Question about Canon PIXMA MP600 all-In-One InkJet Printer
I have a Canon MP800; it evidently had a problem feeding some extra slick paper and began displaying the "paper jam in paper output slot" error message; I've been looking for bits and pieces of paper, etc. and could find nothing; I had powered down, disconnected from my PC, called Canon (who suggested I buy a new one and had a sales rep waiting to take my order), and even checked with the IT folks at the office; nothing; I noticed the comment to try forcing some "cardstock" through the printer as the wheels began to turn after a power-up, and thought "oh well, give it a try; I have nothing to lose" and simply thought I'd have to buy a new printer this weekend; I CANNOT BELIEVE that worked!! I powered up the printer one last time; as the wheels began to turn I forced a piece of cardstock through them; I did this as if the cardstock was in the papertray--not from the manual feed on the back of the printer; the printer took the cardstock all the way through the print cycle (up through the printer and back out again) AND the error message disappeared and the printer is READY TO PRINT AGAIN!!! I cannot thank you guys enough; this site is my new best friend--again to all of you who suggested pushing cardstock through the printer--MANY THANKS!!!

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others
Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

Once I got E3 error I run 110 lb card stock in copy mode (nothing on glass so ink is not used). After a few tries printer started picking up paper. I run several times and now it seems to be working. I guess it cleaned itself.

I have it too. I turned it up-side-down, rattled it to see if anything would dislodge - nothing. I have gone through 3 of these in three months after having perfect performance for 9 9 months. I know some of the tricks but nothing works.
How do you do a hard reset of a MP-600 anyway?

Maybe you have a small object inside the paper trail ( i had a very thin woood stik that accidentally fell in when i changed the cartridges). After several resets the rolls just got the thing out of the system and everything worked fine. I don't know a way to get an object out of the paper trail, with me it was luck, but maybe somebody can help with this.
