press the menu button on the printer and go to clean print head and do a basic clean........make sure you are using genuine Kodak ink cartridges as there are retailers selling refilled and look alike.........if you still have same issue then its a print head issue and call kodak tech support they will replace it for you without any charge....let me know if this was helpful.........
My Kodak 5300 is only a year old and I had the same problem with the over exposed look of my pics. I called Kodak and they sent me a new printhead and voila! It is fixed. I love the printer. I think that because the ink is not ink but pigment, the printhead goes bad faster than normal printers.
My solution was to dump the Kodak printer, and reinstall a 4 year old HP printer collecting desk in my house. WORKS GREAT! I fiddled around with the Kodak printer head and wiped/cleaned the insides, and it worked for a couple days. Then it started having the same problems again (see above.)
You have a few options. 1. Use the Printhead cleaning in the Kodak Software this is recomened way and the safest but will use ink each time. 2. Get a T-shirt or another type of cloth that wont leave lint, get some distilled or de-ionized water (tap will work but not as well) and mannually clean the printhead. To do this remove the printhead and look at it. you should only wipe with the nozzels groove. go with the grain not against it. you dont need to put alot of pressure. Place the nozzels on a wet area of the cloth wipe in the directions of the nozzels you can do this on a flat surface or use your fingers to press against. 3. Call kodak say your printhead is dead and you would like a replacement. They should not charge you for it because its not your fault that it does not work.
Go to the Kodak.com website and follow their prompts to reach Customer Support for the AiO Printer(s). Had similar issues with mine and they resolved my problem overnite by sending me a replacement part.
