What you will see

* ‘x’ denotes the tray number, i.e., 241.06 for Tray 1, 242.06 for Tray 2, etc.
Troubleshooting and avoiding paper jams
Check for third-party (non-genuine*) toner cartridges.
Check for toner leaking into the printer and toner overfilling the waste toner area (bottle) of the imaging unit.
Are cartridges genuine?
Is the tray drawer clean?

Loose toner may be getting into the paper-feed assembly.
Lexmark recommends replacing any third-party toner cartridge or imaging unit with genuine Lexmark products. Lexmark is not liable for printer damage caused by remanufactured or third party (non-genuine) supplies.
Check for paper curled down or up.
Is the paper wavy and causing a downward or upward curl?
Improper paper storage...
leads to wavy paper, which...
up in the tray.
Paper resting in the tray at an angle can stab into separator roll during the picking process.
Try a new ream of paper, or flip the existing stack over on the opposite side, and then retest.
|See next Step 3.|
Check the following relating to paper, tray loading, and general operation:
* Check the printer’s User’s Guide under the section Paper and specialty media guide.
Is paper/printer within their respective specifications, and is tray being loaded properly?
Fan paper, reload it and retest. If issue persists, see next Step 4.
Note: This can help remove dog ears or edge welds. This also helps prevent sheets from sticking together.
Correct the situation.
Afterwards, if issue persists, see next Step 4.
Remove the paper tray, lower the pick arm assembly and check the condition of the pick tires for excessive wear or contamination.
Are pick rollers damaged or contaminated?
Yes, please call Lexmark Technical Support for further troubleshooting and service suggestions.
|Go to Step 5.|

If Yes or No, please call Lexmark Technical Support for further troubleshooting and service suggestions.
Make sure the sheets lie flat in the tray
