I doubt very much that you need to reset the printer, or, even if you did, that this would make much difference. It sounds as if there is a menu item which you should be able to bring up on the display which then allows you to release and extract the cartridge. I have scoured the web for information on this one and Canon, naturally, only supply the software, not the manual. If you have a manual can you look up and quote the relevant bit in it which deals with changing the cartridge? If there is nothing there which says that you have to go to a menu item to release it then it sounds like a mechanical problem - as in 'needs a bit of a yank'. I'll keep looking.

SOURCE: "paper-feed error"
Had the same problem with mine, very intermittent. Remove all the paper and open the feed tray lid so you can get access to the three grey pinch rollers. Start printing then push on the roller with your finger to try and 'rough it up' (if it clicks you are pressing too hard).
The fault appears to be that the pinch rollers are loosing their grip and can not pull the glossy paper through. I dare say using a mild washing up liquid solution would be better but this is a safe quick fix.
Did this to mine and it has worked fine ever since.

This is sort of scenario is usually caused by dust inside the printer. Dust has a way of preventing the sensors from detecting paper. Also it prevents the rollers from having a firm grip on the paper while picking paper. I will suggest you get a long handle brush and try to reach as far inside the printer as possible and brush (from the back and front). If you have a blower you may also use it to blow well into the interior of the printer (If you do not have a blower the brushing will still do if you do it well.) This, if properly done should do it. Brush especially the rollers etc.

Testimonial: "That was exactly the information I needed. It still needs a little push on the paper once in a while, but I'm back to printing. THX"
I had to completely unscrew and disassemble the printer then cut or break the piece of plastic from the removable ink cassette that was blocking it from being removed. See attached pic.
