Canon Canon Pixma MP150

Canon PIXMA MP150 service manual

I just got the service manual for PIXMA MP150. Anybody interested? E-mail me.
Hi - grateful for advice on my Canon Pixma 150. The other day I replaced the ink cartridges as usual. Now whenever I try to print I get the "E3" error indicating that there is a paper jam. However, there isn't and never was. I already turned off the machine and unplugged everything, then set it all back up again. I've poked around the machine a bit, but there isn't anything in the way. Opening and closing the cover doesn't reset it.

help! no paper jam but the printer keeps saying error 3. I have taken the thing apart and there is not a paper jam. there was a paper jam when the problem 1st occured but now there is not a jam and I still have E 3. what is the process to achieve a working printer again?? Please post for me or send to email.

The simple answer is, we havent fixed this problem!
I contacted Canon support, who responsed............
"Dear Customer,

Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding your Canon product.

Please be advised that if the MP 150 is displaying the letter E followed by number 3, this would indicate a paper jam.
However, if it is flashing E, then 3 and then another digit, an error requiring servicing might have occurred.
Turn OFF the machine, and unplug the power cord of the machine from the power supply. After a while, plug the power cord of the machine back in and turn ON the machine. If the same error occurs, contact a Canon service representative.

Please find below a list of authorized service centers for your device and some packaging instructions:

Packaging advice for returning products:
- Take note of your serial number
- Pack it very carefully and make sure it is covered by insurance
- Please ensure you enclose the following:
o The bill of sale and/or warranty details in case the product is under warranty
o Details of the fault/instructions for repair
o Your name and complete address details for the return of your product

Sorry I could help any further!

how can I fix the error code E27 Waste ink absorber full? Can I fix this myself or bring it to the service center if there is? thanks. - Anonymous
I also have alternaring E and 5 flashing. The belt is loose is this normal or could it be part of the problem. This occured when I changed ink cartridge. The carriage would not return to far left where I could remove so I forced it over. OOps.

I do not know for sure if you can help me with my canon 150, but I'm willing to give the manual a try.
You see everytime I go to print on it, it says paper jam and the paper would lean to one side. I sure hope the manual has an answer to this problem.
Please let me know how to receive this manual

thank you

What I found out through trail and error is that I had to have BOTH the black and the color ink cartridges in before it would go away. I had wanted to only use black ink.

Other than that, just make sure that ink cartridges have both been put in their place by being pushed in with a slight incline down towards you and then clicked into place by being made more horizontal by pushing up the end closest to you up.

That's what worked for me. Reading the manual did not help me with any more information than is given by the other posts to this site.

the printer uses all colours to print black normally.
somewhre in the software and tell it to print black only..or draft.

If you are getting the E3 error and there is NO REAL paper jam I just figured out the solution! It's a bit obscure but what you need to do is simulate a paper jam (it thinks there is one, so give it one!). I just shoved paper inside the printer (after lifting the hood up) so that a real paper jam would occur. When it starts trying to feed the paper through and its getting jammed lift the cover up and take the paper out. You'll then get a bunch of the lights flashing. Turn the printer off and then back on and you should be good to go.

Hope this helps.

My printer is indicating a paper jam (code 3) but I have threaded a card stock weight piece of paper through it 3 times and it still indicates E-3 when I ask it to print again. Also, the printer problem icon does not show up on my computer screen like it usually does. I have shut the computer down and the printer down and restarted several times but that doesn't seem to clear it either. Would love suggestions! many thanks, nanckers
