If you have cleaned the paper feed rollers, and your sure the fuser is turning and your cartridge is ok then, the drive motor on these have a white plastic gear that cracks and allows it to slip on the shaft of the motor. I might still have some of the gears here. I fixed some by apoxying the gear on the shaft and some by flipping the gear on the shaft. Wouldnt spend a lot of time with it. a new laser 4 times as fast is advertised here regularly for less than $80.00

Belt drive sears opener, new, will only open halfway, why?


Depending on model there are 2 two controls for up/ down travel of the opener. This is known as the limit switch. When the opener runs a gear moves 1 switch at time and when the switch closes the motor shuts off.There are arrows next to each control which will tell you which way to turn knob to increase the travel.if already maxed out will will need to remove cover and look at the switches. You can remove the tiny gear clip, take off the gear and manually move it in to the position you need. good luck

I have a samsung CLX 3175 FW printer. Paper jams halfway through print cycle. Nothing in mech to stop - appears to be limit switch fault? If you turn the printer off and on it clears paper


The limit switches are just flags that block or unblock photo sensors. Try blowing the printer out with some canned air, paper dust on these sensors is a common cause of these problems.

I have Lexmark x85printer. Bought new Ink Cartages. Printer Will not Feed Paper All I get is paper jam Clear paper


Either the ink cartridges are incorrectly inserted, and block the paper path jamming the paper, or the paper drive roller got slightly out of kilter when replacing the ink. Sometimes, powering down the printer, manually moving (gently) the printer head halfway from home position, closing the printer and powering it on will clear a roller problem (never tried on a Lexmark, though. It works on Epsons and HPs). If the head doesn't move, though, don't force it. Try instead taking out the ink cartridges and putting them in again, without forcing, and gently wiggling them until they click in place.

If you get the message without any paper in the printer, check the insides for any scrap of paper which could have lodged in the sensors.

Also, verify there is no paper elsewhere in the paper run (paper out tray, etc.). Sometimes the "paper jam" message is a sort of "catch-all" error.

Extra paper feeds and jams after each print. One copy prints and then the printer drags the next sheet down halfway and jams.


The feeder assembly is not timed right, it happens when you pull out a jam. It may have a broken spindle or gear, I would take it to a shop to figure out.

Paper feeds halfway through and then 'Jams'


you have something stuck down in your paper path, if you feed a hard piece of plastic down the paper path manually and gently you will feel something is there, a very common problem

Paper a misfeed


not sure if you are talking about two papers jammed in different locations or at different times?

first thing would be to clean the tires that pick up the paper, if too smooth then replace. sounds like a timing issue.paper getting stuck halfway in the fuser c(if no other paper jammed) can be Seperation is off causing the paper to rise onto the drum creating a time lapse, paper tansport belt (in the machine after the drum) is not turning ok, or as simple as wrong size paper Letter in machine but says Legal 8 1/2 x 14
