Canon MP210 roller not ressponsive

My canon mp210 gave me the error code for a paper jam. (E3) After digging around, i found that it was a piece of plastic that was jamming the roller, not paper. (the battery compartment cover to a wireless mouse to be exact) After removing the obstruction I've been unable to get the printer to feed paper. is my printer a glorified paperweight, or is there anything i can do to get the roller to start working again?

I saw a similar situation with an adapter for a Sony produo memory card wedged in the rollers.When removed, the printer worked fine.Have a good torch to hand and a long narrow strip of card to poke around with without doing any harm. If you can manage it, turn the printer upside down and shake gently, this may help to dislodge any obstruction.

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.

E3 is paper jam error... have you check your printer paper path to see if there is any small pieces of paper still stuck inside?

I have a problem with an error of "Jammed paper" and I cant see any paper jammed, What should I do?


Sometimes a "jammed paper" error message is caused by a very small piece of paper lodged inside around a roller, and can't be seen with removing a cover or something, It isn't always a full sheet of paper in an obvious place that causes the problem. poke around inside and look for a tiny culprit, goodluck!

Canon mp210 will not load paper this is a brand new printer so why error 3 continually?


E3 is paper jam.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.

For Canon mp210. Error light blinks. Either E22 or E2


Hi there
This is a Carriage error take a good look at the carriage that the inks are in and see if they are sitting ok and also do the next incise there some thing there stopping it from moving.


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.

Printer jam E2 with no paper


Are you sure there is not even a tiny piece of paper caught between the rollers? Most machines sense the resistants and give this message.Try rolling the rollers by hand,air spray the insides , lubricate the gears, you got nothing to loose.Good Luck.

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.
