Following instruction from Lexmark tech support, I turned the printer upside down and shook it for 5 to 50 seconds. The debris inside fell out. Then using a damp lint free cloth I cleaned the rollers.

Printer 2480- my printer is pulling paper only on right side


Try this :

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.

Lexmark x 3350 all-in-one


I picked up a used Lexmark 3500 with the same problem. Had requested help fixing.

Tried to feed more paper through - still pulling hard on the right side. Tried to feed several pieces of paper - one at a time, getting them jammed then pulling them back out. Finally one got jammed way down in there - yanked it back out. Open the top(as to load ink cartridges) Saw a tiny piece of paper sticking out between the plastic rollers, got a small crochet hook (tweezers would have worked), grabbed a hold of it and pulled it out enough to get a good hold of it, then pulled it out. There had been a shread of paper jammed in the roller area. 3" long by from 1/4" to 1 1/2" wide.

My problem was the chunk of paper stuck in the roller mechanism where you could not see it or get to it, until it was partially forced out.

Hope this helps someone else!

Lexmark e320 thumping on feed


Hi,
The printer may report load paper when there is enough paper present in the feeder, however this could be due to number of reasons such as if there is something which is blocking the paper to flow through the feeder anything for example, some foreign martial like a pen or a pencil, please find few steps below to fix this issue.

1. Confirm that no foreign materials are inside the machine.
2. Confirm that usable paper is set.
3. Confirm that the paper is set properly.
4. Confirm that recommended paper is used, and the number of sheets are not exciding the required number limit.
5. Adjust the paper feeder guide to the sheet size.
6. Disconnect the printer power cord as well as the printer cable form the printer.
7. Turn the printer upside down and shake the printer in order to remove any obstacle which is stuck inside the printer causing the paper jam error.
Open the printer cover and remove the cartridge and check carefully if there is any small piece of paper which is stuck inside, if so carefully remove it.
8. Disconnect the printer power cord and press and hold the power button on the printer for about 15 to 20 seconds( this will release the flee power) and reconnect the printer and check.
9. Try to rotate the wheel inside the feeder if you can reach it, to ensue that it is free enough to pull the paper.
10. Try printing with having only one sheet in the feeder and check if it does work.


Should you require any further assistance regarding the printer or even any other compute related issue please feel free to contact me I will be more than glad to assist you.

Paper Feed


Try turning the printer upside down and shaking it. Sometimes something small like a paper clip or Lego brick gets down inside and will prevent the paper from feeding.
