Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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.

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

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