How To Fix Canon Printer Error E03?

An error code never occurs without any intimation. If your Canon printer shows the error code E03 on its LCD screen, you can also notice the glowing orange LED. This indicates a paper jam on your Canon printer. When you clear the jammed paper from your printer, you can resolve the Canon printer error E03. Try out the troubleshooting techniques mentioned in this article and fix the issue quickly.

Paper Jam In The Paper Output Slot:

  • When there is a paper jam in the paper output slot, hold the jammed paper with both hands and pull it out. Make sure not to tear it; if you do so, you will face complications while removing the jammed paper.
  • If you find any jammed paper in the front tray, don’t take out anything. Because, if you pull the jammed sheets from the front tray, it may cause damage to the printer. In those instances, turn off your printer and turn it on again; then the jammed paper will be ejected automatically.
  • Once you have removed the jammed sheets from the output slot, take a paper stack and align the sheets. Now, load the paper into the paper tray and press the Stop/Reset button. Make sure that the print settings in the printer driver match the paper size you have loaded.
