Re: False Paper Jam

There could be a paper jam or some other obstruction preventing the printhead holder mechanism from moving back and forth.You must check the entire print path to confirm it..You can easily dismantle all of the covers with just pressing hard at specified points...A clip,popcorn, candy etc.will also obstruct the print head..If you want help rempoing the cover let me know i wil guide you..

Please help with cannon PIXMA MP150 printer problem, when trying to print, It reads that paper is jammed but I've checked several times and no paper is jammed. Printer will not print due to this...

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side
, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up.
To solve this first of all 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 Printers service provider.

I hope this solution helps you
Thank you for using FixYa!

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.

Printer will not print

There's a hidden sensor lever under the white guides behind the platen roller. Either a scrap of paper is holding it up, or it could be bent from pulling out a jam. It is a black lever behind the platen roller slightly to the right of center. You may need a shop to repair.

Paper jam (e3) BUT no paper jam

make sure you open all check points, if yours has a rear feed through, look in there also. it only takes a tiny piece of paper to cause it to say that. use a flash light, have had to use one to find several that way.

I've got error code E3 and someone at Canon

unfortunately, no. Canon will not sell you the parts for repair. They only sell to authorized repair centers.

My canon pixma mp150 have an E3. How can I fix

The E3 error indicates paper jam. If there is no paper jammed then look that if something is stuck inside the rollers. This may solve your problem.

Canon Pixma MP150 keeps blinking E 3 saying there is a paper jammed even though there's no paper in the printer. I found a little screw inside, could this be the problem?
