Cannon IP 90 Printer

After I replaced the color ink tank the printer only printed in red and black but not in any shade of blue.

I took out the color ink tank again with much difficultly, replaced the ink tank again, but not the ink tank arm did not return to the right, like before.

I think I may need physical help with the printer.

Your tech suggested that I remove both of the ink tanks (black & color) and turn off the printer and then re-start the printer.
After I did that, there was no futher problem, and the printer worked fine with appropriate colors.

Remove all cartridges, clean the ink from where the cartridges make contact with cloth,(paper towels can leave trash in there) be sure all is clean then replace the cartridges and print something. Those streaks shouldn't be there any longer.

It looks like the blue print head is blocked, have a look on ebay, you can get head cleaning kits for just a few £/$.

Wont print out document in blue print


Sorry your having this issue. Because Blue is a lite shade of Black, or a combination of red yellow and green ???? Point is even if you have only a black ink cartridge, or only color cartridge. Blue should be visiable and able to print.
Good luck, jasahasch

Printer not printing


find the maintance section of your print driver display ( far right of the display ) should see a maintance tab.
do a cleaning cycle or a deep cleaning cycle and see what happens. it should start printing.
if necessary make up a solid single color block on a windows word doc using the squares make them no line perimiters and do a black blue red and yellow about 1/2 inch tall and 7 inches wide
as a test pattern. the color that doesnt print is clogged
in the future try not to let the inks run completly dry before they are replaced.
if that doesn't help use isoprople alcohol 91proof on a cotton swab or clean cloth and let the print head soak in it for 5 minutes and try again.

Canon i960 will not print in black ink


Yep same as above. Black prints very light gray after 5 years of good printing. Tried every test, replaced black cartridges with different brands. Just wondering if somehow you can clean the heads. I'm convinced the black head is almost totally clogged. Does anyone know how to remove the printer heas to do this?

I have a cannon mp830 wont print


Solution: Insert one of each color ink tank MP830

New Page 1 More Than One of the Same Ink Tank is Installed When installing or replacing an ink tank, only one of the following ink tanks should be installed. If the ink tank is not installed correctly, an error message will display. mp500_inktankorder.gif
  1. Confirm that the printer is powered on and press the Open button. (The paper output tray will open.)

  2. Lift the scanning unit (printer cover) completely. (The print head will move to the replacement position.)

    Note: When the scanning unit (printer cover) is opened more than ten minutes, the print head moves to the right side. If this occurs, close the scanning unit (printer cover), and open it again.

  3. Open the inner cover.

  4. Press on the tab to release the ink tank, then remove it from its slot. If you are replacing multiple ink tanks, make sure to replace one by one.

    Note: Ink Tank LampYou can check the status of each ink tank according to the way its lamp flashes.
    • - On: The printer is ready to print.
    • - Slow flashing (at about three second interval): Ink is low. Prepare a new ink tank.
    • - Fast flashing (at about one second interval): Ink tank is empty, or the printer is not ready due to an error.
    • - Off: An error has occurred and the printer is not ready to print.

  7. Close the inner cover and the scanning unit (printer cover). Note:

Check the capabilities of the printer in the manual. But in general- to get black general purpose printers print all colours. This is the normal way to get a black black in the CYMK process. Some printers offer black only as a setting or a special black/monochrome ink. Some specialist ink suppliers[Lycos] will offer a 'black set' that is where the colour carts are replaced with a shades of grey. Where does your printer come in this scheme of things also take a look here www.fixyourownprinter.com
