The flashing code may be a sign that your printer needs servicing, it's most likely the mechanism that feeds the paper. If you tell me what printer it is maybe I can help you interpret the code.

Hope this helps

My canon Mp 140 keeps Flashing E 3 after I removed the paper that was jammed.

From what I've seen, unplug this machine for about 15 minutes or just forget about it for a while and go back later and plug it in. make sure the paper isn't jammed. If the code persists, let me know.

MP 830 flashes between the copy button and hazard light(triangle symbol with squiggle in it)12 x.then starts the same 12x after a short pause.It will not do anything..whats the problem?

Error 6A00
The 6A00 is a Canon generic code for paper path jam.

Solution 1:
Move the printhead carriage back and forth a few times.

Solution 2:
Check the purge unit: Moving the print head assembly will not clear a purge unit if its jammed with paper, paper clips, push pins, screws, cookie crisp, flower bud pods or the like.

Solution 3:
Press the ink pads down in the purge unit.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

Canon MP 510 paper jam

I had the same problem and found a small coin in the back feeder. Remove the back coverplate and tip the machine onto its back and give it a good shake. You might be surprised at what falls out.

Flashing E3 error code for a paper jam

I had the same problem with my mp 160, Error message was blinking. I tried to print but the printer would take 1/10 of the whole page and stop, even though rollers were moving. My solution for this was to take a piece of thin cardbord(I used a magazine cover), cut it in a size of A4, put it in printer, printed it and when the rollers start moving I forcebly pushed the cardboard through. Now it seems to work fine. Hope it does for you.
