ink system prime failure- the printer is no klonger able to hold pressure in the ink tubes- suggest you replace ALL PRINTHEADS in one go ( the problem may lie in just one printhead or the tubes themselves
If the prinhead replacemnet doesnt wotk then a new set of ink tubes and heads will be needed- this costs about the same as three new c6180 printers and is not worth the money- sorry for thew bad news
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.
My printer keeps telling me my printhead has come looose or is not properly installed to remove and reinstall the print head and the ink jets. I have done this three time. It is tight and properly installed. Now What?
Sounds like you need to replace the printheads. The business inkjet printers have seperate ink and prinheads. In home use printer models the printer cartridge is all in one with ink and printhead in one unit.
CHECK INK LEVELS RUN DIAGS AND IF YOU NEED A NEW PRINTHEAD TRY THIS;
try try again..........
I had this problem;
Printhead replacement instructions are in the users guide.
THIS WORKED FOR ME --AND IF YOU CALL THE TECH SUPPORT # KODAK WILL SEND YOU A REPLACEMENT HEAD........
Power on printer, the printhead rides on a carriage that is connected to the ribbon cable. When the printhead is in the center position and movement is stopped REMOVE THE INK CARRIAGES. DO NOT TOUCH THE INK-PADS OR THE CONNECTION POINTS. You can just place the ink carriages on their side on a clean piece of paper.
......... To separate the printhead from the carriage press the release botton(above the bulls-eye sticker) in the top center of the printhead. You will hear a click and the top of the prinhead will pop forward about 1/4 of an inch. GENTLY lift from back (where you pressed the botton) to front and lift the printhead up and out of the printer.
---------U will see where the printhead and the carriage connect-------
It is best (very important) to not touch the shiny contact area
Now you are ready to install your new printhead.
BE CAREFUL BE GENTLE............Place the new printhead into the carriage and again at the center top back bulls-eye press back until you hear the click and the printhesd is secured in the carriage.......... replace the ink carriages.......
I would power off the printer and wait about 60 seconds then power on and run self test.
TO RUN SELF TEST
power on the printer and wait until the printhead is in the center position THEN press photo and copy buttons at the same time, you will hear the printhead carriage start to move and a test print page will print.
CHECK for print quailty; run all diag. from the help tab as needed.
REMEMBER; IF YOU THINK THE PLASTIC WILL CRACK U ARE PRESSING TOO HARD....... KEEP IT CLEAN, BE SAFE
Unfortunately, the only way to possible fix this error is to get the printhead out and reseat it. You can do that by removing the ink cartridges. Right above where the black ink cartridge was, at the top left hand corner of the printhead, if you push up towards the ceiling there should be a button that releases the printhead. You should now be able to tilt the printhead forward and pull it out of the printer. Reseat the printhead by putting it back in the printer and pushing straight back on the back wall of the printhead. It should snap into place. Replace the ink cartridges and close the printer. If the error clears, download the newest firmware from kodak.com so this never happens again.
If these steps do not clear the error however, call Kodak AiO tech support at 1800 421 6699 to get a new printhead.
