The MP E error relates to the registration assy on the rear of the machine. There are 22 possible causes of this error. I suggest you get a service manual for the machine and work throught the easier checks one by one. You can get a manual from or

    The most likely cause of the problem stems from the solenoid and gear that is part of the pick up mech. This reqiures a modification to be made to the MSI assy and is not something that can be done by the home user.

    Contact the people at The Service Manual Shop for the C1100 MP E Jam Modification info if you wish to tackle the problem yourself.

I sometimes get a Jam E error which is caused by the fact that the paper pick-up wheel doesn't grab the paper. E is the door at the back and the first NEXT place the paper would pass a checkpoint.

The problem is the paper. It's too damp, or too smooth, or curled too far down a the pick up end (for instance, if you've already passed it through the printer once and bent it by the heat process)

Fluff the paper, fill the stack, pick up the door-end of the paper and apply a little pressure to assist it as the pick up roller grabs it...

Something went wrong during the maintenance. thereby issuing a false alarm

1.remove the toners,PCU and give the printer a good blowout.

2.using surgical spirit with all covers open, trace all photo sensors within the printer and wipe them clean.

Most likely during the preventive maintenance soot/toner/dust particles settled on the photo sensors which can be found inside the printer as well as on the teflon papper region

you may have replaced the cart with a faulty one. It does happen occasionally. Get another cart and swap that one also. If the error clears, return the original full cart for a refund as faulty. If the error does not clear you may have a problem with the receiver on the C dev and it will need an Engineer.
