Ok what you need is a torch as one problem with rear loading printers is that on the side that it isn't feeding properly you will probably find something like a paper clip thats just fallen down and in the path of the paper (once i found a felt tip pen in one)
if the path is clear then depending on the age of the printer it could possibly be that the tyres that pick up the paper are worn out, a temperary solution is to clean the tyres with a damp cloth to remove any paper dust, it also gives a bit more stickiness to the rubber (make sure the machine is unplugged and that the cloth isn't dripping wet, just damp)

Paper will not feed

Hi, maybe there is still a little bit of jammed inside that you can\'t see. Try to see if there is and clean it. If you\'re sure there is no paper jam whatsoever, then there is a conflict with your feeding sensors or your cartridge isn\'t properly installed.
kind regards

Fax on Lexmark 901 pro not feeding

Does it also jam when you're just copying or scanning? Try to check if the scanner is closed all the way down. The cover needs to be closed all the way down for the paper to flow properly from the ADF to the exit tray.

My Lexmark PRO205 seems to have eaten a staple. How do I disassemble it enough to get at the paper feed mechanism?

If you're fit enough to turn the printer upside down, try to do that and shake the printer with the scanner cover open.

Have lexmark 1200 series will not feed paper i

turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper. although you did this, there might be a small particle hanging you up. I have experienced this before. see if both sides have cogs that catch the roller, one might be offset?

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document and clean cartridge heads', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Lexmark all in one new printer

Hi Susie,
This could be due to a dirty feed roller or maybe the type of paper that you are using. What you can do is inspect the feed roller and make sure there is no debris or dirt in it. You will find the roller at the end of the paper tray. Hope it helps.

Paper will not feed through the printer . . , ''paper jam'' message appears . How can i open the printer to check for a paper jam? I have a Lexmark X83 printer/copier/scanner.

behind the printer there is the tray that can be opened easily to check if the printer is jammed in or the paper feed sensor is stuck up.just open the back tray of your printer and check.
get back if you require more assistance on this.
