You should be able to unplug the printer and remove the back panel. If you clean the rollers on the back and on the panel with a damp cloth it may start the paper feed again.

I just got new ink today for my Lexmark X1270 today. Now, though, my printer( When you are looking straight at it) will take the paper onto the right sige and cram together. What should I do?

When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or stickyrollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces ofpaper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these piecesof paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper tonot feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

My printer will not print. I have cleaned it, and you can just barely see what I have printed. Does it need a ink roller?

This thing doesn't use ink. It uses thermal transfer onto the paper. Meaning it burns the letters onto the paper. You probably got bad paper cartridge or wrong brand. Try inserting a new cartridge.

Hi I've got an epson stylus dx4400 printer. The printer is a little strange because two of the ink cartridges are reading full, even though one of them is completley empty and the other is about a quater...

There is no sensor that reads actual quantity of the ink in the printer. The measurements are based on calculations how many pages are printed and what has been printed after last ink cartridge replacement. Probably the printer has been tricked that there is a new ink cartridge, but there is the old one.
Often a small object can fall in the paper tray and go down the paper path, preventig paper from picking up and moving. Rotate the printer with the front side up and try with thin and long flat skrewdriver to rise the thin long rollers that hold the paper to the feed roller, one after another. These rollers are held there by springs. If someting is stuck behind them, it should fall down. I've found there coins, pensils, rullers, paper-clips and so on.

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.

Paper wont feed into printer no paper jam

In the comments section Blumm suggests pushing a piece of cardboard (like the back of a legal pad) through the feeder as far as you can. Turn the printer off and then on again with it in there. Pull the cardboard out and check for any foreign objects that have been pushed through.
It worked for many people including myself - I got a piece of plastic and it works wonderfully again!

Epson aculaser c1100

What you hoovered off is the developer. This is required by the print process. Hoovering it off means there is no way for the toner to get onto the paper. You must replace all the developer units and possibly the toner too. It will be cheaper to by a new printer i think.

You could try a claim on your insurance if you are covered for accidental damage.

In future, maybe you should call an engineer - it is usually cheaper than a new printer.

Paper jam, i have tryed every thing got new paper, didnt work...

Sounds like your machine needs new rollers.. pick up roller and feed rollers..

Or something is blocking the paper path?

Clean the machine

I would suggest removing the ink cartridge

get a lint free cloth, a can of air, some q-tips and flash light and a lint free cloth.

Open the machine and blow it out with a can of air,

Look in it with a flash ligth and clean with the cloth or q-tipw and a small drop of the alcohol.

Clean the rollers in there with the cloth a slight bit damp, you will probably see the cloth get dirty from this.

Blow with air, let it dry out a bit..
put the ink back in, start it up and try again.

I believe there is a button that will feed paper through. do that then go to your print driver and print a test page.

This is what I do with my ink jet printer and usually helps it. I have never replaced the rollers, but clean them once in a while..

I repair Laser Copiers and Printers.. I have no ideal where to get parts for an ink jet machine.. usually suggest to through them away as they as designed to be disposal..

I hope this helps..
