Although you cannot see any paper jammed in the machine, take a look at the sheet that was jammed. Is there a piece of it missing?, if so then THERE IS some in the machine. If no then you may have caught a sensor arm and pulled it out of position so it is stuck and thats why the machine thinks its jammed. the usual place for this to happen is seen when you open the main cover so you can see the ink cartridges. Do this an then kill the power. now slide the printhead/carriage all the way to the left. Now you can see all the gubbins. Ok, under where the carriage runs is a long roller about the width of an A4 sheet of paper. behind this are a row of white roller attached to white fingers. I thin there are 5 or 6 of them. above the 5th or 6th is a small slot in the metal where a black arm should move freely. I bet its stuck with paper. Try to fish out the paper with a paperclip.

good luck

I have a Canon Pixma MP 240 printer. It's been out of black ink. I installed a new ink cartridge. Now, there's an "E3" flashing on the screen. And it won't print anything.

Error E3 indicates that there is a paper jam.

Firstly remove the ink cartridge you have just installed and check to see if there are any bits of paper underneath that.

Secondly check the rest of the printer for any jams paying careful attention to any rollers as small bits of paper can get stuck to them.
