Kodak 8500 prints black (purple) sheet only

Last time i used the printer it worked fine. Today, it showed up with no print driver so the only one on the list was for the easy dock so i picked that....it now only prints black. I tried to download the driver form Kodak's page but cant get it to install. I am on a brand new mac running leopard.
thank you in advance.

KODAK 5300 PRINTER IS PRINTING PICTURES WITH A PURPLE TINT TO THEM


Kodak EasyShare 5000 series

Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

If the Demo print is bad- IE: no black, blurry print etc., then you may need to replace the print head:

Thanks, Joe

I have a Kodak easyshare all in one printer 5100


You need to clean the printhead of the printer to solve that

issue. Because everytime you print, excessive inks are going

to the printhead that's the reason why it's clogging the

system up. That's because Kodak printers is using

"pigments" as inks that's why Kodak printers are producing

high quality prints unlike other printers - a photo printed from

kodak could actually last for about 100 years. Now back to

your issue, you need to clean the printhead from the printer

but not manually. You could clean it by going to the

software of the printer namely the KODAK HOME

CENTER SOFTWARE. You need to click the "?" mark

icon on the upper right corner of the software window then

under the General Links select Maintenance then choose

Clean Printhead. Do it at least twice and then try making

prints. If that still doesn't work try calling Kodak Technical

Support Representative: 1-800-421-6699

I hope I have been some of help. ^_^

Black in photos - Yes Black in DIN-A4-prinitings - No


print a demo sheet. Press copy and photo at the same time. Look at the eyes on the two kids in the picture, if they're coming out all white, your printhead is clogged. Do a printhead cleaning, if that doesn't work, call kodak, you need a printhead.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Printing too dim to read or see...black and color ink is brand new.


You'll need another printhead and before you say this is a terrible inconvenience remember that with any other printer you replace the printhead with every new ink cartridge. Printheads aren't supposed to last a long time and depending on the amount of printing, they really aren't even supposed to last a long time.

Try these steps. Open the printer, remove the ink and remove the printhead (See User's guide). Reseat the printhead and the ink cartridges. The printer will come up with an error message that requires calibration. Do the calibration and scan the sheet that prints right after by pushing the start button. In the menu options, clean the printhead. Do one basic and one deep. Print a demo sheet (another menu option) to see if the quality has gotten better. If it has not call Kodak AiO Tech support. You will need a replacement printhead.
