We had the same problem and tried all steps Customer Service suggested each time; after several calls, it was determined we had a defective printhead... Kodak sent a new printhead, new ink cartridges w/ an envelope to return the ones I was using.
Apparently it's a common problem with this model; especially the earlier ones. Have had NO problems since the printhead was replaced.
I would suggest if you have recurring problems (even after Customer Service directives), call and ask if you might have a defective printhead.

you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll
need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your
ink while it does it.
youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

This is a common problem with Kodak 5000 series and ESP series printers.
Check the silver contacts on the ink cartridges for small scratches in the center. The scratches indicate that the ink cartridges have made contact with the appropriate connections in the printer. If no marks are visible, the cartridge was not seated properly. If the contacts look ok, you'll have to call Kodak again. It's highly likely that the recertified printer you received was returned for the same problem. If you point out the fact that you are experiencing the same problem for the second time, you may wind up with an upgrade to an ESP5. Don't accept another printhead replacement as thiat will not resolve the problem.

Kodak printer works with genuine Kodak cartridges and that too brand new not refilled cartridges. The brand new cartridges have a certain code that is recognised by the Printer.Kindly buy genuine cartridges as the printer may be damaged by Non comaptible cartridges.
