Hi. there is an alignment problem with my canon pixma ip90 printer. I haven't used it for years and finally decided to take it out. changed the ink cartridges, and the alignment problem started. Please...


Go to Control panel. Click on Printer and Faxes. Right click on your printer icon. Click on Properties on the drop don menu. In the properties click on Maintenance Tab. Click on print-head alignment on the drop down menu/tab. Check the printed page after the alignment is completed. If not OK carry it on again till you get the right print.

Changed cartridge--now paper gets stops by cartridge carrier. turned on and off, reinstalled cartridge, cleaned roller.


Press the OK button.
- If paper is being fed at error occurrence, the
error is indicated after the paper is ejected.
- If the error occurs, the print head alignment
values are not changed.
- After exit from the error by the OK button,
the automatic print head alignment will not
be re-done.
The error will occur when the print head
alignment pattern is not printed due to no ink
or non-ejection of ink.

While cleaning my print head on my canon pixma ip5000 I have a message saying ink absorbtion tank full, any ideas please


absorber needs to be replaced by a Canon tech, so that the error can be cleared in the diagnostic mode. The part is only about $10.00, but at least 1 hour labor.

Align printer


Go to "Printers and Faxes" in the start menu. Then right click on your printer and click on properties. Then click on the tab called Maintenance. There should be a button to align the print heads. Make sure the printer is on and paper is in the tray before trying to align the print heads.
