Kodak printer 5500 will not print in black

Cannot fiqure out how to replace printhead on Kodak 5500 printer. my kodak 5300 has new ink cartridge but will not print black just color. I have tried everything i was told to do but still no black just color. My printer is close to a year old and has been very close to unreliable. I have an older HP that never fails. When the kodak does finally print it is great.

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!)

Kindly reseat the cartridges 2 times and then close the access door .Click on Menu on the printer and scroll down and choose Clean printhead and select "deep cleaning"
Print a demo sheet after the cleaning process has been completed. If ur issue persists, Call Kodak @ 1800 421 6699 and they will replace printhead of the printer free of cost.
Printhead is the part which takes the ink out from the cartridges. Probably the printhead of the printer has gone bad..

Wont print black


Ok. Remove both cartriges. Put them aside. Remove the new printhead from its bag and all the protection things. To remove the old one, press the button at the top left of the printhead. Put the new printhead in, secure it by pressing the sticker with the finger, and replace the cartriges and print the alignment page.

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


Go here:

http://www.kodak.com/go/aiotroubleshooting

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.
