It sounds like a mechanical problem if it will not come down with enough force. Did you accidently force it up too high?

Change printhead in 5500


To change the printer head on the Kodak 5500 AIO printer, you will need to do the following:

To remove the old printer head,
  1. Power on the printer.
  2. Lift up the lid to expose the printer head.
  3. Once the printer head moves to the middle, where you can get at it, then unplug the power cord to the printer.
  4. Remove the ink cartridges.
  5. With the printer head now empty, run your finder along the underside of the top of the printer head, all the way to the left side of the printer head.
  6. Push up with your finger where there is some give, and the shroud that holds the printer head will release the head.

To install the new head,

  1. Simply put it in place, and push forward with your finger on the sticker that shows a finger pushing on a sticker, and you will hear and feel it click into place.
  2. Reload your ink cartridges, close the lid, plug the printer back in and you're done.

Cannot install firmware


What version of Windows you have? or MAC? Make sure you are downloading the right firmware to your printer otherwise it will not install or even damage the printer!! I updated the firmware on my Kodak 5500 printer and had no problems. Try calling Kodak, 1-800-421-6699, they will be happy to help you.

Well, here is the proper way of fixing or troubleshooting that paper jam error in your printer

Open the printer access door and remove both of the ink cartridge, then remove also the printhead, after that close the printer access door, without those parts. Then it will show a message in the printer screen, "Printhead is missing or has come loose" or "Printhead Not Detected" Install the printhead, just the printhead without the ink cartridges. After that close the printer access door. Then it will show you a message"Ink cartridges is not installed,install ink cartridges". then open again the printer access door, then install the black ink cartridge without the color ink cartridge. then close the printer access door, then message must be " Color ink cartridge is not installed, install color ink cartridge" then install the color ink cartridge." the message must be,"New printhead is detected calibration require, load paper and press start"

Thats the way of overiding the paper jam error message of your kodak all in one printer
hope this will help you guys

Fatal printer error


1. First open the top of the unit remove the ink tanks and set them aside.
2. Remove the printhead and then unplug the printer. re-insert the printhead back into the printer. Remove it again and re-insert it. Do this 3-5 times. If you need help doing this, there are instructions on installing a printhead in the electronic manual PDF file provided by Kodak. (What this removal and re-install is doing is scraping of anything that might be disrupting the contact between the printhead and the printer)
3. Now install the printhead and install the ink tanks.
4. Plug in the printer want for it to bootup.
5. If the error comes up again you need to contact to Kodak about getting a new printhead or Return your printer and exchange if for a new one.

Also do be sure to update your software and printer firmware through the Kodak site or through the software provided. These printers print nice photos and the ink is cheep. Dont let this road bump turn you away from them.

Kodak and or I am not responsible for any data loss or any damage to any equipment that occurs as a direct or indirect result of following the procedures described above.
