Erm...i also encountered this type of problem b4...what i do is i put the paper inside so that it could be rolled when the printer turn...then when the printer start rolling the paper, i hold the paper half so that it can't move out until the roller stop...then the led start blinking and ask for removing the jammed paper...so i pull out the paper from the printer manual and press color button...then the printer will be back to normal...method that i done was make the paper really jammed even though it was not jammed

Here the 3 step simple solution
(1) Turn off your printer
(2) Put one plain nice A4 paper at entrance of the
(3) Turn ON your printer
*The printer will start moving your cartridge and
also all the roller. The plain paper you put in then will be rolled out.
If anything stuck at the roller, the plain paper will cleanit out for you.
After that your printer will be OK and the LED panel will show "1"

Try this one...dissect the printer be sure you know how to put it back. their is a spring near the waste pads. I think it is a part of the gear assembly. These spring with gear sometimes loose. you will have to put it back, (note: if the spring is still aligned) if not....change the spring with the gear. Hope this one will help someone......AGB_ZHEED

MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error.
The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix.
When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

SOURCE: 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.
