Disconnect the printer, open the front door and look at the right end of the feed roller. There have to be a plastic tooth in open L shape just between two gears. This is to engage the service station mechanics when the carriage is moved to right end and often breaks. If it is broken, the spare part to replace is called "Printer mechanism" and costs about the price of entire printer. Do not attempt to glue it because the tension is too big there and it will break again. Just buy another printer.

I have a 5650 lexmark printer and it keeps saying paper jams but there is not paper anywhere.. how can i find a solution... when you load paper it keepps getting stuck.. help


There could be something blocking the paper path. Try to shake the printer upside down. You'll be amazed of the things that falls off inside the printer. Also, make sure that there's no paper left inside the printer. Tiny pieces of paper will still lead to paper jams.

My printer keeps saying there is a paper jam and makes a funny click-click-click noise when I repower it.


There is probably something jamming the cog's that feed the rollers and paper,

If you cant see anything such as a paper jam, then try flipping the printer upside down, and give it a gentle shake.

It's surprising how many times a paperclip or something has fallen into the opening or paperpath of a printer.

Good Luck

My printer keeps saying there is a paper jam. But


If the printer is sensing a paper jam, then there is either a small piece of paper jammed under a sensor, or the sensor is falsely reporting a jam.

If you cannot find the sliver of paper, I suggest that you contact Canon Technical Support or take the printer to an authorized repair shop.

Paper jam indicator keeps appearing and there is no jam.


SOMETIMES THE PRINTER WILL READ THAT IT HAS A JAM IF SOMETHING LIKE THE INK ISNT CLICKED IN TIGHT OR SUCH. IM SURE YOU MIGHT HAVE TRIED UN PLUGGING IT FROM ITS ACTUAL POWER SUPPLY BUT IF YOU HAVENT I WOULD TRY THAT, IT COULD RESET THE WHOLE THING. IF THAT DOESNT WORK I WOULD JUST GET THE PRINTER IN GOOD LIGHT AND OPEN ALL COMPARTMENTS, THERE COULD BE THE SMALLEST PIECE OF PAPER JAMMED SOMEWHERE YOU CANT SEE OR WOULDNT EXPECT THERE TO BE ONE
