My Canon MP460 is experiencing problems with its paper-feeding. Only the right side is being pulled down when the printing process begins, and the entire piece of paper folds, and jams. The things is pretty much brand-new--used only occasionally. I went through the "maintenance" options, and cleaned the heads and rollers, and still nothing. I've turned the thing "on" and "off," and have stared at it in silent anger quite a bit-- nothing seems to be working! If anyone has any ideas, please let me know!!
Call Canon. I'm on the hold with them at the moment...
Just finished speaking with them. They are sending me out a new printer, free of charge and including ups shipping label to send back to them. Sending the one I have back in the new box. Give them a call. They were really helpful and tool all of 5 minutes. Good luck.

1> Open the sheet feeder cover and pull out the paper support.
Set paper, aligning the right edge of the paper to the cover guide with the paper's print side facing up.
Pinch and slide the paper guide to the paper's left side.
Note: Make sure to set paper lengthwise. Setting Credit Card sized paper long-side down by mistake may cause a paper jam.
Pull down the paper output tray supporting with both hands.
Pull out the extension completely.
Ensure that the Power lamp and the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp light.
Note: If the Cassette lamp lights, press the Paper Feed switch to light the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp. If the Auto Sheet Feeder lamp does not light even after pressing the Paper Feed switch, Paper Source in the printer driver may be set to the setting other than Paper Feed Switch.
The sensor that detects paper (most cases just a small lever that is pushed up by paper in the tray) isn't engaging. It could be that the paper is not fully inserted, or sometimes in a paper jam, people pull the jammed page out backwards, bending or dislodging the lever. Very common in back-fed printers and shredders.
Sometimes just a visual inspection with a bright light source can show the problem. Be careful not to turn the printer on its side or upside down for any length of time. Inkjet printers usually use a sponge for excess ink discharged during the cleaning process and that can run out and seriously gum up the works, electronics, carpet, and whatever else you really don't want it to.
I had the same paper feed grabbing problem on pixma MP 610 printers - take a flashlight and look down into the feed rollers inside - deep - I found a paperclip in one and a hair clip in another - you need a pair of very fine pincer pliers to extract so you dont damage the roller assembly's made of plastic - and voila no more misfeeds and grabbing on the right side - hint - dont put anything on top of the printers because when you lift the scanner cover, it nicely slides anyting on top into the paper feed assembly and results in a jam
Something probably fell into that tiny pinch of an area where the paper goes. I have found everything from a Tostito crumb to a chip of drywall blocking my paper feed. Flip your machine over, poke it if you have to, and shake it around til the little bugger falls out.
