Last night as I was printing jewel case covers, for some unknown reason several pieces of paper tried going through my ip3300 printer. The printer jammed. As gently as possible I removed the paper. When I looked inside the printer all the lights on the ink tank were out.
My question is have I damaged the printer beyond repair or is there a way to restart and get back to printing?

Hello and Welcome to FixYa! Paper jam means their may be small bit paper jam in side, actually there are some "micro sensors" that detect a paper
jam. There will be tiny piece of paper inside those
sensors, thus tripping the sensor and paper jammed keeps coming up. To solve this first of all Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feeder, If you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects thenTurn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air. If still problem exist then best & final option is to just contact to any Canon Printers service provider. I hope this solution helps you Thank you for using FixYa!
Try to open the printer cover and look for tiny paper shreds that might got stuck between the rollers. Also if your printer has a sensor, there could also be a tiny piece of paper blocking it, thus sensing a paper jam.
1: Remove Cartridge 2: Unplug the AC Power Cord 3: Hold down the RESUME button 4: Release RESUME after plugging in the AC Power cord. 5: Press the RESUME once within 5 seconds and release the RESUME . 6: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it. 7: Press and HOLD RESUME for two seconds or more and release it. 8: Unplug AC Power Cord to set data. Try this I found it doing a search on your machine, that foam was called a blotter, and it should work without it, good luck
Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by
holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the
paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling
out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do
this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any
obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or
ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the
printer back on.
If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
see alternative if the problem is still not solved.
a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume
button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the
printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.
hi just recently had these problems symptoms: LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover. Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side. There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.
Solution: 1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed.. 2. turned off the printer and turned it back on. 3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond. 4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force. 5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on. 6. this solved all of my problems. this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.
HI this is happening to me right now too-- try this-- I'm not sure if it's going to work-- but it's worth a shot.
On your computer, go to a print menu to print a document.
click on properties
go to maintenance tab
try the quiet/sleep mode
also, try going to custom and slow down the printing allowing for a little extra dry time.
reason I suggest it: my printer is doing the same, it's almost like the auto sheet feeder (only on the right side--why paper is grabbing weird) is grabbing too quickly. When in sleep mode, it seems to slow it down a little. I've also been printing 1 page at a time. I'm not saying this is a permanent fix, but at $50 for a pack of ink-- hopefully if you can't fix it-- it can get you to use up the last of the ink you have incase you decide to get a new printer.
