Paper jams in printer

I have a lexmark 2500 all in one printer I,ve used it for about a year withthe same ink and paper combo with no problems.then last week the printer began pulling the paper in crooked.I feel that the inside of the printer maybe dusty or dirty but I have no idea how to go about cleaning it out. If this is not likely the problem what could it be?

SOURCE: Lexmark 4300 not loading paper correctly

Look down the paper feed into the printer you will see one white plastic roller. Find a cotton bud and soak the end in methylated spirits and poke it down and wipe the roller. make sure you wipe the whole circumference of the roller. This removes any grease that has come off the paper onto the roller and allows the roller to grip the paper better. I have done this once and have not had a recurrence of the problem.

I've got a 4 by 6 photo paper jam in my Lexmark S405 all-in-one printer.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Try to reach for the paper jam.

3. If paper jam can't be reached, open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. You may be able to get a better hold of the paper jam in the cartridge area.

4. Remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave any torn piece of paper in the printer.



When paper jam is clear, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Will not load paper,when it does it prints for ****.how do you check ink cartriges


Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges. Close the printer cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power outlet in the wall to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges. Load some paper and try to print again.

To check the ink levels using your computer, Click Start menu > Programs or All Programs > Lexmark 2500 Series > select Lexmark Solution Center. In the main dialog screen, the ink levels are displayed.

I have Lexmark x85printer. Bought new Ink Cartages. Printer Will not Feed Paper All I get is paper jam Clear paper


Either the ink cartridges are incorrectly inserted, and block the paper path jamming the paper, or the paper drive roller got slightly out of kilter when replacing the ink. Sometimes, powering down the printer, manually moving (gently) the printer head halfway from home position, closing the printer and powering it on will clear a roller problem (never tried on a Lexmark, though. It works on Epsons and HPs). If the head doesn't move, though, don't force it. Try instead taking out the ink cartridges and putting them in again, without forcing, and gently wiggling them until they click in place.

If you get the message without any paper in the printer, check the insides for any scrap of paper which could have lodged in the sensors.

Also, verify there is no paper elsewhere in the paper run (paper out tray, etc.). Sometimes the "paper jam" message is a sort of "catch-all" error.

Will not shut down/ paper constantly jams. makes grinding sound


I had a 7170 series that gave similar, not quite as bad as yours, problems. Lexmark is a good name quality all in one. But, I believe it's time to upgrade. These rollers and drums are very easily put out of sync. And from there on you'll have nothing but troubles. The scanner situation is probably forming a very light coat of rust on the out rail and causing it to hang up. I honestly wouldn't put much more money or stress(your own) into this machine. Thanks, Dana.

What should I do if my Lexmark X 1270 keeps on paper jamming?


To solve the printing problem..


# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.

Paper jams


It has nothing to do with cartrigdes. You have an undetected paper jam. You need a pair of tweezers and a torch and need to play lets find the nasty small hard to see bit of paper or ujo (unidentified jamming object) i had a piece of toddler toy cardboard so small once i had to remove it from my roller with a pair of tweezers so don't laugh at me!!! Good luck. Make sure you look everywhere, including inside unit, and down the back where paper goes too. Cheers.
