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 :)

Paper jams in the feeder on the left side , tried to opentop cover does not allow me to open back. how do I GET THE ROLLER from curling the paper?


One reason for paper jams is due to some obstructions in the paper path. Remove the sheets of paper from the feeder. Grab a flashlight and look into the paper feeder. Clear the feeder from any foreign objects or debris that could cause "curling" of the paper. If feeder is clear, open the printer cover and ensure the paper path is clear in the cartridge area.
Unplug and replug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, try to print again. If problem continues, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Paper feeder stuck


If the paper feeder stuck, do the following:
  1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.
  2. If paper is stuck inside, open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper, including any torn pieces. Then close the printer cover.
  3. If paper remains near the sheet feeder, press the paper feed roller lever inside the paper feeder to release the jammed paper, then carefully pull it out.
  4. Load the paper correctly.
  5. Press the cp_button_14.gif stop button to resume printing.
  • If the printer continues to jam or misfeed paper, and you are certain that there are no foreign objects lodged down inside the paper feed area, your printer may require service. Please call Epson technical support for further assistance.

    Put new roll in printer and paper feeds through then goes back out again


    The printer should accept print paper ready for feed commands when computer sends jobs with clicks. A paper feeder tray may be clogged, attempt to open compartments to ascertain for misaligned or adjusted entrapment areas. Paper feeder adjustments that are tightened least allows feeder processing while loosened paper feeder clips allows several print papers at a time. Select the appropriate adjustment for the papers. Second, printers that run out of ink display sensitive malfunctions either as inability to feed paper when available. Ascertain that printer ink is available.

    Unable to print properly keeps printing on one line


    Sounds like there is something jammed in the paper feeder, or maby its the paper feeder itself. Check to see if the path the paper follows through the feeder is completely clear. Sometimes paper is left in the feeder from previous paper jams.
