. If you find a stack of papers jammed, grab from the middle of the stack and pull.

Step 3 For a rear jam, remove the back of the printer. When you find a free edge on the paper, grip it firmly and pull it out.

Step 4 Replace the back cover. Press the "Resume" button or turn off the printer, and then turn it back on. Your settings should reset.

Step 5 Try printing another document

Front loading page grab problems.


See that top on which to place paper faxing is a green button should be positioned (to the right or left) in position with several sheets drawn as an indicator. I guess yours is positioned on a single paper which means it does not separate anything you ask.
Good luck to configuration

Canon R265 keeps grabbing 6 sheets for printing one sheet


Paper has different thicknesses called Mils. Make sure you are using the correct paper for your printer. Paper that is thinner than is intended for your printer may sometimes cause it to take multiplesheets.

Paper feed grabs more than one sheet


Try fanning your paper several times. Take that nice neat pile of paper in your hands and wiggle it so that your thumb fans through the edge of the whole stack. Do this on both edges so that the stack of paper is slightly less perfect. You can also gently fold the whole stack slightly in both directions. Do this every time you add fresh paper. It should only take a few seconds.

Printing and faxing more than one page at a time


Hi This is a common problem, not only with your printer, but most at some time or other. In part it seems you get what you pay for, in that if you buy premium paper (business grade 40 mil), you normally have less problems. The paper is drawn into the printer by a rubber or compacted foam roller, and sometimes the paper sheets will sick to each other, and more than one will be drawn in. The best thing to do if you are using less expensive paper, or even the expensive stuff, is to "fan" the stack of paper several times with your thumb, at the end that will face the rollers, and also don't let the stack get down to only 3 or 4 sheets, as the problem is worse near the bottom of the stack. Hope this helps. Good Luck!
