SOURCE: paper jam in Canon MP460 printer

I was having the same problem. Talk about frustrating. Sometimes up to 45 min of dicking around to get it to print one page. Here is what I did. And I know it sounds crazy but it worked for me....

SOLUTIONL: Cancel any currently pending print jobs. Press the settings button. Arrow down below the paper type setting (currently set to "Plain paper") and change the speed from "Standard" to "Fast". This did the trick for me and now I am feeding paper and printing like a mad man.

It really doesn't make complete sense to me why this would fix the problem and why so many people are having the same problem... but my rationale is as follows.... This is happening to many people ... not merely an isolated incident... so most likely this is an engineering defect. Something in the way they designed and built this thing is less than perfect. I am guessing that somewhere within the firmware that runs this printer there is a section that says start counting the number of milliseconds from the time the paper feed is started until it is place to begin printing (probably a sensor somewhere), and if too much time has passed then there must have been a paper jam. This allotment of time may have been set to a very small window of time...(tighter tolerances usually means better quality, but not in this instance.) So by setting the speed to "Fast" we are able to get the paper in position before the window of time expires.

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 :)

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.)

After you load paper printer says no paper loaded. It catches paper but does not send it through.


YOU HAVE FAN THE PAPER BOTH ENDS LONG WAYS FAN THE PAPER, WIDE OR SIDE OF THE PAPER NEEDS TO BE FANED,

ASSIST THE PAPER INTO THE FEEDER MAKE SURE THERE IN NO FORIEGN OBJECT IN THE FEEDING AREA MAYBE PENCIL OR PEN FELL DOWN THERE,

STICK YOUR HAND BEHIND THE PAPER AND PUSH THE PAPER FORWARD UNTIL PAPER STARTS TO FEED YOU HAVE TO DO EVERY TIME YOU LOAD NEW PAPER UNLESS YOU PLACE NEW PAPER BEFORE IT RUNS OUT OF PAPER, THIS IS A PICKUP ISSUE FOR THE PRINTER,

Paper jam


Did you look both down the paer feeder, and then nside the unit really closely, in roller, and near cartiridge carriage. Jams can be so very small you can miss them.
