SOURCE: Kodak 5500-printhead problems

I was having problems in trying to remove a faulty printhead. It all started with asking Kodak for instructions for removing it,. The technician wasn't able to remove it. After they sent 2 printhead replacements in less then a year, they included a website which I was to go on to solve the problem. 2 hours later I found a website where someone(thank you whoever you are) suggested that you put your thumb in the middle of the top part of the printhead(after tthe ionk cartridges are removed) push toward the back gently & lift it out with your other hand, It came out quite easily. Why couldn't Kodak print insructions as such & better yet why couldn't they have a photo taken with a digital camera & sent it with their replacement parts or by e-mail. I realy feel Kodak & all other companies should be taken to task on this, They rely too much on websites to cover their inefficiences.

SOURCE: replacing printhead in Kodak 5300 All in One Printer

Greetings Ladyediona,
Sorry to hear about your trouble. Sounds to me as though the issue is related to your print head and it needing replacement. The best way to do this is to call Kodak at 800 421 6699. The team there will help you get a new print head for your system. 
You can also go to the following web site to get the help you need and a new print head sent to you. Just complete the requested information and at the end of the review a screen is offered which will send a print head. Try visiting:
http://www.kodak.com/go/itg
Once you complete that process you can also ask the system for details on how to install the print head once it is delivered. There are instructions in the box as well. It is quite a simple process. 
Good Luck Lady, you should be back printing in no time if you haven't already.
Ron Baird the friendly Kodak guy

SOURCE: change printhead in 5500

To change the printer head on the Kodak 5500 AIO printer, you will need to do the following:

To remove the old printer head,

  1. Power on the printer.
  2. Lift up the lid to expose the printer head.
  3. Once the printer head moves to the middle, where you can get at it, then unplug the power cord to the printer.
  4. Remove the ink cartridges.
  5. With the printer head now empty, run your finder along the underside of the top of the printer head, all the way to the left side of the printer head.
  6. Push up with your finger where there is some give, and the shroud that holds the printer head will release the head.

To install the new head,

  1. Simply put it in place, and push forward with your finger on the sticker that shows a finger pushing on a sticker, and you will hear and feel it click into place.
  2. Reload your ink cartridges, close the lid, plug the printer back in and you're done.

I had the same problem and wasted money on 2 new cartridges before finding the answer on several blogs. Call Kodak Tech Support. In this case they are very good. Tell them the problem, they walk you through some steps and then give up. They will then send you out a new print head (a cheap and disposable device). I thought about buying another one for the next time things go bad but I can't find a source. They send it in 3-5 days, free. I think Kodak is embarrassed about their bad system (printheads should not go bad so fast!)

I haven't used my Kodak 5500 printer in a little over a week and now I'm trying to print out pictures and with a new black cartridge, it's like there is no black ink. However, I just printed out a word...


Since that you already did a good troubleshooting cleaning the printhead and calibrating It and replacing the printhead., I just want to ask this How many times you already replace a printhead if its newly installed it means the problem is in the printer itself and for that you need to call kodak for printer repair toll free 1 800 421 6699

Now if the replacement printhead is more than a month and you already did all the troubleshooting it means the nozzle of the printhead is clogged you need to call kodak for printhead replacement

Display says printhead not installed or loose


Make sure when you put it in, you are firmily pushing it towards the back of the printer, until you hear a loud snap. When you put it in the first time, DO NOT put the ink cartridges in. Close the cover and wait until it tells you that the ink cartridges are missing. If it is still telling you that the printhead is missing, it should be replaced. You may contact kodak support @ 1 800 421 6699, and have them help you to replace it, free of charge.

The printhead is not for sale.

IF after replacing the printhead you have the same problem, then is the printer the one that needs replacing.
