Re: canon mp460 instructions missed

There should be a user guide on the disc that came with the machine. There is also a PDF on this site for it.
On the cartridge replacement lift the top and wait till the cartridges come to the rest position, there should be a guide there, but if not pull them down and fit new ones - they should push up into place. Close the lid, the machine will then reset if you have done it right.
PS make certain you remove the orange film from the new carts!

Hi When I print out my photos to my MP460 printer the picture is darker than I see it on my PC screen. How can I lighten the picture

goto printer properties and select printing preference, from there you will be able to select the setting, under custom setting you will be able to adjust the brightness and contrast of the print out.

Can't print in color on my Canon printer

If you go here you can download or view a manual for your printer, with detailed instructions on changing the print cartridge settings in windows or mac.
If you go here, you'll be taken to the home support page for your printer, where you can enter a search for "print in color", and detailed instructions will follow.
You go to control panel>printers>print preferences> and uncheck the grayscale printing and set the color to auto.
Issue: Image prints black and white instead of color....See below.
Solution: Uncheck Grayscale Printing checkbox (Windows)

Unchecking Grayscale Printing Follow the steps below to change the Grayscale Printing option:
  1. On the Windows desktop, click 'Start', point to 'Settings', then click 'Printers' (Windows XP: On the Start menu, click 'Printers and Faxes').

    For Windows Vista: Click / Select 'Start' from the bottom left of the Windows screen, 'Control Panel', 'Hardware and Sound', and then click on 'Printers'. Note: If you are in 'Classic' view, Click 'Printers' directly from the 'Control Panel'.
  2. Windows 2000/XP/Vista: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Printing Preferences'. Windows 98/Me: Right-click the printer icon, then click 'Properties'.

  3. On the Main tab, click on the 'Grayscale Printing' check-box to remove the check-mark.

  4. Click the 'OK' button to save the setting.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
