4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Epson R1800: printing 13x19" velvet paper. hand feeding into rear of printer. keeps saying eror, or paper jam or ... then finally just spits the paper through and out.


why print velvet paper? the problem is the velvet would be too thick and it would jam the print heads because when they run over the paper it would pull the velvet and it would get jammed i don`t think you should print velvet

Printer says paper jam when there is none


The printer may have an optical paper reader near the print head.

If you can, remove any plastic covers and blow out the head area with compressed air.

The optical reader may be located somewhere else also.

They get covered with paper dust and think its a paper jam.
Blow out all areas of printer.

Photo paper jam what thickness of photo paper should i use for a hp photosmart 8250 i keep getting jammed up and think the paper is to thick


Be sure and check the printing properties before printing. make sure that you specify the kind and thickness of the paper. This way the printer expects that thickness when printing. Sometimes, glossy paper makes the printer jam easily. Try putting around 25 regular paper on bottom of special paper and see if that helps.

Paper Jam message on every print job.


I have the same printer without the doc feeder. Check the paper trail thru the printer for the paper sensor lever hanging up. It gets pushed up by the paper and can stick, making the printer think it still has paper in it. Pulling the cart unsticks it till you print again.

Will not print


i think some **** of paper might be stuck inside the printer mechanism, carefully check it. if no, try the following :
* unload the cartridges and reload it back
* keep the printer offline (disconnect from the pc) and try copying something
* realign the cartridges with a former printed alignment sheet (i think u may have known how to align it)

Do not continue this way, you are sure to ruin your paper sensor or the like. Most probably you have a paper jam inside near the carriage or roller. Open at front, check inside for paper jam.
