Question about Canon PIXMA MP210 Photo All-In-One Printer
I had this very annoying issue today. Checked everything and there seemed to be nothing wrong. Everything was clean!!! I was so annoyed.
Then I took the best solution listed up top and solution # 3. I turned off my printer. Switched the paper guide to A4. Folded my piece of paper as state in "Best Solution". I really made sure the paper was in the rollers.
I opened the top of my printer to be able to see the paper inside the printer. I turned the printer on. As soon as the printer rollers started going. I started to gently pull the paper from the inside.
The paper got caught in the rollers and the printer started going. Out came a piece of cereal that my daughterhad stuck in there that i could not see!!!!!
Now it is working fine!!!!!

Brilliant i tried this solution and now it works!!!
Opened up the printer, switched on the the printer (as if i was going to change the ink cartridges) and then fed a folded up piece of paper through the printer. It gathered up something which was clogging the printer and now operates as before.

Just power on the printer and force a single sheet of paper through the rollers.

I had exactly the same problem, printer virtually new, printed great for a couple of weeks, then today refused to take paper with E3 flashing. No apparent blockage - all looked clean, tried all the utilities, roller cleaning and plate cleaning, but wouldn't take paper!
Solved it by moving the paper size guide all the way to the right, then folding the top 20mm of a sheet of A4 over and loading it so fold is at the top facing you. This acts as a catcher for anything stuck in the printer. Hold the paper slightly crooked with the left side slightly further into the printer and press the copy button (with nothing in the scanner!). It should draw the paper in now (with some persuasion) and think it is printing (it's blank,of course). Check as the top of the sheet goes in that the fold is still tight and doesn't open up as it feeds in. Lo and behold, mine brought out a 5p piece - printer now prints perfectly!

Try good quality paper, sounds simple, but this is the cause of more than 80% of paper handling issues.
