    Thank you for your help. I called Kodak support and they had me do basically the same thing you suggested. Unfortuntely, it didn't help. They sent me a new print head at no charge since the printer was purchased only one month ago.

    Nothing but trouble with my Kodak printer, from ink being used up, (15% loss on a new cartridge just from running a test page)..to needing a printhead. I had an old printer for 4 years that I paid $29 for and it worked like a charm..ink was a bit more expensive..II am using that printer again..I will never buy another Kodak printer. Good luck when the printhead goes out again!! That one will cost ya $40.00! And won't last long either..

HTML clipboardHi
Here are a few possibilities...
1. Try cleaning the contacts on the print head and where they make contact inside the printer. (use cotton wool and Alchol) if that does not work...
2. Pull out power cable from printer wait 1 MINUTE then insert cable and switch back on again. (some printers reset to factory settings)
3. Remove printer cable from computer... Uninstall Printer driver from computer... Switch off both printer and computer. Wait 1 minute... Reconnect cables and switch on printer and computer... Allow computer to find printer... reinstall driver.


Good Luck!

Printhead Loose or missing. Install printhead or ink cartridges.


THE PRINT HEAD is the LASER that puts the image on the drum which puts the image on the transfer belt then paper or the drum puts on the paper. Missing the Print Head !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! did you get it second hand? Not something you can get at a store. Contact the company and see about it being repaired.

I have changed out my black ink cartridge and now it says Attention: Print head loose, missing or not installed correctly.


Had exactly the same issue - working fine until ink cartridge changed (kodak for kodak - not a copy). Then can only get 'print head error message'.
Multiple attempts to remove and re-install, power on/off etc. but can't shift the error message. New print head more expensive than a new printer!

Error message: Printhead missing, not installed correctly or has come loose


In regards to the error message with the printhead missing or come loose......I had that issue just shortly after I installed my printer. I was going crazy trying to fix it taking it out and reinstalling which was a pain, removing the cartridges and then the printhead to no avail. Finally I got smart and disconnected the power cord from the printer itself, not directly from the outlet. Once I did that and turned the printer back on the error was gone. It might have been a fluke, but it worked for me, so you might want to try it.
