Question about Canon i350 InkJet Printer
I used discount brands, Office Max brand, and finally Canon OEM. Returned same error message, "proper print head not installed."
big issue with remanufacturing is how integritous is the fit of the cartridge, and also the interface. When these are re cut, so to speak, tolerances can stack up, and one thing about Canon, is they are a stickler for tolerances. You may have an issue with the cartridge fitting in the carriage, but not interfacing with the system. Happens sometimes..

SOURCE: Black 3ek cartridge not printing
I had the same problem before with 3e black ink. It simply does not print too, so what I did if i get to print black and white i will set the characters into dark gray! it looks like draft printing but the things is it can be printed.. I tried to do every instructions available but to fail. I almost dump it till I decided to set it aside for a while. After a week I tried using it again, and it functions well. I guess the printer just want to say, "HEY BUDDY, GIVE ME A LITTLE BREAK!"

It is observed in branded printer not only lexmark also with HP printers yoou get this same problem.
It is always recomended to use genuine cartridges rather than refilled or any other brand ink cartridges.
As for HP cartridges they are all made under six sigma process where it is very rare you get a ink cartridge issue.
thats why HP Gives 18 months of replacement warranty on its cartridges
The same applies to Lexmark printers aswell
Make a habit of usig Genuine cartridges which will give value for your money.

ok I figured out what to do. Open the over take out all your ink cartriages. Then flip the print head level on the left hand side up and squeeze the top of the print head (where all your ink sits on) and lift it up. You may want to blow off any dust that may be in there and put the peint head back and replace al your ink put the level down and you should be good to go if not you may have to replace the head.

This is an example of why 2nd class refills are junk. I would try to gently clean the printer out. While a lot of people disagree with this advice, a mixture of 90% alcohol in a tiny pipit works well. Then use some lint free q-tips. Most cartridges have electronic chips on them that report the status of the cartridge. Refilled ink cartridges may have bad or defect chips.
