How do I clean toner from machine?


Probably it's the jammed paper that might caused the error. I suggest have it serviced by the technician. Be aware of the paper handling capacity of your machine to minimize jamming:

Red and green light turn after first run


Its common problem in T Series Plotters:
Cause of malfunction: These plotters having separate sheet path as well as roll path for print media. After initializing plotter its verify the available media(sheet or roll). If sheet path is occupied by the media it wont allow the roll media, means first priority is for sheet.If sheet path paper sensor dusty or malfunction, printer will say "remove paper from sheet path" even no paper in sheet path..
How to shoot this problem:
You need to clean sheet path sensor located at sheet loading area.(black 'U' shaped part) Applying the pressured air at sensor is the best method to clean.. If problem remain you need to remove the sensor & clean or replace it.
Follow the snaps:

Black cartridge replaced still says it needs replacing?


Clean the print head then print a demo sheet.

  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Print head Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.

Printing below standard


The problem could very well be clogged ink or air bubbles. There's no need to perform the regular cleaning any more as if it didn't solve the problem in the first few tries, it wont help, more force is needed.
You can perform a powerpurge (takes more ink, uses more force, solves more clogged ink), to perform it, follow these steps:
  • Enter maintenance mode, press menu, 2, 8, 6, 4 quickly (in two seconds).
  • When the buttons are flashing and the display says Maintenance, press 7, 6.
  • The display should now say "CLEANING ALL", press 3.
  • Now it should say something among the lines P_PURGE or POWER_P. Press Mono/Black Start.
  • After cleaning is done, you will get back to Maintenance. Press 9,9 to leave service mode again.
If the problem isn't solved now however, chemicals would probably be needed to solve it, as this is pretty much the only "function" you can use.

Not printing


Clean the printhead, then print a demo sheet.
  1. Verify that inkjet paper is loaded in the paper trays.
  2. On your desktop, start the KODAK All-in-One Home Center, then select the Help [?] icon.
  3. From the Help menu, select Maintenance, then select Printhead Cleaning. The On/Off light flashes green during the cleaning procedure.
  4. When the On/Off light glows a steady green, press Photo and Copy simultaneously to print a demo sheet.
Is the Demo printout giving the same result?
If so, you may need to replace the printhead. This is a very common problem with this model. Call Kodak, they will send you a new print head, if the unit is under warranty.
Live phone support is available in English and Spanish at 1-800-421-6699, 9 A.M. to midnight Eastern time, 7 days a week.
The expected wait time for phone support is 15 minutes.

    If all lines are clear and visible, press 1 (YES) and press Stop/Exit.
    If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
  7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
  8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
    Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
  9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.
  10. If you can see missing short lines in any of the four color blocks press 2 (NO) and repeat the quality check and cleaning process. Repeat this procedure at least 5 times if print quality remains a problem. If short lines are still missing after the fifth cleaning and test print, replace the necessary ink cartridges. If the print quality of the 4 color blocks is OK, press 1 (YES).
Setting the Alignment:
  1. Press the Ink or Ink Management key on the control panel.

    If one of the other samples is a better match for the 0 sample, press 2 (NO). The display will then prompt you to select the sample that most closely matches the 0 sample for 600 DPI and then 1200 DPI.
  7. Press Stop/Exit.
