    Tried your tips with the envelope with no success, I'm afraid. Problem began after changing ink cartridges. I can see nothing that could be jamming. This is a Canon MP210--where is the manual feed button?

    I've tried ALL of the above, over and over...

    There is NOTHING obstructing visible obstructing it; I've successfully feed paper through but it then off it goes...



    It was working fine then I ran a print job that ran out of paper and I have not been able to get it to work ever since.



    I've tried different sizes, card stock, you name it but it still keep coming going off line E3~



    I'm ready to dump this printer! Thanks for ANY help you can give!

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.

If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

    Sure, there was something (I don't know what) on the feed way - so what it helped me was a piece of hard paper (cover paper from the box of special print papers) and manually with a little bit of force push this paper through - and it works!! (As I said, there was something unvisible on the feed way)

Error 3 indicated - what is it and how do I fix it


E3 means that there is a paper jam. If you are getting the E3 error and there is not an actual paper jam you may need to do is simulate a paper jam. Try inserting paper crooked to cause a jam so that when it starts trying to feed the paper through it gets jammed. Then lift the cover up and take the paper out. You'll then get a bunch of the lights flashing. Turn the printer off and then back on and you should be good to go.

Indicating (paper jam).No paper present.


Hello thanks for using fixya

Actually you are facing E3 error, E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder

If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.
If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon service provider.

I hope this solution will helpful 4 u

Flashing E3 error code for a paper jam


I had the same problem with my mp 160, Error message was blinking. I tried to print but the printer would take 1/10 of the whole page and stop, even though rollers were moving. My solution for this was to take a piece of thin cardbord(I used a magazine cover), cut it in a size of A4, put it in printer, printed it and when the rollers start moving I forcebly pushed the cardboard through. Now it seems to work fine. Hope it does for you.

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.

E3 paper jam


if the paper is crooked it will come out wrinkled. If not the print is crooked indicating a different problem.
You wil have to look at the paper as it is printing, to see where it is catching, paper ramp maybe ( before the fuser entrance), exit rollers? ( only place I know there are bristles)

E3 is : paper jam in fuser

also check fingers or claws on fuser they catch the paper if worn.
