Question about Canon PIXMA iP90 Mobile Printer

Open Question

I think I have to replace my ip90 printhead. The colors print fine but no black ink. I'v had it almost three years and I LOVE it, so want to try and fix it. I can order a new print head, but want to find out how hard it is to replace...anyone know? ...and is it just one printhead for black and color or do I order separate heads? THANKS for your help.

SOURCE: Prints without any errors but no ink on the paper.

if you have new print head assembly and cartridges, and waited for flow, and the printer is MECHANICALLY sound (not dropped or G-force damaged), then all that is left is improper cartridge installation. You may not have the cartridges fully inserted/, or maybe they are not PROPERLY inserted. Look for a snap when in place (and no wiggle). I suspect this is your problem, because one symptom you mention, ink accumulation INSIDE the head/cartridge cradle, is VERY rare -unless the cartridge is inserted improperly. The cartridges/head assemblies have VERY good seals to prevent leakage. Unless the o-rings/seals are damaged, leakage outside the seal just does not happen at all, normally.

*New head/cartridge installs can take several hours -sometimes even a day in cold weather, for small iP90-like printers to saturate the heads -and print.

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.

SOURCE: my canon inkjet ip90 error color ink not installed but it is

A few basic causes. Most of them generic but should be able to help you out

1. The cartridges you bought were not original equipment ones (OEM)and many "clone" cartridges are known to have problems with the ink level chips

Take them back and get them replaced with a different brand

2. They are original cartridges but may still be faulty (rare but possible)

Take them back and get them replaced

3. Your print head is clogged or faulty

Run your printer through the head cleaning process a few times and see if it clears up.

4 your cartridges are out of alignment

run the cartridge alignment process

%. The head maybe just plain old pooched (not always repairable but on occasion...)

If you are filling them yourself then...

Cartridge ink levels are usually monitored by a small chip on the cartridge. If that cartridge is allowed to fall below 25% ink level most chips then become locked and not able to re-set.

For many cartridges you can buy a reset device to reset chips that have not become locked. Or you could buy empty cartridges that don't need resetting and that will always accept a self refill.

As for scanning if by that you mean the photocopy function then that could be linked to any of the above. But should you mean it wont scan to the computer then you should look at any hardware or driver issues that you may have and maybe also the source selection (usually TWAIN) is a good source selection.

My Cannon iP90 has not been used for about a year. I replaced the ink cartridges, performed a partial and full clean. Printed text is barely readable -- to light printing in black or in color.


The ink dries in the printhead and you need to replace it, QY6-0052-000 runs around $60.00 now, leaving it set is the roughest on these printheads.

Replaced black ink, now it only prints in color -


If cleaning doesn't help, you may need a shop, there's a firmware update that helps with black printhead cleaning, try a couple of deep cleans first, you can select just black deep cleaning.

Sounds like the printhead is plugged on the black side. A new printhead is #qy6-0052-000 around $40.00. That model also needs a firmware update to help it clean the printhead better.
