Blurry photo print-outs


Hi Ashley
try printing a "nozzle check" and if any colour stripes look incomplete, "clean" or "deep clean" the printhead until you get a good result. You can find the cleaning and test utilities on "Maintenance" page in "Printer properties". Also make sure you're putting the paper in right way up.

Black printing is incomplete. faint, blurry, ghosts, erratic


More than likely your printhead is failing. This is a common problem with the i70/i80, i90/iP90v and i100. The printhead is easy to replace. Open the cover, let the carriage center, powerlift printhead frame lever and lift out printhead. You can test and/or clean the jets in the maintenance tab in the print driver.

My Kodak 5500 all in one prints blurry pics. I


Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
Is the Demo printout giving the same result?


If so, you may need to replace the printhead. This is a very common problem with this model.
You have to contact Kodak to be sent a new printhead to fix the problem. You click through the support on Kodak and then they automatically send out a new print head. To get the link to this on-line support chat with the live tech support and they can direct you where to go to find this solution. I dont remember the web link they directed me to but once there I answered a bunch of questions and got a new printhead in the mail pretty quick (no cost to me) and as of yet its been fixed.
Or Call Kodak:
Live phone support is available in English and Spanish at 1-800-421-6699, 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week.
When you get the printhead, here is how to replace it:

Fuzzy page continious.


Yeah I just read a tip. There seems to be a problem with the wave amp board, I will send you the engineering note. Sometimes though that encoder needs replaced and cleaning is not the total fix. The encoder may need replaced, but I found this also.

I just received this, this morning.



Failed Wave Amp
Solution: thumbsup.gif Fixed! thumbsdn.gif Did not fix. Historically blurry print was caused by oil on the drum encoder wheel. This can be caused by the wave amp board. A cracked capacitor on the board causes the wave amp to produce a malformed amplified wave signal to the printhead. This in turn causes the printhead to eject ink at the wrong times, so the prints look blurry.

You can generally distinguish a wave amp problem from an oily drum encoder. The wave amp problem will usually be an infant failure. The printer will start producing blurry prints soon after it is installed and running. With a failed wave amp all prints will be blurry with no improvement. The drum encoder, on the other hand, may produce good prints and then bad prints and then good prints. Blurriness changes depending on how the oil is interfering with the encoder.
