Even though u cant see a jam there there is exactly a jam inside U believe it or not thats why paper jam Look for the paper detection sensor below the carriage use ur common sense I cant say exactly it is detect sensor it may be some other sensor related to gear wheel set but most of the cases paper jam occurs due to malfunction of paper detect sensor If u find it use a thin tool to see it is working properly otherwise give it to someone know how to repair & pay a reasonable price thx
E3 is paper jam.First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service, because in most case when have a paper jam it's under withe rollers and printer must be disassembled.
There are several things that can cause a paper jam error, even though there is no paper stuck. The most common is that the paper pickup rollers are worn or dirty, and can't grab paper. Even though there is no paper jammed in the machine, it will show the error message. The solution is to clean the roller with alcohol and a lint-free cloth (don't use paper towels). If the roller is very worn, you will need to replace it.
