Canon Pixma MG3250 Printer Error - P03

2
Found 24th Apr 2016
I have a printer that hasn't been turned on in ages, booted it up to print one sheet and it gives me an error P03. Has anyone experienced this before? I googed it and it stated a paper jam. The A4 plain paper light is also flashing and the Colour light is lit (but solid not blinking). The colour ink is also empty, is that the cause of error P03?

After 2 seconds of googling...

Error code 6000, P03 or E23 is a line feed error. It also should be flashing 3 times for this error on the on/off button.

This is a major fault. You may be able to fix it yourself if you are willing to take the machine apart and spend some time with it.

Looked at that, I did say I googled it... Don't know how to clean the printhead or the encoder strip and there is no coloured ink in the printer. Maybe thats the issue (P03)?
