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 important point is moving the head to the left, or sliding it left or right, so you can actually SEE the LEVER. It is hidden otherwise and what appears to be the obvious lever on the top is the wrong lever. If you have pressed the correct lever the unit removes very easily. If it is hard and you cannot make progress chances are you have not found the correct LEVER!

SOURCE: how to replace canon print head printer ip90

After you open the cover and the carriage comes to the center for new ink, you press the resume button for a few seconds and the carriage will go to the printhead changing position. You don't want to ever force the printhead to move. Hope you didn't break something already. Sorry for the stupid help.

We are trying to get our iP90 printer to print. We have cleaned the print head, replaced both black & color ink. We have done a deep cleaning several times, cleaned with alchol & cotton q-tip....


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My CaNON ip90 PRINTER SAYS "ERROR" WHEN TRYING TO


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

My Canon IP90 printer in printing blank paper


If the inkjet printer has not been used for some time, and the ink cartridges are full then the print head nozzles may be blocked. If running the maintenance nozzle cleaning does not clear the print head nozzles then the print head will need to be replaces.
NOTE - inkjet print heads are not cheap, it may be better to purchase a new injet printer.

My new canon ip90 printer won't print anything goes through all the motions but no ink comes out. brand new cartridges in it?


Is the shipping cover still on the printhead? If it has been removed, wipe the printhead with a damp paper towel to see if the head is plugged. If ink is present on the towel, do a print head clean from the maintenance menu.

Canon Pixma iP90 - Jagged text and lines


The printer has a plastic band that runs from one side to the other. The print head has a sensor that passes over it each time it moves. The band is a little transparent and appears to have vertical lines in it. That needs to be cleaned. 
  1. Remove power from the printer, 
  2. Wipe it clean, 
  3. Move the head manually to other side to clean the other areas.
Hope this helps.

IP90 WONT PRINT BLACK


I had this problem recently with my IP90. Both the black and color heads were clogged. After running the "canned" routines several times to clean the heads and deep clean the heads...still didn't help...here's what I did:

1. open the top lid to have the cartridges that are inserted in the print head move to the middle of the printer.
2. remove both cartridges
3. What is left there is the print head holder. Slightly move it to the right and gently lift the print head lock.
4. Grasp the print head and lift it out of the tank.
5. Have several paper towels hand and know that you will have color and bw ink on your fingers
6. Put the print head on the paper towel
7. Pour rubbing alcohol on the blk and color heads and let them sit of about 10-15 minutes.
8. after that dry the heads and re-insert them in the printer
9. I put new cartridges in the printer and ran clean and deep clean a few times.
10. My color and black and white print came right back!

Hope this helps.

Print head for canon ip90


There is a very easy fix for a Canon IP90 not printing either color or black. I just fixed mine a few minutes ago. Go to the local Dollar store and buy some nail polish remover. Then open up the printer, remove the ink cartridge(s) and put a few drops of nail polish remover in the hole that receives the ink. Works like a charm and fixed mine in just minutes. After inserting the polish remover (actually just Acetone with some glycerin) reinsert the ink cartridge and do a deep clean using the Canon utility from the Control Panel under "Printers > Properties > Maintenance (right click on the Printer icon in Control Panel to start)." You can also simply use acetone. Another trick is to remove the print head which holds the ink cartridges (although I could not figure out how to do this but it's doable) then put a paper towel soaked with distilled water (tap water probably OK) in the microwave, heat the towel and quickly put the print head on the hot paper towel. As a last resort simply order a new print head from the Internet and replace the print head. I would presume it would come with instructions for removing the old print head.
