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. The reason for this is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time.
Worth a try, as I have fixed a number of printers this way, saving costly repairs.
Hope this helps. Bud

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.

Dispalays Reads paper jam and wont disappear


Unplug the power cord then put it back up. This restarts the printer again in case the on/off button does not work to turn the printer off. Then check if there's a paper jam. To do this open the scanner lid and also the glass lid, just the way you access the inks when replacing them. Check to see if there's any paper stuck underneath the inks by the printer rollers along the paper path.

Printer Error E3


E3 error -
If paper has jammed in the machine, clear the jam, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

The above is direct from the user manual.
If there is no paper jam - look for any small pieces of paper that could be located near the roller sensor.

CANON PIXMA MP160 E3 error


I work in a shop repairing these printers and have had a large number with the same fault - displaying E-3 with no jam in the paper path. This is caused by a broken part in the paper feed mechanism that pevents the printer from taking the paper. The part located right at the bottom of the printer looks like two white gears connected together with a central spring. At present I am trying to find a supplier of the spare parts - will check back.
