I have a lexmark x6530 printer and i have a paper jam how do i get the paper out it tore when i tried to remove it

Please try this approach:
  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Paper jam warning

There must be somewhere still a tiny piece of paper. To check if the tomer is also good without a piece of paper stuck, put in a new tomer and see if the light is fine then. also try not to overload the paper tray just a few papers there and make sure there is no paper open all doors to the printer top and side and look for that small piece that is stuck somewhere
good luck
Please rank me good

4"x6" Photo paper is stuck inside the [rinter and won't unjam. I can't even see it from the back or front of printer

There is always a way to get at the paper but it may mean taking apart some of the printer to access it. Best solution is to make sure paper is removed more carefully and it doesn't rip when you remove it.

Poor Printer Quality

If you have the old drum put it back in and see what happens to the copy. if is better, then yu may have a bad new drum. They do have them. Poor copy quality is normally drum or toner in these Brothers. This model is an excellent machine by the way.
