Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
New Cartridges were put in printer but neither will print
Kodak discontinued the whole 5xxx series because of all the problems those printers had. Try calling Kodak's tech support to see if they can send you new print head or reimburse you for the printer.

SOURCE: alignment after new cartridge
Hi I think that you will need to clean the gold dots on the printer carriage or if not done so remove the blue tape from the cartridge or if you are trying to use refills install some originals as this may help.
Hope this helps'
Please rate me

Remember to remove the Seal Tape
from the Top of the New Ink Cartridge as well as from the Bottom ! !
If a “Head Cleaning” cycle makes the Test Pattern worse, STOP.
Disconnect the Printer from the Computer.
Press the “Cartridge Change” button for ~ 3 Seconds.
When the Ink Cartridge Carriage travels to the Changing Position PULL THE POWER PLUG (NOT the “OFF” Switch). The Ink Cartridge Carriage should now Slide Freely on the Rail as long as it isn’t pushed to the Right so that it goes under the shelf to the “Homed and Locked” Position.
Fold up a Paper Towel (About 1 Sheet) so that its final width is about the same as the width of the gutter under the Print Head on the Carriage and so that it is thick enough when folded to contact and lightly press on the Print Head.
Saturate the folded Paper Towel with ~ 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and lay it in the Gutter.
Manually slide the Carriage and Print Head Over the wet Paper Towel. A slight amount of drag should be experienced if the thickness of the paper towel folds is Correct.
Let the Print Heads rest on the Saturated Paper Towels for a few Minutes or Hours. Too long a Treatment may pull out all of the Cartridge’s Ink: Check the Paper Towel Frequently to Assess if Ink is Capillarying out onto the Towel.
When the Treatment appears Successful remove the Paper Towel and Clean Up and plug the Printer power back in.
Run a Test Pattern via the Computer Connection WITHOUT first running the Head Cleaning Utility.
If the pattern isn’t OK, Try Running the Head Cleaning Utility to see if it makes it Better or Worse.
If Worse, Repeat the Alcohol Paper Towel Treatment: The Paper Towel may be Gently Pulled back and forth under the Print Heads to wipe them off.

Go to printers and faxes, and uninstall the printer.
reboot, this should solve the problem

They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.
