OEM is an abbreviation for Original Equipment Manufacturer. These manufacturers produce the replacement ink or toner for copiers or printers and normally will put the manufacturer's name on the product, such as Canon, Hp, Sharp, Lexmark, Brother, Epson, etc.
Generic cartridges are specially manufactured to meet high standards of quality and reliability and offer high-quality printing results. Manufactured 100% brand new, containing only new components, they are an economical alternative to expensive name-brand cartridges and supplies, and allow for big savings over brand-name cartridges and supplies.
They are typically complex to manufacture and often Printer manufacturers have there cartridges protected by patents.
Remanufactured cartridges have been recycled to meet or exceed OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications. The recycling and reprocessing process involves disassembling, inspecting, cleaning, replacing worn parts, reassembling, and filling the toner or ink. Once the remanufacturing process is complete, the cartridge is then print tested, sealed, and packaged for resale.

How can I get dried ink out of my print head so I can print again?
Place the clogged cartridge in about 1/4 - 1/2 inch of warm water for a few minutes. When ink starts to slowly leak out take the cartridge out of the water and dry it using a soft cloth to "Q-tip." Then place it back in your printer and run the print head cleaning utility that comes with your printer software. You may have to run this 2-4 times before printing quality is re-established.
My cartridge is printing faded and print head seams to be clogged. What can I do to make it work?
You may try priming the cartridge. Priming the cartridge is a process that allows the print head to open up for the ink to come through. What you do is get a damp paper towel, press and hold on the print head (copper strip facing down) for around 20-30 seconds. This will bring the ink to the surface of the print head, open up and print heads that might be blocked and the flow of the ink will start again. Just put the cartridge back in the printer ready to use.
