I have the printer. You need to scan through your image software on your desktop. The button on the scanner does not function.

With your image software, there should be an "Import from Camera" and "Import from Scanner." Pick the latter, and it will prompt you through the process.

Took quite awhile to figure that out.

MP470, Paper jam on one side

I have just bought a new Canon Pixma MP470 after the serious adverts of it in the web. I only made 30 copies with it and paper started. Every time I give it a command to print or copy, the paper instead of going in evenly slides to one side where there is a roller and jams. The machine goes on as if printing job is on whereas it is not. I cannot do anything at the moment. I am so frustrated because I have imported this from America to Italy and now it cannot work. Any help out there? I wll be deeply grateful.

There is something jammed in there....shake it upside down first.....if nothing then revese feed a paper through it manually......take left side off hold paper in front and roll wheel on the left side so the paper feeds back into the machine,,,,,,open top to see in there and when paper feeds under white rollers make sure it dosent jam where wite rollers are about an inch from the right there is a small rectangle hole with a black plastic piece in there pry it up carfullywith a paper clip and feed paper with the wheel under it at that point the paper push out a bobby pin into my back tray,,,,, now everything works great.......keep checking i didn't believe something was there either but there was..... also if your paper first starts to feed and stops pull out the paper and check for a bend or crinp in it mine kept doing that and that is exactly where the pin finally came out.....

Canon MP470 keeps saying "paper jammed"

I have a Canon Pixma MP470 printer. It keeps saying "Paper output slot: the paper is jammed. Clear the paper and press OK." I took out the jammed paper, however it still keeps telling me to clear the paper. I've restarted the printer numerous times, checked over and over again for something else jammed, even air dusted the ******. It still keeps telling me to clear the paper. What do I do?

I had the same problem for DAYS and there was no paper jammed at all. I went to the cannon site as a last ditch effort & the solution below fixed it. Just clean the rollers and the link tells you how. Good luck!

Canon MP470: "Print Head is not installed. Install Print Head"

I have the Canon color and black ink cartridges, and had them refilled. Was working great, but all of sudden I get a message on the LCD that says print head not installed. Won't let me scan, copy, or do anything. Unplugged, removed and re-installed print heads...nothing working

Any help would be great!

Some printer brands have a cute scheme that reads a "new" cartridge as good, but the refilled one has a small fuse link that is burned out by the printer. Try factory new cartridges. Unplug the printer power for a bit to reset the printer.

printer error on a canon mp 470

My MP470 printer is around a year old. We replaced the ink cartridges with black 40 and colour 41 a few months ago, we used the printer a few times, then an error came up on the LCD screen
U051 Printhead is not installed. Install the printhead. It has now sat around for about 2 months. The printer is also telling us that it doesn't recognise the colour ink. The cartridge is in correctly.
Can you please tell me whether it is worth fixing, I paid $114 for it, am I better off buying a new one.

Hello there
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.

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.
