Have you set up the page as A3? If so, should be ok if you set the printer paper size to A3. If you set up the page on A4 you will need to tell the the printer to 'scale to A3' and it's best to say you want to preview before printing

If A4 is ok but A3 jams then I would have to say there IS something hitting the paper. Try another A3 sheet and when it jams, pull the paper back out (after the printer is switched off) very slowly. When its out take a look at the leading edge and you will see a kink in the edge of the paper. Now place the paper back in the input tray and look at where the kink is in relation to the machine. That will tell you exactly where the obstruction is.

I hope you understand what i am trying to say.

Canon Imagerunner 210S - A3 error

A3 is a metric size paper. The document you are trying to print must have been formated for metric size paper. When you print select "Fit to printer margins" De-select "Choose paper source by PDF page size" and select the proper page size and source.
