    no, it's only able to close about halfway up, and than it stops and you can't force to close any further, there is two pieces of plastic with two rubber washer type things that hold it in place on a metal spool I think thats whats stopping it, but I don't know how to fix that problem

  • alegere Jan 11, 2008

    Its snapped in right, we just had a paper jam, opened the back door, and now we can't close the back door, like I said, I think it has something to do with the black plastic things on the metal spool the is supposed to sync up with the plastic dividers( sorry for the lack of better terminology) There are two gray rubber washers that hold on this plastic black thing to the metal spool that runs across that back inside...I think that is what is hindering the door from closing, and we think that it may need to be adjusted or something, who knows, cause we don't, that all the info I have. Its kind of perplexing.

    Does it close all the way but doesn't latch so it falls back open or is it stuck open?

Might not be snapped in properly? Try pushing it in on it's hinge.

    May just need to be pushed harder, sometimes things get out of place and just need some elbow grease to push them back where they belong. Otherwise, without seeing your printer and not having seen this model first hand before I can't guess as to why your door won't close. Good Luck!

My lexmark has been jam by so i was asking how can i open the backdoor for my lexmark X5630


Leading cause of paper jams is debris/foreign objects that accidentally fell into the paper feed area. Please follow steps below 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 turn the printer over. Any debris should just freely roll out from the feeder.

4. If feeder is clear, place the printer back on the table, open the printer cover and remove the cartridges.

5. Check the cartridge area for any obstructions/debris in the cartridge carrier's path or the paper path.

6. If cartridge area is clear, close the cover.

7. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

8. When the printer turns on, reinsert the cartridges and load some paper. Try to print again.


If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have several sheets of paper jammed in my printer and I can,t pull it out


Welcome to FixYa!

Don't try to pull out the jammed paper at the front panel of the printer. You might risk damaging your printer. Remove the jammed paper from the "Back Door" of the printer. The type of backdoor depends on what kind of HP printer you have. Below are 2 common backdoor of HP printers.

1. Press the Power button to turn on the printer.
2. While the printer is still on, disconnect the power cord from the rear of the printer.
3. Turn the printer so that the rear of it faces you.
4. Press in the tab on the left side of the rear door to release it. Then pull the door away from the printer to remove it.
5. Gently pull any jammed paper out of the rollers with your two hands.
6. Return back the back door. Gently push the door forward until it snaps into place.
7. Plug the power cord into the printer.
8. Turn the printer on again using the power button.

Note: Make sure to remove the jammed paper cautiously, any small pieces of paper left inside the printer might cause additional paper jam.

Some HP printers uses a latch to open the backdoor. Refer to the image below:

My printer always tells me paper jam


Hi there,

the issue can be found when the paper feed rolls in the printer or the internal encoder strip are dirty.

Please try the following:

- open the backdoor of the printer
- also open the front door
- unplug the power chord without shutting down the printer
- now clean the paper feed rolls inside the printer with a soft rubber
- turn the rolls some times (10 tries or so) from down to up
- close the backdoor
- move the cartridge cart some times from one side to the other
- now you see a transparent strip over the metal bar
- this strip you can clean with cleaning alcohol
(be carefully! don't loose the strip or take too much alcohol)
- now let the printer dry over night (let it be open)
- next morning, close the front door
- press # and 6 at the same time and hold them
- keep them pressed and plug in the power chord
- keep them pressed until you see "semi nvm reset"

done

Hope it helps,
Henning
