SOURCE: My MP470 Pixma won't feed paper, it pulls right

Based on instructions from your website I pushed a letter sized piece of thin cardboard backwards through the paper feed rollers then shook the printer while holding it upside down. A Q tip fell out, problem solved.

I also have a mp470. Try this before the driver download. Click Start, click all programs, select Canon utilities, select mp navigator, click on mp navigator again. On my pc this opens a window where I can select Scan/import from the platen or from a memory card. If this does not work here is a link to Canon to get your drivers. Note: turn off and uninstall your MP470 before installing the new drivers. Select your operating system from the list and select your desired drivers.

SOURCE: Canon pixma mp470 won't print, jamming paper

Hello there
You may not see a paper jam.

This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there.

And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.

Also clean The purge unit, called a spittoon assembly in an HP, Lexmark, Caonon and other inkjet printers, is where the print head assembly parks when not in use, also its other job is to clean and make sure the print head is clean and open for printing.

That is where you'll find the print head assembly parked on top of it.
It also has an electrical pump to milk the print heads and test for ink flow.

So clean all under where the heads are parked and on IP6600D models you can take out the heads just by clipping them out, and then clean well.


Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.

I have my printer connected to a Toshiba laptop running Windows Vista. my scanner is a Canon MP470 and I don't have the manual. can you tell me how to scan with this printer.


To scan an image in Windows Vista, do the following:
Go to Start > All Programs > Windows photo Gallery > Select the File Tab and select Import from Camera or Scanner.
It's a bit slow starting...but it will scan for you.

If you are still experiencing problems then download the latest drivers from canon here for your printer/scanner:
