    I have the same problem. Have run paper through from both ends to be certain the pathway is clear, but still get the paper jam message. Any remedy?

I have the same problem. I think my printer is being sabotaged because I keep ignoring the request to register the printer. I'm going out to buy another printer, but it damn sure will not be a Lexmark.

I have a Lexmark Z715 Printer. It has a paper jam I cannot clear - picked up about 15 sheets of paper at one time and I cannot get it unjammed. Is there a trick to solving this problem?


Some sheets are jammed more tightly than others. Check to locate and remove the less jammed sheets to make it easier to remove the rest. With some printers, it helps to "riffle" the supply first to prevent sticking. You also may have loaded the printer with more sheets than it can handle at one time.

My printer keeps showing the message "Clear paper jam, then press (check mark), there is no jammed paper in the printer.


If I load my paper at the 'proper' height, it will not feed. If I push the paper down too far, I get a 'paper jam' message. What works for me (even though it's a royal pain) is to feed 1 sheet of paper at a time. Put 1 sheet in so it's level with the top of the feed tray, then gently push it down 3/4 of an inch. That works for me. Good luck.

Lexmark P3150 was working fine.But paper got jammed. I pulled the paper out and color cartrdge went to left side like a bullet and blue light in On Off switch started flickering. When I start printer...


Maybe you somehow detached the encoder strip when removing the paper.
First, before you put your hands inside the printer, unplug the power chord from your printer. This is important.
Then open up the lid and locate the horizontal metal bar.  Right above this there should be a semi-transparent plastic strip attached in the right and left side of your printer. If you see this, try moving it with your finger. If its properly attached, it should bounce back to it's original position. If it's loose, try to attach it to the right/left side again. If you can't find it, it probably fell off and is jammed inside the printer somewhere. 

If the encoder strip looks OK, your carrier might have jammed in the left side of your printer. Keep the power chord unplugged. 
See if you can unjam the carrier by pulling it along the metal rod. If should be fairly easy to move back and forth, so you'll know if it's stuck. If you can't loosen it, your printer is probably damaged beyond repair. Check if you have warranty on it.

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.

I'm trying to replace black color cartridge, but get an error message: carrier jam How do I unjam it? Already did the unplug- check for paper jam and replug...no luck!


Remove all paper...(inspect closely for paper jammed way inside!)

also remove both ink cartriges, reinsert them one at a time carefully and properly....also double check the number code on the ink

the jam error could be either paper or cartriges confusing the printer. let me know if it works....k

usually it means that a sensor in your fuser is bad. If you have a P.M. Kit replaced the fuser and clean the printer.

but before you do, make sure that you have cleared all jams, including in the fuser.

Its probably time for a Preventive Maintanence
