Re: canon m160 pixma
This is for those of you with the E3 error code.
Canon is kind of vague in their description of this one. There may be too much paper loaded. Take some out. Canon suggests turning the device off then back on to reset it. (Don't shoot the messenger, I'm trying to help)

If this doesn't help you, I'd prefer you not give a rating. Thank you Mike

This error code is related to a print head problem. Take out each of the ink cartridges one at a time and reinsert them. Next, go to the Maintenance menu of the printer and run the 'print head cleaning' cycle. If there is a 'deep cleaning' option run that, too. If none of the cleaning cycles fix the error code you can try removing each ink cartridge and cleaning the gold contact plate with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab. Be careful not to leave any cotton fragments behind and allow the alcohol to completely dry before reinserting the cartridges.
I have a Canon mx432 that was new, but gave me a 5100 message that I couldn't clear. I cleaned the transparent belt that guides the print cartridges, and now it works great. I spent hours on it until I cleaned that strip - - nothing else worked

Use cotton swabs dipped in hot water or a mixture of hot water and isopropyl alcohol
Use it to clean the print head and the electronic contacts on each ink cartridge
Once done, allow to dry and try again
If the error still persists, you have a damaged print head which needs to be replaced with a new one
Hope this help!

try to do a reinstall on your drivers and reboot. Set your printer as a default printer. set all the settings to default. Have a roller cleaning, and other maintenance task for your printer. And also try to reconnect your ink cartridge. =)
