there are many spring loaded switches within a printer that monitor the location of a sheet of paper, it is possible that one of these switches got stuck and is the cause of your problem. Printers can be quite difficult to work on, so I would recommend taking it to a local repair shop to have it looked at. If the switch is simply stuck it may be a quick and easy repair.
Another thing to look at is to make sure all of the rollers that feed the paper through your printer are moving, if one is stuck it could be giving you the same error.
Good day, I will give you the procedure how to clean the roller or canon pixma mp160.
Procedure: 1. Press [On/Off] to turn on the machine, then remove any paper from the auto sheet feeder. 2. press [maintenance] repeatedly until <b> appears. 3. press [black] or [color]. 4. repeat steps 2 to 3 twice. 5. open the paper output tray. 6. load 3 or more A4 or letter-sized paper in the auto sheet feeder. 7. repeat steps 2 to 3 times. the sheet paper is automatically fed in and then out of the machine.

Switch off the printer and disconnect the power supply. Allow any residual charge to fade away before putting your hands or metal tools inside the chassis.
Pin down the exact location of the jam. The three hot spots for a jam are the paper tray, anywhere between the feed tray and the print carriage, or between the print carriage and the output tray.
Take off the front paper tray if the sheet got stuck while it was still in the front area of the printer. If the sheet jammed here, you should be able to see most of the paper.
Pull on the sheet with both hands and steady pressure. Do not tug as you might rip the paper, leaving a chunk of it deeper in the machine.
Open the back panel to reach paper jammed between the feed tray area and the print carriage of the all-in-one printer. Carefully remove the jammed paper from the machine.
Use the carriage access door to reach a jam further inside the all-in-one printer. You may need to move the print carriage out of your way to clear the jam.
Return any access panels to their closed and locked positions. Plug your printer back in and flip the power switch.
I guess its a coz of paper jam in your printer. Heavy cardstock and certain types of slick or coated paper can cause frequent paper jams. To better isolate the cause of your problem (machine or paper), try a new **** of regular 20 lb copy or laser paper.
Don't Overload Overloading your paper tray can cause paper jams. Your manual may say that your input tray can hold 250 sheets -- but if you keep getting jams, try loading 225 sheets instead.
Check the Paper Check the minimum/maximum paper weights that your printer can handle. Paper that is too thick, or too thin, can cause jams.
If you still get paper jams after this may be its time to clear the internal of the machine..You might want to have a look at the following link..
I had a paper jam. I removed the offending sheet of paper which unfortunately tore into 4 pieces as it came out. Upon piecing the sheet of paper back together - there is a small piece missing. I've checked the printer thoroughly - nothing can be found!
