Question about Canon PIXMA MP240 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Error report says E3 paper jam, but there's no jam. I can't reset. The LIGHT WON'T GO OFF! And won't print.
I had the same error message pretty much the first time i used it was ready to have a huge tanty then found this link on this same sight under other cannon printers and it worked a treat! just turn it off and place the slightly force the thin piece of cardboard in the front wheels where the paper normally comes out of then turn it back on the printer will push out the cardboard and the problem hopefully will be fixed. good luck! http://www.fixya.com/support/t250696-error_number_3

Found that the paper sensor was not fully seated on it's clip. Sensor is located under the scanner lid in the middle of the white plastic were the paper rollers are. The sensor is a short black stick with a spring coiled around it. The clip for it is just to the left of it. I used a flat head screw driver and slid it on the left side of the clip and gave it a clock-wise twist to pop the clip back into the side of the sensor.
Powered on the printer and the E3 error was gone. Tested scanning and printer without issues.
