Paper feed won't pick up paper. tried to put single paper in but paper jam light goes on but no paper located. we think we need new rollers for the paper feed but not sure where to get them in...


The paper pick up fingers and rollers get smooth and polished with use and then slide on the paper. Clean the rollers and pick mechanisms with isopropyl alcohol to rejuvenate them and restore their grip on the paper. Do this as far along the paper path as you can get, using Q Tips where necessary and turn the rollers to clean their whole surfaces.

I have a lexmark e2e2 printer that starts to feed the paper then stops, I have checked the feedrollers, they pick up the paper and start to advance it, I have replace the fron paper sensor and still will...


You may not have to replace the rollers. I had that same problem and all I did was turn the rubbers on the rollers inside out. The problem is that the rubbers have become too smooth to grab the papers.

My printer does not pick up the paper sheets from the paper tray.When I took paper sheet in to slot it works.


Well - I don't know if this will solve it (since there could be many causes) but it worked for me.

1 - Remove Paper Tray
2 - look at rubber rollers in printer undercarriage
3 - carefully remove "rubber bands" from roller
4 - turn rubber bands inside out and carefully return to rollers

5 - remove toner cartridge
6 - remove print drum assembly
7 - return printer drum assembly and toner cartridge

the roller trick helps the printer pick up paper
the toner/print drum trick helps reseat the inner workings of the printer correcting any misalignments that impede paper flow

Paper jams no matter what stock I use; Lexmark e232


In this Case take out the Paper from the Paper Feed Tray........ Unplug the Power Supply from the Printer.......... Remove both the Cartridges from the Printer.......... Now take a size 10 Envelope fold it so that it should become like a thin long strip........ Now Insert that Envelope on the left side corner of the Printer and move it from right to left and left to right as fast as u can for about 10 times.......... Now Insert the Ordinary Papers onto the Printer and insert both the catridges and Turn on the Printer....
Good Luck

PAPER JAM


The problem sounds like your rollers have lost their grip. Remove the paper tray and tip the printer up. Push the red lever on the left of the printer down and you will see the feed mechanism with two wheels. Remove the rubbers on the wheels and turn them inside out. Replace them on the wheels with the worn side now inside and the 'sticky" side out. You should get at least another couple of years worth of use before you need to replace them.

Rotate tires. Pull out paper tray. Pull down on red low paper indicator at left bottom. Two rollers come down on axel near center. I pulled off the rubber tire like roller, then twisted the roller inside out and reinstalled it with the fresh side out.
If tires dry out again will probably buy new ones from ebay.

Lexmark E232 - Tray-1 Paper Problem


Have the same problem after 1,500 pages! This was Lexmark's solution (and it worked)...

Take the paperfeed tray out and you will see a red lever , press it
downwards and you will see the paperfeed rollers coming down , you need to
pull the rubber tyres off those rollers and place them inside out over
them and then try printing any document. Check the paper weight and
the paper type you need to use 20 pounds regular paper and try runnning a
can of compressed air inside the machine.
If rubber tyres on the paper feed rollers are totally worned out you
need to replace the feed rollers.

Doesn't recognise draw full of paper.


I had exactly the same problem. It is caused by the paper feed rollers becoming shiny and failing to get a grip on the paper. The cure is easy. Disconnect the cables, remove the paper tray and turn the printer upside down. Carefully peel off the two rubber 'tyres' on the ends of the feed roller, turn them inside out, and refit them. Reassemble the printer and it should work perfectly. Obviously, you can only do this once......!

Printer jam


There is an easy fix for Lexmark E232 paper jams at the beginning of the paper path. This fix only works when the problem is that the paper starts to feed, but does not quite make it out of the paper tray.

The problem is the pickup paper rollers. If you remove the paper tray and press down on the paper indicator (the red lever to the left of the paper tray) you can see the twin rollers attached to a spring loaded armature.

Chances are these rollers are worn and are very smooth to the touch. This slick smooth surface does not have enough friction to push the paper up to the next roller.

To fix this, remove both rollers, they slide off easily. Then simply turn both rollers inside out and replace them on the armature. Notice how much "stickier" they feel now? Chances are your paper jam problems are over, until the rollers wear out again.

At that point you will have to replace them.

Paper keeps jamming


My husband and I found that if you hold down the red lever to the left of the paper drawer, you can get the unit to print. Something about the paper roller not coming down to pull the paper into the machine is why it keeps jamming. Good luck
