    I also have a "paper is jammed" on the output slot message. But there is no paper to be seen. I have emptied both back and front cassette but the error message will not go away.

    I have the same problem. I have turned it up-side-down, shaken it,trying to dislodge anything - no go.  I have gone through 3 of these printers in 3 months with the same problem but Canon has great tech support and they send me a new one.

    How do you do a reset?

    I actually do have some paper that is jammed in there, I can see it but can't get to it. Do I need to go to service center?

    it says that there is a paper jam in the paper output slot. i cant see any paper anywhere that is causing the jam. is this a gliche in the product?

    I had a paperjam and removed the sheet which was intact.  No matter what I do--following all the directions in the manual--I continue to get an error that says" paper output slot. The paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press ok." No matter what I do, I continue to get this message.  Essentially ther is no paper in the printer, but it keeps claiming it is jammed. Any suggestions?

    Same problem. Got the paper out of the machine (exact match to tear in the sheet) and the error message won't go away.

I have a Canon MP800; it evidently had a problem feeding some extra slick paper and began displaying the "paper jam in paper output slot" error message; I've been looking for bits and pieces of paper, etc. and could find nothing; I had powered down, disconnected from my PC, called Canon (who suggested I buy a new one and had a sales rep waiting to take my order), and even checked with the IT folks at the office; nothing; I noticed the comment to try forcing some "cardstock" through the printer as the wheels began to turn after a power-up, and thought "oh well, give it a try; I have nothing to lose" and simply thought I'd have to buy a new printer this weekend; I CANNOT BELIEVE that worked!! I powered up the printer one last time; as the wheels began to turn I forced a piece of cardstock through them; I did this as if the cardstock was in the papertray--not from the manual feed on the back of the printer; the printer took the cardstock all the way through the print cycle (up through the printer and back out again) AND the error message disappeared and the printer is READY TO PRINT AGAIN!!! I cannot thank you guys enough; this site is my new best friend--again to all of you who suggested pushing cardstock through the printer--MANY THANKS!!!

Don't know if it's the same problem i had but its maybe worth a try. Canon MP160
My paper went in a little, the wheels were turning but it didn't take the rest of the paper or print.
Someone replied to my problem, i tried it and it fixed 1st time. Also seems to of worked for others

Solution:- Use a piece of thin card, a magazine cover is what i used, make sure its A4 size then try to print something, as the paper starts moving push it through! and hey presto it worked for me, everything printing fine now

Once I got E3 error I run 110 lb card stock in copy mode (nothing on glass so ink is not used). After a few tries printer started picking up paper. I run several times and now it seems to be working. I guess it cleaned itself.

I have it too. I turned it up-side-down, rattled it to see if anything would dislodge - nothing.  I have gone through 3 of these in three months after having perfect performance for 9 9 months.  I know some of the tricks but nothing works. 
How do you do a hard reset of a MP-600 anyway?

Maybe you have a small object inside the paper trail ( i had a very thin woood stik that accidentally fell in when i changed the cartridges). After several resets the rolls just got the thing out of the system and everything worked fine. I don't know a way to get an object out of the paper trail, with me it was luck, but maybe somebody can help with this.

The pick up rollers are dirty. You need to clean them with a damp cloth. These rollers should be just above the leading edge of the paper when loaded.

Jamming problem

try this
  1. Turn off the printer.
  2. Remove any paper trays. Inspect them for wrinkled or damaged paper.
  3. Also open the back cover of the printer if this model has one.
  4. Open any other doors that give access to the printer's paper path and to the toner or ink cartridge.
  5. If necessary, remove the toner or ink cartridge. Place it away from light/ sun light to avoid damaging it.
  6. If you find a piece of jammed paper, remove it by holding it with both hands and pulling firmly. The goal is to keep the paper from tearing. If several pieces are jammed together, try pulling out the middle piece first to loosen the jam.
  7. If the paper does tear, try rotating the roller gears manually to free the paper. Don't force anything, though. Do this step especially if the jam message comes up repeatedly without any obvious paper jam, there may be a small tear of paper inside.
  8. Ones the printer is free of paper Replace the toner or ink cartridge and paper trays, close any doors you opened and turn the printer back on.
  9. If the printer paper jam message still appears, then there is still some paper in the printer. Reinspect the paper path.
  10. see alternative if the problem is still not solved.

alternative :
Load a piece of thick paper, for example photo paper and press the resume button (may be diffrent button on diffrent models) a few times to the printer picks up the paper and puts it through the machine.

Jammed paper

Removed the new paper from feed slot, pressed the on button which allowed the `grabber` to release the jammed paper slightly and then was able to [with the aid of long tweezers] remove the jammed paper through the feed slot.
