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

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.
You have air or dry ink in the nozzle chambers, you use the head cleaning facility but when it finishes it asks you to print a nozzle check pattern, click the finish button.
You need to do 4 head cleans and cancel the nozzle check print after each until the 4 are done then allow it to print the pattern.
This will prime your heads and clear out any air locks.
The only other thing I need to check, but it's a bit of a numpty suggestion. If you have not removed the yellow 'tear off' strips, no ink will flow and your chambers will be full of air. If this is what happened, remove the 'tear off' strips and carry out the procedure above.
I hope this helps.
You don't need the utility for this but it would be handy for you to have.
It is quite easy to find, it's on our home page and on the Epson page just below the big blue drop down menu box. It's simply a 'click here' link along side the text "If your printer needs resetting" etc etc.
could be that the heads are blocked !! try to make the maintenance procedure head cleaning and head flushing from the printer or from the pc select the printer and go to the printing preferences and select maintenance and continue from there and try ,if it does nt solve the problem try to clean the head manually with a soft cloth or there are special cloths for the heads .
Try brand new genuine cartridges, if that does not work, it is your printer's print heads. Canon has these built into the printer as opposed to having them built into each new cartridge. Sometimes cleaning the heads a few times does not do much at all.
On some occassions I have cleaned the print heads over 20 times and have succeeded eventually in getting it to print.
