4TH LIGHT FROM THE TOP KEEPS COMING ON LEXMARK E232


What this light sequence means that the printer has a paper jam.

When a paper jam occurs, the printer stops and the operator panel's Paper Jam light and Continue button lights come on. Press and release Continue twice quickly to display the specific secondary error paper jam light sequence.


How to clear Paper Jam

Press Continue button twice quickly to see the secondary error code.


To get the secondary error codes

When the Error light (!) and Continue button lights are both on, a secondary error has occurred.

When the Paper Jam light (4th light) and Continue button lights are both on, a paper jam secondary error has occurred.

Press and release Continue button twice quickly to display the secondary error code light sequence.


Press Continue button to resume printing once all the jammed pages are cleared from the paper path.

We recommend that you clear the entire paper path when a paper jam occurs.


To clear a paper jam:


1 If you are feeding paper from a tray, remove the tray, and then remove any jams.

2 Open the front cover and remove the print cartridge assembly.

NOTE: Do not leave the print cartridge assembly exposed to direct light for an Extended period of time. Extended light exposure can cause print quality problems.

3 Remove any jams in the area behind the print cartridge assembly.

4 Lift the flap at the front of the printer and remove any jams beneath the flap.

5 Open the rear exit and remove any jams.

6 After you have cleared the jams, reinstall the print cartridge assembly, make sure all printer covers and trays are closed, and then press Continue button to resume printing.

NOTE: The printer reprints the pages that caused the paper jam.

We have a Ricoh Aficio CL3500N and every time we print the paper jams and we get the "Remove Misfeed A: Internal Path". I remove the jam and when it tries to print again we get the same thing,...


There may be an obstruction inside the printer. Try this....remove the paper from the paper tray and put paper in the handfeed tray (front of the machine) If it feeds from that tray it means that the feed rollers in the bottom cassette are worn.

I have a Sharp Al-2040cs when I turn it on the misfeed indicator is blinking. I checked it there no misfeed paper or piece of paper inside. How can I fix this problem?


The MISFEED Indicator blinks when a MISFEED has occurred. Remove the misfed paper referring to the the description of MISFEED REMOVAL beginning on page 65 of the pdf Manual at:

http://files.sharpusa.com/Downloads/ForHome/HomeOffice/PrintersFaxMachines/Manuals/cop_man_AL2030_AL2040CS.pdf

When the MISFEED Indicator is blinking you should look closer at the paper feed area (see page 66 of the PDF). You may need to remove the paper tray to find any remnants of paper. If after closing the side cover the light does not stop blinking you will need to follow through as per the illustrated instructions.

Remember after removing jammed paper, you need to press the clear key to clear the MISFEED error.

If after doing all this the error signal has not cleared, power down the printer; unplug from the power supply; let rest 5 - 10 minutes; plug back i to power supply; turn printer on and see if this resolves issue.

Trust this is helpful. Please vote. :)

Red blinking light


Hi, this is not a cartridge related problem. As you have written, it is related to the paper misfeed. When removing any future paper misfeeds, always take extra caution as not to destroy the paper sensor. If it jammed near the paper tray area, first open the right cover to see the paper, the try to pull it slowly till it comes out. Never try to force it out as you may tear a small piece which will show you that a misfeed is still on. If it does tear, carefully remove it until its out. If it jams on the fusing unit, release the side levers on the copier or turn the green rotating lever on the front which appears when front cover is open until it ejects it out.

If you are sure there is no jammed paper, make sure the spring on right side of fusing unit, where there is a sensor is retracted to its position. Good luck pal.

Ricoh Aficio CL3500N printer phantom misfeed


It seems that the sensor is having dust or toner settled upon it. Kindly remove the toner and clean the residual toner. Take a hard stock paper and give one copy command and push it while it tries to pull the paper. Paper misfeed is not the same as paper jam. Paper misfeed refers to the blank paper tray and paper jam refers to paper which has been taken from the tray and now inside the unit.

Paper light flashing on my brothers HL-2040 printer. I fanned the paper still keeps flashing


Hello ,

Please follow the below steps to try and clear this message.

  1. Turn the power off on the unit.
  2. Open the front and back cover of the unit.
  3. Remove the drum and toner cartridge from the unit.
  4. Check thoroughly inside for any paper jams or any other foreign objects and remove them.
  5. Reinsert the drum and toner and close the front and back cover.
  6. Turn the unit back on.
If the light keeps flashing you will want to check to see if you need to feed paper through the manual feed.

The manual feed is the opening on the front of the printer, just place a page there.

This should clear the error message on the display screen and allow you to resume normal use of the printer.

Thanks,

Pat
