Question about Lexmark X5470 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Newly installed won't stop jamming paper

First - confused on the number above - my printer,copier,scanner, & fax by Lexmark physically has X5320 on it -- but it is the same as the photo of the X5470 and NOT the same as the photo for the X5320.

Now the prob: just installed it (correctly) yesterday and all the test pages, etc.. checked out -- and I even printed 3 pages at diff times throughout the afternoon.

Now today - it won't stop paper jamming -- can't print anything -- and this is with the same exact settings and paper from the same package. (and no one else has used this computer - let alone the printer).

Paper Jams in the Printer ID:412





Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.

If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
Turn the printer off.
Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.


If this didn't work please replace the printer by the company..

How do I use the fax machine?


Do people still fax..? I thought it was all E.Mail nowadays, Anyway
as I remember it, most company's had a FAX number very similar
to their Phone number yeh..? you would put the fax sheet in one end
Dial the comp. fax No. and it would start to fax through when the Fax machine at the other end answered just like a phone call works.
You are left with the original fax sheet and the fax machine would print
off a copy of what you sent it,and vice versa.I doubt however there are
many companies still using fax machines anymore,it's much easier to
E.Mail...T.C.

Fax on Lexmark 901 pro not feeding


Does it also jam when you're just copying or scanning? Try to check if the scanner is closed all the way down. The cover needs to be closed all the way down for the paper to flow properly from the ADF to the exit tray.

Rint,copy,scan or fax on my x5470 lexmark all in one. I unplug and restart compture and the fax still says paper jam check rollars dont see noughting.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

This is a hardware issue. Maybe the sensor, the pick arm or the pick roller itself that's causing the problem. Here's an article on Repeated '290' Paper Jam Messages Occur When Using the Automatic Document Feed (ADF) on a Lexmark X64x Series Printer. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/clBsWr. If this doesn't help, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.
