Try to position the printer upside down and put something to loosen the paper feeder. sometimes there is only a foreign object that cause this thing to happen. If that does not work then take a piece of cardboard like from the back of a legal pad of paper, and force it in through the rollers? as far as it will go. Turn the printer off and on to get the rollers working and then pull out the cardboard. Since doing that it feeds the paper in correctly. Hope that works for you too!

Canon mp190 printer says there is no paper when there is?

1- take out all paper in tray, is there one that started to go up? \
2-turn printer aound, look at the back there should be a door open, either by squeezing tabs or turning knob.
is there a paper there?
3-did you tear paper when it had a paper jam? there might be a piece stuck on a sensor.
There are actuators that spring back when a paper passes over them, telling the machine if paper is there or not, and for a determined time.
9_6_2012_6_15_36_pm.jpg there should be no more than 3. look for them, see if they move freely and spring back,

My daugher is using Canon MP190, and there is a blink error message E3, which according to the online manual, it is due to a paper jam. We checked, and there is no paper left in the printer, but the error...

Hello, Welcome to FixYa!

E3 error is mostly because of paper jam. their may be small bit paper jam in side
There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and saying you paper jam.

To solve it
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 then
Turn 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 service provider

Anymore help regarding the issue, I am here to help
Thank you for using FixYa!

My canon mp190 gives E3 paperjam error but there is no paperjam how do i fix it?

I have solved this problem with read post at thanks to "Canon MP198 Printer Error E3 is becaused something inside of the printer that makes paper sensor not function properly. To fix this error E3 you must open inside of the printer to remove the things." you must open your printer to remove the things, maybe waste letter or other small part things. Read the post for complete it.

Mp190 printer keeps giving me an E2 error It is a Canon PIXMA MP190 Special Edition

When the printer is not functioning properly you may need to reset it:

1) Press and hold <On/Off> for one second. Display will go blank. (If this does not happen, unplug the printer).
2) Wait approx. 10 seconds
3) Plug in the device - Press <On/Off> if necessary to power on the printer
4) Wait until the device has finished its startup routine

If the problem still persists, your MP190 may need servicing by a qualified technician.
