Question about Canon BubbleJet i320 Printer
In this printer the head is separate from the cartridges and in a single block. The cartridges go in it and the block goes in the print head carrier. Because of that in time the connections between the head block and the carrier gets dirty and the heads can no longer communicate and be recognized by the mainboard of the printer.
To clean those contacts remove the cartridges and lift the grey lever that holds the print head block secure in the carrier - the lever goes up from the front and to the rear. Now just tilt the bloc forward and lift it up. With a rough piece of paper wash and clean the contacts at the rear of the block; then take a q-tip and clean the contact pins from the carrier. At the end put all back together and try again.
If the heads are still not recognized then the dirt has corroded the contacts. This is unfixable and because there are no replacement parts it means that the printer is dead. Time for a new one.
