Canon i90 not printing black ink

My canon ip90 will not print black ink any more. It started going and a white streak seemed to be going through all the black. I've cleaned the nozzles and printer heads so many times that now no black prints all now. I've replaced the ink but it seems totally blocked. Also when looking inside the printer there seems to be some loose black ink on the right side. Can you help me?

    I replaced both black and color inks in the printer. I followed steps for aligning the printer after installation, however, now black does not print at all. I thought it might have been a bad cartridge so I opened another new one and it doesn't print. I cleaned, deep cleaned, aligned, re-aligned the first new printer cartridge that I installed and have done the same with the second new cartridge. Any clues?



    Thanks,

    Chris

You may be able to save the unit by cleaning with a qtip and some Fedron. Fedron is designed to clean platens and parts in printers and typewriters (it's original use). You can do a search on the web for locations that carry Fedron. Be extremely careful around any plastic parts becasue Fedron will eat/melt most plastics.

I have a Canon Pixma i90 printer and I keep getting error message "color ink tank not installed" and it has already been installed.


There's a small switch under where the ink tank goes on the left side of the carriage. You have to make sure you install the right side of the ink first, under the lip, and then press down the left side. When the switch goes bad, you need a new carriage which means you get a new print engine. Costs as much as a new printer.

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 - 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 according to reports i found on this site, 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 - there are some great tips in the forum posts for this.

Hope you problem sorts itself out soon - take care

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.

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.

My ip90 Canon printer only prints in purple


Try selecting an option in the printing properties to print in grayscale or black and white (you usually only have either one or the other). This will utilise ONLY the black cartridge, the color will remain dormant which should make your prints come out in black and white - if not, your black cartridge, or the space between the bottom of the black cartridge and the paper is contaminated with color ink. Good luck!
