SOURCE: Canon MX310 paper jam
"Gclanton" had it right.
I had the same problem today. I ended up taking a piece of paper and from the back side started lightly forcing the paper in the back slot. I had the top cover open where you replace the ink cartridges. Towards the back you can see the paper start coming into the printer next to some rollers. On mine there was a small black switch about an inch from the right in the middle of the plastic piece above the rollers. Once I started pushing this paper in I could see this switch was stuck in the down position. After several minutes of pushing the paper in and out the switch moved up and out of the paper path. I then pulled out the paper and hit the ok button and it came on line. This may work better with a piece of card stock.
That switch is the issue. I ended up finding an object lodged against the switch. Needed a flashlight, plastic giftcard and a tweezers to get it out. Works great now.

Hi! have canon pixma mp210
i had the same problem E 3
and service button on
and B and C blinking(okay they are always blinking at my printer because i recharge it with syringe).
The cause of the problem was bad inserted paper -> paper jam
First i checked paper tray -> found a syringe fragment
opened the printer cover-> found a small peace of paper
but the printer was still blinking with E3 !
i began to disassemble the printer(be careful with a small secure part on the front side under control keys..i have broken this s it:) )
than i saw no other pieces of paper there.
i decrease the clips where the paper goes through(white plastic stuff) and put a sheet of paper there and started the printer again!
ps maybe it is better not to disassemble the printer and put in some way the paper between the rotating pulleys(because the printer had this paper jam and wants to have paper there to give it out)

Hi Girlemom. Just had the same problem here. Lift up the lid and slide the ink cartridges to the left. If they are stuck in the middle, this will prevent the printer from starting properly. Then, unplug it, plug back in, and turn on. It should restart normally.

give this a try
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
