Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer
This is the way it was designed. Kodak uses pigment-based inks for these printers, and the colors simply are not as vibrant as dye-based inks. Kodak tech support told me this directly, and that's the way it goes. You might do better if you experiment with different papers, but if you just want it to print quality color documents like a good old HP, you are out of luck.
By the way, there were many horrifying design decisions made on these 5000 series printers. One of the worst is that if you are out of ink, the scanner doesn't work. Nothing works. You can't even turn it off. All by design according to Kodak... Ridiculous!
Their software is also extremely poor and slow. I tried removing it through add/remove programs on one machine, and it wouldn't remove, it would just go through the installation procedure.
I've kept my 5500, but it sucks. I'd love to throw it away and buy a real printer, but I am too cheap.
