    Have the same problem today, 10 years no problems until this phantom jam when there is no jam!



    Paper is not jammed, lamp is turning on and moving when the power button is pressed, toner is not empty, paper feeds by manually rolling the little roller inside the side panel but not automatically when the button is pressed. I find it very interesting that there are 3 posts within 30 days on this same problem, however, I don't know how old the copiers are in the other post.



    Do we spend money to try to get it fixed, it's been good for a decade already, hate to lose it.

Check if you have any matter that is blocking the paper path, also try to clean the rollers that picks up paper. If you happened that copier is in a dusty enviroment, dust could deposit on rollers, and rollers when picking up paper will start slipping. Try to clean with alcohol.

    Most probably the pick up clutch is not working. The thing is to inspect this clutch you have to dismantle some things from the machine.

Canon Pixma MP160 shows errors E3 and won't print


Hi there,

Error E3 : Check if the paper has jammed in the machine, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

Paper Jams :
Cause : Paper jams in the paper output slot/ Auto Sheet Feeder.
Landscape Credit Card sized paper jams inside the machine.

Action : Remove the paper according to the following procedure.
1) Slowly pull the paper out, either from the Auto Sheet Feeder or from the paper output slot, whichever is easier.
* If the paper tears and a piece remains inside the machine, open the Scanning Unit and remove it. Be careful not to touch the components inside the machine at this time. After removing the paper, close the Scanning Unit, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON.
* If you cannot pull the paper out, turn the machine OFF and turn it back ON. The paper will eject automatically.

2) Reload the paper into the machine and press [Black] or [Color].
* If you have turned OFF the machine in step , you will need to retry printing, because this operation cancels any print jobs in progress.

If you cannot remove the paper or the paper tears inside the machine, or if the paper jam error continues after removing the paper, contact a Canon service representative.
Important : You cannot load Credit Card sized paper in the landscape orientation.

Hope this helps.
Have a good day.

Shows paper Jam on Canon 720 PC photo copier


Sounds funny but this model shows a jam when the exposure lite goes bad. Turn on the copier and watch the exposure lamp, should lite up and not flicker. Lamp is still available.

Auto Feed doesn't work. When I press the start button I get an error to open the copier and remove the paper. There is no paper above the glass. The symbols showing are LIFT and PAPER JAM.


There is a mircoswitch which may become slightly bent. The microswitch rides on the left hindge of the feeder inside the covers. When the start button is pressed the feeder may move upward slightly causing the miroswitch to loose contact with the hinge. You can usually reform the arm of the switch and make it work.
