E3 error and no paper is jammed

Hello There please try it may clean it up for you There this may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I can't print

Hi Paul. Try lightening settings from Windows Control Panel>Printers and Devices>right-click XEROX>settings. My CMYK and mono printers are SAMSUNG, last one was HP. The menu screenshot should hopefully be similar to Xerox. As only the XEROX is doing this, I suspect your XEROX specific user settings in Windows are set too dark. The signature was probably done on paper, which is fibrous when magnified. When scanned, the slight shadows between the fibers are converted to random white and slightly off-white pixels. To the human eye it appears white, but when darkened, the not pure white pixels are visible, creating noise. Besides setting darkness to normal or light, you could also try setting ECO to on. If the xerox has economy printing. printersettings-4febss1ixlhhr5zh2r4k1b5y-2-0.png

Hi I have error code

I just fixed this error by cleaning the cartridge contacts, as they had set the alarm on for not recognizing the cartridges and this had the printer on "maintenance mode". I cleaned and installed them and the alarm was off immediately. And finally I could scan my document.

New ink cartridges are installed. No error messages but printer not scanning or printing. I have deep cleansed it twice.

Scanning isn't related to the cartridges problem unless you meant copying. The instructions to align the cartridges might help, if it insists on alignment after new cartridges are added. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/24391/Canon-Pixma-Mp190.html?page=35 Did you remove the (usually pink) tabs from the cartridges before installing? Did you get a printout from a test page or from the cleaning operation? Also try a removal, then reinstall of the device.

Why is my canon is printing blurred lines

If you're like me you don't use it everyday which means that the inkjet nozzles become clogged over time. If you use the menu panel on your Canon printer navigate to the MAINTENANCE menu and run all of the different cleaning cycles pertaining to the print head and nozzle. You may have to run them more than once unfortunately. Fortunately, the cleaning processes are quite good. Are you getting 'low ink' warnings at all? If so, it's time to change the ink cartridge that is low. You can tell either by the on-screen message on your computer or if you lift up lid to access the ink cartridges. They will center themselves after about 10 seconds allowing you to change them. Low ones will be flashing red. Let me know if you have any problems. Don't forget to rate my response. Good luck!

Why is my canon printing blurred lines colors are wrong ans straight lines are misaligned

You've got three different problems there. Blurred lines could be a printer head problem. Colors are wrong suggests that at least one of your ink tanks may be out of ink now. Straight lines being misaligned means that you need to realign your head again. Go into your Canon's menu and look for something like Maintenance. There should be an option to align heads in there, along with something that says Clean Nozzle or Jets. Try cleaning and see if that resolves your problem. If this is a printer that's been sitting idle for some time, you might need to clean the printer head as well. Search YouTube for instructions on cleaning printer head and/or cartridge. You usually use alcohol on a Q-tip to do that.

Alarm light blinking and it keep showing E3,when i want to print,it keep asking me to remove the jammed paper,but i've checked 101 times!! no jammed paper

If the paper out tray is closed or not fully opened, then open it fully. If that doesn't fix it, then the printer may believe that paper is jammed. You've already checked for jammed paper, so reload the paper supply and press the BLACK or COLOR button. If that doesn't work, then disconnect the power for a few minutes and reconnect. If that still doesn't work, there is probably a bad paper sensor or controller board. Is your printer still under warranty?
