I had this problem;
Printhead replacement instructions are in the users guide.

THIS WORKED FOR ME

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

Take out the ink cartrages first. you will see a bulls eye with a finger to push. right above the bulls eye there is a tab,( the tab is not part of the printhead tray just a release button) push tab and printhead tray will release take out and replace with new one. also replace both black and color cartrages as to insure maximum operation of unit. old cartrages may hender performance of unit because of cleaning attempt.

Hi

Did you check the connections in the carriage if there is little amount of ink on the contacts? if not then clean it well with a dump cloth and try to re-install the old printhead it will sure accept it. If not then the other way is to change system date of the printer first and then try again.

remove the ink. on the left side of the printhead (the old one) there should be a button you can depress near the top. push it and the printhead should come off. put the new printhead on and push it where there is the sticker until it clicks into place. remember! take off all the things on the new printhead. I think it's orange?

Need instructions for putting in a new printhead


Hello ahieser,

To remove the old printhead, you need to remove the ink cartridges first. And then remove the printhead by pushing the button at the top of the printhead while disengaging it from the carrier.

Printhead Installation Instructions


You can download the user manual from Kodak. It will give you the info you need. It is a little trick to get the old printhead out, but it snaps into place at the top, so that is where you need to release the old one.
