Car,
Remove the print head and cartridges.
Take 1 ounce ammonia to 7 ounces of hot tap water ,mix in bowl and let the head set in it for 30 minutes.
Ink ports in the solution.
Thoroughly dry the head and re-insert.
Do a deep clean and try again.
If that does not work remove head and spray some WD40 on the head eject nozzles.(head upside down)
Be careful not to get the WD on any rubber part.

SOURCE: black has stopped altogether

He says he replaced the cartridge twice. Possibly (most likely if it is an iP90 since after-market versions are rare) these WERE the OEM Canon cartridges! Therefore, the head assembly (a separate component, that holds the iP90 cartridges) is obviously the problem. Do this: I have written this for the Canon iP90. Generally, this will work for any printer that has print heads that are SEPARATE from ink cartridges. For example, older B/W BJ2 family Canon/Apple StyleWriter printers have ink cartridges that INCORPORATE the print head into the cartridge -so this will NOT work on them! (although I once succeeded in cleaning the heads, it was VERY messy and took several days, then required another trick thereafter). Also be aware that this is for B/W or Color printers that use water vehicle (water based) inks only (most are water-based, but some printer inks are alcohol, oil or acetone based). The appropriate vehicle/solvent must be used, and the WRONG solvent can damage heads! (for example, using water, alcohol or acetone for cleaning oil based ink cartridges can be disastrous). RESEARCH your ink "base" first, if you do not know what it is! iP90 Head Cleaning by DanaSaur: 1 These ink cartridges are grey. Remove both cartridges. 2 Now remove the head assembly that held the cartridges (black, with 3 small round seals and one large seal) (consult manual, in NEW setup sections, if still uncertain how). DO NOT TOUCH ANY PART OF THE SMALL WHITE PAD BENEATH THE ASSEMBLY. 3 Now take this whole assembly ONLY, (it is 4.5cmx5cm, 1.5inx2.0in) and drop it into a small container of warm water. DEFINE WARM: Think of a range between a "baby bottle" (slightly above body temp) up to any temp that does NOT cause pain/discomfort to the underside of your wrist!) Let it soak 30 minutes. 4 Take a NEW, CLEAN, SOFT toothbrush, dip it in warm water, and GENTLY clean the small components on the white pad below, AND the 4 seals inside the head assembly. 5 Rinse everything (even toothbrush) in warm water, under a faucet, until all items are clean (no color appears in water). 6 Repeat steps 3, 4 and 5 above (but can use the same toothbrush) This time though, leave assembly in water 2-3 hours, keeping it warm (replace water every 20 minutes or so). 7 Rinse everything again, as in 5 above, gently tap off excess water (DO NOT TAP WHITE PAD FLAT AGAINST ANYTHING -ONLY CORNERS) 8 Set assembly white side down, yet tilted on a corner with a pen or clean 0.5-1cm object, on a smooth, clean surface in a closet (or other isolated environment, to avoid dust/lint etc). 9 Set a small piece of tissue wadded up and soaked with water, in the same closet (but not too close to head assembly). This will be your "advanced, high-tech, moisture level gauge" :) 9. Allow the tissue to COMPLETELY DRY... even to its core! When this has happened (may take several hours -or day in colder weather) the head assembly is dry enough to re-install in the printer. 10 Install cartridges (may be best for you to buy new ones, sorry). Let them gravity flow with natural capillary attraction for a few hours (or allow a day if room is cool/cold). Always keep printer lid CLOSED to avoid drying out ink/clogging heads or capturing dust/lint from atmosphere. 11 run head cleaning process as many times as it takes to re-saturate heads with ink. 12. Now, after doing all these steps faithfully, if printer has not started working, you let the heads dry out way too long, or contaminated them with touch (skin oil) or the wrong solvents. You will need to BUY a new head assembly. Bend over bud, this is what gets Canon accountants ****! This is why they offer cheap printers -to extort obscene amounts of money when you need parts :)

The printhead is clogged.

See the following guide:

Canon iP3000/4000/5000 Printhead Cleaning Guide

If it does not work, replace the printhead: Genuine Canon Print Heads

SOURCE: After deep cleaning the print heads, it will only print one page

This sounds like the print head alignment is not stabilized and may indicate you need a new print head ($$$). Try looking in the Service Manual.

My mp610 Canon printer will no longer print email documents (black)- leaves page blank, except for email address (in blue print)., But printer will still print satisfactory color pictures (Photos). B


Get the latest driver from Canon's web site. Then uninstall the printer. Remove the driver from your computer. Use regedit to remove any traces of your printer from your registry. Install the new driver. That should do it.

How can I make my printer print only in black also print what I want on a page


Printing in black is no problem.

Depending on what Operating System you are using - you will need to select print in gray scale in the printing preferences menu.

Normally the printer will only print what is on the page as seen in the output of the application. You can select the pages you want to print by selecting either current page or page numbers, eg, 1-5 or 1, 2, 4 etc.

If you want to print only what you want on a page then you will need to cut and paste the bits into a new MS word document (provided the output of the application allows cut and paste). You can do this with MSWord pages and IE and PDF pages to an extent.

Color printing, not so colorful. Even with new cartridges


Your model has some print quality pages built in to help diagnose and solve print problems.

1) Press <Menu>
2) Press <Down> button to highlight "Diagnostics"
3) Press the <checkmark>
4) Press <Down> button to highlight "PQ Troubleshooting"
5) Press <checkmark> to print the pages

If you see print-quality defects on the print-quality-troubleshooting pages, calibrate the printer. To calibrate the printer (optimize print quality):

1) Press <Menu>
2) Press <Down> button to highlight "Configure Device"
3) Press <checkmark>
4) Press <Down> button to highlight "Print Quality"
5) Press <checkmark>
6) Press <Down> to highlight "Full Calibrate Now"
7) Press <Checkmark>

I hope this helps!

In the printing preferences you need to select Black and white.

1. open the document you want to print
2. click file
3. click print
4. select printer from list, then click on preferences
5. look around the pages.

In Color tab I found a print in Grayscale - this setting will print the document in black and white colors, the pages may be diffrent on diffrent printers. look for black and white setting or Grayscale.

picture: printing preferences, color page on a hp printer, select grayscale with black cartridge only.

I bought two new cartridges for my printer but the printer prints funny. there is no color and the black appears faded. my printer is about 2 years old. have any ideals?


Sounds like the jets may be clogged. You may have to run multiple times till they are good. Print a test after each clean and see if that helps.  You can use the operator panel or the Lexmark X5100 Series Solution Center to clean the nozzles. Using the operator panel 1 Load paper in the All-In-One. For help, see page 16. 2 Press Options until Cartridges appears on the display. 3 Press the right arrow until Clean appears on the display. 4 Press Select. A nozzle page prints forcing ink through the nozzles to clean the clogged nozzles. 5 Print your document again to verify your print quality has improved. 6 To further improve print quality, try wiping the print cartridge nozzles and contacts (see page 44), and then print your document again. 7 If print quality has not improved, try cleaning the print cartridge nozzles up to two more times. you can get the owners manual on line at this address:  http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/x5150/eng/ug.pdf

please rate this and good luck.

Check page setup and ensure page size for document same as page size for printer.
Check printer not set to only print current page.

Printer Ignoring Black Text


Assuming the print tests you've done so far are built into the printer: Could be worth printing a test page from the printer properties box (which you can get in XP from the START menu, Settings, Printers & Faxes, then Right click on the printer you want and select Properties from the dropdown. If the test page is OK, I'd try printing from a few different applications to see if that narrows the problem down. If the test page has the same problem, then you might try reinstalling the printer driver. A.
