Good Day: Although it is a common presumption that alcohol is always a good cleaner, in this case water without soap is the best. Did you say that you changed the cartridge or just the "Ink-Tank"? The cartrisge holds both the color and the black ink tanks. You can actually take the ink tanks out of the cartridge and submerse the cartridge in warm water and find that after you blow dry it gently with a can of aerosol "Dust-Off" that you can reinstall the ink tanks and then reinstall the cartridge in the printer and usually this works fine. Soak time is about 45-90 min and not in hot water only luke-warm water.

Humble Regards

This seems to be a comon problem with canon printers the black head is either dirty or needs to be replaced. canon should look into this

to clean heads use rubbing alcohol, cotton swab

put some rubbing alcohol on the cotton swab and gently rub the black portion of the head until it is clean

WON'T PRINT BLACK; I'VE REPLACED BOTH CARTRIDGES, CLEANED PRINT HEAD, TRIED CODES. ANYTHING ELSE? i'VE HAD IT A COUPLE YEARS.


Remove the cartridge and rub the ink head to a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows. And then run the print cleaning maintenance like print nozzle and print alignment page.

Please let me know if you need more help and please rate this solution.

Ip90 printer does not print blac on a test after


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.

Canon iP90 stopped printing in BLACK


hi... it might be that you need some time to let the ink absorb into the pads in the print heads ... this can take between a few hours and a day... Must be frustrating to deep clean three times and just seem that you are wasting ink cartridges, my "solution" would be to give it time or possibly clean the print heads manually.. hope it will solve it out..

thank u!!

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.

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.
