E3 error on Canon MP 150

I have looked, cleaned as suggested, and no paper jam. It will "bang" slightly and pull a piece of paper in slightly, then it is jammed. Pull that out, still alarms E3. It is MOST of the time but will still print occasionally. Any hope for this, or should I give to used computer dealer and let them deal with problem

Hello there this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

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.

I have a Canon MP 210 with an E3 error message (paper jam) though there is NO paper jam. The paper feeder is spinning but doesn't grab the paper. Please help! Thank you, Robin


I think there is a paper jam or something stuck in the sensor that is making it think there is a paper jam. It may be a very small piece of paper which you have missed. Look again.

Under one year old pixma mp150 all in one/ changed ink cartridges/error code E2 / saying no paper ????


I have had a MP 150 Cannon Printer with a E3 paper jam code..when NO visable paper jam is present ! Your No paper problem may be as a result of similar issue due to a small piece of paper stuck in the roller assembly out of sight. TRY this, Turn printer off wait (10 seconds) or more then turn printer back ON and listen for roller assembly to turn the ROLLERS and then FORCE FEED
a sheet of paper into rollers until it PULLS paper through and SEE if any scrap of paper comes out with the sheet !! If this works you should see that it clears the code. and resets your printer.
Let me know if this works. Phil at palcando@yahoo.com

GOOD LUCK !

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.

I Have a problem with my canon MP 150 Printer


From Canon Support: "Please be advised that if the MP 150 is displaying the letter E followed by number 3, this would indicate a paper jam. "

I have canon PIXMA MP


E3 error on the MP150 is a paper jam error. Make sure that there is nothing obstructing the paper going into the printer and that the feed mechanism doesn't have anyhting in it. Also run a roller cleaning from the printer software.

Printer Error E3


E3 error -
If paper has jammed in the machine, clear the jam, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

The above is direct from the user manual.
If there is no paper jam - look for any small pieces of paper that could be located near the roller sensor.
