When it jams I take it that there is two sheets stuck together? If so then the paper tray separation pad will need replacing. To check if the machine it working ok try using the side feed.

Thanks Jason

Lexmark T644 Drawer 2 Missing error message but drawer 2 is in place. Drawer 2 always has problems pulling form form drawer when printing from drawer 2.


If job prints from the wrong tray or on the wrong paper or specialty media, this is an indication that the operator panel menu settings do not match the media loaded in the tray.

Make sure the Paper Size and Paper Type specified in the printer driver match the paper size and type in the tray.

For further assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support

Paper jam


  • Discover the location of the jam. Carefully open the cover of the copy machine and the paper tray to see exactly where the paper is jammed.
  • 2Turn off the copy machine before pulling out the paper.
  • 3Pull the page out, the opposite way it is fed into the copier. Pull the jammed sheet out gently. If you tug too hard, the paper may rip.
  • 4Check for any paper fragments and clean up any torn pieces.
  • 5Check the roller where the jam occurred to be sure none of the copier parts are loose or broken. The roller should be smooth all the way across with no possible snags.
  • 6Replace the cover and paper tray and turn the machine back on.
  • 7Press the button to cancel the paper jam message. This button will vary among copy machines. The display will tell you which button to push

    see the diagram for copiers and let`s the way of paper for troubleshooting .

    How to clear paper jam?


    How to clear the jam depends on where the jam is.

    If the Jam is in Tray 1:
    1. If you can see the jammed sheet, remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    2. If you cannot see the jammed sheet, open the tray 1 door and pull out tray 2.
    3. Push down on two tabs to release the tray 1 panel.
    4. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    5. Push up on two tabs to replace the tray 1 panel.
    6. Replace tray 2.

    If the Jam is in Tray 2:
    1. Pull out tray 2 and place it on a flat surface.
    2. Remove the jammed sheet by pulling it straight out.
    3. Replace tray 2.
    4. Press OK to continue printing.

    If the Jam is in the Fuser area:
    1. Open the rear door.
    2. Remove any jammed sheets.
    3. Close the rear door.

    If the Jam is in the Output Bin:
    1. Look for jammed paper in the output bin area.
    2. Remove any visible media
    3. Open and then close the rear door to clear the message.

    It is possible that the paper may tear when clearing the jam. Be sure to clear any paper fragments that tear off.

    I cant fix the paper jam problem. every time i take the paper jam out it jams again


    I have had paper jams in five different places on this machine. It has jammed at the pickup point from the tray, in which case you have to remove the paper tray and pull the jammed paper out. It has jammed at the manual paper feed tray, in which case you just have to pull the jammed paper out of the feed rollers. It has jammed at the toner/drum, in which case you have to open the front cover and pull the toner cartridge out to remove the jam. It has jammed in the back of the machine where the paper feeds through to the output tray, in which case you have to open the small back panel and remove the paper. And it has jammed in the output rollers, in which case you have to reach inside the output tray and remove the paper. Then once the jam is cleared there are times when the machine has to be unplugged for up to 8 hours to reset before it will function properly.

    Paper feed problem from both tray 1 & 2


    There is a long set of sensor flags on the bottom of the paper input unit that can get stuck and not move freely. This will cause jams from both trays. Try unplugging the printer, removing the toner cartridges and tray 2. Turn the printer on its back or side. You will see a long, black plastic bar with flags on it that runs the length of the paper input unit. make sure it moves freely.

    Repeated paper jam in fuser


    Fuser's orange roller is not meant to be wrinkled, if this is then I would recommend you replace it (just slides out) pic below
    b4eead5.jpg If printing on card, you need to feed via manual bypass and exit from the back, not on the top, aka the "face up tray." Tray pulls out from rear. Rear tray will only stack a few card sheets at once.

    Setting on printer's control panel must be set to card/heavy paper type on manual bypass tray

    Their may still be some card in fuser causing jams.

    Please rate as FIxya or post back,
    Cheers
