    Tried the link you gave me and worked through all the steps. Ended with the one that says your printer may need repair. Hard to believe from just a simple paper jam. Printer worked fine 5 seconds before the jam. Any other suggestions?

After clearing a paper jam on my MP460, I get another error message, 'the paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press [ok]', which can't be removed. Pressing [ok] has no effect and I can't get into the main...


A few possible solutions:

- Open the top of the printer and look along the print path for pieces of paper.
- Press the reset button.
- Turn off the printer first and then unplug it. Plug it back in and turn it on. Wait for it to start up.

Good luck!

Alarm is flashing error code 5100 and won't let me print anything


Error 5100 is Carriage error.Possible problems in:
- Carriage unit
- Timing **** strip film
- Logic board assembly
- Carriage motor
First, make sure there is no paper jam anywhere in the machine.. look inside, rear, where the paper tray (output) is, etc to see if you find any shreds or torn paper that may have gotten stuck and you didn't see.Look carefully in the zone of Purge unit, using flashlight in the right side on printer.If this not help your printer need service.

Have an MP460 and cleared a paper jam and stop everything from printing. All the time power on and no more...


Will it not turn on? Does it turn on and not print? Is there an error that shows up on the LCD on the printer?

If you have removed all of the paper from the jam, turn the printer off and back on.

If you cannot remove the paper, turning it off and back on is supposed to eject it (at least according to the manual).

I have got error code 5100


5100 error code means there is somekind of obstruction inside the printer thats interfering with the printing process. You have to check the inside the printer especially near the gears and under the rollers. The obstruction can be anything like a small piece of paper, a paper clip, ball pin etc., check thoroughly and you will find it. Post back if you need more help.

Lift up below the display screen.The printer top will raise up and a arm will lock into place.Make sure the ink cartriages are firmly in place,snaped into position,sitting flat.Lift arm out of the way and close the lid.Worked for me ,good luck.

Mp460 printer


I can only see a 5100 code is that what you mean?
If it is here's the answer: Movement of the FINE Cartridge Holder is blocked.
Clear the paper jam or foreign object that is preventing the FINE Cartridge Holder from moving, cancel printing from your computer, then turn OFF the machine and turn it back ON again.

Pixma mp460 error 5100


this error is an error within the printer. This error means that there is something obstructing the printing process. Check inside your printer through the gears that you can see under the lid. There should be something obstructing the gears such as dirt or in my case popcorn. There was even some paper caught underneath the rollers that I had to jiggle around to even see. Check VERY thoroughly.
