    how do you remove the printhead?

  • kttrigger1 Mar 26, 2009

    I have had my printer for about 8 months. I have had a few different types of problems. Anyway, the latest...It would not print anything with black ink. It would print with color ONLY. I believe I have a problem with the printhead. It is very frustrating. I guess I will have to look for a new printhead??

Above the thumb print in the printhead there is a button. Press button and printhead releases.

I was having problems in trying to remove a faulty printhead. It all started with asking Kodak for instructions for removing it,. The technician wasn't able to remove it. After they sent 2 printhead replacements in less then a year, they included a website which I was to go on to solve the problem. 2 hours later I found a website where someone(thank you whoever you are) suggested that you put your thumb in the middle of the top part of the printhead(after tthe ionk cartridges are removed) push toward the back gently & lift it out with your other hand, It came out quite easily. Why couldn't Kodak print insructions as such & better yet why couldn't they have a photo taken with a digital camera & sent it with their replacement parts or by e-mail. I realy feel Kodak & all other companies should be taken to task on this, They rely too much on websites to cover their inefficiences.

My printer keeps saying that the prinhead is missing and need to be installed, I took it out and installed it again and it keeps saying the same thing


it could be more serious, but I would put in the printhead and then unplug the printer and then wait a few seconds and plug it back in. it might clear the code. otherwise it might be your print head bad.

good luck

I haven't used my Kodak 5500 printer in a little over a week and now I'm trying to print out pictures and with a new black cartridge, it's like there is no black ink. However, I just printed out a word...


Since that you already did a good troubleshooting cleaning the printhead and calibrating It and replacing the printhead., I just want to ask this How many times you already replace a printhead if its newly installed it means the problem is in the printer itself and for that you need to call kodak for printer repair toll free 1 800 421 6699

Now if the replacement printhead is more than a month and you already did all the troubleshooting it means the nozzle of the printhead is clogged you need to call kodak for printhead replacement

Display says printhead not installed or loose


Make sure when you put it in, you are firmily pushing it towards the back of the printer, until you hear a loud snap. When you put it in the first time, DO NOT put the ink cartridges in. Close the cover and wait until it tells you that the ink cartridges are missing. If it is still telling you that the printhead is missing, it should be replaced. You may contact kodak support @ 1 800 421 6699, and have them help you to replace it, free of charge.

The printhead is not for sale.

IF after replacing the printhead you have the same problem, then is the printer the one that needs replacing.

Kodak ESP-3 Will not print calibration page. It goes thru the motions, spits out blank paper. This is supposed to happen prior to connecting to computer or installing software. Tried two printheads


I have severe and often different problems with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Sometime it`s banding of the colors, then I`ll align the printhead and I`ll have a color problem or no color at all. I just talked to Kodak Customer Service by phone, 11 a.m. PST. After a few automated questions I had a live operator in less than 3 minutes. The service tech went thru some diagnostic steps with me and the printer and after about the 5th step determined I had a faulty printer head. If the green on/off light keeps blinking when it shouldn`t be, that is a sure sigh of faulty printer head, it means the printer is not recognizing the head. Kodak seems to be very aware of this problem and are sending me a new printer head UPS, free of charge. After reading some previous reviews I`m suprised how good the customer service was. Maybe I just called at the right time and got lucky.
