Question about Canon PIXMA iP90 Mobile Printer
After taking all the protection covers off the appropriate things when it prints no ink is coming onto the paper. Have searched for any stray masking tape but none there. Why won't it print?
If you have not missed any CLEAR plastic film on cartridge seals or head assembly, and have the printer cartridges installed correctly (make sure there is a snap and then no "wiggle" afterwards) then you perhaps failed to clean the heads? New cartridges/heads must be "cleaned" or "deep cleaned" sometimes several times, before ink begins to penetrate the dry orifices. They are nearly microscopic, so this can take several tries. And cold weather can drastically increase the "wait" (hours needed for printer to be left alone, let ink flow down into dry/new heads). The latter requires patience, a commodity rare in "new purchases", I know, but "new toy anxiety" does not alter "physics".

Open the Dell 926's front cover with the power on and wait for the cartridge carriage to come to a stop. Remove the ink cartridges by pressing on the tabs at the top of each cartridge. Check the cartridges to make sure you have removed all of the blue protective plastic film. Look for the "Dell" logo stamped into the cartridges' lids to ensure they are genuine cartridges.
Clean the shiny metal portions of the ink cartridges with a damp microfiber cloth. Allow each cartridge to dry completely.
Clean out any paper, staples or other debris that you may be able to see, then reinsert the cartridges into their appropriate slots. Put the black ink cartridge into the left slot and the color cartridge into the right slot. Make sure both click back into place.
Close the Dell 926's front cover and turn off the printer. Unplug the power cord and USB cable from the printer for five seconds, then reconnect them.
If your Dell 926 fails to recognize the print cartridges after following the above instructions,
take it to a repair shop for servicing.
Good Luck and Happy Printing
