Question about Lexmark X4270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

I have 2 Lexmark printers, z42 and x4270, neither of which work. Yesterday the z42 stopped feeding paper. I found that the drive gear on the rubber roller metal shaft was cracked allowing it to slip when energized. So I tried going back to my x4270 which I gave up on some time ago. I took the good cartridges from the z42 and placed in the x4270. The readout indicates "black cartridge missing". This is why I stopped using it before. I can take a black cartridge that works in one Lexmark and place in the x4270 and get a missing cartridge message. What gives?

SOURCE: Print Cartridge Missing

I would look for a micro switch that detects the presence of the cartridge- this is either stuck in the off position or has dropped a lead.

Z42 not feeding paper


The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Finally, turn the printer upside down and carefully shake it for 10 to 20 seconds to see if something falls out of the paper feed path. Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print again.

Regards,
Sanath

Can't change Lexmark Z42 ink cartridge


You can unplug the printer from the power source. With the printer off, open the cover where the cartridge carrier is. Hold the solid white tape found in the middle inside the printer. Slowly drag the cartridge carrier to the center. Replace the cartridges. Close the cover. Plug printer back to the power source. Hope this helps.

Lexmark x4270 fax machine receives faxes but won't feed paper


Hi,

Try cleaning the rollers in X4270 printer. You may need to clean the scan lens and the white roller.

1. Unplug the power cord and the phone line from the wall.
Open the control panel.
2. Pull the roller lever forward, and then lift the white roller out of the All-In-One.
3. Use a clean, lint-free cloth dampened with water to wipe the white roller and the scan lens.
4. Reinstall the white roller.
5. Reconnect the power cord and the phone line.

Next, try to make a standalone copy and let us know the results.

Brand new Lexmark X4270 All-in-one, won't copy, fax, or print


Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
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.)
Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
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.

If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
Turn the printer off.
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.
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.




If this not work i guess your printer is defective get it replaced>>>
