Black Ink won't print on my Cannon ip90 Printer

I have been having problems with the black ink not printing on the printer mentioned in subject line. I have tried every avenue available from troubleshooting, to maintenance to even replacing the brand new cartridge just in case the other was a dry one even though brand new.

Please tell me what i need to do and know that I will be so grateful as this has been a four hour ordeal. In addition my HP 7200 series does not print for other reasons, it says usb not recognized or one excuse after the other. I have 30 GB of free space so dont think this is a problem.
Thanks a million for any assistance or direction you may be able to give.

    I was not able to select the correct printer for my problem resolution need when I went to your site. I have a Cannon iP90 not the PIXMAMP460



    Can you help with this printer? Problem is that the Black Ink will not print and this happened only when ink was out and inserting brand new cartridge. I then put in another new one because i thought maybe the first one was dry, it wasn't.



    Thanks

I had this problem with my iP90. I found a solution! I removed the print head (see Canon's support website above for removal instructions) and soaked it in rubbing alcohol for 10 minutes, dumped it out, poured fresh, and let it soak for another 10 minutes. Removed it from the alcohol and shook it off then dried the head with a hair dryer with a COOL setting. Returned it to the printer, returned the cartridges, and performed a deep clean in the Maintenance settings. Voila... it prints again!

You may need to install a new print head. it is very easy to do yourself (basically the same steps you used to install it when you bought the printer- you can also find step-by-step instructions with pictures on cannons support website http://www.usa.canon.com/opd/controller?act=OPDSupportDropDownAct) What has probably happened is that dried ink has accumulated on the print head and clogged it. the "clean print head" option on the printer is a maintenance function that should be performed regulary to prevent a clog; it is not effective at clearing an already clogged print head.

    After doing all the soaking in alcohol and several deep cleanings my printer still did not print black ink, so I reinstalled the software and changed the printer settings to FAST and the black ink is printing now...

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.

It is not printing using black ink. I have


Sounds like your black print head may be clogged. You can get a new one from Precision Roller for $60. Another fact that would confirm that your print head is clogged is if you let the printer sit for more than a few weeks without printing with it.

Canon iP90 will not print black text - it will print any other color text. When I print a test page - it only prints the small flag top left page. I have done a deep cleaning - three times. I have replaced...


hi karen,
If you are sure that the ink is present, there two other possibilities: Purge unit work properly so the ink cannot flow down from ink tank or Logic board of you printer is faulty.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


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.

Canon iP90 Printer Ink Issue


I have had the same issue with my iP90.  I think this results from the black ink nozzle becoming clogged.  I was able to get mine to print by cleaning the nozzles.To clean the print nozzles open the Canon IJ Printer Utility, select the printer from the list of available printers and click the maintenance button.  Then, select a cleaning or deep cleaning cycle.
