Re: ip90 error message
Unplug the Machine for few minutes, say 30 minutes and then Turn it ON. Do you see the same Error Message?
If yes, then Try to Reseat the Cartridge and Make sure that the Cartridge you are using is Compatible.Then, follow the below Steps :-
1. Open the Printer Setup Utility 2. In the Apple menu select System Preferences 3. Open Print & Fax. 4. Make sure the correct printer is selected and, depending on OS version, click 'Open Print Queue...' or 'Print Queue...'. 5. Click the Utility icon. 6. Select the printer, then click 'Maintenance'. 7. Select 'Remaining ink level setting' from the drop down. 8. Click the 'Ink Counter Reset'. 9. Select the ink tank color you have just installed and click 'OK'. Note: The 'OK' button will be unavailable until a color has been selected. 10. Click 'Quit' to exit the BJ Printer Utility window.
Once you have done this, follow the steps below for retrieving updated ink levels:
1. After selecting 'Maintenance from the BJ Printer Utility window, select 'Ink Level Information' from the drop-down menu. 2. Click on 'Update' to check the current remaining ink level. 3. Click 'Quit' to exit the BJ Printer Utility.
If problem persist, you need to Replace Sensor which could cost you anywhere between $100 - $200 depending on the Center.

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.
There is a tiny switch where the ink cartridge goes at the bottom of the carriage assembly. If that switch is broken it will never see the ink. Unfortunately it's probably a shop repair to change the carriage or print engine.
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.
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.
