Canon MP460 feeds the paper into the printer crooked. Seems to be feeding right side in, while left side of paper remains stable.

    I've been having the same problem with mine. I've tried loading less paper, more paper, loading it different ways, and it still eats it crooked.

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 :)

I was having the same problem, and lo and behold, I found a metal button from a suit jacket in my printer. It just took a few seconds of shaking to get out and now my printer works fine. Thanks for the help!

My X2250 will not feed the single sheet of paper evenly. When looking at the...


Printer would not feed paper no matter how many sheets were in the bin or how clean the printer. I even cleaned the roller. The issue was I just needed a little more tension on the roller that pulled the paper in.

I removed the rear access door (see manual). Off to the left near the feeder roller you will see a spring. What I did is mover the spring to the END of the plastic arm that it is attached to (if it is missing ..you have a bigger problem). If you have moved your printer around a bit, the spring may have slipped down on to the arm and is no longer sitting at the end. This will extend the spring another 1/16 of an inch ...and that is all all it took for me. My printer will now feed a single sheet of paper with no issues. BTW: I put a drop of glue on it after so it would not slip off.

It appears that the paper is not feeding on one side. The paper will begin to feed and then turn crooked.


First make sure that the left hand paper guide is up tight against the stack of paper in the feed tray.
If it is and the paper is still skewing then something is obstructing the path. This could be an internal part that has come loose, a piece of torn paper or a foreign object like a paperclip or wasp. Use a torch and peer down the feed chute and then look inside , examine the paper path carefully.
For info, the paper only feeds from the right side (as you look at the front of the printer)

Paper roller on the left side of printer will not feed the paper


Hi,
Remove the jammed paper. Unplug the printer from the mains and PC. Inspect the rollers, etc for tiny paper piece(s) that may be stuck, or other debris. Try to clean rollers and make sure they are dry.
Keep printer unplugged for about 2 minutes and replug and try a test print.
Also make sure that you have waited long enough for the printer to heat up before giving a print job.
Finally, it could be an issue with the paper sensor. If this is the case, you will probably have to take the printer in for servicing..

Hope that helps!

Mp460 feeds more than one pages


Hi ...

There is no hardware fault in this perticular situation. This happens because of paper loaded. There are 2 possible resolution to this problem:

I) Fan paper prior to inserting it into the MP460

  1. Remove paper from the ASF.

  2. Open the paper output tray. (See <2> in Figure 1 below.)

  3. Set the paper thickness lever according to the media being used. (See <3> in Figure 1 below.)

    Note: For paper thickness lever settings, use the following setings for the media type being used: Right side: Envelopes / T-Shirt transfers. Left side: All other media types.

    * Figure 1

  4. Fan out the sheets of paper so that they do not stick together.

  5. Load paper in the auto sheet feeder with the paper's print side facing up. (See <1> in Figure 2 below.)

  6. Align paper to the right edge of the auto sheet feeder. (See <2> in Figure 2 below.)

  7. Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side. (See <3> in Figure 2 below.)

Paper feeds crooked into the printer


Check the adjustments for the paper your using. Open the printer and look on the rollers you'll probably find paper or an obstruction clear it and also clean then rubber moving parts with isopropyl alcohol to give them their grip back.
