There are a number of things that can cause a carriage jam. To prevent it from recurring, one should keep in mind a number of things. Always ensure that the paper tray is not overloaded as this might result in the paper being stuck inside. Also the paper being used should be as per the manufacturer's recommendations. Turn off the printer when removing bits of paper. If there is a broken gear, do not repair it yourself. Call an expert technician to mend it.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

Cannot clear paper jam


Paper Jams in the Automatic Document Feeder
If you're loading legal-size paper, insert only 10 sheets at a time to prevent paper feeding problems.
If paper jams inside the ADF, clear the jam and reload the paper as follows:
1.
Open the ADF cover and remove any jammed paper.

Caution:
Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first, or you could damage the mechanism.
2.
Press OK, then select Yes and press OK to clear any messages on the display screen.
3.
Reload the paper. Make sure the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up.

My printer has a paper jam but there is no paper jammed in my printer what do i do?


run the roller cleaning application in maintenance a few times then turn your printer upside down and gently shake it side to side to clear any foreign objects that may have fallen down the paper feed.
I know it sounds silly but on 3 occasions now i have cleared the "jam".

Paper jam


if you cleared the paper jam an your printer still shows this paper jam, you may try this:
1. after you clear the paper jam, turn off an on the printer.
2. if above advice is not working you may try to look more carefully (with a flashlight maybe) if a small piece of paper is not blocking the paper jam sensor.
3. unfortunately this is a job for a qualify serviceman.
4. in less then 2-3 % of cases is a defective sensor, and must be replace by a serviceman.

Hi Mose,

I never faced this problem any time , but could find a solution for you which i think will be helpful.

The paper jam error state occurs if the printer detects a paper at the platen after attempting to eject paper to the out tray. Clear the paper path.
<Power and Resume>
1. Turn the printer OFF and back ON to allow the printer to clear the jam.
(If the paper remains jammed, turn it back OFF and follow the remaining steps.)
2. Open the top cover and remove the OUT tray.
3. Pull the jammed paper out of the printer by grasping the middle section of the paper.
4. Remove all torn pieces from the paper path.
5. Remove any wrinkled or torn paper from the IN tray.
6. Reload the paper stack.
7. Replace the OUT tray and close the top cover.
8. Turn the printer ON.

Hope this answers your problem, Please let me know by providing your valuable feed back

Thanks,
Robosoft.
