The printer has to be turned on to do this or it won't work. Lift up from the top half of the printer, the entire "shelf" where the buttons and lcd screen is. Once opened a blue bar will pop out to hold it open, kind of like the hood of a car. Once opened the cartridge should slide out all the way to the left from the right side of the printer.

Canon MP460- printer head slams end limits and alarms out

This could be indicative of serious ink issue. This could be as a result of a number of scenarios. But firstly, make sure you have replace he right cartridge.
i. Ink has developed incompatibility. Solution is try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished). If it stops blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again.
ii. The electronic panel on the cartridge that contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. Solution is try to clean with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also clean where the cartridge carrier where it makes contact.

I can't see how the 2 ink cartridges lock into place. Haven't used printer in 2 years, no cartridges currently in it so I can't see how they are supposed to snap in. Could it be that there is some other...

Hello Doug,

Go to this web page: Canon MP460 Support

If the Support & Service tab is not selected click on it. Type replace ink in the Search box and click Search. The second result should be "How do I replace ink cartridges?" and the third result should be "How do I install ink cartridges?" Click on either one for an animated tutorial for replacement. There are no other parts.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Canon MP460 ink cartridge not recognised

Perhaps the chips in the cartridges have failed? In which case you may need to replace them with brand new cartridges. If that doesn't work you might need to send it for repair as the cartridges might have damaged your machine.

Canon pixma mp460 all in one printer will not recognise ink cartr

You need to check that the canon label on top of the cartridge is near to the to the two lugs, there should be only a tiny gap. The label should not be placed at the bottom near the curved lug. If it is not in the right place I think it covers the chip that talks with the printer and thus sends an error message.

Canon mp460 not recognising replaced ink cartridge and cannot get rid of alarm code

hi guys,
BTW, did you refill the cartridge?. First, try to press START button (Black or Colour). Perform this procedure for each cartridge. If the problem still persist there some possibilities: cartridge error, carriage part or logic board is faulty. Then you need to replace faulty part.
