Question about Canon PIXMA MP460 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

Yesterday I was trying to print a document. It said that paper was not fed so I added more paper to it. I did this and continued to try to print, unsuccessfully. I turns out that the back of the printer (part that brings the paper around) was open. So I closed it and tried to print. I still would not. The screen started to read Troubleshoot, see manual. Unable 34. I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. I don't have the computer manual. I really need these documents printed! Help!

It seems to be a problem with your print head. Try to clean the head if it's not a paper jam. See the error codes and the explanations here: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/us/us/en/faq/faq/000000/000100/000068/faq000168_003.html?reg=us&c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc240c_all

Solution for error code 005-196


This is essentially a paper size mismatch which causes a paper jam. Technically you submitted a print job for a paper size that did not match the paper which was fed into the printer. Example, your document is legal size but the printer pulled a letter-size paper. As it passes through internal sensors along the paper feed path, the paper size doesn't match the document size (created on the PC) and so the printer stops with the paper in its path posting the error and causing you to have to remove the paper from the jam area. The resolution is either provide the correct size paper based on the document settings in the PC application (may need to be fed in the printer's manual paper tray) or change the document size within the PC application to match the size of the paper being fed into the printer. (Paper size can also be modified in the printer settings on the PC.)

Why can't I print to my Ricoh Aficio SP C430DN from my Macbook Air?


You probably have a conflict between the paper size the machine knows is loaded and the document size being specified for printing on. Your Airbook is probably trying to send a document on a paper size the printer doesn't have. Net result is a document stored in the print queue that stops anything else being printed. Go full system reboot and clear out any and all waiting documents before trying again.

D7160 error messages showing put the papers facing down , its correct selection from our side but keeps showing the messges


Print a self-test report. See the section on how to use these solutions at the beginning of this document.
  • If the self-test report prints , try printing the original document again. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the self-test report prints, but the original document does not , continue to the next solution in this document.
  • If the self-test report does not print , try printing the report again. Listen for the rubber paper-pick rollers; you should be able to hear them rotating. Then, try slowly pushing the paper farther in until the roller engages to pick up the paper. Be careful not to push the paper in too far, which can cause paper jams.
    • If the self-test report does not print when slowly pushing the paper farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.
    • If the self-test report prints when slowly pushing the paper farther in , try printing the original document again. The paper might not have been loaded far enough into the product. If the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
    • If the paper only feeds through the product when you slowly push it farther in , repeat the previous steps to clean the rollers again. If the issue continues after repeated cleaning, skip the next solution in this document, and then service the product.

Printer won't print documents. Green light on


Hmmm, try feeding a sheet of paper into the manual feed slot... you might have inadvertantly sent a Manual feed job, and the printer is waiting for a sheet to be fed by you.

Paper feeds, but won't print. As far as I can tell there is ink.


Ensure the Paper Tray is Not Overfilled Each printer tray has a maximum capacity rating, and this rating is based on a specific paper weight and or thickness. Consequently, situations might arise in which the tray will not be able to accommodate the maximum number of sheets listed in the printer specifications. Verify that the paper is not packed too tightly in the paper tray Adjust the Printer Paper Guides Adjust the paper guides to fit the size paper being used (Figure 1). The guides should be close (1/16" or less) to the paper without touching, so that the paper stays properly aligned without continually rubbing the guides. Locate and Remove Any Obstructions Inside the Printer and Input Tray Open the front cover and make sure the kickstand (if there is one) is engaged. Locate and remove any obstructions within the printer, such as paper pieces, staples, tape, or other objects. Close the cover. Remove all paper from the input tray. Inspect the input tray for any obstructions. Remove any visible obstructions. Reinsert the paper. Determine if Multiple Sheets Are Fed at Once From the Paper Tray or ADF Determine if multiple sheets are fed at once from the the paper tray or Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Verify the print media installed is compatible with the printer Clean the ADF Paper Feed Roller Disconnect the AC power from the printer. Open the cover of the Automatic Document Feeder (Figure 1). Figure 1: Raise the Cover of the Automatic Document Feeder Using a damp paper towel, gently wipe the rubber roller to remove any ink or paper debris (Figure 2). Figure 2: Paper Feed Roller on the Automatic Document Feeder Close the cover and reconnect the power. Reseat the Dell Printer Power Adapter If your printer has a momentary loss of communication with your computer, it may be necessary to reset the printer to re-establish communication. You can reset a Dell? inkjet printer by unplugging the printer power cord from the electrical outlet and from the back of the printer for 10 seconds then reattaching the cord at both ends. If the printer queue icon is showing in your system tray (by your clock), you may have documents that are paused for printing. To resume printing a paused document: Double-click the printer queue icon to check document status of the active printer. Right-click on any documents that show Paused under Status, and then click Resume in the drop-down menu. Try a Different Type of Print Media Many image quality and paper feed issues are caused by the type of print media being used. Try a different type of print media that is specifically made for this printer. Replace the printer.

No paper fed


I'm guessing that little piece of plastic has something to do with the paper sensor.  You may want to open that section and set it back the way it was.
