Question about Lexmark C530dn Laser Printer

1 Answer

The paper tray on my Lexmark 530dn k has intermittently been telling me the paper tray is not inserted even though it is. I used to be I could pull out and reinsert the tray a few times to get it to sense the tray. Now it's all the time. I can't find the little sensor that reads the tray presence, I'd like to just hotwire it so I can keep printing.

I have a lexmark e238. Keeps showing paper jam light after cleaning rollers even though no paper is in there.


Either paper is moving too slow through the paper path or one of your paper path sensors is not registering. Pull the paper tray out and check to make sure the little plastic sensor is swinging free. That sensor tells when the tray is empty. Follow the paper path thru the printer checking all the sensors to make sure they are "opening" and "closing".

Please check if the paper guides on the paper tray are correctly positioned. For example, if you are using a letter sized paper, make sure the guides are set to 8"x11".

Lexmark E232, keeps telling me paper tray is empty even though it has paper in the tray, then it just keeps clicking instead of picking up the paper and feeding into the printer? Please help


Go the Lexmark website and search on support for their telephone number. I've always had a experience with their support team even if the printer is out of warranty.

Using Lex. 4'x6" paper, my 901 is not


To properly lay the 4 X 6 in paper in the tray, please follow the steps below:
  • Pull tray completely out of the printer.
  • Move the paper guides to the sides of tray.

Even though my printer settings are set to print and use the paper in tray 1 - the printer wants to pull from the bypass tray (which always pulls crooked). The printer used to work just fine then the alert...


Two things to check for a problem like this:
1) Driver Settings:
If your computer's drivers are telling the machine to pull from the bypass tray it'll ignore the machine settings. You're kind of on your own here figuring it out, if you can't though then try deleting the printer from the computer and re-installing it (will default settings)

2) Manual Feed sensor:
When you put paper into the bypass try you're activating a flag which tells a sensor there's paper there, if this flag is stuck forcing the sensor to constantly think you have paper there it would always to pull from there. Find the flag, move it back and forth, hit it with some air from a can of air.

Print from both trays


Not sure with a that Model, but on HP lasers, you just tell the printer that the trays both have the same paper in - i.e. Plain Letter. When one runs out, the other takes over.
If the printer thinks one tray is Plain and one is i.e. Bond paper, it won't switch trays even if the same physical paper is in there.
Go through the control panel on the front of the printer, or if it doesn't have one, you'll need to use the web interface to set this up.

Paper source


I would suggest checking printer properties in the computer and ensure the paper size and source is Letter and set to Automatic Choose. Another choice may be to deleted the printer driver and re-install it. You can also go into the menu options until you get to Set factory defaults, press Select, then try the print job again.
I really suspect a program is controlling this from the computer.
To get a list of the existing printer settings, Select Menu and use the Right Arrow button until you get to Printer Menu Settings. The printed report should tell you what your actuall settings are. Maybe the default is set to Custom, instead of Letter.
The Set Factory Defaults option should fix most problems.

Lexmark 642 printer on network will not print to tray three. When anything is sent to tray 3 it goes to tray 2 even though we set it up in our application to trigger $C(27)_?&15H?


I have found that if the print job needs a certain paper size and the tray is reporting a different size loaded into it then the job will pull from the next tray with an acceptable size. Lexmark's paper stops in the trays are easily moved by the wieght of paper loaded in it. If the job requires "Letter" checnk the size tabs on the left side of the tray, they are on the outside of the tray. For "Letter" just the buttom 2 tabs should be sticking out, adjust the green back stop until just the bottom 2 tabs are sticking out and try your print job again.
