If you look down the gap where the paper is fed, viewed from the front of the machine, you will see on the right hand side, down in the depths a roller, probably grey.
this roller grips the paper when a print is requested,and feeds it to the mechanics below.
If it doesn't the paper doesn't move and a paper feed error is issued, try cleaning the roller,or replace.

Re: Out of Paper
It sounds like your paper sensor is defaulting, or you could have foreign material blocking the paper from loading so the paper sensor can pick it up. Check out this first and repost if not the problem. Thoroughly check inside unit and down the back for blockages or debris.

I think you need to do is reinstall you software driver for the print program and start with known parameters. Then you can try to clean the heads. You should get something out of the printer if the heads are plugged it might be a dot or smear on the paper.
If the printer is making noice as it is preparing to print but does not take paper, then it has broken gears inside. Disasembly takes a lot of time and the spare part is called "printer mechanics" which is the half of the printer.
Please try to add or set up the printer again and set it as default printer. and then try to print the test page.
If not, remove the cartridge and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until inks flows on the paper. Return the cartridges and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times. Then try to print again.

As soon as I started using recycled ink cartridges, I started getting a paper jam error on my printer. The control panel message instructs me to remove the back panel and clear paper jam. I've done this several times but there is no paper to clear and the message keeps coming back. I've tried turning of the printer and unplugging it to clear the memory, but that doesn't help. Could it be that the chip on the ink cartridge is messing with the printer's operating system?
Most new printers and copiers will attempt to feed paper several times before failing and giving a jam condition. It sounds like that is what is happening to your printer.
Your tray rollers may be dirty. Remove the tray and use a clean cloth with mild detergent to clean the rubber rollers. Do not use alcohol this will dry the rollers out. If problem continues replace the tray rollers.
The compatible cartridges for the X4530 Lexmark printer are the # 23,23A,24,24A,31,34,35.
If you have the correct cartridge number and still says cartridge incorrect, try this steps.
1. Get a damp and a dry paper towel. 2. Set the ink cartridge right side up on the damp paper towel so that the ink nozzles are against the towel and hold the cartridge in this position for about 15 seconds. ( try this for around 5 times ) 3. Now wipe the print head (on the bottom where the ink comes out) across in one direction only (left to right) until it looks clean. ( try this around 5 times ) 4. Next dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure that the ink is flowing. 5. Remove the power adaprtor behind the printer. 6. Using the dry paper towel, clean the metal contacts on the cartridge carrier inside the printer. ( try this 5 times ) 7. Place the Cartridge back to the printer, connect the power adaptor. 8. Check if there is any error message.
If same problem persist, try to contact Lexmark Technical Support.
clean you print que it prints all the pages because the print button was pressed several times so for to empty the print que unplug itwait 30 seconds then restart the printer if you press print more than once all the pages will print when the printer is turned on safety measure
Look where you put the paper in. See if you can see inside there and see the roller that turns and picks up the paper. If you can, make a mixture of alcohol and a little dish soap. Damp a rag with it, and reach in there to clean the rollers. See if the rollers will turn manually, but be careful not to force anything. Another way to get to the whole roller, would be to start making a print, while watching the rollers. As soon as the rollers have turned half way, unplug the printer. Now you can reach the other side and clean that.
There is another way to clean the rollers. Using the alcohol mix, take a single sheet of paper, and damp one half of it with the solution. Stick the single sheet in the paper tray, and make a print, but hold on to the paper so that it doesn't feed through the machine. Do this several times, and the rollers turning against the wet paper should clean them.
Try to print again. It might take a few tries. The rollers have to turn against the paper and dry themselves off again.
If this works, then you need new rollers (cleaning them will only make them work temporarily and the problem will come more frequently until you change them).
