    Mine does the same thing, and I think it has to do with the white enternal clamps on the bottom of the printer. Worked great until they popped off and now currently bouncing around inside. Need help with how to fix this if that is not the reason

With all things in life that deal with mechanics, I find problems are one of two issues. Either it is an operator's fault or the equipment actually failed. 9 out 10 times the individual is a complete idiot. It is a scanner people. If it is broke then bring it back and get a new one! Find something else to GOOGLE if you have spare time.

The printer keeps telling me it's out of paper, which it isn't


1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.

Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.

Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.

Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.

Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.

Pull out the extension completely.

Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.

Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp.
If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.

Saying paper jam dcp-135c brother printer


 Hello there,If the paper is lodged too far into the printer and can't be removed: Press the power button to turn the printer off. 
Pull firmly on the paper to remove it. If you can't reach the paper because it is too far in, raise the front cover and remove the paper from the front of the printer. 
Close the front cover. 
Press the power button to turn the printer back on. 
Resend your document to print.

Ensure that: 
The paper is a recommended paper for Laser printers. 
You do not force the paper down into the printer when you load it. For example, if you are loading letter or A4 size paper, the top edge of the paper should extend above the top of the sheet feeder. 
The printer is on a flat, level surface. 
The left paper guide is against the side of the paper. 
You do not load too much paper in the sheet feeder. Depending on the thickness of your paper, the sheet feeder can hold up to 100 sheets of paper. 
The left paper guide does not cause the paper to bend in the sheet feeder. 
Your printer feeds regular paper as expected. If regular paper feeds without causing problems, load the envelopes vertically against the right side of the sheet feeder. Make sure the paper guide is against the side of the envelopes. 
Envelopes or the appropriate specialty papers are selected in the printer driver. 
You are using a paper or envelope size supported by your printer.

LEXMARK 2470 PAPER FEEDER PROBLEM


1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button. (On the X83, press the Select button.)
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Good luck....

I have a Lexmark X3550 printer There is a paper way down inside that cannot be reached Tried the automatic remove and it does nothing. What should I do?This machine is only a few months old.


Bending the bottom exit tray will allow it to be removed. Simply remove tray and wipe rollers right in front of the bar that the ink slides back and forth on. Most printers get a lttle dust on the rollers then they wont feed. Hope this Helps.Sincerely Brian @ Game-On Computers.
