    Usually, this problem needs service. But try this. Unplug printer from power source for at least one minute. Plug the power again. Make sure the printer is plugged in straight to the power outlet, bypassing any power strips or extensions. Check error. If problem persists, I suggest you contact your local Authorized Service Provider(ASP) or contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.

Lexmark W820 jamming at fuser? I have replaced the fuser and the pickup rollers in tray 1 and 2, the paper diverter in the output assembly because sometimes the paper would get caught in the teeth after...


Check to make sure that sensor is plugged in good at the sensor end and the logic board end. The printer uses that sensor to tell it that the paper has exited the fuser correctly, if it does not get a signal within a certain time frame it will give a paper jam error and stop printing. The sensor itself may be broken or the little plastic piece that you can see that is called a flag may be jammed so that it does not move to show paper movement. How far does the flag stick out? It should be about 1/8 inch out in the paper path, if less than that the flag is broken off and will need to be replaced. I hope this helps. If you need more info let me know. If this solves your issue than please rate my solution.

Color Printer fan error

The SMPS Fan Error is caused by slow or no rotation of the SMPS Fan. The firmware solution from Samsung disables monitoring so if the fan stops the printer will keep working. Thankfully, it's not physically hard to fix this issue though and can be done by removing 9 screws and using a little oil.

I've actually posted a step by step guide to fix this here.
