Hi,

Power up your printer and open the cover to the print compartment. I removed the ink cartridges. The print head should have come with instructions for replacing the head. If you don't have these instructions, go to the Canon Start Here fold out sheet that came with your printer. It shows a grey locking lever in the front of the carriage for the print head. You should be able to pull up gently on the left side tab and release the top of the carriage and pull the old head out and replace with the new head. A tip I learned from a Canon repair guy: Your new print head is always tested at the factory - and it may have some residual ink in it. Mine did not work the first time. After several cleanings, using new ink cartidges, it worked and has been ever since. If you use your printer infrequently, run a test page through it every few weeks.
How do I install the print head and ink for Canon Pixma iP90?
To install the printhead for Canon Pixma ip90; Open the paper support and paper output slot cover of the printer. Then power the Canon Pixma printer on. Open the print head cover. The print head holder moves to the center. Pinch and lift the print head lock lever at the front of the print head holder. Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap that covers the bottom of the print head. Insert the print head into the print head holder so that the "^" mark faces the "V" mark. Lower and close the print head lock lever fully until you hear a click. Remove the black ink tank (BCI-15 Black) from its package. Hold the ink tank as shown in the illustration, and remove the orange protective cap, while lifting in the direction of the arrow. Set the Black ink tank at an angle in the back so that the ">" mark on the ink tank faces the "<" mark on the print head lock lever. Press down on the mark on the ink tank until you hear a click. Insert the color ink tank (BCI-16 Color) in the same way. Finally. Close the print head cover. The print head moves to the right.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

SOURCE: Print Head

After opening the purple cover, the printer head will move to the center. There should be a gray tab on the left side of the forward facing opening (about the middle of lower cartridge). Gently push printer head to the right (1/4 to 1/2 inch) and a gray slanted tab will appear from behind housing. lift this tab and a metal lock will pop up. Tilt lock back and the printer head should be lying loose in its cradle.

The printer should be on,remove the paper from the printer(if there is any),press and hold the down arrow/cancel button, release the button when the power light blinks 3 times ... The printer will rollers will automatically revolce and clear all the jams.. When the power light is green then repeat the same step 3-4 times.. To confirm the paper jam is cleared then feed 8 1/2 * 11 paper in the printer and again press the down arrow button and release the button once the power light bliks for 3 times and then release the button. If the printer feeds properly it confirms the hardware of the printer is fine.
Software issue: Go to printer and faxes in computer and check the icon. If it says.. 0 paper jam then, delete the icon and chcek in the device manager if there is an entry of usb printing support under Universal Serial Bus controller .. if the entry is there then delete it. Insert the printer cd in the computer and unplug and replug the usb cable from the printer. If the setup screen comes up then exit out of it and the printer drivers will get updated. After that tried to print another tets page from the computer. It will definately print. Thank you.

Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.

My new canon ip90 printer won't print anything goes through all the motions but no ink comes out. brand new cartridges in it?


Is the shipping cover still on the printhead? If it has been removed, wipe the printhead with a damp paper towel to see if the head is plugged. If ink is present on the towel, do a print head clean from the maintenance menu.

Canon Pixma iP90 - Jagged text and lines


The printer has a plastic band that runs from one side to the other. The print head has a sensor that passes over it each time it moves. The band is a little transparent and appears to have vertical lines in it. That needs to be cleaned. 
  1. Remove power from the printer, 
  2. Wipe it clean, 
  3. Move the head manually to other side to clean the other areas.
Hope this helps.

Figuring how to install new print head in my Canon iP90 printer


The important point is moving the head to the left, or sliding it left or right, so you can actually SEE the LEVER. It is hidden otherwise and what appears to be the obvious lever on the top is the wrong lever. If you have pressed the correct lever the unit removes very easily. If it is hard and you cannot make progress chances are you have not found the correct LEVER!

Print head for canon ip90


There is a very easy fix for a Canon IP90 not printing either color or black. I just fixed mine a few minutes ago. Go to the local Dollar store and buy some nail polish remover. Then open up the printer, remove the ink cartridge(s) and put a few drops of nail polish remover in the hole that receives the ink. Works like a charm and fixed mine in just minutes. After inserting the polish remover (actually just Acetone with some glycerin) reinsert the ink cartridge and do a deep clean using the Canon utility from the Control Panel under "Printers > Properties > Maintenance (right click on the Printer icon in Control Panel to start)." You can also simply use acetone. Another trick is to remove the print head which holds the ink cartridges (although I could not figure out how to do this but it's doable) then put a paper towel soaked with distilled water (tap water probably OK) in the microwave, heat the towel and quickly put the print head on the hot paper towel. As a last resort simply order a new print head from the Internet and replace the print head. I would presume it would come with instructions for removing the old print head.
