|Location||Click Image to Enlarge|
|Standard Output Bin Jam|
|Fuser Area Jam|
|1||Be sure any previous jams have been completely removed; xref_HO3872_xref and refer to 202.xx Paper Jam Removal.|
|2||Make sure that the affected paper tray (could be any input source) is loaded properly; please refer to xref_HO3871_xref.|
|3||Verify that the paper size, type, and weight are within specification for the input source. Light-weight paper can jam more easily in the fuser. Set to light paper mode if running light media with heavy coverage.|
|4||If the paper in the printer shows signs of excessive wrinkle, crease, or dampness, or if the sheets are bent or wavy, or have ream glue or curl, there is probably too much moisture in the paper. Replace the paper in the printer with new paper from an unopened ream.|
|5||If issue persists after performing the steps mentioned above, an issue may exist within the machine's hardware. Please contact Lexmark Technical Support for other troubleshooting suggestions.|
Please contact Lexmark Technical Support if you need additional assistance.
