Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not print

The Kodak Easyshare 5500 that I bought last year and really is not used that much will not print in black - but does other colors such as blue. I have changed the printer cartridge but it does not fix the problem. I have been told it may be the printer head but dont have a clue. Can you give me some guidance? Thanks

  • Our 5500 suddenly began printing black text very faintly. It is readable but far from satisfactory. I have changed the black ink cartridge with no improvement.

5300 kodak printer black ink dont work


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
