Question about Canon PIXMA iP90 InkJet Printer
The black ink started fading 2 days ago. So I cleaned and deep cleaned but the problem just got worse to the point where it does not print in black anyone. I even changed out the print cartridge TWICE thinking I have bad cartridges, but it did not solve the problem.
Can someone please help?
Clean the printhead
Posted on Apr 15, 2009
OK I had the same problem in 3 IP90 printers. Every time I tried to clean the black head (it's the single long one looking at it from the bottom). It would not print ever again. I used alcohol to clean them and they would just stop. So after it was not operating I tried something different. I wet a Que tip with hot water and wiped and pushed down hard on the black head. Left it wet. Replaced the black cartridge and put it back in the printer wet. I printed a black page and expected it not to work. Well to my surprise it now prints as good as it did when new. So I pulled out the other 2 printers I had the same problem with and yep they are all printing not just good put perfect. So my procedure is first clean head well with alcohol then try to print a page it will not print anything. Then remove head again. tale to bathroom wet que tip with hot water and clean it again this time with a little pressure. The que tip will get solid black. Then leaving the head wet. put back in printer replace black cartridge and print an all black printed page. You will be amazed. 2 years I have tried to figure these out and now I have!!
