Printer jams come from one of two usual sources.

1. The paper is not fluttered(like shuffling cards) prior to inserting in the tray.

2. The paper is different, once from the other, in thickness. Most printers don't respond well to that sort of feed.

3. The rollers could be contaminated with dust, dirt, oil, etc, making the pickup of the paper a problem.

Sounds like a good cleaning is in order.

I've got a 4 by 6 photo paper jam in my Lexmark S405 all-in-one printer.


Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Try to reach for the paper jam.

3. If paper jam can't be reached, open the printer cover to access the cartridge area. You may be able to get a better hold of the paper jam in the cartridge area.

4. Remove the paper jam and make sure not to tear or leave any torn piece of paper in the printer.



When paper jam is clear, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Hi Ahsan & Guest,
Thanks for sharing the problem with me.
Please first check printer installation:-
Start --> Printers and Faxes --> Right Click the printer --> Properties --> Print test page.

Problem might be Lose cartridge, Lose cable connections, Paper Jam, previous aoverloaded print que. Please Rectify all this.

There may be a hardware problem with printer itself please take help of printer technician in that case.

If this works, then start MS word, type something on page.
Click on print and select the right printer and print. It will work GoodLuck
Dear Guest, this problem might be in printing the web pages, please select all what you want to print or select nothing before printing.

Please see print preview to make sure that what you are going to print is rightly selected.

Thanks

Paper Jam error


Try feeding paper from the front, if it works, your paper pickup rollers maybe having problems (dusty/worn-out).

DUPLEX PAPER JAM


I posted previously. After buying new paper, the duplex printing is working. It is probably heavier than my previous paper, but not particularly thick (don't know the exact grade.) So if you have this problem, try buying some new paper a little thicker than you are using now.

Printer keeps jamming


Sorry, dont know why my posts keeps coming up as guest and not my name (which is Garty)
i had but its maybe worth a try. My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
someone replied to my problem, i tried it and its fixed 1st time, also seems to of worked for some others.
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving PUSH it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

Noise on my printer HP psc 2410


I have experienced this problem numerous times since owning theprinter, and usually a full reset (# and 9 on power-up) has resolvedit. Not this time, however! Following Guest's advice above, I visitedwww.fixyourownprinter.com and found the solution: cleaning the glass. Thank you, Guest!

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.
