This is likely to be ink that has found its way onto the rollers in the printer. Assuming this is the case it should work itself out eventually, but you could try wiping down any accessible rollers with tissue paper.

If you have any images of the prints I would be happy to take a look at them and see if I think something else could be the cause.

SOURCE: printer prints a line across the paper around three inch from the left hand side of the page.

Check your Toner Carts.
Is the line a certain color?
Black perhaps?

Lift the door of the toner cart.
If you see a streak on your toner drum, you will see a streak on your paperwork.

Look at your fuser as well.
Is there a problem with the big orange roller?
BEWARE! Don't touch the fuser roller its EXTREMELY HOT!
Let the printer cool down before inspecting.

SOURCE: Canon MP460 feeds the paper into the printer

I just got mine sorted out. It took two things:
a. luck
b. a lot of googling

Now,

The problem was 15 cents of the Euro in the following configuration: 1x10cent coin and 1x 5 cent coin...

The first thing I did was try to clean the bottom plate and the roller. I read somewhere that using some thick paper does the trick. I destroyed an office paper file (not very thick, but definately thicker than normal papers) - about 5 - 6 tries on the bottom plate clean and the roller clean, and a 5 cent coin appeared out of nowhere :)

I though that was it but I was very very wrong. At about the same time, I got the mother of all annoying canon error 5100. Although the heads moved at starting of the printer, when it came to print it had the error. I looked as much as I could and I was convinced (several times) that there was nothing in the printer. The heads moved fine, but the error was there. Rebooted the printer about 50 times, took power off etc, but nothing.

After a good 5' search with the flashlight (mobile phone) I spotted a small shine right where the little spongy thing is under where the heads rest far right when you look inside from the front of the printer. And voila, a 10 cent coin standing glorious in there and causing me all this trouble. I couldnt access it at all, but I was able to use the force of gravity (by inverting and giving a little jiggle to the printer) to get it to drop and finally got it out.

The printer works fine now, paper loads like a charm and even colour photo printing is fine.

Now I need to find a way to put back that little plate I took out (totally unecessary in the end...) and I have to sort out the removal of tons of ink from my hands.

To sum up:

It can be fixed. It's a pain in the ****. You might get richer (15cents for me!!!). You will have a full functioning MP460 printer again.

I hope this helps someone else as well :)

SOURCE: paper feed not working correctly

I just had the same problem, was about to give up, I even had started trying to take it apart to see what was causing this malfunction. I had first followed the user manual under "paper won't load," then I started reading about other people saying that it was something lodged in there, I didn't believe it could be it, but I tried shaking the printer upside down, still nothing, still not working, then the next day I flipped the printer upside down on my lap so that the cover opens facing you, I stuck my hand into where you load the paper, and I shook real hard side to side and up and down, when I lifted it, I saw a small thumb tack on my lap, I couldn't believe it, but it was true, because I had a couple papers tacked up above my printer, not anymore, my printer is working fine now, such a relief because I was not really wanting to buy a another printer right now, though the new lexmark although a bit pricey is enticing with their proclaimed $5 ink cartridges yielding up to 500 page average. Hope this helps you. By the way don't bother trying to take it apart, its a nightmare, I almost ended up damaging it by poking at it with a flat head screwdriver in a desperate attempt to fix it myself. I am lucky right now.

My bjc 1000 canon printer has a probem with the paper feed ? as the printer engaged to feed the paper the paper move to the right hand side and then gets screwed up .thanks


This is very simple. Pull out the screwed up paper back out very slowly. Look at its leading edge for an indent. Lay the paper back on the feeder. Now the indent will line up with the foreign object that has fallen into the printer. It may be a paper clip, staple or pin from a cork board behind the printer on the wall. Unfold a large paperclip and use this as a tool to retrieve the object. Always works.

Canon pixma mp495 rear tray rollers only pulls paper in on one side then it jams


When the paper does not feed straight, dirty or sticky rollers can cause it to jamb or crinkle, also failure to remove all traces of paper from a previous paper jamb will cause further paper jambs.
Check for tiny pieces of at the edges of the rollers, and remove these pieces of paper. The rollers may be dirty or sticky and causes the paper to not feed straight.
Try cleaning the rollers with methylated spirits.

My paper will not load it keeps jamming right away. I am unable to print anything, because it will not feed properly in to the printer. The paper is pulled in slightly on one side only; my right hand side...


Hi ,
This problem may be due to many reason . Paper feeder rolls problem mainly. These roller may be dirty . Clean this roller using moist cotton with Cleaning liquid such as spirit or petrol or very simply Nail polish remover. Clean these roller properly to remove dust or any other material stick on these roller. This will resolve the issue. If this problem still remain continue then this problem is due to alignment problem of the roller. Contact Printer specialist for proper alignment.

HI we have a Canon Pixma 780 printer. We changed where the printer takes the paper from when printing to the back of the machine. We want to change it back to taking the paper internally as when you print...


First thing to check is that the paper guide at the back is set. I've seen so many printers (of all makes) where the guide is not set at all.
Put a stack 20 to 30 sheets in the rear paper tray. Make sure that the stack is snug up against the right hand side of the feed tray (as you look at it from the front).
Then, make sure that paper guide - the little light grey plastic sticky-up bit at the left hand side of the feed tray - is moved up snug to the stack of paper. It should touch the paper but not squeeze it. Now try printing.
That guide is what makes the paper stay straight. If it does not touch the paper then the paper will go out of line.
This applies to all makes of printer and all types of printer.
