First of all, Remove all the cartridges, turn off the machine, disconnect both usb cable and power cord from the unit, wait for few minutes (10 mins), reconnect the power cord, again turn back on the printer, reinstall all the cartridges, check the status once again and if the problem persists, try to check for broken pieces of or other foreign particles like thread or hair. You'll need to pull out both the front and the rear tray (Input and output tray), look carefully and if possible use a blower to blow through the passage, from top to front or from front to top. Once again, turn off the machine and turn back on and check the status. If the problem persists follow the instructions here (click here).

Please do this slowly and make sure you wait as mentioned above. Even if you don't see actual paper, something might have been interrupted the sensor, it'll be cleared after few attempts.

Let me know if you still have the issue.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I am positive there is no paper jam with my printer (Z2420) but message of paper jam still appears and it won't let me clear it.


Sometimes a very small piece of paper can still be in the printer paper path after clearing a jam especially if the paper tears while removing the jam. The piece of paper may be too small to notice. Try blowing out the paper area with compressed air. Other causes could be the thickness of paper you are trying to print on, ie photo paper, thicker bond paper. Make sure the print settings match the paper thickness. I have a Lexmark laser printer, and I will get feed problems if the settings are not set for the correct paper type.

I hope this helps.

How to open for clearing paper jam


Hi,
You will need to open you printer and look for pieces of paper in odd places or see if the paper sensor lever is in the right position. You can also try unplugging the printer and waiting about 1 minute then plugging it back in. See if that gets rid of the message. Some models will allow you to forward a page of paper though the printer even though there is a paper jam. If you can do that then that might clear the jam. Give it a shot!
Good Luck!

Where is the paper jam when the panel of our Lexmark C750 says "200 paper jam"


Primary: Paper is jammed at the printer input sensor. Open the printer left door to access the paper jam. If sheets have been accumulated to be stapled or offset when the jam occurred, the printer alternately flashes the primary and secondary messages to indicate that all accumulated sheets not be removed during the jam clearing procedure.
Secondary: When this message is displayed, do not remove accumulated sheets during the jam clearing procedure as the printer will not reprint the removed sheets. Also, if the accumulated sheets are removed, the portion of the job printed after the jam will not be stapled.

How do i clear a paper jam


The Lexmark Printer you are having a very sensitive printer.

Normally this tyoe of Printers are very very slow in Printing job.
Comparing with other laserjet used.

If the Laptop / Printer are under warranrty, the Service engineer
can rectifity the printer jamming.

Solutins :

Make the Printer - Monthly service compulsory.
Use only good quality paper in the Lexmark Printer.
Do not pull the paper through hand, when the print out is coming.

202 pam jam


usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence

Lexmark X5150 won't accept paper.


More then likely with it doing that. Something is in the paper path blocking one side of the paper.

Clear paper jam


Sometimes there is little bits of paper stuck inside a sensor causing the printer to detect a jam. Use an air duster can to and shoot some air at all the sensors. The sensors look like little plastic fingers that get pushed down when paper moves over them.
