    There should be a reset button either on the front or on the back of the printer.

Paper jam error message

On mine you have to take the duplexer out of the back of the machine to convince it there's no jam. On the 4350 you press 2 buttons on the sides of the duplexer and it slides out. Look at it, scratch your head and then push it back in. Magically the paper jam is cleared.

HP 3030 error message paper jam - clear papaer path. There is no paper in the machine. I have cleared and cleaned the machine, turned it off, waited 30 secondsand turnedit back on and still get the error...

This error message is displayed by the printer when paper is jammed in one or more locations. In such a case, users are recommended to remove the jammed paper from the specified location. The entire paper path must be checked for any pieces of paper. To stop the message, open and close the top most cover of the printer. Lastly, verify the flags and the sensors. If the problem persists, the cause of the error message could be a broken sensor or sensor lever.

Phantom Paper Jam

There may be a problem with the fuser unit. First check all the doors and drawers for paper jams, including removing the toner cartridge and looking inside. Leave the cartridge out, turn off your machine, unplug for 1 minute, then turn back on. Close door without the cartridge inside. Machine should tell you to insert cartridge. Put it back in, and see what it does. If a simple reset like i have described does not solve the problem, there may be a small piece of torn paper somewhere, or a sensor may be broken or dirty. Please reply with the results!

Cleared paper jam &printer will not reset

I had to turn off the printer & disconnect the power cord. I also had some material that was backed up on hold from the night before that was preventing the current material from being printed & I had to go in & cancel the documents to be printed before the printer would function.

I cleared the paper jam but printer still wants paper jam cleared.

Turn the printer off, unplug it, wait 10 seconds, plug it back it, and turn it back on. If it still says there's a paper jam, there is something interfering with it. Turn it off again, pull everything out that you are meant to, poke around, take anything you see that doesn't belong out, put everything back in the right place, and turn it back on. If you still have a problem, you should contact the manufacturer.

Printer error code

E-3 indicates a paper jam. Turn the power off. Try removing the paper and lift up the scanner top to see if there is any paper, debris, or foriegn object in there. Gently remove anything you find. Turn the power back on and press the start (black or copy button) and hopefully you will have cleared the problem. If not, you can try to reset the machine by turning it off, unplug it from the power source and remove the USB cable if it is connected to a computer. Plug it back in and turn the power back on. If this still does not clear your error, it may need to be serviced. I had this same problem last night. I did not find any paper jammed, but there was a small black twisty tie stuck in under the roller - it took me several tries and over two hours last night and another 2 hours today to discover the problem. It works fine now. However, before my second try at fixing it today, I had given up on it and purchased another printer online. Now what will I do with two? Hope this helps you. You can also try calling Canon tech support at 1-800-828-4040.
