Question about Xerox WorkCentre XE90FX Laser Printer

1 Answer

I had a paper jam a few days ago. Turned printer off then cleared jam and when I turned it on again it still had the E3 error code indicating it is still jammed. There is no paper in it anywhere. I have gone thru it top and bottom even with a flashlight and cannot see any paper in it. The ink cartridge is new last month, and I have only used the printer twice since it was installed. I cleaned heads on both cartridges already with paper roll as requested and the printed still gives me a E3 error code indicating a paper jam. HELP please?

Check the paper feed tray for bent papers. Also, try blowing over the sensors to clear any debris. Check for small pieces that may have been left behind. If all fails, unplug it from the outlet, then start it up. Good luck!

SOURCE: printer indicates paper jam every few pages, but

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

SOURCE: The paper jam indicator on in error?

So it sounds like the machine is not feeding paper from the paper cassette. This is a common problem.
There are 2 possibilities. 1 easy and one a little tougher. The simple fix is cleaning the paper feed tires. Just pull out the paper cassette, then remove all the paper. You will see 2 felt type pads on the spring loaded metal plate. Spray these 2 pads with some glass cleaner. Dry the metal plate a little then lock the plate down and re-install the cassette without paper! Make sure the lower tray is selected for paper feeding and press the print button. The machine should try to feed a few times then shut down with a P in the display. Reset the P using the clear key then press print again. Repeat this procedure 5 or 6 times. Then remove the tray, dry the pads a bit then re-load the paper, re-install the tray and give it a try. If dirty feed rollers were the cause then this procedure will fix it. Let me know how this works out.
Thank You for using Fixya

Ive just turned on my Canon pixma mp250 printer and have an Error, the screen is flashing E 0 3??? have tried resetting but that hasn't had any affect.


An E3 error code in a Canon MP210 printer is frustrating. This code reflects a paper jam that is not always apparent immediately and can be indicative of other problems.

Remove the jammed paper by pulling it from the front or top of the printer. If it does not come out, restart the printer to eject the paper. If the paper fails to come out or rips, remove the cover and retry. Once you have removed all visible paper, check paper sensor paths for debris or damage, blowing it out as needed.

Reload the paper as recommended and print a test page using the printer's software. If the error continues, the sensor that generates the error may be damaged. If so, take your printer to an authorized service center.

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.

Paper jam problem in pixma mp145. E3 error.


hi
just recently had these problems
symptoms:
LED flashing E3 code and alarm light was solid. But dissapeared when opened the coved and came back on when closed the cover.
Also the when the cover was open the inks did not slide out to the left and stayed to the right side.
There was no paper jam, but error said paper jam.

Solution:
1. I took a thick piece of paper, from like a paper folder ones, thick enough to go in the printer and not curl up when pushed..
2. turned off the printer and turned it back on.
3, while printer was turning on,and makings sound as it does normally when turning on, I pushed through the piece of paper and the rotors stoped for a millisecond.
4.the rotors started again and pushed out the paper by it self with out my force.
5. I let the printer get started. and then turned it off and then on.
6. this solved all of my problems.
this was the first problem ever with this printer in 3 years.,preety good printer.

Flashing E3 error code for a paper jam


I had the same problem with my mp 160, Error message was blinking. I tried to print but the printer would take 1/10 of the whole page and stop, even though rollers were moving. My solution for this was to take a piece of thin cardbord(I used a magazine cover), cut it in a size of A4, put it in printer, printed it and when the rollers start moving I forcebly pushed the cardboard through. Now it seems to work fine. Hope it does for you.

Printer Error E3


E3 error -
If paper has jammed in the machine, clear the jam, reload the paper in the machine correctly and then press [Black] or [Color].

The above is direct from the user manual.
If there is no paper jam - look for any small pieces of paper that could be located near the roller sensor.
