I done it! I found the solution (Lexmark X5470 ONLY) What you do is take off the paper guide and then look down, you will see 2 rollers, if the paper veers to the right, the fiddle about with the left roller and then put the guide back on, it should work.

  1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
  2. 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.)
  3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
  4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
  5. 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.
  6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
  7. Turn the printer off.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

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.

Paper feeds over 50% into printer, makes noises an stops. When I try to see the paper by lifting the lid, it's not there. It's as if its feeding into another area of the printer


One of the leading causes of paper jams is some sort of debris falling into the feeder. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the feeder for any foreign objects. If you're willing and capable, carefully lift your printer upside down. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

Paper will not feed into printer, even with hand pushing on paper. rollers do not grab the paper.


Hi,
The problem could be an object inside the Auto document feeder that could be blocking the path of the paper or preventing the feed roller from feeding the paper. You can try the following, Turn off the printer, unplug it from the power cord, then remove the paper and then turn the printer upside down and shake it a little bit, sometimes this will help remove any objects inside the printer.
