Lexmark Printer not pulling or picking paper out from the tray

Issue: Printer is not picking paper from tray 1.

Caused: The pick rollers are not sticking to the paper causing it to slide. When the printer's sensor detects that the paper its expecting to arrive did not arrive, then that's the time it gives paper jam error.

Not picking paper from the tray

Remove the paper pick rollers. Just remove the rubbers and wash it with alcohol or soap and water. Wash it properly and dry.  DO this even if the pick tires look clean.

The cause of this is the materials used by Lexmark on this pick rollers. I talked to Lexmark tech regarding this and he said they're already rolling out pick roller replacement for those affected printers who is still getting the same issue even after performing the above steps.

How to Fix Lexmark printer Paper jam 31.46, 31.66, or 201.22

Applicable to the following Lexmark printer models

Single function: MS310, MS410, MS510, MS610, M1145, & M3150
Multi-function: MX310, MX410, MX51x, MX61x, XM1145, & XM3150

Possible cause

A paper jam does NOT cause the 201.22 error code. Most likely it is caused by not inserting the cartridge fully before closing the cartridge door. Closing the door in this condition will jam the linkage that opens the toner port to the imaging unit, thus the Imaging Unit starves and will not print, or the auger motor will over torque because the port is not open.

Error codes 31.46 and 31.66 are precursors to the 201.22 error code. The steps below should be followed for any of these errors.


1. Open the printer's front door and inspect the cartridge button. It should not be stuck. Try using a different cartridge.

2. Check the cartridge plunger if damage or broken.

Easiest Trick to Make Your Computer Performance Faster

There are few things you can do to tune up your computer to make sure it runs better before you sort out spending money to fix it. If you're interested to learn what are these simple things I'm talking about, then keep reading...

Slow computer

You probably is interested with learning to make your computer fast, so let's get started. First of all, the basic thing you can do is upgrade your computer's memory or set it to its maximum capability. Most people will just leave their memory configuration to the default so obviously they're not getting the best or optimum performance or getting the full value to their worth.

So how would I set my computer's memory to its maximum capability?

First of all, start your computer to the bios settings window. Once you get there, if you're an Intel user and your memory supports XMP, then just enable the XMP profile 1 under settings. That's how easy it is.

Second thing is if you're using a mechanical hard drive. What this mechanical hard drive do is store information all over the disc and after time it starts to slow down its performance because it’s going to go all over the place searching for the information you're trying to access. So, if you have a Mechanical hard drive, perform a computer Defragmentation at least once a week.  What it will do is it will defrag the information making it more compact and will put more space on your hard drive and allow you to access information much faster.

Third, Internet speeds. If you notice your internet starts to run sluggish, one thing you can do to improve that is by deleting/clearing your browsing data. If you want the browser to save your information like credit card, or passwords then just uncheck the clear cookies box.

Fourth, if your mechanical hard drive has used up more than 50% of its capacity, then it would start to run slower. It's probably time to replace your hard drive or get an external drive so you can transfer its files and make its performance better.

Lastly, taking your computer and cleaning it out. Remove all those clog dusts sticking on your fan and all over the place because believe it or not, these would make your system run hotter which would then make your system run slower.

There are several tools out there promising to make your computer run faster etc... I don't really believe those, it would just install add-ins etc... or even malware on your computer. By just following these very simple steps, you will save a lot of money and time and will enjoy your computer more.
