When you say double feed detection I'm assuming you mean it picks up more than one paper.

No, it only measure the lenght of the paper it knows if it's Letter Legal or ....etc, so if it's Letter and two sheets feed in but at different time (offset) then it will show a jam, if it picks up two at the same time with no difference in lenght then it will not show a jam.

Though it has a flexible papr handling capabilities you might want to consider the ff:

Stacker Capacity: 100 Sheets Document Feed: Automatic or Manual Document Size: Width: 2.2" - 10.1"
Length: 2.8" - 14.3" Thickness: Automatic: 0.06 - 0.15mm
Manual: 0.06mm - 0.20mm Feed Capacity: 100 Sheets
all scanner are equipped with double feed prevention, however it still the user responsibility to ensure that you follow manufacturer's advice, to prevent double feeding:

1- do not feed dog eared paper
2- moistured paper or with strong humid
3- concave paper
4- convex paper

Error message says a double paper feed has occured and it is not double feeding. Any suggestions?

This is a known problem with the Canon P-150. I have spend countless hours on the phone (our company deployed 150 of these) trying to resolve this. The best bet is to unplug the scanner, reboot the computer, and then try again. It is usually a memory allocation issue. If the issue persists. Uninstall the "canon p-150 driver" enter, msconfig, disable all non-microsoft services, reboot, install scanner, re-enable all services and then reboot. Canon knows of this error, and what I just mentioned is what their tech support recommends. There is also a known issue with symantec or norton products interfering with the twain software interface.

System error occurred! Please consult with a service representative.

That's indicates a double feed error from the ultra sonic sensor. The system has a transmitter on the top and a receiver on the bottom. When paper passes between them it can tell how many surfaces are present. If more than 2 (upper and lower surfaces) it will alert that a double feed has been detected. They are located just behind the brake roller on the bottom and behind the feed roller on the upper side. The look like a round white ceramic disc about 3/8 " in size and are mounted at an angle to the document path. Use air or a brush to make sure nothing like a hole punch or scrap of paper is blocking them. There are adjustments for them but you need the diagnostic utility software to so it.

Double printing on pixma mp470

Double printing or double feed??. Double printing means document printed in 2 copies. Double feed means printer feed double paper in one moment. For double printing,please check number of copy of document in printing preference properties.
Double feed occurs when pickup roller fails to pick the paper correctly. It's usually caused by shaft of paper pick up roller which is broken. You should replace drive assembly (include pick up roller) in this case
