Lexmark X4550 all-in-one Paper feeds only half way then jams


Frances;
I'm not Lexmark certified; however, paper motion fails are generic in nature. Paper motion fail can be a bit difficult to diagnose at a distance...
* If it jams at every sheet then check to insure there is not a bit-o-paper stuck from a previous jam.
* If it has been an issue that has been increasingly getting worse than I'd replace the pick-up roller(s)
* Lexmark's support page for your printer is below. (You can also find a service prover too)
* Parts order for your printer is also below. You can determine at the support page if your comfortable replacing pick-up rollers in that model printer.
support lexmark com Service Parts
Note:
* Frequently people tear a jammed sheet when it comes out leaving pieces behind. BAD! When you get a torn sheet in your printer insure you retrieve all the pieces. Those left behind guarantee a jam on your next try.
* Paper jams not caused by debris in the path or worn pick-up roller(s) is beyond user maintenance.

The photo paper does not feed into printer. I


Get hold of the photocard and try, with your fingers, to curve the end that goes into the printer first so that it doesnt resist as the machine tries to pick it. Just curve/bend it little upwards, not downwards. Usually this kind of problem is temporal and happens especially when the card is a bit too hard for the machine.

HP printer will not feed paper through the rollers


Pick up some Print Roller Cleaner spray, and carefully spray your rollers. As time goes on, fibres from the paper embed in the rollers, which reduce their efficiency to pickup and feed paper. Spray all the rollers and set it dry. You should find that your printer feeds paper. If not, you need a new roller set, available from the HP Spares, or a good local HP Dealer.

Printer dock won't print. Says ''no Paper,'' but is full


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Care to let us know what the error message says, or so should we just pick one from the air?

Not printing at all: does that mean it goes through the motions of printing - like feeds paper, head moves back and forth but paper comes out blank or that it sits there like an ornament no matter what you do?

If you give no information about the problem, you will get no answers.

Paper Feed Problem


This is caused by the solenoid that is activated when picking up the paper. The solenoid is activated and the device goes through the motions of picking up the paper. It fails to pick up the paper or fully feed it past the leading edge sensor resulting in a jam error. You should replace the pick up solenoid assy and also the pick up roller and friction pads.
