    i have the same problem, for a fair few weeks!! i get the E 3 error and there is no paper jam, the paper however is trying to feed in on the right side (when you face the printer) and the printer sounds as if it is printing buth the paper doesn't feed through.

    I've had the same problem for 2-3 months now. I logged on to the Cannon website hoping for a solution but the page with the "answer" never opened. I'm not sure if my computer froze or they just don't have an answer because it happened 3 times. I've checked the notification box below to be contacted when someone has a suggestion. Good luck to us both. Take care

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. In most cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Hope this helps.
