Question about Canon PIXMA iP90v Printer
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.

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.

when you open the top cover, the carriage unit will mvoe to the middle
of the unit. Once it is there hold the inks and move a bit to the left
so you can see a grey lever. then the printhead and the inks will come
up together. remove inks and replace head.
This should work for you
