Repeated, Unexplained Paper Jams With Little or No Damage to the Paper ID:ENUS5286 null.gif null.gif null.gif
IMPORTANT: The printer should rest on a surface that is flat, level, and uniform. This is for safety reasons as well as for paper feed reliability. In the bottom left corner on the front of the printer, as well as on the duplexer and each paper feed option apart from the 2000-sheet feeder, there is a shaft that rotates as the main drive motor in the printer operates. The purpose of this shaft (called the Power Take Off shaft) is to turn the pass-through rollers in the option below. The Power Take Off (PTO) shaft rotates during the printer's POR as well as any time the main drive motor turns, including while paper is feeding from any source and when the toner is agitated in the cartridge.
If the printer is on an uneven or non-level surface, the PTO shaft may not make full contact with the bevel gear on the lower options.
If the printer is on a surface that is not uniform (such as a carpet or foam padding), the PTO shaft on the lowest option may catch or bind, causing the paper feed operation to slow or stop completely.
In either case, repeated and unexplained paper jams (with little or no damage to the paper) may occur. The paper jam is due to the increased amount of time it takes the paper to feed through the path because the PTO shaft is bound or caught on the surface below, or is slipping on the bevel gear.
NOTE: This is not a printer defect or failure although it may result in a broken or stripped PTO shaft.

SOURCE: cover open

This is because the white plastic rocker switch which is very poorly attached to the micro switch at the back of the unit has become dislodged which means the micro switch is permanently open. Unfortunately due to its very poor design it has probably lost its plastic lugs which keep it attached to the micro switch.

Solution:
Locate the dislodged rocker switch, you may have to turn the printer upside down and shake it. If it won't come out, shake it after removing the cover...

If the plastic lugs are still in place then you are lucky. You will need to get inside the unit to refit it...

Open the unit as if you were about to replace the ink. Unclip the plastic prop at the top; you can pinch it using a pair of pliers. The cover will now hinge up much further, there is some minor friction still but it will come up to 90 degrees with a gentle tug.

It will now easily lift away from the hinges on the main body. You can remove the ribbon leads if you like. They go back again very easily.

You should now be able to get your fingers inside the unit. You will need a flat blade screw driver to assist you refitting the rocker. You should feel it clip into place if the plastic lugs are in place, even if they are worn. Test it and check it won’t fall off again easily.

It is much more likely that it will fall off again as the lugs have worn away.

This can be fixed by heating a medium sized paper clip with a lighter and pushing it through the side of the rocker, in the same location as the lugs. Cut the paper clip with the pliers, this will leave a 2-3mm pin sticking through the side of the rocker. Do this for both sides. Resite the rocker, then using a flat blade screw driver push the pins into the holes on the black micro switch. This should be quite easy as the rocker will still site in the correct position even if they are missing.

You will now have a fully functioning switch which will be far stronger than the original design.

Put everything back together, and test it.

SOURCE: wrinkled envelopes Brother mfc 9840cdw

Instead of moving the whole green lever to adjust that grey arrow to the envelope symbol, simply push the gray part that has the arrow on it. This will move the gray piece down to the env. symbol and will not move the green lever so you can close the back door. I used to have severly wrinkled envelopes. Now they print out perfect.

New color cartridge won't print


Try to re-seat the cartridges in the printer. Open the printer cover > remove the cartridges > close the printer cover > re-brick you printer by pulling out the power supply - black box behind the printer where the power cord is plugged in, and re-plug after 10 seconds. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and close the cover. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


If that doesn't help, the problem could be due to a clogged print cartridge nozzle. Please follow the steps below to fix print quality issues with your model:

  1. On your computer, go to Start menu.
  2. Go to Programs.
  3. Go to Lexmark 2600 Series folder.
  4. Select Lexmark Solution Center.

From the Maintenance tab, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Your printer will then print a page forcing ink through to clean the print cartridge nozzles.

After printing the test page, try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Lexmark X5270 printer green power lite continues to blink w/no other function. Can you advise? Jeff / plumeria1@clearwire.net


The flashing light could indicate either a communication problem between one of your cartridges and the printer, a short in one of the cartridges, paper jam or the cartridge carrier has stalled. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:


1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Make sure there are no foreign objects or debris in the feeder.

2. Open the printer cover and remove both the cartridges.

3. While the cover is open, ensure there are no paper jams and the cartridge carrier is free from obstructions.

4. Close the printer cover.

5. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

6. When the printer turns on, reinsert one cartridge first.

7. Close the printer cover and check the light status.

8. If light on printer is normal, open the printer cover and reinsert the other cartridge. Check the light status.

9. Replace whichever cartridge is causing the light to flash with a new cartridge. You can also try to insert a different known working cartridge to determine if the other is faulty.

10. Load some paper. Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Lexmark X5270 power butoon keeps blinking and no power


Try to remove the power adapter from the printer. Then unplug the power cord from the power outlet in the wall.printmastert_62.jpg
Wait at least 10 seconds before re-plugging the printer into the power source (bypass any surge devices or power strips). Reconnect the power adapter into the printer. If printer won't automatically turn on, press the power button. If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance.

How do you adjust Fontsize on a Lexmark X5270 printer? In printing out emails the font size is VERY tiny I would like to have a larger font to make reading easier.


Actually, you can change the font size through the application you're using to make your emails. Try to explore the application settings before printing your emails. The Lexmark printer nor the printer software is not capable of changing the font size of your documents on your computer.

I have a Lexmark 5270 Printer and have downloaded the software onto my HP laptop. When I try and print a document the system says "printing started" but nothing ever prints. The document is held in...

1. Click on the Windows logo start button.

5. It will pop-up a Services window. Scroll through the list and look for Print Spooler.
6. Double-click on Print Spooler, and click on the Stop button. Click on Ok button. Set the window aside.
Second, you need to clear the print jobs in the Spool folder. To do this:
1. Click on the Windows logo start button.
2. Click on Run and type Spool. Hit Ok.
3. Open Printers folder
4. Delete all the files in the Printers folder. Close the window.
Third, you have to enable the Print Spooler. To do this:
1. Go back to Services window.
2. Double-click on Print Spooler, and click on the Start button. Click on Ok button. Close the Services window. Click on the Windows logo start button. Go to Control Panel and open Printers folder.
