Question about Lexmark E210 Laser Printer
The printer sounds like the roller is running trying to feed the paper and it has done so a few times, but mostly it just sits and runs and then the red light comes on.
Here is the solution, Inside the upright paper tray, on the bottom, there is a little blue "rubber roller", like 2" short, maybe 1.5" in diameter. That blue roller works as a grip, it feeds one sheet of paper to the main roller, which then passes it to other rollers, coronas, transfers, and such. That is the How, in short, Now the Why. That little blue roller wears down over use, like an eraser. It can not grip the paper, unless you fill the paper completely, or try to feed one page at a time, bending the paper to try to get it to grip.
Sometimes That doesn't work because it's worn down so much. Lexmark sells maintenance kits, which include the grip roller along with other replaceable parts. They may sell just that alone, idk.
Also another problem is the metal bar the roller sits on. That metal bar is connected the small gears on both ends. If those gears aren't moving properly, the rubber grip will not engage. A quick fix may be too lube the gears, or there may be something jammed in those gears.
