I'm having this same problem with both black and a color cartridge. I see the small scratches, so looks like they are connecting all right. The new cartridges are Kodak brand, so that's not the problem. I'll try calling them about the print head if that might be the problem.
Clean the gold section of the print cartridge's with a wet paper towel. Also clean the gold surfaces where the cartridge meets the printer. Wipe the contacts clean with a dry paper towel once you get no ink back on the wet paper towels. Allow about an hour for the printer to dry. Reinstall the cartridges and try printing.
printers do not like being left unused. The color print head may be blocked. Try
several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print
nozzles. If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this
problem. NOTE the print head is not a cheap item,
you may consider putting the money towards a new and better
I fixed my ESP 3250 print problems by removing the cartridges and print head. Using a Q-tip and warm water, added drops of water to each of the print head ink wells until the water / ink from the wells bled thru onto a cleanex. Did this several times. Dryed the print head fairly well. Then added a drop of water to each cartridge for each color. Reasembled and ran an alignment and to my surprise, it works! I hadn't used my printer in a while, so the ink had dryed on the felt for both the print head and cartridges.......
Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 85% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following: Are you using a manufacturer’s factory new ink cartridge or toner? I f you are using a refilled (worst possible choice) cartridge , toner or ink, or third party cartridge (2nd. worst possible choice) that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges. They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead. If you are using the manufacturer’s new ink cartridges, then please contact their technical support group.Factory new cartridges usually have warranties on them. Don

Printer works on a combination of both black and color ink to print those perfect pictures and documents.
If it is showing color ink needs replacement,you ve 2 change it in order to print even in black and white.
take out both cartridges from ur printer,install them again. ry to print again.kodak printers works on the mechanism that even if ur printing black and white documents, it will take ink out of colour cartridge as well . try to upgrade the firmware of ur printer by going to www.kodak.com/go/downloads and downloading latest firmware from there on ur desktop,connect ur printer to computer and run that file. restart ur printer,ur issue will be resolved.
