Bending the bottom exit tray will allow it to be removed. Simply remove tray and wipe rollers right in front of the bar that the ink slides back and forth on. Most printers get a lttle dust on the rollers then they wont feed. Hope this Helps.Sincerely Brian @ Game-On Computers.

If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed:

  1. Press the power button to turn the printer off.
  2. Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer.
  3. Close the front cover.
  4. Press the power button to turn the printer back on.
  5. Resend your document to print.
Ensure that:
  • The paper is a recommended paper for inkjet printers.
  • You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder.
  • The printer is on a flat, level surface.
  • The left paper guide is against the side of the paper.
  • You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper.
  • The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder.
  • Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes.
  • Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver.
  • You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

Removing paper jam from lexmark x3550

Use a strong light to examine the entire paper path. You may find one or more tiny bits stuck in a tiny space. This may be a result of feeding old or thin paper in previously

I have a very deep paper jam. The paper can barely be seen when looking down into the paper feed. Paper cannot be seen from the front where paper comes out. The paper is apparently folded very tightly...

Hi Rosemary, thanks for contacting me to help you fix your printer problem.
Well, have you tried removing the Paper Trays? There should be two trays and both of them are removable. Once they are removed, you'll be able to see through inside the paper passage in order to remove the jammed papers.
Remove the lid from the top of your printer. This lid protects the scanning bay. With the lid in the fully "open" position, lift upwards on it to separate the lid from the base of the printer.Now, remove the printer paper trays. These trays will pull directly off of the body of the printer. There are two paper trays -- one on the top of the unit and one on the front of the unit, beneath the control panel. Once they are removed, you will be able to see inside the passage where the papers are usually jammed. If your fingers can't reach the jammed papers, use a pair of tweezers to remove them. If you still have problems, let me know.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

A pen was dropped inside back of printer and it needs to be removed. The printer is not working properly; there is a rattling sound. Thank you

If you are willing and able, remove the printer from the power source. Disconnect the cables from the back of the printer. Remove any paper from the paper feed tray. Holding the printer in both hands, carefully turn it upside down to see if anything falls out of the paper feed area.

My lexmark x5630 has been showing paper jam but there is nothing inside the printer thats stoping it please help.

Hello. Try removing all sheets of paper from the printer. Make sure to check in the feeder by peeking inside it. Clear any foreign objects. Open the printer cover, and remove the cartridges. Clear any foreign objects around the cartridge carrier. Close the printer cover without the cartridges. Unplug the printer from the power outlet. Plug the power back after 10-15 seconds. It should power on automatically. When printer asks for the cartridges, load them back in. Close the cover down. Printer will print an alignment page. Just let it finish print the page. When there's no more error, try to make a copy or print from the computer to check. Hope this helps.

No Problem, go to the below link and type in your model x3550 where it says search by model.

Download the drivers to your printer listed there... it is just as good as getting the software... probably better because it has been updated. Hope this Helps!

Add Lexmark X3550ack on my cp -deleted by mistake

what I would do is delete the hard files first. do this by going to Start then hitting the Search button in the search bar type Lexmark X3550 and all subfolders do a search in your hard drive more possibly labled C:// drive once all those folders appear making sure that only Lexmark information is shown drag and drop these in the recycle bin. next go back to Start-then Control panel-then add or remove programs scroll down once populated search programs appear search to see if there is an icon for lexmark if this is so then click add or remove button after highlighting and click to remove. the next step is to remove the printer from the computer and remove the power cord. reinstall the printer as a new install first time install follow the instructions that are on your install disk.
