Hi there For troubleshooting purposes, Perform the following:
1. Open the printer and remove all ink tanks.
2. Insert a single ink tank in the printer then close the cover.
3. Confirm whether the printer recognizes the installed tank properly. If it does, it will indicate it does not detect the other ink tanks, as they are not currently installed in the printer.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 with another ink tank.
5. If the printer at any time indicates two of the same ink tanks are installed, the cause will be the last tank installed. For example, if you inserted an ink tank earlier, and you later inserted another ink tank, and it said two of the same inks were installed, the cause of the issue is the last ink tank.

Go into printer maintenance and chose the Canon printer (assuming you have multiple printers). Once you chose the printer you can then perform maintenance and do cleaning and priming. Essentially when you click install new cartridge the system will essentially prime the printer so that when you print a document it will not have to prime itself. It should prime automatically once you close the lid and install the new cartridge.
According to Canon, the if several actions did not correct the issue, it was a hardware problem. They sent me the location of the closest repair shop. I spoke to them and to do the repair is $80 + parts which my research estimated at between $50-$80, for a total cost of $130-$160 plus 10% cook county Illinois sales tax. I have ordered a new updated printer for a total of $215 plus no tax or shipping charge. I'll be taking the old printer to a location for recycling. I can't believe how disposable this equipment has become. What a waste of raw materials and energy.
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.
yeah it sounds like a cartridge sensors are stuck or broken. i would say to replace the whole print unit. It will need a service support dealer to fit this part unless you can buy it and fir it yourself.
