Question about Lexmark E340 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Paper jams Keep getting several messages. Replace photo conductor, paper jam, low toner. Lexmark said reset to factory defaults. Tried this, but says paper jam when we try to print again. There is no paper jam, have replaced photo conductor, nothing is working. What else can we try?

    Had already tried a new toner first. This is the sequence of problems.

    1. Busy Toner Low

    2. Ready Toner Low

    I try to print test page

    3. 201 paper jam remove cartridge

    I remove paper.

    4. Close Door

    I close door.

    5. Busy Toner Low

    6.Ready Toner Low

    Then we start all over again.

    Any idea?

    Lexmark toner (do not purchase generic, learned the hard and expensive way!)

  • milliken_l Aug 25, 2008

    When I open the door, the test page is half printed and it is just laying there. It is very easy to pick it up and remove. I do not have that printer here in my office, but I will try the things you have mentioned. Thank you.

There are two parts to the copy of this machine, one is the photo conductor (drum, green cylinder ***'y) and the toner which fits in the drum ***'y.
you replaced the drum but you need to replace the toner as well (low toner)
then turn off and hold the start key an dturn on to get into service mode, scroll to reset photo count, select.

    are you using punch hole paper? with this model the holes have to be towards the back or it will jam and give a code.

    does it actually pick up the paper or make the noise?

    try flipping the paper over.

    did you clean the rubber tires that pick up the paper?

    clean with alcohol, it should pick up after cleaning, may need to replace.

    it also sounds like it is not reaching the fuser (where it gets hot before the exit)

    we know the drum and toner are working and rotating (prints)

    you may also want to double check the paper size and make sure it's set for Letter.

    try the by-pass feed a single sheet in the front, does it go trough? yes then the problem is between the tray and the black spongy roller under the drum.

    does it pick up hte paper right away, or is there hesitation?

    when you open the door look in front there is a black guide that you can lift up there is a sensor there, it must be freeand have a spring action.

We have a fellowes shredder. It got full and jammed. After cleaning and emptying it will not turn on. Is there a reset button? Thanks. Betn

We've found that when the container is overfilled with shredded paper, it will begin pulling shredded paper back into the cutters and jamming the machine. Sometimes reversing the machine will spit the paper back up, but if it is thoroughly jammed, only way to unjam it is to UNPLUG it first, then manually remove the paper from the cutters. Then, be sure to dump the container BEFORE it is filled with paper.

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...

When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
