Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi My printer just makes a whiring/roller sound when I ask it to print- but it will not take in any paper!! Scanning is OK - but sometimes says there is no connection to the computer - but there is 'cos scan works & can be saved to computer perfectly. I am unning on Vista home premium. Please help as this is a nearly new machine - & I want to avoid the landfill trap.
If you have used a fair amount of low-cost paper since it was new, the rubber transport rollers may be clogged with paper fiber which causes the rollers to slip.
I don't know how accessible the pickup rollers are on your machine but dig through the user's manual to see if they give any clues for removing paper jams.
Access to remove these will often allow you to see (and clean) the pickup rollers.
Use a cloth or hard paper towel with tight fibers and some cleaner such as '409' or 'Simple Green' to wipe the rollers.
This will often restore the necessary 'stickiness' to the pickup rollers.

Tips for a great answer:
If the Paper Feed Roller is dirty or paper powder is attached to it, paper may not be fed properly.
In this case, clean the Paper Feed Roller. Cleaning will wear out the Paper Feed Roller, so perform this only when necessary.
You need to prepare: three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper
1.Make sure that the power is turned on, and remove any paper from the Rear Tray.
2.Open the Paper Output Tray gently, and open the Output Tray Extension.
3.Clean the Paper Feed Roller without paper.
(1) Press the (Maintenance) button repeatedly until b appears.
(2) Press the Black or Color button.
The Paper Feed Roller will rotate as it is cleaned.
4.Clean the Paper Feed Roller with paper.
(1) Make sure that the Paper Feed Roller has stopped rotating, and load three sheets of A4 or Letter-sized plain paper in the Rear Tray.
(2) Make sure that b appears on the LED, then press the Black or Color button.
The machine starts cleaning. The cleaning will be completed after the paper is ejected.
This should fix the issue
