Was the green paper the type kids use in school. When my kids were little we called it contruction paper. If this is the case, your printer is smart enough to know that this paper is thicker than normal. It's responding as it should.

The printer can not print any paper

First of all we need to check weather it's a hard ware problem or software so try to copy something or press a self test page by pressing the x button and the colour copy button together if that prints fine then it means that its a software issue now click on the start button go to control panel then open printers right click on printers and go to properties print test page from there if it prints a blank page then go to the advance tab of properties and go to print processor then select "winprint" and in next line select RAW now try to print
if still the same then check the operating system if its windows Xp then it should be service pack 1 and above if you do not have service pack download the windows xp service and install it now try to print if still the problem persist then please post the exact model number of the printer and the operating system on your computer

Won't print on regular paper

My quess would be that printhead is becoming clogged, photos don't use as much ink as plain paper printouts that is why they look faded! You need to call Kodak tech support!
