You'll need to call KODAK to get a new printhead. The # is 1.800.421.6699. This is a very common issue, and they will give you a new printhead and a set of new ink.

Black ink not printing or very light or split. Have installed new ink cartridges. Getting some color and headings or seals. But mostly Blank!


Usually when you install new cartridges,the printer print an alignment sheet.
in case if the printer isn't printing the colors okay,
you can try cleaning the cartridges by going to the printer drivers,
goto the control panel--->printers and faxes--->rt click the printer icon and goto properties,under properties there should be an option for either maintenance or service this device button,when you click it ,it gives an option for aligning the cartridges,
you can also goto the printing preferences and it allows you to adjust the color
there is an option to clean ink cartridges

It only prints light color ive replaced branw new

You need a new print head. Don't buy one, though. Phone Kodak (India) and get a new head. Or throw the stupid machine away. Kodak should be sued for producing such poor quality ****.

After placing two new cartridges in printer, printer will not pri

Sounds like the print head is either clogged or the replacement cartridges you purchased are dry/defective. Try performing a head cleaning cycle and check the cartridges for proper ink flow. To do this, pull the cartridges out and blot them on a paper towel. If the color flows fine from the cartridge, then most likely there is dried ink in the actual printhead and it will need to be cleaned.

Check this out and see if it corrects your issues.
