SOURCE: feeds paper crooked

Lexmark printers are hyper sensitive to dust..It might be causing this problem...Take a cotton swab dip it in alcohol and press it against the roller whilw pressing the paper feed button....
If this doesn't work you should try a longer procedure...Remember you have to look real hard..
It's possible that the paper may be running into a foreign object and not feeding in at all. A foreign object could also cause the paper to stall, or even feed-in crooked. Remove all the paper and use a flashlight to look carefully into the paper feed-in area. Look for a pen, pencil, push pin, paper clip, candy, etc. If you can't see anything, then actually pick your printer up and turn it so the paper opening is facing down and shake it a little, side to side. Your trying to dislodge anything that might be stuck in the paper entrance area. If nothing falls out, then turn it back over and use the flashlight to once again look inside that area. Sometimes you'll see an object that may have moved over into view while you were shaking the printer. Any foreign object might block the paper from actually being able to move forward, so then the printer thinks there is no paper installed. You may have to even remove the Top Cover to be able to get a better view of that paper feed area. Unfortunatly, just removing that cover is not always that easy, especially on the newer printers. You may need a Service Manual for reference, disassembly and troubleshooting. I have not checked, but you can normally find Service Manuals for most printers, at www.2manuals.com (most Service Manuals can usually be downloaded for around $10 +/- ). Even if there is not a foreign object stuck in that area, with the top cover off, you might just possibly see what the problem is and even be able to correct it..

SOURCE: when i try to print anything, i get a message 241 paper jam,

this is most likely to be worn pick up rollers. these are the two rubber wheels that you can see underneath the printer when you remove the tray. you should be able to source these from a local suplier and are very easy to fit. just make sure your gentle with the clip that holds them in place as if they break then you will need to buy a whole new pick up assembaly which is significantly more expensive.


hope this helps

SOURCE: paper does not feed into lexmark X5470 all in one printer

Rollers could be worn out. Also could be a problem with the paper sensor. Not sure what type of sensor this printer uses. Some just use a pressure switch, others use a light sensor.

Paper feed problem from both tray 1 & 2


There is a long set of sensor flags on the bottom of the paper input unit that can get stuck and not move freely. This will cause jams from both trays. Try unplugging the printer, removing the toner cartridges and tray 2. Turn the printer on its back or side. You will see a long, black plastic bar with flags on it that runs the length of the paper input unit. make sure it moves freely.

Paper jam


This video explains how to resolve a recurring paper jam on your product. It sounds like the rollers on the rear access door may not be working properly and are making jamming the paper as it starts to feed up into the printer? Check the rollers on your rear access door and see if they have some give in them and roll freely.

PAPER JAM


The problem sounds like your rollers have lost their grip. Remove the paper tray and tip the printer up. Push the red lever on the left of the printer down and you will see the feed mechanism with two wheels. Remove the rubbers on the wheels and turn them inside out. Replace them on the wheels with the worn side now inside and the 'sticky" side out. You should get at least another couple of years worth of use before you need to replace them.

Paper Jams and Margin Incorrect


Check the humidity of your paper, type and weight. Nothing more than 32# will run through the tray, any heavier should go through the bypass to prevent jamming. Margin follow the internal tutorial for moving your margins. Xerox machines do skew 3 degrees left for some reason or the rollars that feed from tray 2 need to be changed.
