    paper is not feeding properly despite cleaning the rollers and looking for obvious obstructions.



    thank you, Lisa

    Printer does not print.At the beginning of cycle machine pulls paper 1/3 of the way in, prints on the edge of paper. Machine continues to complete cycle but paper does not feed thru.



    Does anyone know how to get to the rollers to clean them?

    What do you do next - when cleaning the rollers isn't the answer. Page feeds in initially, then does not continue to feed during the printing process until only one half of the text is left to print. This gives you half a page of printed material with the text of the first half missing. I hope you can help.Thank you.

    My printer says it is jammed, and the paper won't feed through, but I cannot see any obvious obstructions.

Try cleaning the feed rollers. these are the rubber wheels that actually contact the paper and pull it through. If they get dirty, their grip on the paper will be less than adequate. Just use some clean water, or perhaps some rubbing alcohol, and a clean rag to wipe them thoroughly.

Lexmark t614 manual feed how it works


  1. Push the lower release latch. The multipurpose feeder door drops open.
  2. Pull out the metal bar in the recessed area on the multipurpose feeder, far enough to accommodate the paper you will be using.
  3. Slide the paper width guide to the far right.
  4. Prepare the print material for loading:


      • Flex paper or fan envelopes back and forth. Do not fold or crease the paper. Straighten the edges on a level surface.
      • Hold transparencies by the edges and avoid touching the print side.
      • Fan the stack of transparencies to prevent jams.
      • Be careful not to scratch or leave fingerprints on the transparencies.

  5. Use the stack height limiter as a guide for stack height when loading print materials.
  6. Load one type of print material in the multipurpose feeder. Do not mix types.
  7. Slide the paper width guide over until it fits snugly against the side of the print material.

Lexmark X85 won't feed paper. When trying to


There could be something in the paper feeder that's blocking the paper path. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

Paper won't feed through printer. (Lexmark X2690). Can't see anything stuck in printer. Paper won't go down past rollers, but I can't see down inside etc


Loading paper and original documents
1. Make sure:
• You use paper designed for inkjet printers.
• If you are using photo, glossy, or heavyweight matte paper, you load it with the glossy or printable side facing you. (If you are not sure which side is the printable side, see the instructions that came with the paper.)
• The paper is not used or damaged.
• If you are using specialty paper, you follow the instructions that came with it.
• You do not force paper into the printer.

2. Before loading paper the first time, slide the paper guides out toward the edges of the paper support.
3. Load the paper vertically in the center of the paper support, and adjust the paper guides to rest against the edges of the paper.

How to load paper


Your model has two trays on the front. The bottom one of these two is where you load the blank paper.
1. Raise the output tray to load paper into the main input tray.
2. Slide the paper-width guide to its outermost position.
3. Tap a stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges, and then check the paper for the following:
• Make sure it is free of rips, dust, wrinkles, and curled or bent edges.
• Make sure all the paper in the stack is the same size and type.
4. Insert the stack of paper into the main input tray with the short edge forward and the side to be printed down. Slide the stack of paper forward until it stops.
5. Slide the paper-width guide inward until it stops at the edge of the paper.
Do not overload the main input tray; make sure the stack of paper fits within the main input tray and is no higher than the top of the paper-width guide.
6. Lower the output tray.
7. Pull the output tray extender towards you, as far as it will go.

I hope this helps!

Lexmark x85 paper jams


I have owned several X73, X83, and X85 printers. Most of them end their life in the way that you are describing your problem. They will start by feeding the paper thru the primary load but will not feed the paper thru to be printed on and out the paper exit.

First and foremost, I advise you to unplug the printer, remove the flip top cover and turn the printer upside down and shake. I have seen items in the paper path such as a penny cause issues like this. Also make sure the paper path is clean and no small tears of paper in the way that could be blocking. If you find something check again, hopefully this is the good solution.

If that does not work, it is most likely that you need the print engine for the unit. Unfortunately this costs about $109 if you can find them (unless they got cheaper since I last checked).

If it makes you feel any better I have one that matches your's on the shelf here :) You can get a new AIO printer for $109 or just a little more.

You didn't specify which operating system you have.

If you have Vista, people have reported success using the Windows 2000 driver.
