Pass thru sensor and flag assembly:
The tray 2 option system board did not detect a piece of paper
actuating the pass thru sensor. Remove any jammed sheets of paper
from the printer and check the pass thru sensor and flag for proper
operation by running the appropriate Tray Sensor Test from the
diagnostics menu. If the test fails, check the sensor for correct
installation and the flag for proper operation. Also check the sensor
cable to make sure it is correctly connected to the option system
board. If incorrect, replace the tray 2 option pass thru sensor
assembly.

Check these parts for signs of broken or damaged parts,
contamination on the drive rollers or wear plate and wear or damage
to the drive shaft bearings. Check the drive roll assembly and skewed
backup roller for wear, slick spots, material buildup, and oil or grease
on the rollers. Also check for proper operation of the paper aligning
assembly. Repair or replace parts as necessary.

4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

2.Disconnect the power from the printer dock for 5 seconds, then reconnect the power.
Carefully remove the paper if it does not automatically eject.
IMPORTANT:Check the paper slot on the back of the printer dock for jammed paper:

4.Reload the paper tray. Do not exceed the fill line.
5.Re-install the paper tray, then press to resume printing.

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

The paper jamed now I get a 41.3 error message and can't solve


Hello,

The error 41.3 is unexpected paper length and was caused by the printer pulling more than one sheet. Now the problem is clearing the paper jam in the paper tray. The only way I have found to get it clear is to put the printer on its back with the paper tray facing straight up. Now push the tray in just a little bit if you can and try to shake it to get the paper to shift to the other end. After a minute or two put the printer back down and try to open the tray. If you can then just put the paper back where it goes in the tray. Be sure the pickup roller is clean, no paper dust and such. then try printing again. If you still can't get the tray out then you will have to dis-assembly the printer to get it clearer. Let me know if this gets you going.

Error message keeps appearing "paper jam in tray 2" although there is definitely no paper jam.


If you did not get ALL the jammed sheet out, there is still a small piece of paper in there somewhere, probably covering a sensor or micro switch. Get a torch and look carefully. If you don't find anything you may need to disassemble the printer to find it.
