SOURCE: paper feed problems hp PSC 1510
1. Turn the printer off and open the access cover.
2. Look for any obstructions in the paper path and remove them if necessary. (It is possible to move the carrier assembly with the power off.)
3. Turn the printer on, load some paper, and press the Form Feed button.
4. Watch the paper as it feeds through and try to determine where the jam is occurring.
5. Check to see if all the rollers are turning.
If all the rollers are turning, there may be something in the feed path that you can't see. Go to step 6.
If not, there is probably a feed motor or a gear problem and the printer may require service.
6. If the paper is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot.
7. Turn the printer off.
8. Take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the manual feed slot until it comes right through the printer to the back of the exit rollers.
9. Move it up and down first, and then slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate, this may work it loose.

I just got mine sorted out. It took two things:
b. a lot of googling
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 :)

two things I would do, first carefully flip the printer upside down, (anything that looks like it can flap open, tape it well), and jiggle it slightly and see if anything falls out.
second, i would clean the pickup roller with an alcoholic pad or swab, if its not easily accessible, you will probably need to take the upper an middle casing off, which I dont recommend.
