Try cleaning the print heads by this method:
1 Press Menu
2 Press the down arrow until "Clean printhead" shows.
3 Press OK
4 Press OK

If this doesn't work, then insert a step after 3: press down once to select the "deep clean." If this doesn't fix it either then you will need to replace the print heads. This document from Kodak will describe how to do that under "Maintenance"

Kodak 5500 printer won't print red

I also have this same problem. What works to a degree is to take out print head and SOAK IN WARM WATER. This will take out most all the ink residue and debris. Then dry off and reinstlal immediately. This worked for me but a month later, NO BLACK!

Kodak Easy Share 5500 will not print anything with black in it

Go here:

Within the tool, select Print quality, then No black, missing text, or text quality.

After answering all the questions (assuming you haven't abused your printhead) you will be prompted to enter a service number, name, and address to be mailed a replacement printhead.

I just went through this and was told my printhead would arrive in 2 to 5 business days.
