Sounds like the pickup roller is worn or dirty. Try cleaning the pick up roller for the tray. If this doesn't work the pick up roller will need to be replaced.

That is usually caused by the paper feed rollers being cover with paper dust. Take a clean cotton pad and alcohol and clean the rollers :turninig each roller as you clean it. if it has a rear dor, open it to get better access to the rollers.

SOURCE: label sheets won't feed, jam

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.


good luck..

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.

Our c935 will not reliably feed from the multipurpose tray. The repair vendor, Lexmark certified, has replaced the feeder multiple times. This problem has been with us for 3 weeks, impacting our ability...


85% of paper feed problems 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 issue will cease. If you plan to keep your printer,

Replace the pick-up and feed rollers.


Metal Tab Separation- Pull out your paper tray and examine either end where the paper sits in. If any of the corners are held down by metal tabs, this is your paper feed system. Chances are, you only have one rubber roller or one set of rollers arranged along side of each other. Reach in where the tray goes and feel up. You should feel some rollers. They might be completely round, or they might be shaped like a half moon. Clean whichever part of them you can with the solution, and this should stop your paper jams. It might be necessary to turn them, but don't force them if they don't move freely.

Pickup Roller and Separation Pad-

If your printer uses this paper feed system, you should see a small piece of flat or slightly curved rubber or cork. It would be towards the end of the paper tray, or deep inside the paper loading cavity on top loaders. This 'separation pad' rubs against the paper feed roller, so if you find the pad, you've found the roller. Clean it and your jams should stop.


Three Roller Paper Separation System- Pull your paper tray out, and look for a roller on either end of it. If you find one, clean it. Then look inside the printer where that roller would rest with the paper tray inserted. You'll find another paper roller there. Clean this one also. Finally, look further back or closer to the front of your printer (depending on which way your paper feeds) to find another roller or set of rollers. Clean all of these, and your paperfeed problems will go away.

My Lexmark C510 keeps popping up with a Paper Jam 241 error in Tray 1. There is no paper jam. I open the printer door take the tray out, put it back in and shut the door. How can I fix this problem? I...


I have a Lexmark C510 colour printer: Manufacture date June 2005.
I had been getting the "Paper Jam 241 error in Tray 1" message for some time. Sometimes it would print just fine but in the past several months, it's been bad. I'd pull the tray out (notice roller marks on the top sheet that was only partially fed), reinserted the sheet properly into the tray and try again and again. The techy at Lexmark mentioned that I could purchase a new rubber roller that feeds the sheet but that I might first wipe down the roller myself as they get worn and old. I first wiped it down with a damp cloth to clean it then thought to try reconditioning it with leather conditioner we'd purchased for our couch (I'm sure Amourall would work just as well). Voila, the old, dry roller was picking up paper again. Just open the rear door and that grey roller (it's black again when you recondition it) is at the bottom. Hope that helps.

My D7460 will not feed paper The screen says load paper face down in main tray.


Usually this occurs when a printer has had fairly excessive use. This causes the rubber paper feed rollers to become shiny and then they are unable to grab the paper, or it grabs several sheets at the same time. Newer laser printers have now have grooved belt tracks to help prevent this problem.

The easiest way I have found is to BUFF the shiny tracks... Here´s how... Using a ladies nail file (sand paper type) Press the paper feed button to cause the rollers to slowly rotate and buff the rubber as it turns. Making sure no sand enters the rollers. If several sheets of paper feed at the same time. Pull them out and a trick to stop this happening is... to fan the paper before loading into the paper tray. The trapped air will allow the sheets to glide easier.

Will not pick up paper from tray. Red light blinks indicating a paper jam. Prints fine if single sheet thru bypass slot.


Not picking up paper indicates either a worn nip roller (rubber on feed spindle) or you have a broken gear in the feed mechanism.

My laserjet 1020 develops a paper jam after printing the first page of a multipage print instruction .I have deleted the printer and re-installed it including all drivers but problem still...


Hi,
Reinstalling the printer is related the Software.
If the paper gets physically jammed than its the driver setting issue or hardware issue.
Check if two sheets get jammed or only one sheet.
If it is two sheets than printer is picking up multiple sheets and paper gets jammed.
If the printer is jamming a single sheet than remove the Tray and look there is rubber roller inside if there are marks or lines on that rubber roller or if the roller roller is worn out than that rubber roller called as paper pickup roller need to be replaced.
If that looks fine than try to priny using manual feed and if the problem persists from manual feed too than try another toner cartridge
If the problem is not from Manual feed Tray that Replace the main Tray with known good Tray and check if the issue resolved.

Fixing paper feed problems
  • Ifthe printer is not picking up paper, check to see if there is paper inthe IN tray. If there is not, load paper into the IN tray and press thec00153917.jpg RESUME button.
  • Do not load more than 100 sheets of 20-pound paper in the IN tray. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38 inches.
  • Use the same type paper in the paper tray when you are printing.
  • Makesure that the paper width adjuster is against the left side of thestack but is not blocking the stack. Push in the paper length adjusterto make sure that the paper is fully seated in the printer. Do not pushso hard that the paper buckles.
  • Do not use paper, envelopes, or cards that are torn, buckled, have curled edges, or do not lie flat.
  • Ifusing the IN tray to load several envelopes, push the paper lengthadjuster toward the envelopes until it stops. Do not bend the envelopes.
  • Load only one envelope at a time in the single-sheet input tray and be sure that it is inserted fully into the slot.
  • Use envelopes with square flaps instead of triangular flaps, or tuck the flaps inside the envelopes.
  • Ifthe printer's paper feed rollers become covered with debris (dust orpaper fibers), clean the rollers with a soft cloth dampened with water.
  • Ifthe paper loads unevenly in the printer, one or more of the rollers onthe rear access door is missing. Remove the rear access door and checkto see if all six rollers in the door are present. If any are missing,the door assembly needs to be replaced. This is a customer replaceablepart, number C4557-60076.
  • Ifthe printer does not drop any paper from the wings to the OUT tray,remove the excess paper. The paper stack should not exceed 10 mm or .38inches.
  • Ifthe printer is sending more than a single sheet through at one time,remove the paper from the IN tray and separate any sheets that arestuck together. Reload the paper in the IN tray.

Lexmark E232 - Tray-1 Paper Problem


Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...

Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it
downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to
pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over
them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and
the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a
can of compressed air inside the machine.
If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you
need to replace the feed rollers.
