Paper feed jamming problem

My Lexmark X5470 has been fine(ish) for about a year now, then it suddenly started palying up.

When I try to print a document, it tries to feed the paper in, then it kind of feeds it in diagonally from the left corner and crumples it all up, sometimes the ink cartridges carry on and say printing complete, but obviously the paper is still jammed.

Please help!!

Rint,copy,scan or fax on my x5470 lexmark all in one. I unplug and restart compture and the fax still says paper jam check rollars dont see noughting.


Leading cause of paper jams is debris / foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please try this approach to fix the problem:

  1. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder.
  2. Grab a flashlight and look inside the feeder for any debris or foreign objects.
  3. If you're willing and physically able, you may also carefully turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.
  4. If feeder is clear, place the printer on the table. Open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.
  5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions in the paper path.
  6. Close the printer cover.
  7. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into. Re-plug after 30 seconds.
  8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Hi my name is Lecette. I am having some trouble printing on my lexmark x5470 printer. When I print the paper slides in 3 inches and starts to crumble up and jams. Is there any way you can assist me with...


if the paper is crumpling up then something is stopping the paper from moving check the paper path for obstructions. if your first set of feed roller are moving and the second set is not then this will happen also

Paper does not feed into lexmark X5470 all in one printer


feeding problems
not take apaper
not feed a paper

hey im tuval from israel,
first of all im sorry about my english :)
and now to the point.......
look, if you know where the feeding wheel its good (like elastic material over this wheel) , now take a"nail cleaner" (aceton)
and clean this wheel (the elastic thing), i did thet and the problem is gone!!!
after the cleanning send 15-20 empty doc to print (remember - empty, dont use you ink - you dont have to - save money), if all the paper is out from the printer,
you fix that.

i hope i help you.
tuval.

Paper jam


I have had this problem with other printers. What I did is to take a sheet of Card Stock 8.5" x 11" , putting it in the Feed and push the print button while applying a small amount of pressure on the card stock. Sometimes a small piece of paper gets in the path way and indicates a paper jam. Could be another problem that is causing the jam indication. Worth a try. Bud

When print jobs are stuck in the print que like this I would check your firewall software to insure that the correct things are "allowed" access.

Lexmark X5470 printer says, "Clear paper jam, then press check mark."


  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.
