Lexmark 1270 paper feed problem

I have a Lexmark 1270 printer that is pulling the paper unevenly. I notices that there is a disconnected spring in the paper feed area but it is not clearly identifiable what to reconnect it to.

It seems you're having mechanical problem with that spring disconnected somewhere in the printer paper feed. Honestly, mechanical problems in the printer is difficult to troubleshoot/repair. I hope I can assist you more on this but I advise you to contact Lexmark at 1-800-LEXMARK(1-800-539-6275).

How do I clean the rollers on lexmark x2500


You can try to clean the rollers with a cotton bud to reach it.
Leading cause of paper misfeeds is debris or foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any obstructions.

It pulls papers in unevenly...


Your paper feed rollers probably have paper dust on them. Clean them with a soft cloth (not paper towel) moistened in alcohol. Then your paper should feed evenly.

Lexmark 7675 paper jam


> feeds unevenly

Usually, there are two, maybe three, rollers that should _evenly_ pull the paper through the path.
Check that each roller is making good contact with the paper.

> out of paper error-message

There's a small sensor, and usually a "finger" that rises when the weight of the paper is not sufficient to hold the finger down. Check for "dust" clogging/blocking this finger.

If all else fails, it's time to take the printer to a qualified technician, for a professional cleaning & tune-up.

    Printer gets jammed and has problem pulling the sheets


    The spring was probably part of the pickup mechanism. Most likely, there is something along the paper path that is causing the folding and misalignment. I suggest taking the printer apart to find the object.

    Uneven paper feed


    1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
    2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
    3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
    4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
    5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

    If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
    If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
    6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
    7. Turn the printer off.
    8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
    9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

    Feed the paper manually into the printer:
    Place a sheet of plain A4 paper in the paper feed tray.
    Move the paper support on the left-hand side to the left end of the paper.
    Press the paper feed button.
    If the paper does not feed, continue with step 2.

    Check for any obstructions in the paper feed path:
    Disconnect the cables from the back of the printer.
    Open the front of the printer and check for anything that may be blocking the paper path.
    Close the front lid and remove any paper from the paper feed tray.
    Holding the printer in both hands, turn it upside down to see if anything falls out of the paper feed area. (Sometimes objects such as pens, paper clips and so on can fall into the paper feed area and cause blockages.)
