Lexmark x5470 paper not feeding properly

The detection of paper seems to stop the printer feeding the paper properly. Was told that it's a small spring that is delicate that detects the paper being fed. I can see the spring just at the top of the rollers. By the way I feed the paper one at at time so it's never had several sheets in.I have had this problem before and had the printer serviced by a local company. I am reluctant to do it again so am looking for a service manual so that I can (take a few bits apart),sort it myself after all it is a cheap machine don't want to keep paying £30 a time. I cannot find a disassembly guide or manual just wondered if another printers series manual would help with the 5470 instead. Many thanks for your help and any suggestions.

    I load paper into the printer, but it refuses to feed. If I attempt to assist with feeding paper, only half my material prints. It's very frustrating.

I've just solved our printer problem!!!! SO, so happy!
Tried cleaning the rollers and as I was lifting the spring loades flaps I could see someting white on the left side, so got a tweezers to pinch it out.....Lo and behold a chewing gum flew out!! ( unchewed ). This has been a nightmare for past few months since my husband couldnt recieve faxes for work.

Its like winning the lottery!!!!! Can you tell that I'm happy?

Clean the feed wheels by cleaning with a damp paper or cloth towel. It is kind of hard to get to unless you can take off the back cover. You might try a long handled "Q tip" like the Drs. office has.

Lexmark X5490 paper will not feed rollers seem to slip. will work if you help the paper into the printer.


Sounds like the feed rollers are dirty. Use a mild detergent or soapy water and a clean cloth and clean the rubber rollers that turn to feed in the paper.
Do not use alcohol this could dry out and shorten the life of the rollers.

My lexmark x5470 printer is jammed inside and I cant seem to be able to open it in order to get the paper jam out of it. Any suggestions?


Hi,
You can try the following. Press and hold the check mark untill you hear the printer turning the rollers. That will cause the printer to try to feed a paper sheet. If that does not pulls the jammed paper out then you will probably have to find a way to remove maybe using some long nose pliers.

Hi my name is Lecette. I am having some trouble printing on my lexmark x5470 printer. When I print the paper slides in 3 inches and starts to crumble up and jams. Is there any way you can assist me with...


if the paper is crumpling up then something is stopping the paper from moving check the paper path for obstructions. if your first set of feed roller are moving and the second set is not then this will happen also

Paper keeps jamming, seems to want to pull on one side only when part feeded. x5470


then check out the roller by dismantling the printer. check if the roller has jammed in one side where the paper does not get inside..
