Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Colors in printout are washed out. replaced ink cartridges and ran the head clean utility, but no change.
Hmmm, try to reset the printer setting in the menu. It is under the main menu, last item. Then, make sure under the photo printing or whatever you are doing that the brightness is not turned up. I have had that happen to me.

ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the
cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you
have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in
the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test
