Question about Printers & Copiers

My Canon Pixma ip90 printer is not printing much color and not any yellow at all. I've ran three print head cleaner sessions and it hasn't improved any. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Mike Blum mikelblum@gmail.com

Clean dell a940 cartidges and print head


Blocked print head nozzles
You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

We are trying to get our iP90 printer to print. We have cleaned the print head, replaced both black & color ink. We have done a deep cleaning several times, cleaned with alchol & cotton q-tip....


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

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.

Message saying color ink cartridge not installed


This is a common problem with the Canon IP90 printer. The printer keeps saying color cartridge not installed. The problem is caused by the small micro switch under the color tank. This problem is not common with new IP90 printers because ink has not had enough time to build up under the micro switch which will insulate the contacts. To cure this problem is very simple, unless you have screwed around the print head and busted the little micro switch clip off.then you really have a problem........
So if everything is still there and you haven't messed around to much.here is what the fix is.
First get a can of CRC Electronic cleaner for sensitive electronic equipment ,the quick drying formula.CRC#05102. This cleaner is safe and harmless to plastics. Do not use electricial contact cleaner it will disolve plastic.

First center the cartridge carrier,shut off power . Carrier should stay to center. Remove black and color tanks. In front of the carrier is a small print head button , push it in and up and the arm that holds the head in will release. Move the small metal arm up and remove the print head.

This will give you a clear view of the small micro switch. Using a long wooden tooth pick pack small pieces of paper towel under and around the micro switch and carriage.

The can of cleaner should have a long plastic tube nozzle so attach this to the spray head.
Point the spray tube right near the micro switch and spray a couple of short bursts . You will notice a lot of ink on the towel. Change the pieces of towel out ,because they will be wet with cleaner and ink. Two or three times is all that is required. Assemble and try it.

Canon iP90 will not print black text - it will print any other color text. When I print a test page - it only prints the small flag top left page. I have done a deep cleaning - three times. I have replaced...


hi karen,
If you are sure that the ink is present, there two other possibilities: Purge unit work properly so the ink cannot flow down from ink tank or Logic board of you printer is faulty.
