Canon MP460- printer head slams end limits and alarms out

This could be indicative of serious ink issue. This could be as a result of a number of scenarios. But firstly, make sure you have replace he right cartridge.
i. Ink has developed incompatibility. Solution is try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished). If it stops blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again.
ii. The electronic panel on the cartridge that contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning. Solution is try to clean with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also clean where the cartridge carrier where it makes contact.
