Did it work before cover repair? ie Did you un do any plugs when "fixing" or cables? check them, re do steps from previous repair and check, switchs, sensors, all connections are present and secured correctly.

    At a guess....Take care to GENTLY plug the ribbon cable and the other scanner connector back in, making sure it's seated all the way. Try not to bend or kink the end of it, or it will be toast.
    might be the issue.

I got the error message on my Lexmark C532n 200.26 and 200.16, there is no paper jammed, the Lexmark technician asked me to change the paper pick up roller which we did, but we are still getting the error...

The 200.16 jam indicates that the input sensor was covered when the printer was powered on or reset, or a cover was opened/closed.

You may also check the following:

1. The paper being used is within specification and has been loaded correctly.

2. Any previous jams have been completely removed.

3. The printing environment is within acceptable temperature and humidity ranges.

4. If the tray was overfilled or a paper jam occurred, sheets of paper may have come off the media stack.

5. If you don

Hi, my lexmark T640 is saying 202.06 paper jam, check rear door. i have opened it and there is no jam, there is no paper anywhere and have pulled all the trays out and there is no jam. what do you suggest?

This jam is refering to back door, jam in fuser (hot bit) Double check no paper is wraped around fuser rollers.

These machines have a fuser at rear if you look at he fuser from the back, on it you will see, two thick fuser rollers (ones rubber), paper runs threw these then it hits a little black switch (your machine thinks this switch is activated) and then a series(3,4) of small rubber exit rollers, this switch (between middle and left) can get damaged it also likely that a piece of paper is concertinaed in fuser.

I pulled the paper jam out, now printer will not print

Switch the printer off, remove the back cover, now you will see rubber rollers, try turning them slowly either upwards or downwards, if they move freely then proceed to the next step. Look for any paper or any loose pieces that are stuck between the rollers and casing, if so then remove it from the printer.

Close the casing at the back,Switch on the printer, now open the front of the printer, the lid should be pushed slightly upwards, you will see a clear ribbon and a round rubber bar, also you will notice the printer cartridges moving to the side as you open the lid of that printer. If the cartridges did not move back to the one side, it means that the guidance rod is dirty and sticky, even if it did move to the side, and you heard the grinding noise, take a piece of paper towel, wipe the metal rod clean, now take some clear vaseline, gently apply it to the length of the shaft / rod, now close the lid and open the lid after powering the printer. If the problem persist, it could mean that the roller gear is worn, this is situated on the one side of the round rubber feeder / roller. Try moving the roller with your thumbs, up or down. Is it jammed? Y then replace or have it repaired. N Close the lid, insert the paper and press the paper feeder button, did it load correct? Y then it is fixed, if not get back to me asap

Try pulling out the tray and looking for the feed rollers that pull the paper up into the printer. The 2 rollers should have rubber "shoes" on them (they look like thick black rubber bands). Remove these roller "shoes", turn them inside-out, and put them back on the rollers. This worked for me, maybe it will work for you too.

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:
  1. Press the power button to turn the printer off.
  2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
  3. Close the front cover.
  4. Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
  5. Resend your document to print.
Ensure that:
  • The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
  • You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
  • The printer is on a flat, level surface.
  • The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
  • You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
  • The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
  • Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
  • Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
  • You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.
Important: Your application may not be designed to print envelopes. For help, consult the documentation that accompanied your application.

Please see that any thing like paper pick roller or any sensor is broken else wrongly aligned for smooth flow.
Kindly be sure that you are using the right paper for your printer( Donot use used paper. Or Damp or curly paper)

If possible see that roller and sensers are fixed and Tightly fitted( Properly do not tight with Force)

Align the tray properly if nothing works Please update me I will provide further Solution).

Paper Jam

The problem is that after the cover sensor clip is replaced, the logic that tells the printer to feed the paper just to the beginning of the input roller is corrupted. The feeder roller (grey one at the paper feed) rolls to feed the paper and once the paper get to the input roller, another switch detect the paper, that tells the logic to change the direction of the input roller to feed the paper to the cartrige.

There's should be a way to reset the logic part of the printer to get it working right. Maybe pushing a combination of the front panel buttons.

Try playing with the power/green or power/"X" while unplug and plug the power cord.

Good Luck!!! email me with more sugestions/ideas... jmjc_65 at hotmail...
