Here are the things you will be asked to try if you call support. They may fix the problems as well. Taking the printhead out and putting it back in is the big helper.
Remove the black and color ink cartridges.
Right above where the black ink cartridge was, in the top left hand corner of the printhead, push up towards the ceiling and you should be able to push a button that releases the printhead.
Place the printhead right back into the printer and push straight back on the back wall.
You should hear a loud snap.
Replace the ink cartridges which should snap as well.
Close the printer.
After about a minute or so the printer will ask you to do a calibration.
Insert a paper and press start.
Scan the calibration sheet.
After that, in the menu, do a printhead clean.
(If this is a 5100, do it in the home center ->? in the top right ->Maintainence ->Clean Printhead.)
Do one basic and one deep.
Print a demo sheet to see if anything has changed.
If the picture looks better, continue to do cleans.
In the event that it does not, the printhead will need to be replaced and since the printer is still under warranty, Kodak specialists will try to overnight you a printhead.
The whole process is short and free.
The number for Kodak AiO Support is 1 800 421 6699.

turn off your printer. Press and hold down the left arrow and the transfer button, turn on printer while holding them down, you should hear your printer make some noises, This will be the head lining up. Open the side door to gain access to the cartridge, push on it to see that it i s"locked" in. Lift up on the Green release button on the inside and your cartridge should come free on its own. Be careful not to try and pry it out for this can void your warranty! http://www.wonderhowto.com/how-to/video/how-to-remove-a-stuck-cartridge-on-a-kodak-g600-printer-dock-249276/view/

Turn the power off. Hold down the transfer button, on the left side, and at the same time hold down the left arrow button, on the right side. Holding both buttons, turn power on. You should hear it recycle. After it stops, push in the cartridge in until it locks. Then you should be able to release the catch and remove the cartridge. I had the same problem, found this on the web and it worked for me. Hope it does for you, too.
