Question about Lexmark P315 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

RE: Printer not ejecting paper

The problem with my Lexmark 315 isn't that it doesn't print. It starts the procedure as it always does, but then doesn't finish feeding out the paper at the end. I have this big glob of ink...."where it seems," that internally something stops working. I tried clearing the two rubber rollers in case of glazing or paper dust causing it to bogg down. But the problem has persisted. So, please send me any suggestions that might help me fix my printer. Thanks in advance. My e-mail address is:

I have the same problem and have been inside and found a cracked cog which should drive the axle for the last set of rollers. I am trying to glue it, but really need to replace the part. See how easy the last set of rollers are to turn. Turn them by hand as the photo comes out to see if this is the issue.

My Lexmark 7300 printer will not eject the paper all the way when finished printing.

Check the printer paper size for your printing application.
Adjust it to the qualities of the one you are using.

How do I correct this printing problem? My colored letters on the page print. Black print doesn't print onto the paper. I have a lexmark z615 printer.

Try to clean the print cartridge nozzles. On your computer, open the Lexmark Solution Center by going to the Start menu > Programs / All Programs > Lexmark Z600 Series > click the Maintenance tab > under Select Maintenance tool, select Clean to fix horizontal streaks > click Print. The printer will then print a test page forcing ink through the cartridge nozzles and clean them.
If that doesn't help, remove the black cartridge and try to manually wipe the cartridge nozzles with a slightly moistened soft cloth to clean it from dirt and clogs. After wiping the nozzles, reinsert the cartridge into the printer. Print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.
If the problem continues, try to insert a different known working black cartridge to identify if it's a faulty cartridge issue.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

Hello, I got on my printer a Samsung CLP-315 always a red light <--> also when it print's it stops in the middle... Isn't there a reset buttom? Thank you

  1. Hello Charlotte, to reset your printer you have to do the following action
  1. The printer and the computer must be on
Hold down the "Stop" button (shaped like a triangle) for at least five seconds. A Network Configuration page should print out, showing the IP address of the printer. Even if it doesn't, the IP address with display on the printer monitor. Write it down.Open Internet Explorer and enter the IP address after "http://." As an Example, "" And press "Enter." You will be taken to Samsung's SyncThru Web Service. you do not actually need to be connected to the Internet for this to work. on that page Click "Reset" and Click "Clear."

There is something preventing the printer to grab the paper to keep it from printing. I have checked to make sure that nothing is inside there, and there isn't. It rolls like its going to print,...

Try to remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. If you are physically able and willing, carefully turn the printer upside down. Any foreign objects or debris that may have accidentally fallen into the feeder should just freely roll out of it. If feeder is clear, place the printer down. Open the printer cover and make sure the paper path in the cartridge area is free from obstructions. Close the printer cover. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reload some paper and try to print again.
If the problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

CLP-315 all at once started to paper jam on every sheet with the paper about 3/4 of the way out of the fuser, partially in the tray. The printing is only on about 3/4 of the page as well. I looked...

If you make a print, look in the printer driver (ctrl +P, then go to properties) Look if you have selected the correct paper size.
Laser printers are very sensitive on humidity of the paper, so if this solution doesn't work, it can be that your paper is not good anymore (maybe you store it at a dry/warm/humid place). In that case you can try to use a new pack of paper (from a sealed package).

Lexmark E342n. The paper jams after it prints and before ejecting. Paper is not wringled when pulled out. I open the back door and the end is there. It is like it is using shorter paper then letter.

Power off the printer, check the entire paper path of the printer for any jammed sheets of paper or other obstructions. Remove any obstructions you find and try printing again. Check if the page setting may be incorrect or paper size and the paper size settings do not match and make sure that the paper size in the printer driver settings matches the paper in the tray.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support.

Lexmark T632 top tray is ejected when empty

Set tray 2 to be default tray. When this is empty, the printer moves to tray 3, and then on to tray 1.
