To remove your problem follow the simple tecnique. 1. Open paper feeder. 2. In the paper feeder you will see a white feed roller gide. 3. Remove the roll gide from paper feeder. 4. In the center of the roll gide you may see a spring inside it. Remove it and set all the parts of the printer again. I think you will be relive from your problem. Thank you.
The feeder on this model has 1 weak mounting place for the gears that drive the feed roller. The plastic stud that holds the gear will break off of the frame and cause the noises you hear and no paper feed. The only fix is to replace the sheet feeder assembly, about $30.00 for the part.
Did you replace paper feeder with new one? Most paper feeder problem are rubber at paper pick up roller (bottom side) and small spring at bottom paper pick up roller. Check for "something" slip at paper feeder and lubrication at paper feeder mechanic.
Check first the rollers and stripper pad if they are very sticky, just replace those roller. If not you can dismantle the covers on the feeders.find a solenoid and check the spring that attach on it. If the spring is broken replace it or just make a loop from the spring and reintall it from the solenoid. Then try to feed paper.
You may have to fabricate a new anchor for one end of the spring on the side opposite the control panel. There is a wimpy plastic tab that breaks off here, right next to a black Phillips-head screw. Remove this screw and bend a piece of light wire around it, leaving a small hooked end sticking out for the spring to fasten on to. Replace the screw and install the spring. When you install the spring, it must go over the top of the tiny white plastic wheel, in the U-shaped groove.
This is how I repaired my PC430 several years ago and it's still working fine.
Same problem here. Went thru a few tests with Lexmark but didnt help. They next said it would be best to get new one since repair cost would be higher. Thru front door I do see a spring that moves freely. That must be broke. After their help they sent email for 20% off.
