Good day sir/maam, the gear on your printer that holds the print head/ink is stuck, loosen it by applying oil or contact cleaner, check your local dealer if they have warrantee for your printer. If you really want to do the repairs yourself the service is like this.

  • open the printer, and check what is causing the grinding. usually mechanical elements are involve.
  • remove dirt and clean the ink spill.
  • loosen the print head/ink, apply oil and contact cleaners.
  • check the contacts and connectivity of the mechanical parts with the main circuit board.
  • test parts and if needed, replace it.
  • test and retest. do everything again until the printer works.
Hope this may help, its kinda dirty but saves you money for service.

Canon pixma mx892 front door flap broke - was printing but now I get lots of clicking noises and then a message telling me to power off. The rear paper tray does work but lots of clicking.


What's the error message? Did it give you an error number?

My first thought: That printer detects if the front door is fully open, and if it's not, it gives you an error message and makes you turn it off and on. So look at the hinges where the door was connected and see if you can see the switch that tells the printer whether the door is open. Then figure out how to move that switch to the "open" position.

I hate that front door.

Error E3 when no paper jam


MP160 PIXMA paper feed jam E3 error. I completely solved this on my Canon MP160 printer but it is a common problem and the fix may work for others such as MP130 MP140 MP145 MP150 MP170 or MP180. With the problem I had, the printer would make the usual motor whirring noises but would not feed the paper. The usual c-clunk sound that indicated the feed roller has been engaged was not there. The screen warning said to remove jammed paper and the printer showed an E3 error.

The problem was caused by the ink cartridge carrier becoming stcky on its track and not fully returning to the rest position on the right side (as viewed from the front). The fix involved taking the printer apart and lubricating the cartridge carrier track and the ramps that lift the cradle that rises to cover the printheads. Unfortunately you have to dismantle the printer and separate the scanner unit to get to the lubrication points. Its not a quick fix.

When you have the printer apart you will see a prominent white lever held by a coiled spring just behind the rest position of the ink cartridge carrier. The lever is actuated by the ink cartridge carrier when it moves to the right. If the lever is not actuated, the motor drive will never engage the large grey feed roller and the paper in the hopper cannot be fed into the printer. Make sure to also put some lube onto the lever at the point where it is struck by the ink cartridge carrier.

Paper jam


Hi divvy123, this is as follows.

E23 Paper feed error.
You may have to look very carefully for paper still in the printer where it feeds.
Also, the paper will press on a switch to tell the printer that there is paper present.
Another thing to check would be paper alignment.
Please let me know if this helps.
If not I will help you get an answer.

Pixma mp160 error message


Ok, my machine was also showing E3, and would NOT go away. My solution: turn the machine off, feed a piece of thick cardstock into the paper feed.Turn the machine on, let the machine take the paper almost all the way in, then pull it back all the way out against the feed. My E3 disappeared and has not yet returned!! Hope this helps David
