Howdo you remove printerhead from Kodak 5500


Here is the manual for reference:

Kodak 5500 Manual

If you go to page 88, these instructions are given...with pictures.

1 Make sure the AiO printer is on.
2 Open the printer access door. The carriage moves to a center position.
3 Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the pinch latch on the ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the print head. Remove both ink cartridges and place them on a flat surface with the ink pads up.
4 Unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.
5 Remove the old printhead.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Hi!
You'll need to call KODAK to get a new printhead. The # is 1.800.421.6699. This is a very common issue, and they will give you a new printhead and a set of new ink.

Repalcing ink cartridges


Purchase the ink cartridges from a store or www.kodak.com. Open the access panel to where the ink is. Remove the old ink cartridge by pushing up on the bottom tab. Put the new ink cartridge in the slot and push down on the top tab. The ink cartridge should snap. Close the access panel and you should be good to go.
