I had same problem recently.
Solved by lifting top. Hold immediately under Kodak logo on machine front.
It is the same motion as lifting top tray,
Print-head has a release, at rear in line with top of black cartridge (which you will need to remove. Slide finger under ledge and pull up - gently.

Howdo you remove printerhead from Kodak 5500


Here is the manual for reference:

Kodak 5500 Manual

If you go to page 88, these instructions are given...with pictures.

1 Make sure the AiO printer is on.
2 Open the printer access door. The carriage moves to a center position.
3 Wait until the printhead is idle and silent, then pinch the pinch latch on the ink cartridge with your thumb and forefinger and lift it out of the print head. Remove both ink cartridges and place them on a flat surface with the ink pads up.
4 Unlatch the printhead by pressing the button in the upper-left corner of the carriage.
5 Remove the old printhead.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Wont print black


Ok. Remove both cartriges. Put them aside. Remove the new printhead from its bag and all the protection things. To remove the old one, press the button at the top left of the printhead. Put the new printhead in, secure it by pressing the sticker with the finger, and replace the cartriges and print the alignment page.
