Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.

SOURCE: Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 will not print with black ink

Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.

Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

SOURCE: Kodak printer 5500 will not print in black

I had the same problem and wasted money on 2 new cartridges before finding the answer on several blogs. Call Kodak Tech Support. In this case they are very good. Tell them the problem, they walk you through some steps and then give up. They will then send you out a new print head (a cheap and disposable device). I thought about buying another one for the next time things go bad but I can't find a source. They send it in 3-5 days, free. I think Kodak is embarrassed about their bad system (printheads should not go bad so fast!)

My 5500 printer is printing blank pages - can you help?


Hi

Does the ink cartridges are new or old? How long did you stop printing? Because if you stop printing for a very long time, the ink dries up and you need a little cleaning for the print head. Remove the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows and the run the cleaning maintenance like print alignment or print nozzle.

Please let me know if you need more help.

The printer is printing blank pages it is a kodak all in one 5300 lazer printer


Try removing all of the paper in the tray, fanning it and replace it. This sometimes happens when pages stick to each other. i've seen static electricity do this in the winter, and humidity do it in the summer.

In fact, I had a similar problem with my Kodak 5500 just yesterday. We've had 9 inches on rain in the past 2 weeks, and the air has been excessively humid. When I picked up the pages to reinsert them in the tray I could feel the dampness in the paper.

Prints Blank Pages...even though ink is full.


problem is likely to be the print head, the ink can dry up inside the print head and block fresh ink from flowing.

you can get print head cleaning solution from ebay, which sometimes works, or else go here to get your replacement print head

Printing blank


Hello,
The first thing you need to do is disconnect the printer from your computer, and try to print a demo sheet directly from the printer's control panel, then try to make a copy if the copy comes out right, that means you have a problem with your software or computer, so you should call them again and tell them the problem is still there, but only when you print from your computer.

Printing on 4 by 6 photo paper


What program are you trying to print from? and where are you selecting the paper size from? Make sure 4x6 is selected in the kodak driver and 4x6 is selected in the page set options in your program. Other wise you may need to download new software and firmware from the Kodak Site.
