Ok, the paper jam could be due to one of the following:

  • Check for paper in the paper tray
  • Check the size of the paper in the paper tray to see if it is the same as what the printer is set for.
  • Defective D-roller
  • Debris in the paper path
  • Gears not turning or broken gear
  • Defective paper tray
  • Broken input sensor flag
  • Defective input sensor board
  • Defective system cable
If there is no bit of paper or debris stuck in the rollers, it would indicate something more serious, and in need of servicing. If your machine is under warranty, I suggest you take it back to the shop and get it replaced.
If your warranty has run out, then you'll either have to get it serviced or buy a new printer (whichever works out cheaper for you)

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

E3 says there is a paper jam somewhere, could be a small scrap, or even a bent or broken sensor lever. Just have to inspect inside carefully.

I have a acanon pixma mp210.. amber alarm light


Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in:
- Carriage unit
- Timing **** strip film
- Logic board assembly
- Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Alarm light is on. No paper jam. Help!


I have the exact printer and they are fussy ! If you are certain that there is not even the slightest bit of paper ripped off inside then try re-setting it , power off for about a minute , then re-start , if you still can't see it try hot swapping the usb connection to another port ?!! good luck

False paper jam


possible solution - I had a similar printer that had small stones that fell into the paper slot at the back and jammed the mechanism. a shelf behind the printer had these little rocks and a child dropped them into the printer. I had to take it all apart, but it worked after that
