It sounds like the pickup rollers are worn or damaged and would need to be replaced

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 :)

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.)

My Canon MP460 is feeding 3 to 4 pages when i try to print


Clean the rollers with a damp cloth and a dab of dish detergent. Rollers have paper residue on them and this makes them slip.

Cannon MP460 will feed paper through printer but not print


Check your printer sharing in the system preferences... make sure it's on.. then when you get the print window, look for your printer under shared printers... try it that way... worked for me on my wifi network here.

Naffed printer


Are there any small fragments of paper still in the paper path? I would inspect closely. Also on this printer, look at the back part of the printer and see if there is a little door that you can open to check and see if paper remains there. There is either paper there, or the paper feed sensor is blocked or damaged.
