Possible resetting might be tried. Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . make sure that any traces of paper is preset, it canbe a fault with the paper in detect sensor( optosensor)

Alarm light blinking and it keep showing E3,when i want to print,it keep asking me to remove the jammed paper,but i've checked 101 times!! no jammed paper


If the paper out tray is closed or not fully opened, then open it fully.
If that doesn't fix it, then the printer may believe that paper is jammed. You've already checked for jammed paper, so reload the paper supply and press the BLACK or COLOR button.
If that doesn't work, then disconnect the power for a few minutes and reconnect.
If that still doesn't work, there is probably a bad paper sensor or controller board.
Is your printer still under warranty?

Turn on machine & alarm immediately comes on. Flashing check printer 6000.


Are the cartridges in working order. I had similar problem with another make of printer when printer lights kept flashing and one of the cartridges was defective.

Red alarm wording showing, what does that mean


Hello,

The Alarm light will come on if:

1) The printer is out of paper.
2) The paper is jammed.
3) The paper is too far to the right. (The paper must cover the small groove on the left side of the rubber platen.)

Thanks for using Fixya.

My canon mx310 keeps showing a paper jam alarm and there is no paper jam. how do I fix it?


give this a try

  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.



alternative :
Load 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.

Canon MX300 Paper Jam


I have the same problem - every time I turn on my printer now, the alarm signal shows up with "Paper jam" but when I check for jammed paper, there is none. So I think there's something faulty with the printer. Is there any way to reset it? I've looked everywhere but can't find it.
