The printer has a Reset mode- somewhere. But different makers/models have different settings. Try the manual and if not mentioned there try the Canon website. Failing that try this- with the printer switched off press a combination of 2 buttons[any 2] with them pressed switch the printer on did it reset?- then try another combination. take a look also at also here

Ive just turned on my Canon pixma mp250 printer and have an Error, the screen is flashing E 0 3??? have tried resetting but that hasn't had any affect.

An E3 error code in a Canon MP210 printer is frustrating. This code reflects a paper jam that is not always apparent immediately and can be indicative of other problems.

Remove the jammed paper by pulling it from the front or top of the printer. If it does not come out, restart the printer to eject the paper. If the paper fails to come out or rips, remove the cover and retry. Once you have removed all visible paper, check paper sensor paths for debris or damage, blowing it out as needed.

Reload the paper as recommended and print a test page using the printer's software. If the error continues, the sensor that generates the error may be damaged. If so, take your printer to an authorized service center.

Ive got a pixma mx700 printer and im getting the 5c00 error how do i get rid of this

Error code 5C00 refers to possible paper jam or product needs reset or service.

It is possible that a previous paper jam has left a piece of paper inside the machine. If you cannot see any paper jammed at either input area, open the rear cover and look in there. Otherwise, you can try to reset the product:

Reset the printer:

1. Turn the printer off with the Power button

2. Disconnect the data cable from the printer

3. Unplug the printer's power cord for approximately 10 minutes, and then plug it back in. Attach data cable.

4. Turn the printer back on

If all of these suggestions fail, your MX700 may require repair service.

Normally turning it off and back on resets the error code. However, lots of times they may be a small piece of a paper stuck causing the error code. Turn the printer off for about 10 minutes, see if that clears it and check one more time for some paper jam.

Error paper jam

Turn the printer off and on to see if it can automatically clear some or all of the jam. Many printers provide an error-code listing on the front panel display for the area where the jam occurred. If your printer shows an error code, be sure and check the printer manual to see if that identifies the area of the printer where the jam occurred. 
Turn off the printer. 
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper. 
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge. 
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it in a bag or away from light to avoid damaging it. 
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly (see A). The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam. 
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper (see B). Don't force anything, though. 
Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on. 
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
