Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hello Fixya - I have recently bought a Lexmark Prestige Pro 805 printer. It has worked ok from the beginning, but suddenly after having printed about 50 pages the printer won't grab the paper from the paper cassette. It tells me to insert the cassette and press continue. I have done that several times but it simply won't succeed. What is going on here? In hope for an answer Orla B. Larsen Struer, Denmark

    Hi mercadoarvin -

    Thanks for your answer and suggestions hence my problem with the paper feed.

    However it is not about the ADF but about the paper tray on the machine where I load my A4 paper.

    It tries 2 times to fetch the paper and then it says ding - ding and a yellow triangle appears saying to insert the paper tray - but the problem is that is is already there and filled with paper.

    Thansk again for your immediate answer :-)

    Hi again -

    Ok it has a 5-year warranty, so that is ok.

    I wonder if it is a general problem regarding this Pro 805 as it is my third printer with this problem ! !

    Thanks anyway for your kind advices :-)

Hi There and Welcome to Fixya,

It seems like you're having difficulties with the device's ADF (Auto Document Feeder). I have included a link below where you will find detailed solutions surrounding this, as well as guidance in proper usage, et al.

We can attribute this problem to the 'mechanical' area of the printer but we also have to ensure that we are feeding the paper correctly :

Lexmark Support

Once you got the page up, next thing to do is to look for "Top Articles" tab at the bottom. Click it and you'll find a list. Choose "ADF feed issues on the S and Pro series products" and you'll get the tech support page with all the details on how to tackle this problem, and more.

Hope this helps you out, Thank you for using Fixya.

    Thanks for responding.

    I think this require a more hardcore approach, such as parts replacement. If this printer's still under warranty, you can find the Lexmark support line in the same link I provided to inquire for repair/replacement options.

    Thanks again.
