Paper drags at the end of printing and smears the end of picture

Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 3300 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

Paper drags to the right and won't print--worked yesterday!

Sounds like you might have a small piece of paper stuck in the paper path that is causing it to feed incorrectly. Check the paper path.

Extra paper feeds and jams after each print. One copy prints and then the printer drags the next sheet down halfway and jams.

The feeder assembly is not timed right, it happens when you pull out a jam. It may have a broken spindle or gear, I would take it to a shop to figure out.

Printing Problems

That is known as paper skew. It normally comes from A. Worn or dirty rollers either in or just past the paper tray.
B. The paper tray itself. C a spring off a roller not allowing even pressure on the paper, or D, the registration clutch which is responsible for stalling the paper long enough to square it in the machine.
For some reason the paper is twisting from uneven drive to the right side of your print as seen in the photo. Could even be a slight obstruction aka a piece of a label or tape that somehow is in the paper path causing the paper to drag in that area.
Normally skewing ( twisting ) of the paper it pretty easy to cure. I am suspecting with a 5 year old machine, some slick rollers first, then a spring/pressure problem on some roller.
Let me know, We can fix this one.

your problem is due to gummed ink jets.. take out your ink cartriage and clean the bottom of it. make sure you avoid cotton or anything that would leave lint behind. also clean your shuttle. some shuttles you can pivot off from the track to clean and others you just can clean the tracks. make sure there is no ink gummed up on the tracks or the bottom of your cartriage
