Question about Lexmark All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Paper Jam My Lexmark X5250 will not print. I put the paper in and it stops half way continuing to make and irritating noise. I have checked inside the printer numerous times but have not found anything thing stuck in side. I have tried everything from taking away paper to only putting in one. I do wonder if the roller ( I think thats what it's called) is not working properly. I also wonder if another wire is not plugged in properly. Please respond to this and tell me what you think.

If it truly stops halfway then it must be obstructed by seomthing. If it only gets a short way past the pick up roller then it may be something else. A little trick for removing obstructions is to fold your paper in half or even a quarter so it is much thicker and stronger and try to feed that through. This can push through any obstructions (assuming they aren't too big). If it still gets stuck see if you can manually turn the main gear found to the side of the carriage and try to push the paper through that way (hence pushing through your obstruction). If your paper feeds through fine doing this then you may have another issue.

Good Luck.
Please rate my advice, good or bad.

Hello my printer wont work, the powerbutton is blinking and i hear a tikking noise. is mij printer broken?? lexmark x5250


It could an alignment problem, a paper jam, or something blocking the paper path. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges. While the cover is open, check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the cartridge carrier's path. Check any transparent strip(encoder strip) that has become loose from its position. If there's nothing out of the ordinary, close the cover. Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reinsert both cartridges and make sure they properly inserted and secured. Close the cover and try to print again.

Paper feeds about half way and then stops. All of the indicator lights come on.


If you get a paper jam, the Paper Jam indicator light promptsyou to clear the paper path. If the paper has just started to feed from thepaper feeder when the jam occurs, pull the paper straight up out of the paper feeder. Open and close the printer cover toresume printing. If the paper jam occurs inside the printer, remove the paper from the output bin. Turn the printeroff, then on. If this doesn't clear the jam, open the printer cover.Remove the print cartridge and cover it.For additional assistance, please contactLexmark Technical Support

It says paper jam but there's nothing there i have tried to check the insides but there is no paper jammed just won't work


Sometimes high cotton content paper will deposit paper "dust fibers" in the paper path and roller gears. Or there is a small torn piece of paper in the paper pathway somewhere. I have found bits of paper in the upper roller section on my Lexmark 5470 in the past. If that is not the problem unplug the power supply for a few minutes and then restart it. That should clear the error message.

Hp psc 1315 paper jam


Hi,



. Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge inside the all-in-one printer to dissipate before putting your hands or any metal tools inside the chassis.

2.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The 3 hot spots for a jam are before a sheet completely leaves the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and print carriage or between the print carriage and output tray.

3.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet jammed while still in the front area of the printer. If here, you should be able to see most of the paper.

4.
Pull the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a piece deeper inside the machine.

5.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed-tray area and print carriage. Carefully remove the jammed paper.

6.
Use the carriage access door to get at a jam further inside the printer. You may need to remove the print carriage to get to the jam.

7.
Replace all parts and return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.

Printer jam


There is an easy fix for Lexmark E232 paper jams at the beginning of the paper path. This fix only works when the problem is that the paper starts to feed, but does not quite make it out of the paper tray.

The problem is the pickup paper rollers. If you remove the paper tray and press down on the paper indicator (the red lever to the left of the paper tray) you can see the twin rollers attached to a spring loaded armature.

Chances are these rollers are worn and are very smooth to the touch. This slick smooth surface does not have enough friction to push the paper up to the next roller.

To fix this, remove both rollers, they slide off easily. Then simply turn both rollers inside out and replace them on the armature. Notice how much "stickier" they feel now? Chances are your paper jam problems are over, until the rollers wear out again.

At that point you will have to replace them.
