    Lexmark X4530 won't load paper to copy


    Leading cause of paper jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach to fix the problem:

    1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
    2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
    3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
    4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
    5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
    6. Close the printer cover.
    7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
    8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

    Paper won't feed properly and jams. the paper starts to feed then twists and jams.


    There are a couple of possibilities. First is a little piece of paper could be stuck somewhere along the paper path and is causing one of the feed rollers to not grab the paper evenly, which will make the page twist on most of the models in this series, if you pull the paper out and take a flashlight and look up the feed path you will usually see anything in the feed path near/on the rollers at the top.
    Another possibility is one of the feed rollers is old and worn out (If machine gets heavy use) and it will cause same issue.
    Also light paper stock can sometimes be too thin for the rollers to grab properly and cause it to twist and slide around. This is usually more of an issue with gravity/drop feed printers but can also occur on front feed style too. Usually 20lb stock is good, but if thats doing it, you can try going to a 24lb.

    Lexmark 5400 series printer won't grab paper for printing


    Hi,

    Whenever the printer doesn't pulls the paper please pull the pack of papers, browse through the papers with your finger and put them back gently.If it doesn't work it means the wheels that pull the paper are worn and you need to replace them.

    For the second problem, this is not a printer problem but a software problem, please specify which software do you use so we can help you, as each software has individual options to print multiple pages. It will also be more logical to post the problem in the specific software area.

    Good luck,

    Not grabbing paper


    Try cleaning the rollers again and fan the paper. When you clean the rollers, use alcohol and a lint free cloth. Don't put too many sheets in the feed tray.

    Paper does not feed - GRABS RIGHT SIDE


    gears below the paper feeding tray are damaged or some dust particle have blocked the gears try to clean it by blowing the dust use normal greece (oily substance) between the gears so that they can move frequently to pull the paper, and if the gears are damaged you have to change the gears.

    Lexmark 5400 series paper jam


    As several previous posts said there was a pieces of paper folded up inside. Per a previous post remove the sheet feeder rack. At this point I removed the two outside screws (of the three) on the backe. After this the whole top lifts about 3/4 inch (19mm) to give your fingers more room to clear it. Looks like she will print another day.

    Thanks for the tips on here.

    Lexmark 1185 - paper feed problem


    You may be missing a very small jam. Use a torch and tweezers, check down the back, also open cover, check even where you think paper wouldn't jam. Especially in teeth, rollers. Look for foreign debris as well as paper. Also, turn off, unlplug all cables/usb etc and replug, turn on. Finally, never load more than about 20 fine sheets at a time, reset printer settings to default. As a last resort, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer.
