I'm trying to print wedding invitations on my Canon MP460. I'm using a cardstock thickness of paper and have set the ink levels for "Other Photo Paper" on my Mac. The paper has been going through...


Sounds like the ink isn't having time to dry and is rubbing along paper.

Paper may be too thick. If it prints OK on normal paper (test first) but not on thick card, then it doesn't support thick paper settings.

Got a Canon i850s used with no instructions. How do I load paper?


You have to open the front cover and move the paper thickness lever at the top of the print head holder to the left position, close the cover. Pull out the paper rest and the output tray and load the paper, aligning it with the right side of the sheet feeder. Press the paper guide and slide it against the left side of the stack of paper and you're done!

I have problems aligning printer heads on my Canon i850. I have clean the printer heads, replaced cartdridges, re-aligned them, but I still get lines through the printed material (phots mostly). No...


Please try to uninstall and reinstall your printer.

Clean your printer heads.

Perform a hard reset to your printer.

Print a test page.

Try using a different bond paper.

Make sure you are using original canon cartridge

If still you get an error. Replace your printer heads.

I get a series of blinking orange lights and a green pause.


Hi Mike, the paper feed switch doesn't feed paper... it switches the paper source from the top feeder to the bottom tray. Do you have paper in both? How many times does the orange light flash in between the greens? That tells the error.

I keep getting a sequence of orange and green light flashes. The paper won't feed and the message i get is " paper thickness lever problem" HELP!


in the side where you load the paper you can locate a lever that is lifted when you place the paper. just try to get hold of it. move it in either directions and then restart your printer without paper.
and once again with paper. everything will be fine

Will not print and keep getting paper thickness error


Did you try moving the paper thickness lever (blue lever on top of the print cartridge holder)? It should be all the way to the left when you start--if it needs to be adjusted the printer message will let you know.

Failed to print


At the head you said 'paper thickness position'and then you seems to have ignored that and did all the other things. Is there an adjustment for paper thickness, a lever perhaps. It does seem to be with the paper feed or paper presence detection. Take a look around, is there something stuck in the paper feed track? Can you have pass a piece of paper through without it rucking up? Do these things see what happens Take a look also at www.fixyourownprinter.com
