I solved paper jam message E3 on Canon PIXMA MP150 by selecting a different paper type.
Want to share this information: Always when I tried to print a photo I got E3 displayed. But I could print any other things well. After many attempts to solve this problem I found out that my photo print works fine when I select "Professional Fotopapier" (I live in Austria so I installed a german driver - but I think this selection is for PR-101) although I use "Fotoglanzpapier Plus" (PP-101). I also got the E3 when selected "Fotoglanzpapier Plus" and tried to print an empty word document on standard paper.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem. I knew I didn't have a paper jam, but I used my garage air compressor to blow out the inside and also the paper tray area. I didn't see any bits of paper or debris come loose, but it worked.

Take the paper out and gently curve all pages. Then put them back in with the convexity facing you. I had the same problem and this fixed it after long cursing, trial and error. All the printers in this line seem to suffer from this problem as far as I know. Hope this helps! ben

I was looking for a solution for my HP and found the answer at an obvious place...HP's website...

I was able to fix it by taking off the rear door panel and for some reason putting the panel back on fixed it...

So if you have a rear panel on your printer then try taking it off and putting it back on...if this doesn't help go to the website of your printer and troubleshoot that way.

I have a mp 160. I did all the other solutions and nothing worked. Then I MOVED the printer forward a few inches, and voila, the printer began printing. Who knows?

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

Please help with cannon PIXMA MP150 printer problem, when trying to print, It reads that paper is jammed but I've checked several times and no paper is jammed. Printer will not print due to this...


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side
, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up.
To solve this first of all Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder
, If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon Printers service provider.

I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

Paper jam (e3) BUT no paper jam


make sure you open all check points, if yours has a rear feed through, look in there also. it only takes a tiny piece of paper to cause it to say that. use a flash light, have had to use one to find several that way.

My canon pixma mp150 have an E3. How can I fix


The E3 error indicates paper jam. If there is no paper jammed then look that if something is stuck inside the rollers. This may solve your problem.
