Question about Lexmark X83 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Paper feed problem

The paper will not feed. The error message is "paper jam" but there is no paper in it and I cannot find anything in it to block it. When the ink cartridge rolls across on the wire, it makes a continuous clicking noise, which is different and has not done before. Its a Lexmark X83. Thank you for any advice you can give me.

The clicking noise is an indication that something's not right in the printer. But try taking out the cartridges from the printer. Then, close the cover. Remove all sheets of paper. Unplug the power supply from the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 10-15 seconds before plugging it back in. Once printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Load some paper and try to print again. If this doesn't help and you're still getting that continuous clicking noise, it's a hardware issue. If that's the case, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. I hope I can assist you more on this.

Check the specs operators manual or go to the Samsung web site look up the specs for your machine. The weight of your paper may be greater then the machine can handle.

Thank you contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
This error is associated with either a sheet of paper blocking the paper path or a partial piece of paper that blocks path or trips a sensor. The printer will usually throw up a error code 13.XX on the display and the XX is a number that will indicate where in the paper path this error most probably occurred. Just follow the steps for your error on the below chart.

I'm trying to print but it keeps coming up with an error message paper jam, remove jam paper and press start. There's no paper jam and it won't print. I have try talking out the paper from the feeding tray...


Please remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer driver software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
If the printer shows a jamming error then check the input of the paper feed as there can be some foreign objects that is obstructing the detector opto-coupler or the detect switch. clean and check or the sensor is faulty.

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.

Paper feed error message. spits it out fast and


Your printer has a fail safe mechanism that pushs the paper that it's processing out to prevent any other jams during the printing process. Your rollers must have something jamming it's movement during printing. You will need to open the printer through the panels on the back, front, and side to ensure that you see the rollers and remove any paper or debrise blocking hitched on the rollers or in the printer. You may also want to ensure that the holders on the sides of the paper tray where the paper comes in are lined up correctly. Also, make sure not to pack the paper tray to capacity. Only use the tray half full.

Paper feeds only an inch or so and then hangs, giving an error message. There appears to be nothing blocking the channel. The toner is almost out, does this have anything to do with the feeding mechanism?


Look for paper clips/ garbage that fell in or look for bent paper out sensor in the paper path (possibly left over paper from a previous jam or a piece of stuck label because the glue melted because you may not have used labels for *LASER* printers

The printer will not feed the paper into the machine


Hmm, this is too general symptom too troubleshoot. But never mind. Printer cannot feed the paper for several reasons:
Auto sheet feeder (paper feeding mechanisme) is faulty;usually generate error message on the monitor or/and error code on LCD display
Paper end did not reach paper sensor because the paper not set properly or another material block the paper path.
To find out more about this error,please check the following article exclusively for Canon printer.

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.


If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.

Printer keeps on jamming paper


Dear all,
I will try to help you. Paper jam error may be caused by some possibilities. So, please notice this indication:
  • If the printer status is READY immediately after Power ON then Paper Jam Error message appears while feeding the paper: Sheet Feeder Unit is faulty or any other material (such as broken paper) present inside paper path blocking paper end to reach paper feed sensor.
  • If Paper Jam Error messages appears immediately after Power ON: Paper feed sensor or logic board is faulty
Corrective action:
  • Remove the material from paper path
  • Replace Sheet Feeder Unit
  • Replace Paper Feed Sensor / Logic Board
Please rate me as Fixya if you find this useful for you. Thanks.
