SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Canon iP90 Printer Problem
I have 2 MP 390s. On one the print head is stuck on right and does not move. On the second the black ink does not print but everything else seems to be fine. How can I remove the print head from the stuck machine and place it on the other one?

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.
