Paper jam/ printing problem

My lexmark x4550 is not printing properly, its making all the right noises but only pulling the paper in a little(and slightly in to one side) then carries on the printing process and does not come up with paper jam until printing is complete. when i pull the paper out it only has ink on the first part. any thoughts on how to fix it? thanks

I have this printer and when this did it to me like its doing to you the FEEDER had to be replaced. Now you might want to see if all the rollers are rolling and nothing is in the paper path. Also check you paper weight and size and adjust accordenly. A new feeder is like $27 bucks and you would have to go 3rd party to get it. I got mine from a USED lexmark someone was saling off ebay for my fix.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams


Frances;
I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
Note:
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

I have a paper jam in the printer lexmark x4550 and don't know how to get to it


If you're having trouble getting the paper jam from the feeder, you can open the cartridge area. You should be able to get a better hold of jammed paper out from there.

My Lexmark did the same thing-if you can get in at the rollers to clean them that might help.

Paper jam in the lexmark x4550


If you know someone who is handy with this kind of stuff, you should get them to open the printer up and remove the paper. You could also try to just send sheets of paper through to see if they can dislodge it (but that may cause paper jams as well).
