Question about Lexmark C510 Laser Printer
I have a Lexmark C510 colour printer: Manufacture date June 2005.
I had been getting the "Paper Jam 241 error in Tray 1" message for some time. Sometimes it would print just fine but in the past several months, it's been bad. I'd pull the tray out (notice roller marks on the top sheet that was only partially fed), reinserted the sheet properly into the tray and try again and again. The techy at Lexmark mentioned that I could purchase a new rubber roller that feeds the sheet but that I might first wipe down the roller myself as they get worn and old. I first wiped it down with a damp cloth to clean it then thought to try reconditioning it with leather conditioner we'd purchased for our couch (I'm sure Amourall would work just as well). Voila, the old, dry roller was picking up paper again. Just open the rear door and that grey roller (it's black again when you recondition it) is at the bottom. Hope that helps.

Rubber rollers have gone like F1 tyres after a race get a tin of triple R from maplins spray on roller and give it a good clean with a cloth not paper towel try that if it still slips try a bit more and try printintin it should pick and clean the feed roller as it turns

SOURCE: lexmark c510 241 paper jam error
had same trouble with card stock
I read the manual...lo! There are markers on the inside of the feed tray for various media. Complied with these markers, and no more problem. Should work for paper too.

SOURCE: 241 paper jam
Check the paper tray guides, check the the paper feed roller (remove the tray and look up in the printer) it is possibly worn and needs replacing, you can try to clean it (hand soap is as good as anything)

Tips for a great answer:
Lexmark T630 241 paper jam message - Indicates a paper jam from the pull down manual feed tray.
If you check to make sure and small fragments of paper are not hindering the operation of the switch. The switch is located on the left side of the tray and will be spring loaded. The switch should move freely without binding. Make sure no toner or dust is on the optical sensor assembly. See Diagram for location.
If the switch seems OK and the printer still reports an error, the printer will require professional care.
