CanonPIXMA iP90 Color Ink Tank installation problem

I keep getting an error message that reads: "The following ink tank is not installed: Color Ink Tank. Install the ink tank properly and close the printer's cover. If you do not want to install the ink tank, click cancel."

The cartridge is installed properly. While traveling, I removed the ink cartridges for 3 weeks. Once I settled in Mexico, I tried to use the printer and kept getting the error message. I tried cleaning, deep cleaning, print head alignment, and installing new cartridges. I occasionally am able to print a test page, but the ink pattern is not good, even with a new cartridge. I have the exact same problem as posted by Javid on Sept 9 2008
Do you have any solution?

Yeah it sounds like a cartridge sensors are stuck or broken. i would say to replace the whole print unit. It will need a service support dealer to fit this part unless you can buy it and fir it yourself.

part number: QM2-2020-020

hope this helps

Hi there

For troubleshooting purposes,
Perform the following:

1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.

2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.

3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank
properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as
they are not currently installed in the printer.

4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.

5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are
installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if
you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink
tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of
the issue is the last ink tank.
