Paper feed problem
Those printers are really hard t.o take apart. As you can see, there are very few screws holding it together. All the panels snap on and aren’t meant to come back off for repair. What I do is gently pry around the panel with a small flat blade screwdriver until it pops up. There aren’t any manuals, so that’s pretty much the only way to do it. I’m pretty good at putting parts like that back in without disassembly. I’ve innovated different repair methods where I do the equivalent of laproscopic surgery with minimum disassembly. Maybe use a needle nosed pliers and a small screwdriver to help guide it in? I don’t know exactly where it came out of or how much access room you have.
Lexmark paper feed problems
On my X204n Lexmark laser printer, it was doing the same thing you described – basically sounded like it was trying to pick up the paper from the tray and then failing after several seconds. When you’d open the paper tray, the paper looked like it had been partially taken up with some black scuff marks on the paper that lined up with the rollers that take up the paper. I inspected the rollers and although they looked a bit smooth and worn, didn’t seem like they should be a problem. However, this particular model has just a rubber tire almost like a car tire – the rubber can come off the hard plastic wheel on the inner portion. So I popped off the two rubber “tires”, turned them inside out and put them back on. When turned inside out, the rubber looked nice and … rubbery and had a lot more grippy feeling to them. The very first printing attempt after that and the paper sucked up perfectly with no problems. I think the problem is solved! So if you have similar “tires” that take up the paper, try flipping them and see if it works for you too.

There is no way of adjusting the distance of lift. Could be that the pickup roller is worn enough that it will pick up a sheet that is higher, but not one that is lower down. You can look at the end of the roller that first makes contact and see if it is worn smooth.
