    Error 3 on the Canon MP160. Turning the printer on and off don't fix the problem. Please advise!

  • Anonymous Feb 08, 2009

    Have read elsewhere on the internet that this is a common fault with Canon MP160. Happened to us - not fixable, unit was only 2 years old and had light domestic usage. Have binned it & bought a replacement from a different manufacturer..

Paper will not feed


Hi, maybe there is still a little bit of jammed inside that you can\'t see. Try to see if there is and clean it. If you\'re sure there is no paper jam whatsoever, then there is a conflict with your feeding sensors or your cartridge isn\'t properly installed.
kind regards

My HP PSC 1610 paper feed is malfunctioning. When something is sent to printer the message states Out of Paper but there is paper. The rollers don't engage the paper.


Shut down your computer. Pull the plug from the printer to the computer.Wait two minutes. Start the computer and re insert the printer cables. It should recycle and work. f not re-post question.

When trying to print getting error Paper Jam in Manual Feeder. There is no Jam...we tap the side of the machine and it prints....any Ideas on what causes this to happen?


There is likely a loose connection going to the manual feed paper sensor.
The printer thinks there's paper in the manual feed, but of course since there isn't any paper there, when it tries to feed the paper in from the manual feed, the next paper sensor is not tripped, so it assumes there is a jam in the manual feed.
Start testing at the manual feed sensor, and work your way back to the board it connects to.
It may be the sensor itself just needs to be cleaned - these sensors are usually optical, and spraying canned air at it will often fix it up.
Also, make sure the lever that trips the sensor isn't sticking after using the manual feed.

My printer keeps showing the message "Clear paper jam, then press (check mark), there is no jammed paper in the printer.


If I load my paper at the 'proper' height, it will not feed. If I push the paper down too far, I get a 'paper jam' message. What works for me (even though it's a royal pain) is to feed 1 sheet of paper at a time. Put 1 sheet in so it's level with the top of the feed tray, then gently push it down 3/4 of an inch. That works for me. Good luck.

Paper does not feed


Try feeding a post card or a different kind of paper thru the feeder tray, make sure that it is going in smoothly.

Try something innovative for checking out those rollers

Epson Photo RX600 error messages


Hi.
Check for a paper jam inside the paper feeder... There's something blocking the path that is why the 3-beep is activated. Also put lubricant to the head's round-bar, gears and levers.

Goodluck... Fixya me...
