Lexmark X85 won't feed paper. When trying to


There could be something in the paper feeder that's blocking the paper path. Please follow steps below to identify and fix the problem:

1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.

2. Grab a flashlight and look inside for any debris.

3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris that could cause this error or problem.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power outlet to reset it.

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.

It needs a thorough cleaning inside, and a lube job as all of the lubrication has dried up. Call around but this type of a maintenance is usually about $25.00. J.

Lexmark x85 paper jams


I have owned several X73, X83, and X85 printers. Most of them end their life in the way that you are describing your problem. They will start by feeding the paper thru the primary load but will not feed the paper thru to be printed on and out the paper exit.

First and foremost, I advise you to unplug the printer, remove the flip top cover and turn the printer upside down and shake. I have seen items in the paper path such as a penny cause issues like this. Also make sure the paper path is clean and no small tears of paper in the way that could be blocking. If you find something check again, hopefully this is the good solution.

If that does not work, it is most likely that you need the print engine for the unit. Unfortunately this costs about $109 if you can find them (unless they got cheaper since I last checked).

If it makes you feel any better I have one that matches your's on the shelf here :) You can get a new AIO printer for $109 or just a little more.

Print Output


Try cleaning the feed rollers. these are the rubber wheels that actually contact the paper and pull it through. If they get dirty, their grip on the paper will be less than adequate. Just use some clean water, or perhaps some rubbing alcohol, and a clean rag to wipe them thoroughly.

Maybe if you hold down the cycle button and let it run through a "test cycle" to receive a printer data sheet it might clear the internal buffer or whatever you call that short term memory these printers have. Let us know. JP

Lexmark X73 print/paper problem


Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.
