Question about Canon PIXMA MP150 All-In-One InkJet Printer
My printer keeps saying there is a paper jam, i have looked in all parts i can see but i cannot find any paper jam. I have read other peoples problems and one says to make sure the sensor is clear from dust/paper but i cannot see a sensor, can anyone tell me where to find this or if there might be any other solutions Thanks
You are a genius, it WORKED!

I solved paper jam message E3 on Canon PIXMA MP150 by selecting a different paper type.
Want to share this information: Always when I tried to print a photo I got E3 displayed. But I could print any other things well. After many attempts to solve this problem I found out that my photo print works fine when I select "Professional Fotopapier" (I live in Austria so I installed a german driver - but I think this selection is for PR-101) although I use "Fotoglanzpapier Plus" (PP-101). I also got the E3 when selected "Fotoglanzpapier Plus" and tried to print an empty word document on standard paper.
Hope this helps

I had the same problem. I knew I didn't have a paper jam, but I used my garage air compressor to blow out the inside and also the paper tray area. I didn't see any bits of paper or debris come loose, but it worked.

Take the paper out and gently curve all pages. Then put them back in with the convexity facing you. I had the same problem and this fixed it after long cursing, trial and error. All the printers in this line seem to suffer from this problem as far as I know. Hope this helps! ben

I was looking for a solution for my HP and found the answer at an obvious place...HP's website...
I was able to fix it by taking off the rear door panel and for some reason putting the panel back on fixed it...
So if you have a rear panel on your printer then try taking it off and putting it back on...if this doesn't help go to the website of your printer and troubleshoot that way.

Ditto! Saved me from certain insanity over this problem. Thanks.

I have a mp 160. I did all the other solutions and nothing worked. Then I MOVED the printer forward a few inches, and voila, the printer began printing. Who knows?

1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.
