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.IF the problem continues then its the problem with rollers in the printer ,hardware problem ,

Good luck....

I have a Lexmark Z715 Printer. It has a paper jam I cannot clear - picked up about 15 sheets of paper at one time and I cannot get it unjammed. Is there a trick to solving this problem?


Some sheets are jammed more tightly than others. Check to locate and remove the less jammed sheets to make it easier to remove the rest. With some printers, it helps to "riffle" the supply first to prevent sticking. You also may have loaded the printer with more sheets than it can handle at one time.

I have a lexmark z715 printer connected to windows xp. recently it stopped printing. the paper moves and the machine makes sounds similar to printing, but it doesn't print. i think the sound is s


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Do I need a color cartridge to print in black ink


the paper was black or blank? i think you mean blank, the ink will dry out over time replacing the cartridges will most likely solve the problem, or for the cost of the two cartridges u may want to consider a new cheap printer.

The feed rollers might be dirty from the ink. Try cleaning them with a Q-TIP with a little isopropyl alcohol.
