Printer error MP 970

Paper got stuck. I got it out except for a small piece - I last saw the small piece under one of the while plastic rectangular things inside the printer.
That piece disappeared bu the printer still indicates printer error.

I do not know how to get further inside the printer and do not have a manual.

Try and print another piece of paper and it should come out

or take the ink cartrages out and take the bottem platform off
there should be another box looking thing take it and slide it over
then you should be able to see the paper

Mp 280 error p2?


This helped me last time i worked on this kind of problem....The Canon MP280 can display this error for a few reasons. It could be that one or both of the cartridges are not inserted into the printer correctly. One or both of the cartridges may have failed electrically, and need to be replaced.
There may be a paper jam, check the printer thoroughly for any small pieces still stuck inside.
The encoder film strip may have some dirty marks on it, and therefore needs cleaning. The encoder film strip in the clear strip of plastic that the printer carriage runs on. Be extremely careful when touching this, as it is very delicate.

I have a Canon MP 210 with an E3 error message (paper jam) though there is NO paper jam. The paper feeder is spinning but doesn't grab the paper. Please help! Thank you, Robin


I think there is a paper jam or something stuck in the sensor that is making it think there is a paper jam. It may be a very small piece of paper which you have missed. Look again.

The following is my exact problem...can it be repaired? Hard to tell if piece is broken. "My faxes are not printing. The error message says there is a paper mismatch and tells me to remove the transparency...


Somewhere, your printer has a sensor (probably a light and a mirror and a detector), to try to distinguish between transparency media and opaque media (such as a sheet of paper).

So, that sensor either has a piece of transparency media stuck inside it, or it is otherwise misdiagnosing what media is between the light-emitter and the light-detector, and thus is claiming that there is transparency media loaded into the paper-tray.

It sounds like you need to take the printer to a qualified technician.

Reads "machine error af"


There is something wrong with the document feeder. Check if there are no pieces of paper stuck somewhere, and that any sensors are not stuck (sensors are usually small plastic pieces, that are lifted up when a sheet of paper moves below it).

Under one year old pixma mp150 all in one/ changed ink cartridges/error code E2 / saying no paper ????


I have had a MP 150 Cannon Printer with a E3 paper jam code..when NO visable paper jam is present ! Your No paper problem may be as a result of similar issue due to a small piece of paper stuck in the roller assembly out of sight. TRY this, Turn printer off wait (10 seconds) or more then turn printer back ON and listen for roller assembly to turn the ROLLERS and then FORCE FEED
a sheet of paper into rollers until it PULLS paper through and SEE if any scrap of paper comes out with the sheet !! If this works you should see that it clears the code. and resets your printer.
Let me know if this works. Phil at palcando@yahoo.com

GOOD LUCK !

MP970 printer error - paper jam


Hello there this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have an MP210 Canon printer.  It is saying E 3.  The alarm light is on.  When I try to print, it says there's a paper jam; there isn't.  Help?


i had this problem, i was convinced that there was no paper stuck in it, and in my frustration i ended up tilting it backwards and banging it on the table. i found a pen was lodged in the paper feeder. I was so relieved, until the error code was still flashing. then i stuck my hand down the paper feeder (take the paper out first) and found the smallest piece of paper stuck in it. try this.

i am so relieved.

Paper mismatch


Sounds like your spot sensor is broken. It will give you this error if not working properly. It is attached to the right side of the cartridge carriage and emits a small blue light when paper is fed in to the machine. It looks at the paper and tells the machine the paper is there or in this case not there.

Printer not responding after a jam


http://files.oce.com/nl/download/printers/PP20D%20Operation%20Guide%20(Engelstalig).pdf Here is the link to the pdf manual for the printer. They show some light sequences and mention something about the old toner cartridge may need to be emptied/replaced. I'll let you know if I think of anything else. Tim
