It seems you have some piece of paper in the carrier.
Could be just a very small piece somewhere in it... remove the cover and take a very close look. Check all rolls if they are loose or if something is locking them.

I bought this printer a couple months ago because I loved my last Lexmark and this was on sale. Worst printer in the history of printers. Won't print, jobs get stuck in spooler, plus a hundred other small problems that make printing one piece of paper a major event.
Dump it and buy something else because there is no solution to your problem.

When printing the paper is not drawn down straight - pulls to one side - and then becomes jammed. This has happened over and over. Is there a wheel or something of track - can I fix this myself. Thanks...


There could be something that's blocking the paper feed system. Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area.


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.

Error 1203 and carrier jam error


Error 1203 on a Lexmark is an issue that occurs either when a cartridge is bad or the printer cartridge Slot is bad... I would suggest you to try cleaning the copper contacts of the both carts and cart slot in the printer and try again..

If that doesn't work just call up their support number and check for replacement..

your encoder strip(a transprent strip behind the carriage) is either broken or loosed up and so it is not able to get self aligned.kindly fit the encoder properly or change the encoder if neccessary.encoders are usually very cheap.wish u luck!!

Lexmark 5400 series paper jam


As several previous posts said there was a pieces of paper folded up inside. Per a previous post remove the sheet feeder rack. At this point I removed the two outside screws (of the three) on the backe. After this the whole top lifts about 3/4 inch (19mm) to give your fingers more room to clear it. Looks like she will print another day.

Thanks for the tips on here.

Lexmark 5400 series printer


Just today, our Lexmark 5400 began having paper jam issues. We'd try to print, and the paper would initially feed into the back and then wouldn't go any further. Then it gave printer jam error messages. After peering and poking into various areas of the unit I wound up disconnecting the printer from power, phone line, and USB connection, I took it to a better lit room.

Peering carefully into the back paper feed area, I discovered a pencil!! After excising the pencil, the printer worked fine. One of my precious children must have accidentally dropped a pencil into the back, or a pencil was resting on top of the unit and rolled into the back paper feed area.
Lesson learned, don't put pens or pencils on top of the printer.
