Re: Loading Paper for Lexmark

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...

Lexmark Series X1150 My printer does not recognize the color print cartridge and only prints in Black even though the color cartridge is new. First time this has ever happened. I've had the printer...

Make sure you are inserting the correct color cartridge versions for the Lexmark X1150 (either #26 or #27).
Try to clean the cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center, click Start > Programs > Lexmark X1100 Series > Lexmark X1100 Series Solution Center. From the Maintenance tab, click Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page that will help clean the nozzles from possible dirt and clogs.
If that doesn't help, try to insert a different known working cartridge (e.g. your old cartridge or another new cartridge). It could be a faulty cartridge issue.

Lexmark 5495. No paper jam. Gears just spin. Won't grab paper. Paper properly in loading position.

Here are some tips on how to use the feeder: - Use paper that is in good condition. - Fan the paper before loading into the feeder to avoid sticking together. - Make sure the paper don't buckle when loading into the feeder. - Avoid overloading.

Paper keeps shifting during loading and eventually gets jammed every time

Seems like the rollers are either dirty, or worn out. Probably the latter.

Here's an article in the Lexmark website on Loading Paper, or Other Print Media, into the Priority Feeder of a Lexmark E120(n). Just click on this link: Follow the instructions carefully. Take note on Paper Capacity of the Priority Feeder found below the page. Hope this helps.

My Lexmark x1150 printer prints blank pages.

Usually, when the printer prints, but the page comes out blank, the print head on your cartridges is clogged. Since you pointed out that you computer was repaired, I guess you weren't printing during that period, so it is quite normal that the cartridges won't print. Here is a link to Lexmark's site.
Read carefully and follow the instructions. If necessary, do several nozzles cleaning, but do bear in mind that it uses a lot of your ink.
