Error on my MP160 Printer

I was trying to print a document on my printer, but the first sheet would not feed all the way. I was able to get the sheet out without having to pull it, but now my printer shows an E3 error. It says that there is a paper jam, but the roller is clear.

Check to see if the feed roller is sloppy, the locating lug can break on them, roller is around $30
otherwise you may have a foreign object lodged under the platen inside your printer, they are often impossible to see and difficult to get out, if you take a close look at the leading erdge of the paper that was fed halfway through and look for a dimple as if it hit something and couldn't go any further
try feeding a thick sheet of card backward through paper path taking care not to bend/break paper sensor (black lever) or you could turn printer upside down and gently shake

Why printer 4515 this error MANUALLY FEED OUTPUT STACK for duplex pritnting


HP P4515n is not a duplex printer by default. It is a network printer. ('n' suggests it is a network printer. Duplex printers have 'd' in the model number).
If you want to print both sides, manually feed sheet by sheet. Or else you can do the following:
If you are using, say MS Word, print only the odd pages (Print the normal way. No need to manually feed paper). Then arrange the printed papers in the proper order and keep the printed side as back side. Insert the set of papers in the printer and print only the even pages.
First print a document of about 6 pages to get the hang of it.

Printer won't print documents. Green light on


Hmmm, try feeding a sheet of paper into the manual feed slot... you might have inadvertantly sent a Manual feed job, and the printer is waiting for a sheet to be fed by you.

Changed the black printer cardtridge on a canon mp160 and getting errror code E19 when trying to align the heads...any idea why, and how to fix please? Thanks


This error idicates that the size of the document cannot be correctly detected or the document is too small when the Fit-to-Page copying is selected or the unit Failed to scan head alignment sheet correctly.

The remedy is

Make sure the document meets the requirements and correctly loaded on the Platen Glass. Then reload the document and press the Black or Color button.
Check that all necessary circles are filled in the Print Head Alignment Sheet, and that it is placed in the proper position and orientation on the Platen Glass. You can also perform print head alignment manually.
