Question about Canon PIXMA MP160 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hi all! My trouble is the following: when I try to print or to make a copy, the paper goes through blank, then the next leaf, and then E3 appears. What do I have to do? Probably there is a problem with cartridge, or?
I work in a shop repairing these printers and have had a large number with the same fault - displaying E-3 with no jam in the paper path. This is caused by a broken part in the paper feed mechanism that pevents the printer from taking the paper. The part located right at the bottom of the printer looks like two white gears connected together with a central spring. At present I am trying to find a supplier of the spare parts - will check back.

I got the same error E3 paper jam, with no visible jam. I used a Compressed Gas Duster to it and sprayed everywhere I could in that darn printer...then pushed through 3 papers (to clean it), then it started working again!
