Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I have an MP460 printer. Suddenly it won't print. When I try to print a document from Word, the printer acts like it's printing--goes through the motions, spits out a page, but nothing is on that page, nothing at all. Is there anything I can do?

  1. Open the front cover of the printer and remove both cartridges.
  2. Moisten a clean, lint-free cloth with water and gently wipe the gold nozzle area.

    Warning!
    Wipe the nozzles of the color cartridge in one direction so the colors do not mix.
  3. To dissolve dried ink, hold the damp cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds. Gently blot and wipe dry.
  4. Moisten another section of clean, lint-free cloth and gently wipe the gold contact area.



    Warning!
    Do not wipe the nozzles and contacts with the same section of cloth.
  5. To dissolve dried ink, hold the damp cloth against the nozzles for about three seconds. Gently blot and wipe dry. Let the gold-colored areas dry before you reinsert the cartridge into the printer.
  6. Reinsert the cartridge and repeat the nozzles test.

I have changed the colour ink on my canon mp460 but it still say empty


CL41, this is the one you are using for your cartridge.

Did you change your cartridge with brand new one or refilled one??

If you did with refilled one, the ink level won't go back with full.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This is the method how printer measures the ink level.

1. Each cartridge has a serial number.
2. As soon as installation in printer, printer recognizes the cartridge by serial #.
3. And the printer starts to count the printing document.
4. After reaching certain print counting, the ink level will show "low ink"

So my answer is even if you refilled your cartridge, the ink level won't change,
since printer cannot weight the cartridge or.....some other technology to measure each color ink level.

Thanks.

I wish to print in black only with mp460 cerjack@yahoo.com


Open the "Printer Driver Setup Window" and click Greyscale Printing. All documents will then print only in black, it will probably reset when the printer is switched off.

I have a document that wont delete thus stopping the printer.


I assume you are on Windows XP?

If so, click Start>Run
Type services.msc and hit return
In the services box look for Print Spooler
Right-click and restart the service - this should clear the job out of the queue.

THE TYPE SIZE IS TOO SMALL ON MY MP460 PRINTER.


Some fonts might not be available to use in the printer, make certain it's a true-type font you are using in your document.

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.

My printer has suddenly started printing terrible quality photos


I discovered I had switched photo paper in the process. The new paper obviously isn't compatible with this printer. I went and purchased more of my regular paper and the pictures began printing well again.
