Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Cannon PIXMA MP150 and it won't print because the back roller/loader isn't working. The front rollers are working fine, but when I try to print nothing happens in back and I receive an E3 error message. Is there a software fix for this? Any help would be most appreciated.

    Yeah, I tried resetting the programming, then I turned it upside down and shook it then I forced a piece of cardboard through it a few times and nothing happened. So I'm assuming it's my drive assembly. It had been feeding the paper in crooked (a little slow on one side) before it just quit feeding altogether. I hooked up my old Dell 720 and will just keep the Cannon for a scanner till I decide on a new one. Thanks!

E3 is paper jammed error code. Either paper jammed inside or your Drive Assy is not functioning properly.

Paper jams

85% of paper jams are caused by worn rollers Chances are, when your tech arrives, he'll tell you that the jams were caused by worn feed rollers. The rubber treads in the rollers wears down, making them smooth, so they won't pick up the paper. Sometimes, they are aged, which also gives them a smoother rounded texture, causing jams. The quick fix is to liven up that roller with a mixture of alcohol and soap. Damp a rag with the solution and wipe the rollers clean with it. That's make them more pliable and the paper jams will cease.

Printer will not print

There's a hidden sensor lever under the white guides behind the platen roller. Either a scrap of paper is holding it up, or it could be bent from pulling out a jam. It is a black lever behind the platen roller slightly to the right of center. You may need a shop to repair.

When printing paper gets jammed immediately gets so far and tears

this is likely something fallen down the back of your paper feed, tip it up and see if you can dislodge it, when the paper feeds see which side gets stuck and which side is pulled in. the problem behind one of the rollers on the side that the paper gets stuck, so if you can get inside with a spatula or wedge to lift the roller/rollers onthat side and tip the printer backwards youve got a fair chance of removing the problem. alternatively the problem could be with the front set of rollers check that there is nothing within the printer behind these rollers also.

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
