I have had this problem happen to me repeatedly. I am not sure what model of printer you have, but in my case, the rollers needed replaced. I am not sure if your printer is connected to a server or just your computer, but it is also important to keep your software up to date as well, check Lexmark's website periodically for updates.

Turn off and back on. If the error is still there, look in different areas of the printer, somewhere there is a piece of paper stuck. Sometimes when clearing a jam, little pieces will get stuck in the rollers and you just need to search for them and remove them to clear the sensors.

usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence

SOURCE: Keep getting an error message

If you can't see any paper stuck inside the printer when you open the rear door or when you remove the toner cartridge, the rear paper flag is either stuck or broken.
The flag is a small piece of plastic which sits at the rear of the fuser and as the paper exits the fuser it pushes the flag down. The easiest way to see this is to remove the rear door then the rear cover (two screws).
If it's broken you'll require a replacement fuser (i don't think you can get the part separtely), but if you have recently installed a maintenance kit, i would contact the supplier and ask for a replacement.

SOURCE: 202 Paper Jam

A 202 error usually means that there is a problem with the fuser, more than likely the fuser exit sensor is jammed - either with a piece of paper, or the return spring on the sensor has stuck. Check this sensor, making sure it can return to the upright position freely. This should clear the problem. If it doesn't, or the sensor arm is broken, a new fuser should solve this problem

well with my experience with my opinion crappy lexmark printers there is a senser on the fuser behind the cover it could be jammed down saying there is paper in the fuser when there isnt try lifting it and then flicking it down a few times to work it loose so it springs back all the time and then re-assemble the printer and try it now. hope that works for you had the same problem at work with another model and that is what was wrong with it. good luck

202 paperjam open rear door. My printer did have a paper jam and we removed all the paper we could find, but that message won't go away and it hasn't worked since! HELP!


Hello and Welcome to FixYa

Start by following the steps below to get the paper out from the machine.
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.



Advanced

If that doesn't help then you would have to start taking apart the machine to find the jammed paper and remove it, its not something a just anyone should do unless you have experience.

you may have to take the machine to a repairer to get the jammed paper bits out of the machine, if you don't see paper jammed in the machine it does not mean that there wouldn't be a paper jam somewhere in the unit along the paper path. Some of the switches or sensors might have gotten stuck.

Keep getting an error message "202 Paper Jam Open Rear Door", cannot clear the message. We ordered a maintenace kit maybe 3 months ago.
