Question about Lexmark X4550 Multifunction Wireless Color Inkjet Printer

Open Question

Lexmark x4550 wireless won't feed paper - gets sucked in and jams up at the back. Can't see any obstructions. If I reach inside and manually turn white cogs to feed paper, it goes through, but when I then try to print test page, the roller seems to push the paper backwards ! If I lift lid and peer in to the right, there's a bit of metal that looks like a paperclip - not sure if it's a sensor that's supposed to be there, or the foreign body causing the problem. Gentle tugging doesn't seem to dislodge it. Have tried removing screws to remove the grey plastic cover, but it still seems firmly attached - do I just have to prise it ? thanks

I thought I got all FOD out of my printer, till I turned it up side down.

Pencils apparently find the x2350 very comfortable.

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams


Frances;
I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
Note:
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

Faulty paper feed


There is a sticker or piece of paper inside the printer. TO fix this, some parts needs to be removed so the foreign object obstructing the paper path can be removed from the printer.

Printer Lexmark X4550 not taking paper, (Quick Fix)
Hi, yes my printer had the same problem with the pick up rollers not taking paper,
and thought it would be a simple job to adjust the springs inside the printer? But no, I could not find to open the printer. So I devised a simple modification using a
thin flat spring I had taken from an old windscreen wiper blade. see instructions
Good luck, bigvern

My Lexmark did the same thing-if you can get in at the rollers to clean them that might help.

Paper jam in the lexmark x4550


If you know someone who is handy with this kind of stuff, you should get them to open the printer up and remove the paper. You could also try to just send sheets of paper through to see if they can dislodge it (but that may cause paper jams as well).
