Hello, the problem with your machine is a gear that drives the paper feed section, not the paper feed roller but the platen roller, well its cracked, unless you have an identical machine, you will not be able to repair this printer, i have tried. so, this machine has performed for you extremely well, but now it time to look for another one. sorry

Paper feed problem


The clicking noise is an indication that something's not right in the printer. But try taking out the cartridges from the printer. Then, close the cover. Remove all sheets of paper. Unplug the power supply from the printer. The power supply is the black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 10-15 seconds before plugging it back in. Once printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Load some paper and try to print again. If this doesn't help and you're still getting that continuous clicking noise, it's a hardware issue. If that's the case, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance. I hope I can assist you more on this.

Lexmark X83 prints streakily or not at all


Have you used a new cartridge.

Do the test for running and cleaning new cartridge heads and the alignment procedure..

(Go to Start, settings, printers, right click on printer then click properties, cartridge maintenance.)

Other thing that might cause problem is build up of ink in right side of machine below printer cartridges.

You will have to strip down machine to get at this area.
Make a note of exactly what action you take when doing this so that you can bits back together.

I use cotton buds to get at the build up of ink or tissue wound round end of pointed object.
Go gently. When you have cleared what you can care reassemble bits and go through above procedure again. Check for any unusual noises that may denote part of mechanism has worn.

Sounds like there is something like a part of a sticky address label, or a piece of other paper stuck inside.

Take a heavy piece of card stock and feed it through the paper path. Chances are, when you get the card stock all the way through, it will push out the offending object that is hung in the paper path.

Paper will not feed into printer


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.
