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

1 Answer

5500 Kodak printer

Will copy in color and b/wp but when I try to print in b/w, it prints prints only two lines in the top half of the page. I have reloaded soft ware and looked for any updates. I have replaced both color and B/W inks. I am using a Acer 5610Z laptop with Vista software. This computor and soft ware had been working and producing good results prior to this problem.

You need to clean the printhead to resolve this issue.
Pls. follow the instructions below:
1) power on the printer

2) press"menu" on the printer

3) scroll down to "clean printhead"

4) select "deep clean"

Perform deep cleaning 3x then try printing a demo sheet to check if the issue has been resolved.

I gave my dauther a kodak 5500 printer for christmas, it prints the test sheet ok but then does not print anyother pages. it has new ink both black and colored. thank you in advance for your help kelly c


This can be the issue with printhead if you are printing documents (black color can be missing from the print)

Try to print a picture from the computer, if it works then the issue is with black color (printhead needs replacement)
If nothing prints from computer then call kodak tech support (drivers will be re-istalled, delete the printer icon from Conntrol Panel > Printer and Faxes > Restart the computer > Connect the printer USB cable again.

Kodak 5500 EASYSHARE All in One Printer doesnt print black color


Try this one, Turn on the printer, Take out the inks, remove the printhead, put back the printhead make sure it will snap and you hear a click, put the inks back, wait for the printer to initialize, Press the Menu button, look for Calibrate printer, then print calibration page, then scan it after. Load a regular paper. Then try to print a demo page by pressing Photo and Copy at the same for 5 seconds then let it go. If same problem persist call this no for further assistance 1800 421 6699

It only prints light color ive replaced branw new


You need a new print head. Don't buy one, though. Phone Kodak (India) and get a new head. Or throw the stupid machine away. Kodak should be sued for producing such poor quality ****.
