Question about Canon PIXMA MP460 All-In-One InkJet Printer
It did not work, when I start, it stop with this message error code
1.First I recommend, resetting your printer. Turn it off and unplug it. Wait at least 10 seconds, plug it back in, and turn it on.
2. Next, if you feel comfortable trying to fix the printer on your own, you can follow these instructions after the phone number. If not, I recommend calling Canon and asking them to repair it for you. You can reach Canon support by calling 1 (800) 828-4040 during regular business hours (currently Monday-Friday 10:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. EST, excluding holidays).:
I found the the purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) was not lubricated well enough from factory. If you lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps) the mechanism can now slide more freely, and the unit can park the head properly without giving you the dreaded head homing error 5100 (or E-2-2 on the LCD display) Keep in mind that this repair will probably require you to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism. There are two screws behind the printer, and two in front for each corrosponding side panel (the front screws are behind the grey front panel of the printer - open the top cover to see the clips which hold the front cover on)
