Canon iP90 printing with white/blank lines through type

Just put new color & B&W cartridges in & when I print black, type is broken every other line, or every line with blank in center of line, so type is unreadable.  Oddly, the color is fine, and an effective workaround is to print pages selecting dark gray or dark olive.  Black prints fine if it's just a header of a color page (missed blocking them when I was printing in color & noticed they were in black & clear).  
Put a second black ink cartridge in thinking it might be the cartridge, but same problem, type has white/blank lines.  What is the problem & how do I fix?

Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.

Remove the printer from control panel, under installed printers, then unplug the usb cable and reinstall the printer drivers using printer cd, or download from canon support website.

The problem is likely to come from your printer settings in your printer properties dialog box. Right-click the printer icon and select Properties. You will see within the dialog where to set the printer to print on black only and then appropriate. restart your pc and then try sending to printer again. Good luck

My printer Canon iP90 does not print black color. Advise what to do. Thanks.


chances are, the blank cartridge is empty and needs to be replaced. if it is new, make sure the plastic cover is removed from the cartridge, try to remove the ink cartridge and shake it a bit and connect it back, then check your printer settings to verify if it is set to print in blank ink/color.

Ip90 printer does not print blac on a test after


Sounds like the printhead is plugged on the black side. A new printhead is #qy6-0052-000 around $40.00. That model also needs a firmware update to help it clean the printhead better.

Wont print


I had this problem recently with my IP90. Both the black and color heads were clogged. After running the "canned" routines several times to clean the heads and deep clean the heads...still didn't help...here's what I did:

1. open the top lid to have the cartridges that are inserted in the print head move to the middle of the printer.
2. remove both cartridges
3. What is left there is the print head holder. Slightly move it to the right and gently lift the print head lock.
4. Grasp the print head and lift it out of the tank.
5. Have several paper towels hand and know that you will have color and bw ink on your fingers
6. Put the print head on the paper towel
7. Pour rubbing alcohol on the blk and color heads and let them sit of about 10-15 minutes.
8. after that dry the heads and re-insert them in the printer
9. I put new cartridges in the printer and ran clean and deep clean a few times.
10. My color and black and white print came right back!

Hope this helps.

My ip90 Canon printer only prints in purple


Try selecting an option in the printing properties to print in grayscale or black and white (you usually only have either one or the other). This will utilise ONLY the black cartridge, the color will remain dormant which should make your prints come out in black and white - if not, your black cartridge, or the space between the bottom of the black cartridge and the paper is contaminated with color ink. Good luck!
