Hi There Your all-in-one printer is designed to stop printing before quality
is compromised. Make sure you always use KODAK Ink Cartridges. Kodak is
not responsible for the compatibility or performance of non-Kodak brand
ink cartridges or refilled ink cartridges. To purchase KODAK Ink
Cartridges, go to the KODAK Store.
To resolve the error, replace the black ink cartridge with a new cartridge:
Turn on your printer.
Open the access door. For printers with LCDs, follow the instructions on the LCD screen.
Open the printer cover with it turned on and connected to your pc. When you open the cover, the printer should bring the ink cartridge carrier to the front and center so you can access cartridges easily. Press or pull the plastic tab next to the ink cartridge that you wish to replace and it will pop it up towards you and out of the carriage. if there is no plastic tab to eject the cartridge, grab a hold of it with your finger and pull upward and out towards you. Don't worry about breaking anything or harming the cartridge. Once you remove the old one, remove the plastic tape tab on the new cartridge before inserting. Then close the printer cover and it should walk you through aligning the print heads on the display. Good luck!
On this particular printer there is no locking mechanism to access the ink cartridges. In order to open the cover, use a single open hand and place your fingers just underneath the screen on the front, and pull upward. The entire scanner piece should raise and a plastic bar on the right-hand side will lower down to prop it open.
If you're having a lot of trouble opening it, you may want to check around the sides of the printer to see if there is any tape leftover from when the printer was packed in its original box. When they ship a printer it is always covered in tape to make sure that nothing falls open or breaks before it's delivered, and there may be a piece of clear (almost invisible!) tape left over preventing the printer from opening.
Once it's open, the ink cartridges should come to the middle. Press down on the small lever on the print head (the ink cartridge holder) to pop the cover open so that you can install the cartridge.
These would be my recommendations, based on problems I've had with a similar printer:
1) Open the printer and pull the cyan cartridge back out.
2) Check the bottom of the cartridge to make sure there aren't any scraps of plastic or other material that might be preventing the printer from recognizing it.
3) Check inside the ink well (where the cartridge goes) to make sure nothing's stuck down in there that might be preventing the connection. Be careful and use a flashlight so that you don't accidentally break anything else (I've done that before).
4) If all of that is clear, re-insert the ink cartridge and push down (not too hard, but firmly) until it clicks into place.
5) If none of that works, the leads on the cartridge might have been damaged, or it might just be defective. You'll probably need a replacement toner cartridge at that point.
First you want to open the cover ,the ink cartridge holder will move into a position then stop it is now in the position to remove your ink cartridges !Now you want to press down on the semi-circular tab to release the carthridge and then remove it.It might seem stuck in there give it a little pull don't worry you wont break anything remember when there were installed they had to snap in....
You can refill cartridges only a certain number of times.
Check the copper contacts and see if they look like new. any amount of wear and they wont work anymore. That being said, All printer manufacturers say to buy new and not refill.Maybe that is a moneymaker for them, however, I have never had good luck with refilled cartridges.
Clean the contacts on the cartidge and printer ( open the replace ink door wait for the printhead to come to center and turn off power) if that does not work then replace cartridge, it might be a recycled one that they did not chane the chip.
